Used Canvas Tents
In the fifties the work reached the states of Sao Paulo, Parana, Santa Catarina, Rio Grande do Sul, Espirito Santo, Rio de Janeiro and Mato Grosso. In the early sixties arrived at Goias year nineteen hundred and sixty-two, shortly after the National Convention, President and founder of IEQ asks his resignation to the office of International Missions. In Brazil, vice president Pastor Joaquim Pedro dos Santos takes over as interim president until the International Mission to appoint a new mission which must be received and approved at the Extraordinary National Convention. With the departure of the missionary Williams closes the first cycle of the history of IEQ. This time was marked by canvas tents being used as mobile churches. You could easily assemble and disassemble the used canvas tents and take them from one city to another and certainly mobility and curiosity that they woke contributed to the rapid expansion of the Work. The convention was scheduled for an extraordinary day April 10, 1962. She was held in the hall Rua Brigadeiro Galvao, in Barra Funda. Director of International Missions then appointed the missionary Rev. George Russell Faulkner, who took in April 1962 and remains in office until the day of IEQ March 30, 1988. From its founding until March 1987 the status of IEQ provided that the National Chairman should be appointed by the national Commission on their behalf and approved by the National Convention, he would always be a missionary sent by the church and its international role would last as long as the mission wanted to keep it here. Would be set aside only if it were their own volition, by retirement or the mission could withdraw it if there was a force majeure. In 1987 The National Board of Directors proposed a change of the season because of the statutory retirement of the Rev. Faulkner twenty-seven years presided over the IEQ. This statutory change the ministry of IEQ would elect a president, as we have elected the other members of CND. The International Missionary would hold the position of Supervisor and International continue to be appointed and sent by the Cabinet Mission International. The first election took place then the following year, in March 1988 and was elected Pastor Eduardo Zdrojewski of Curitiba, Parana, as president of IEQ. The Rev. George Faulkner was then appointed as International Advisor and remained in office for one year. On July 29, 1988 he flew to Los Angeles. With the departure of Rev. Faulkner closes the second cycle of history square in Brazil. The sixties, seventies and eighties were the years in which the Work grew most, if not already used tents, churches acquired their land and, like the SEAT, built their churches and evangelistic work began to make use of rented rooms, Booths and Fields of Blessing (styled themselves as cults in land outdoor). And while we're talking about this period of history would like to dispel a myth that over time has been spread in our country, that the PrWilliams never was in a pulpit of IEQ. Pastor Williams resigned the office of missions and when he returned to Brazil was unable to attend the Convention would receive the new President. Although this would shock some people who did not know the details we have is a situation purely legal, it was no longer part of that Convention, had resigned. The event is a legal and administrative work and is only for ministers, aspiring, owners and workers that are connected to the ministry. As the minutes and photos of the opening of the temple itself in the square of IEQ SEDE Olavo Bilac, 90, on April 16, 1968, Pastor Williams was a guest of honor and occupied that pulpit next to the senior pastor at the time, Rev . George Russell Faulkner, Secretary of International Missions, Rev. Liland Edwards, and all other pastors who were holders or auxiliaries of the church headquarters since its founding. He was also invited to participate in seminars sponsored by Foursquare Publishing House in 1994. He was invited by President Rev. Mario de Oliveira to attend the 1999 Convention and was present at both events. He was also invited to join the IEQ Fiftieth Anniversary in 2001, but for health reasons can not travel at that time. . . .
