Pastor Tony Anobile launched his week of prayer series at PUC by reading from John 2:1-12. To make Christ more real to his audience, Anobile emphasized that as the wedding at Cana and water into wine miracle indicates, Jesus was a social person who drew pleasure from the company of others.
The title of Anobile’s series, “‘I AM’ All You Need,” focuses on all that Christ offers his believers. Touching on issues of faith and communication, and drawing on passages from the book of John, Anobile shares his experiences honestly and humorously.
Monday morning’s meeting is the first of eleven presentations that Anobile will give at PUC. The gatherings, which begin at 8:50 a.m. and 7 p.m. in the Church Sanctuary, will also include student participation in the form of music and drama.
Tony Anobile is senior pastor of the Eagle Rock Seventh-day Adventist Church in Los Angeles, California. He attended Montemorelos University and received his masters in religion from Loma Linda University. Anobile has worked in various ministry positions throughout Southern California since 1986, including several years as Director of Collegiate and Young Adult Ministries for the Southern California Conference.
The week-long event—the first at PUC this year—offers PUC students the opportunity to begin the school year on a positive spiritual note. Daily morning and evening meetings are concluded with a Sabbath service involving the entire community.
