Loper, Durkee and Cassady join list of IHC Moderators

April 3, 2014

The growing number of conventions across the United States has caused IHC to expand the number of “IHC Representatives” who are sent to conduct the services.  We are grateful for the help of Rodney Loper, Daniel Durkee and Stephen Cassady in conducting these conventions.  They join Leonard Sankey, James Plank, Paul Gray, Darrell Stetler and Paul Pierpoint in making sure that each convention has someone representing IHC on that platform.  The Area Conventions are the lifeline of IHC- providing a platform in many locations for holiness, revival and fellowship.  Our hope is to expand the list of states where an IHC is conducted- not for the cause of an organization, but for the “spreading of scriptural holiness across these lands.”




Advertise in the Convention Daily

April 2, 2014

Each day of the 2014 Convention we will publish a daily handout full of information and advertisments.  Your organization will benefit greatly from this advertisement.  For rates and availability, contact Rachel Bailey 618-315-7050.




From Alaska to South Carolina… Holiness Conventions

Holiness Conventions have been held all across the nation in the early months of 2014!  In each location, much the same could be said- good people, good hospitality and wonderful services.  God is so good and IHC is blessed with people everywhere who love the message and doctrine of holiness.  To all who make these services possible, we say a resounding THANK YOU!  We are also grateful to each speaker, singer and host pastor. 
-The Kansas State Winter Convention was held in January as the first of our Area Conventions for 2014.  General Secretary Leonard Sankey conducted the services and was joined by John Zechman in preaching.  Independence Bible School helped to provide some of the speical music.  Host Pastor Joe Davolt and people provided for every need of our workers.  The services were marked by the presence of the Lord!
-The South Carolina State Convention was held in January with Daniel Durkee conducting the services.  Stephen and Nicole Cassady joined him in ministry and in song.  The best of southern hospitality was exhibited by Host Pastor Goings and people.  Several churches were represented.
-The Indianapolis Area Convention was held in February, hosted by Union Bible College and President Adam Buckler.  James Plank conducted the services and was joined by Chester Handfield in preaching. The Mike Mayhle Family along with the Union Bible College Music Department provided special music.  Area churches hosted the evening services and gave generously to the expenses of the convention:  Anderson Grace Holiness, Beech Grove Independent Nazarene and Noblesville Pilgrim Holiness. 
-Leonard Sankey conducted the Central Ohio Convention in February, hosted at the Marion Allegheny Wesleyan Methodist Church.  He was joined by John Case in preaching.  John & Betty Case along with Allegheny Wesleyan College provided speical music.  The services were well attended and blessed of the Lord.  Special thanks to Host Pastor David Blowers.
-The West Michigan Convention was held at Cedar Springs with Host Pastor Michael Shiery.  Leonard Sankey conducted the services.  Nathan and Darla Shockley provided special music and he assisted with preaching.  God blessed the convention with His presence and all left encouraged in the Lord.
-Rodney Loper conducted the Oklahoma City Convention in March.  Host Pastor Mark Calderon and Cooridnator Darrell Stetler II were gracious hosts.  The convention is hosted by the Heartland Holiness Association.  Good crowds and offerings were appreciated.  Most of all, God’s presence made all the difference in these services.
-Leonard Sankey conducted the Sea-Tac convention in March with over nine congregations represented in the services at Wesleyan Holiness Church in Tacoma.  Brian Spangler assisted with preaching and he and his wife, Cheri, with speical music.  The convention was a blessing to all.
-James Plank preached the Alaska State Convention in March.  Host Pastor Dwane Newton and people are always a blessing to IHC.  The services were marked by a real sense of the Lord’s presence with several finding help around the altar.  At least three churches were represented in the convention.

Assistant Secretary James Plank in Papua New Guinea

January 20, 2013
Assistant Secretary James Plank ministered in Papua New Guinea, January 6-15, 2013.  Preaching at Lae, Port Moresby and at the National Holiness Camp in Pabarabuk.  He was accompanied by his daughter, Jennifer and the Dr. Tim Slavens Family, former medical missionaries to PNG.  Revival is on in Papua New Guinea.  Nightly, crowds of people filled the large tabernacle with 12-15,000 people present by the weekend.  A moving of God in the Saturday evening service resulted in thousands of seekers.  To God be the Glory!  A special thanks to those who supported this trip and prayed!  God answered prayer.  The Papua New Guinea Bible Church is now the largest Protestant group in the country.  Holiness is on the rise as over six hundred churches are making a difference in each community.  Pacific Bible College and Tambul Bible School are doing an excellent job of preparing young people for the harvest.  The leadership, pastors and laypeople are committed to the holiness way and have stood under immense pressure from even former missionaries who have departed from the faith.  On the very first night of the camp, those in opposition to the holiness way, cut tree’s down on the electric wires leading to the mission compound.  When the repairmen came the next day to fix the problem, they were paid money NOT to fix the lines.  Despite the opposition of the enemy, God is giving revival throughout the land.  Pray for a continued moving of His Spirit on the PNG Bible Church.
