NEWS: DayStar Opens Training Institute

SERVE Evangelism Training Institute
By Jason Churchwell & Alexa Hernandez

“And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”
Psalms 1:3

Located in the high desert of Castle Valley, Utah, nestled at the base of the La Sal Mountains and fed with underground water cisterns from these mountains, DayStar Adventist Academy is truly an oasis, in a dry and thirsty land.   Surrounding DayStar’s campus are rich fields of alfalfa, green grass, winter wheat, and multiple greenhouses all growing and thriving amidst the hot dry towering red mesas on either side.  As my eyes daily take in the beauty of this campus, I am constantly reminded of the deep spiritual lessons that all of this symbolizes.

In Ellen White’s “Education” pg. 116 we’re told, “The tree of the desert is a symbol of what God means the life of His children in this world to be. They are to guide weary souls, full of unrest, and ready to perish in the desert of sin, to the living water. They are to point their fellow men to Him who gives the invitation, ‘If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink’ John 7:37.”

DayStar’s newest program SERVE endeavors to answer this call.  SERVE Evangelism Training Institute is a 16-week course designed to train complete soul-winners, whether overseas or within your own community.  SERVE is unlike any other evangelism institute in that it combines instruction in evangelism with training in medical missionary work and practical trades.  Just as Adam and Eve worked in the garden, Jesus toiled at the carpenter’s bench, and Paul labored as a tent maker. We believe training in the practical skills of life is of vital importance.  At SERVE you will learn how to till the soil, grow your own food, the basics of construction and mechanics, as well as natural remedies and healthful cooking, all tools to be used as an opening wedge to minister to thirsting souls.

One of the most exciting parts of SERVE’s training is the opportunity to put your new skills into practice.  The course will include a mission trip within the United States as well as an optional, one-month overseas mission trip, during which students will be mentored by experienced missionaries in the field.  These trips along with going door-to-door, health expos, and cooking and farming demonstrations will teach you how to be a complete soul winner.
In the gospel commission, Jesus in Mark 16:15 commanded His disciples to go into all the world and preach the gospel. This commission was not for the disciples alone, but for all who would profess belief in Christ until the end of time. Therefore, as followers of Christ, we shouldn’t ask ourselves if we should serve as missionaries, but the question should be where?  At SERVE you will be trained to follow Christ’s method of evangelism by learning practical skills to meet people’s physical and spiritual needs.  Evangelism will be taught for half the day with the other half devoted to outreach and missionary training.
You are invited to join us in becoming an effective soul winner wherever God calls you.

“One worker who has been trained and educated for the work, who is controlled by the Spirit of Christ, will accomplish far more than ten laborers who go out deficient in knowledge, and weak in the faith.”
“Evangelism” pg. 109
