Paul Places Membership!!
Paul – a high-powered consultant who is Indian and works from time to time in India – met Luke Speckman in Portland and baptized him while Kip and Elena were leading the Portland Church! Ironically, now that Luke is the Overseeing Evangelist of India, he invited Paul to the SAMC to join the new Movement! Another tremendous friend to Paul through the years has been Nick Bordieri. So after a very warm but direct conversation at dinner, Paul was really considering joining the new Movement! Upon leaving the SAMC, Paul returned to Portland. Then the Bordieris flew from LA to Portland to spend time and to study the Bible with the Reddys. After their visit, Paul went to the leader of the Portland Church of Christ and resigned as the Chairman of the Board of HOPEworldwide – Portland and expressed that he had found revival in God’s new Movement! (HOPEworldwide is the benevolent arm of what’s left of the ICOC.) Then because of his Biblical convictions, Paul revived his faith and zeal and placed membership with us in the Portland International Christian Church on Sunday, November 20th!
