Can these bones live?


Task force and Chapel Hill to feature Dr. Harding

Hear Kevass Harding answer that question by telling how the church he serves grew from 25 active members to more than 650 members. He will teach and preach Sept. 14-16 at OKC-Chapel Hill Church, 2717 W. Hefner Rd.

His appearance is sponsored by the evangelism task force of the Conference’s Discipleship Ministry Team and by Chapel Hill’s annual Rogers Lectures. All are welcome to attend the free events.

Dr. Harding is senior pastor at Dellrose UMC, Wichita, Kan., and author of "Can These Bones Live: Bringing New Life to a Dying Church."

Today Dellrose is reaching into its surrounding community, focusing on serving the least and the lost, and deepening discipleship for those who come to know Christ. Harding attributes the growth of the church to dynamic teaching, fellowship, praise, gifted and devoted laity, and meaningful worship.

  • On Sept. 14 at 7 p.m., Harding will be teaching and preaching in a revival-style service.
  • On Sept.15, he will preach at 8:30 and 11 a.m.
  • On Sept. 16, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Harding will teach on evangelism. Breakout sessions will follow, helping develop the agenda for a Conference-wide evangelism effort as Advent and Christmas approach. Lunch will be available for $5.

"Hear amazing preaching and stories of a church that has been revived from near the brink of closure," said Stephen Hale, an associate pastor at Chapel Hill.

"You will come away with a spirit of hope and the fire of the Holy Spirit to renew and grow your life, your ministry, and your church."
