I'm not much for denominations, but, this definitely sounds like great news. I was involved with the Assemblies of God for a few years early in my Christian walk. They definitely have a big world missions push in their denomination.
Sadly most church movements are dying slowly but it is wonderful to see some movements like the AoG still putting an emphasis on reaching the lost and planted new local churches.May we continue to pray for the revival of many denominations that they may again be useful in the Lord's hand as a whole.
