THIS WEEKEND AT MADISON CAMPUS
During our church services in February, Madison Campus is celebrating Black History Month. Each Sabbath this month we will have a special focus on black perspectives on the Gospel during our church services and celebrate the accomplishments and contributions made by Seventh-day Adventists and other Christians of African descent.
This Sabbath, February 22, our speaker is Mark Terrell Denman who is currently an elder at the Madison Campus Seventh-Day Adventist church. His sermon is entitled “Outside The Box” and is based on John 13:34-35.
Mark is a native of Baton Rouge, LA and is the third of three children born to James and Joyce Denman (late). He is a graduate of Oakwood University where he studied Math and Computer Science before finally a BS degree Computer information systems. Mark gave his life to Christ at an early age at the Berean Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Baton Rouge and was re-baptized during week of prayer at Oakwood University where he felt the Holy Spirit impress upon his heart that “NOW WAS THE TIME.”
After a 15 year career in software development, he and his wife of 15 years, the former Sharron Richards, moved to Springhill, TN and within a year, sold their home again and moved to Turners Falls, MA where Mark attended the Hallmark Institute of Photography. While there, they were blessed with the birth of their only child Rachel Joyce-Linn. He graduated in the top 10% of his class receiving the prestigious president’s award. He now serves the Middle Tennessee area as a Corporate/Commercial photographer.
It was on a mission trip to Guatemala where Mark challenged God to use him in a different way. “Lord if you want me to speak for you, I will. However, I will not pursue it. You have to bring the opportunity to me.” Within a month, he was speaking at Ridgetop SDA church in Springfield , TN. His very first sermon was titled “In a pit with a lion on a snowy day”. He has since spoken and sang at several area churches and graduation ceremonies as well as share his voice-over talents on many audio projects within the church and with local recording artists. His greatest earthly joy is his family, but his greatest desire is see his entire church family in heaven.
Our musical guests this Sabbath are the Andrews Academy Concert Band. Andrews Academy has always supported a concert band, though it has grown quite a bit over the years. Today the band has around 60 members and practices four days a week. Several years ago, they won First Division in the distinguished Msboa District 6 Band & Orchestra Festival. They've taken several trips to perform in Washington, D.C., as well as tours to Pennslyvania, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
