Retired Texas Conference ..., 15 May 2011 [cached]
Retired Texas Conference president Steve Gifford had been selected to speak on behalf of the alumni association. He was to be allotted 10 minutes for his speech; he and others had also prepared documents to support his case. The documents were confiscated at the door by conference personnel. And when it was time for Gifford to talk, the chair Max Trevino (Southwestern Union Conference President) put it to the vote of the constituents as to whether Gifford, a non-delegate, would be allowed to speak.

This marked a turning point in what had been a decorous meeting to that point when, after remarks about Gifford were made from the platform, the constituents voted down giving him the microphone. Suzanna Facundo, the immediate past president of the Valley Grande Alumni Association was drafted to read from Gifford's prepared remarks.
Gifford and the alumni association representatives were displeased by the way that the meeting was going and the remarks that had been made.

With reference to this vibrancy and enthusiastic congregational participation, Southeastern California Conference president Steve Gifford describes it as "a Black church with White people attending" . .
[Key points that make these services different than regular Adventist worship services are then listed:] Use fresh, contemporary, relevant music. [The old-time hymns are no longer relevant.] Invest in musical instruments and sound equipment to achieve quality in worship. [A "quality" equal to that of a dance band.] Emphasize preparation; spend time rehearsing [skits, band, and solos] and setting up [staging, band equipment, etc.]. Allow worship to flow and build in intimacy by singing a number of songs in a well-planned succession.Encourage the individual to worship as a whole person, with body, mind, and spirit.This is expressed by raising hands, standing, kneeling, singing, clapping, reciting Scripture, praying, etc. Feel free to worship in any setting. [Later, in the description of Snyder's Milwaukie Church, the same points are listed.]
Celebration Center makes effective use of drama to enhance the worship experience.
