Holy Ghost Crusades Seek to Bridge Denomination Gap
Pohl, Laura Zahn, Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)
Christians of any denomination are invited to attend one of four Holy Ghost Crusades sponsored by Calvary United Pentecostal Church in Addison.
The services will be led by Shelly Hendricks of Visalia, Calif., president of Harvest Ministries.
"The purpose behind the crusades is to invite people of all denominations and help churches add new people to their congregations through evangelism," said Hendricks, who is affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church International.
Through Harvest Ministries, Hendricks has conducted crusades all across the United States, as well as in Africa and the Philippines.
People who come to the crusades have often previewed videos produced by Hendricks about the Holy Spirit and baptism. His ministry helps people understand the gift of the Holy Spirit that's promised in biblical scriptures.
"They learn that the prophecy of the Holy Spirit is available to them, and they come to the crusades with knowledge and understanding so that their lives are changed," Hendricks said.
Others prepare for a crusade through home Bible study, he said. …
