Speaker

Dwight K. Nelson

Since 1983, Dwight Nelson has served as lead pastor of the Pioneer Memorial Church on the campus of Andrews University. He preaches on the “New Perceptions” telecast, teaches at the theological seminary and has written some books, including The Chosen. He and his wife, Karen, are blessed with two married children and one granddaughter.

When someone is called to a prophetic office, we can sometimes learn as much from what they personally experience as from what they overtly teach. Which is why some very profound lessons on how to survive, even thrive, at times of intense suffering are revealed in discovering how she related to hers.

More In This Series

08/28/2010
Two divine gifts sustained our Lord for 40 days on His way to that moment in sacred history that became the center of all time and eternity. What would happen if you and I dedicated 40 days centered on these two sustaining gifts?
09/04/2010
Seven chapters of salvation history, seven divine secrets until God himself “spilled the secret” through His chosen confidants. Should the world have expected any less at the end? Consider the revelation and full implications of a miner prophet’s major message.
09/11/2010
Seven stages in the life-cycle of a prophet, some of them so human as to question the his/her divine calling, some of them so disturbing that only a fool would desire such a calling.
10/02/2010
It happened long ago when a wedding party and a funeral train passed each other at a crossing that would never be forgotten. Could it be that two modern anniversaries have coincided with a result that will always be remembered?
10/23/2010
The amalgamation of two clashing world views of origins has given birth to a third which appeals to many modern minds, but must forget three biblical revelations to survive.
10/30/2010
“By their fruits you will know them,” He warned. Which makes all the more significant the three great passions of this particular prophetic gift, and the global fruits it has borne.
11/06/2010
Our third millennial skepticism to any claim that God called someone to the role of a modern prophet echoes Jesus’ own warning against false prophets. And yet, the Bible predicts a prophetic ministry in the end time. So, how’s a person to tell the true from the false?
11/13/2010
Plagiarist and usurper of Bible authority, or true messenger of God?

Update Regarding Pastor Dwight K. Nelson

On Sunday, December 2, 2018 Dwight K. Nelson, Lead Pastor at Pioneer Memorial Church, took the pastoral team and their families on a Christmas excursion. Following a delightful meal, they headed to a nearby ice skating rink. The team is thankful for the time together!

Seasons cheer was in the crisp, cool air as the pastor's kids and the rest of the team circled around the rink. A few huddled on the sidelines while laughing, taking pictures, and waving through the merry gang of PMC skaters. Almost an hour after getting on the ice, Pastor Nelson incurred an injury to his right hip and right shoulder. Everyone is thankful that he did not hit his head on the ice.

The staff from the arena responded professionally, assessing the situation and calling for the paramedics. They even responded warmly to the suggestion from one of the other pastors. That suggestion was that along with the paramedics, they include a local marching band to escort him to a local hospital where he would get x-rays taken. (unfortunately, they were not available). On arriving at the hospital, they were received and attended with great care. Thank you to all who work in medical services for the professionalism and attentiveness you offer your patients.

As of December 3, Pastor Dwight went through his first successful surgery for his hip, and on December 5 he is scheduled to go into surgery again to attend to his shoulder. During this season we are reminded of many things, but today we are thankful that even through the disruptions this life brings God is watching over us. He is the Lead Physician and the Loving Shepherd.

We welcome your prayers and cards. We have set up a CaringBridge site (www.caringbridge.org/visit/dwightnelson) to read updates as they are made available and for you to leave your words of encouragement (we are not setting up a donation portal through CaringBridge). At the present time, we are asking for no-one to visit so that Pastor Dwight can have the necessary rest and recovery important in these early days post surgery. If you have care packages or cards, please feel free to deliver them to the church office. The pastoral staff will ensure they are delivered.
