Celebration of Sacred Work with Music, Message, and Fellowship

KH 50th Celebration at Kettering Seventh-Day Adventist Church, Mission WeekendThe 2014 Annual Mission Conference was a celebration of 50 years of compassionate, faith-based health care. Every year employees are invited to worship at a special concert and Sabbath service at Kettering Seventh-day Adventist Church. This year’s event focused on how worship serves as a conduit for healing.


Music from the Gaither Homecoming
Tim Parton, a self-taught piano player who began playing the piano at age 6, started Friday evening’s concert tickling the ivory with his Southern Gospel sound. Allison Speer followed with her melodious voice of Gaither music. Grammy and GMA Dove Award-winning recording artist, Guy Penrod, ended the concert with some of his most popular songs of Gaither worship music.Tim 1Allison 2

Message for the Soul

Bill Knot 1Employees and the community who attended the Sabbath service received a message from Bill Knott, editor and executive publisher of the Adventist Review and Adventist World magazines. Bill Knott shared insights regarding the power of worship in transforming lives. “Worship is a place where healing happens,” he said. “Jesus preached healing before hearing, restoration before remonstration, pity before preaching, and love before lessons.”

Mission for the World
Jarrod McNaughton, vice president of Missions and Development at Kettering Health Network, presented stories and images from the Kettering Health Network mission trip to Malawi, Africa, highlighting the work of several employees. They saw nearly 1,000 patients during their 10-day trip.
