We strive for our churches and ministers to reflect the racial and ethnic diversity of our society and for our leadership to reflect the diversity of our churches. To this end, we desire to increase awareness and sensitivity regarding matters of race and culture and to create a welcoming environment.
Recently, the UPCI surveyed senior pastors in Canada and the US. The survey was distributed via email and promoted at General Conference. We received responses from almost a thousand pastors, or about 23 percent of all senior pastors, with at least one response from all 57 districts. Here are some initial findings:
We are thankful for an amazing General Conference with outstanding preaching, teaching, praise, and prayer. After last year’s conference was moved online due to the pandemic, people were eager to come together for worship and fellowship. Particularly noteworthy was the powerful move of God at the conclusion of each service.
Paul R. Price passed from this life on Saturday, August 21, 2021. He was the founding pastor of New Life Tabernacle in Napa, California, and he served as superintendent of the UPCI’s Western District for thirty-four years.
We are saddened to announce the passing of Raul Orozco, the bishop of La Senda Antigua in southern California and the general director of the UPCI’s Spanish Evangelism Ministries. Brother Orozco was a member of the UPCI’s General Board and the pastor of our largest church and daughter work network in North America.
We recently concluded our 75th Anniversary General Conference. Due to the pandemic, the entire conference, including services and seminars, was broadcast on Facebook, YouTube, and the UPCI website. Viewership numbers were strong, with a peak live audience of nearly 7,000 devices tuned to the broadcast and peak service unique viewers of over 114,000.
