Pastor Dennis Smith has written books, given seminars, and preached to thousands on the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Because of this emphasis on the Holy Spirit in his ministry Pastor Smith has titled his ministry Holy Spirit Ministries. The goal is to help God’s children better understand the ministry of the Holy Spirit in their lives and in the world. Every book written, every seminar presentation, and every sermon preached is aimed at leading the recipient to better understand and experience the baptism of the Holy Spirit in order to be ready for Christ’s soon return.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit and prayer are essential for every Christian who wants to be used in a powerful way for the Lord. Through the Holy Spirit Jesus lives in the believer to empower them to become just like Jesus, and to minister through them to others. Holy Spirit Ministries’ goal is to help this become a reality in the lives of God’s people. The book, "40 Days - Prayer and Devotions to Prepare for the Second Coming," was written with this goal in mind. Every devotional presents one aspect of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and leads the participant into a deeper relationship with Christ through prayer.
Besides developing a closer relationship with Christ the baptism of the Holy Spirit is given to empower one's witness for Christ. To give the Holy Spirit opportunity to do this the "40 Days" devotional encourages the participant to reach out to others through prayer and personal contact.
About Pastor Dennis Smith
Pastor Dennis Smith received a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from Colorado State University. While at Colorado State, he became a Seventh-day Adventist Christian. After working in engineering for a short time, he felt the call to fulltime ministry. Smith has served the church as an active layman, and in pastoral and departmental positions for over 41 years. He graduated from Andrews University Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity degree.
In 1999 the Lord led Dennis and his wife, Patty, to begin studying the biblical teaching on the baptism of the Holy Spirit. As a result of their study, they were convicted to specifically pray for this biblical experience. Soon after they prayed for God to grant this infilling experience of the Spirit, a new spiritual life began to take hold of them both. Almost immediately Dennis felt led to begin writing about the things he was learning and experiencing.
