The ‘2022 ASI International Convention' will soon be hosted in Orlando, Florida, scheduled from Wednesday, Aug. 3, to Saturday, Aug. 6. With the theme 'Revived to Witness: United, Transformed, Sent,' the organization aims to help individuals be equipped with new knowledge on ministries, expanding network, and many more. 

Why Join ‘2022 ASI International Convention'?

Registration for the ‘2022 ASI International Convention' is now open for all individuals or groups who want to know more about expanding the church ministry, new tools in the church, etc. Philip Baptiste, secretary and treasurer of ASI Ministeries, said on one of its Facebook posts that there are four reasons why anyone should join the 2022 convention: 

  • Workshops and seminars about ministry, network expansion, and strategies in the church.
  • Children's programs will be available during the four-day seminar, reportedly offering fun ways for kids to learn more about God.
  • Network and talk with professionals and ministers at the event that will hone participants' knowledge about their chosen profession. 
  • Convention will have 'delicious food' and 'spiritual food' for all attendees at the event. 

As per its website, the ASI mainly targets attendees to connect with other people at the event that share the same interests and professions with them, whether in the church ministry or business aspect. Member or non-ASI member is reportedly welcome to join the event by registering on its website. 

There are two types of registration for the event, whether someone is an attendee or an exhibitor. One of the exhibitors joining the August event is the SALT Outreach Inc. organization, based in Orlando, Florida. 

Based on its Facebook page, the organization is reportedly excited to be part of this year's ASI convention. Its website said that SALT Outreach Inc. offers numerous programs to homeless people in need around Orlando. 

Some programs they conduct are Orlando Mobile Day Services, Sanford Mobile Day Services, Street Outreach Center, Permanent Supportive Housing, and the establishment of SALT Outpost Centers. 

As explained by the group, the programs above aim to help homeless people within Orlando. It said that they did surveys and focus groups just to know the 'exact needs' of all the affected people in the area.
