Forest City Spanish Church, Altamonte Springs, Fla. celebrated its annual Men’s Ministries Day on September 7. The guest speaker for Mega Sabbath 2013 was DeVon Franklin, vice president of Columbia Tristar Pictures, Hollywood, Calif., who inspired the capacity audience representing 30 Adventist churches and organizations.

Franklin, a studio executive responsible for the production of films such as The Karate Kid, The Pursuit of Happiness, and Jumping the Broom, is also a book author and motivational speaker. Most importantly, he is a devoted Seventh-day Adventist whose testimony of faith is powerful in today’s society.

This worship experience was a celebration of Forest City’s current and future Men’s Ministries vision: engaging men to find their purpose and challenge themselves to reach out to the community to bring back those who have drifted away from the church and those who have not had the opportunity to get to know Jesus. Many nonAdventist visitors expressed interest in attending and discovering more about the church and the Word of God.

Recognizing a need to reach out in the community and testify of God’s love, this event proved to be an important step in that direction. “We thank God for this opportunity and pray for future plans that will follow our vision and the spreading of the word of God in all our surroundings,” says Forest City Spanish Men’s Ministries Director Denny Rosendo.
