Revival weekend

by ABI Admissions (11/5/2014)

What an incredible weekend we had! After revival services on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, we came back Sunday morning with our expectations high. We were set to baptize 14 people. The number of people that wanted to be baptized had grown through out the week. We came together Sunday morning and worshiped and rejoiced as 12 people were buried in the precious Name of Jesus. We had planned to baptize two more after the sermon from Rev. Aaron Wright, bringing the total to 14. During the worship service, we had yet another person come forward and ask to be baptized.

Rev. Wright preached a powerful message about not just living under the Master's table where the crumbs are, but getting ourselves to sit down at the Masters table to get all that He has for us. As Rev. Wright preached, the power of God was moving through the congregation, especially among those that had just been baptized. We gathered in the altar to seek the face of God, and as we worshiped, 3 people were filled with the Holy Ghost.

Rev. Wright had been witnessing to a man with whom he had worked when he attended ABI. After he preached, he was able to baptize that man in the only saving Name of Jesus. Rev. Andrew Reece baptized one more young lady who had received the Holy Ghost Friday night, bringing the whole service to a wonderful crescendo of worship and celebration of what God had done in the lives of 15 people that morning.

Sunday evening we came back and Rev. Wright preached an incredible message which related to us that we have entered into a season of harvest. If we will go into the field, 15 baptisms on a Sunday morning will become a normal event. As we sought the face of God around the altar, a young man came down to speak with our pastor, Rev. Grant, and asked to be baptized. A few minutes later when he came up out of the water, he began to speak in a language which he had never spoken before as God filled him with the Holy Ghost.

We baptized 16 people in the name of Jesus and God filled five with His wonderful Spirit. We are so thankful for the incredible move of God and the sensitivity and service of Rev. Aaron Wright in our revival services!

College Days 2014 Chapel and Class

by ABI Admissions (10/29/2014)

As the final bells were ringing for our school day to begin, Rev. William Chapman, an adjunct faculty member at ABI, brought all of our guests to the upperclassman classroom and led them in a joyful rendition of "Rise and Shine". Rev. Chapman taught the first hour about ministerial principles and taking up the burden of the ministry that you've been called to. Second hour, we heard Rev. Sidney Poe, from The Pentecostals of Alexandria, LA , teach about our different personalities and how they are divinely aligned to our ministries. We then headed to our daily, student-led, chapel service in which our student body president would be preaching. Bro. Justin Bishop spoke a beautiful and stirring message of taking His yoke upon us and attaching ourselves to a burden. He closed his message by connecting taking up our yoke to Jesus taking up the cross. He spoke passionately and used compelling visuals. The memory of that old yoke, cross and an empty chair will forever be imprinted in our minds. We had a beautiful move of God as many young people shed things of the world and committed to taking that burden of the call upon their own lives. After our chapel service, Rev. Andrew Reece taught our third hour class on Bible geography. He described and mapped the journey of Abram from Ur to the Promised Land, highlighting how obedience to the direction of God was essential.

From the first hour to the last there was a call for all of us to enter into ministry in whatever way we can. Ministering to someone does not require a pulpit; it does not even require a Bible study chart, though both are great tools. Ministering to someone requires that we answer the call of God on our lives and not allow our lack of skill, our fears about who we are, or our location to deter us from what God has called us to do.

College Days 2014

by ABI Admissions (10/24/2014)

The theme for our preview weekend this year is simply , "I am the difference". This theme will flow in and out of each message and lesson. This generation needs difference makers. We know that Jesus and the truth of His Gospel will make a difference, but we must put the knowledge into action and follow the hand of God. Only then will we be able to say "I am the difference".

As our guests registered, expectation and excitement was high. The ABI student body has been praying fervently for the lives that would be impacted this weekend. Bro. Aaron Wright preached an incredible message about blending in with Babylon. Stressing that we have been called out to be separate, he pointed to the story of Daniel purposing in his heart not to defile himself. There was a beautiful spirit during the entire service. We were interrupted as God swept in and gently touched each heart in the middle of Bro. Wright's sermon. Speaking with authority and an apostolic boldness we were instructed to push back the worldly influences trying to infiltrate our holy lifestyle. We were warned of the effects of feeding our spirits things that were acceptable in the world's eyes. Bro. Wright challenged us to lift our eyes and hearts higher and question how almighty God feels about our choices of entertainment. As the service came to a close, a call was given to wage a spiritual war on the things attacking our apostolic women. Every person in the place lifted their God-given voices as we pushed back the darkness attacking our generation. There was liberty and power in the building that no tongue could properly describe. Certainly, we had heard a life-changing message and encountered a life-changing God in a very real way.

Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Aaron was brought up with a Pentecostal heritage by his mother and father, Mike and Cassandra Wright. While attending Hughesville High School, Aaron felt the call of God to preach the Gospel. Standing at the crossroads, the choice was to pursue a football scholarship or go to the Apostolic Bible Institute. At the District Four All-Star game, Aaron remembers walking off the football field for the last time, hearing God speaking to him. "l want you to give your life to Me". It was then he decided to go to the Apostolic Bible Institute and pursue the call of God.

After his first year; he married Jessica Wright, his high school sweetheart. Aaron and Jes returned to school, where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in Theology and Jes graduated with an Associate's degree in Theology and Music.

After graduating college, Aaron and Jes moved back to Williamsport, Pennsylvania where they serve their pastor, Roger Betterley. Utilizing their college experience, they have served locally as Sunday school teachers, outreach coordinators, New Life course instructors, Bible study teachers, and worship leaders. Aaron was elected as the Section 2 youth representative, and is currently serving in that capacity.

Aaron's life has shown that the call of God isn't always easy, but it is rewarding. Through his experience, he has leamed that If you put in your time in, God will honor you and use you. Aaron has had the opportunity to serve for 8 years on a local and district level. He also has had the privilege of travelling to minister for youth revival, youth conventions, sectional youth rallies, Youth Day at church camp, and also church revivals.
