Delegates Treated to Life Changing Workshops
Delegates at the ongoing Pastors Conference of the 2019 International Pastors and Partners Conference (IPPC) were today treated to series of life changing workshops aimed at helping their growth in the ministry.
The series of workshops were targeted at different groups with the Loveworld nation. Starting from members of the Deaconry and their spouses, Haven governors and senior staff members who met at the LCA upper gallery to the Regional Directors, Zonal Pastors to Ministry Directors, who met at the LCA Baptistery, the Workshops were aimed at addressing various challenges brethren experience with their categories.
At the session for Church Pastors, Coordinators, Campus Ministry Pastors and their spouses who met at the LCA ground floor, the first speaker, Pastor Vale Odu-Thomas who spoke on Foundation School and the Cell Ministry in Church Growth encouraged the Pastors to use the Foundation School and Cell Ministry platforms as outreach opportunities where the Cell system functions as a fully equipped missionary school where more leaders are trained and raised for kingdom expansion.
Pastor Emeka Eze, the Zonal Pastor of Christ Embassy Lagos Zone 2 gave the first topic more depth as he spoke on “Cultivating a New Soul Winning Culture and Raising new Leaders Among the Brethren”. He advised the Pastors to discontinue every tendency to pamper the brethren into a state of being perpetually followed up and not assigning responsibilities to them. He said the Pastor must address these issues through a change of mindset that should be targeted at soul winning and soul development, starting from the Pastor who must be fully involved in the process.
The workshops have really displayed the desire of the Ministry to achieve excellent results through the constant training and development of the brethren as a workforce in the kingdom, both as groups and individuals. The other Workshop groups that also addressed th different aspects of the development of the brethren totally demonstrated the objectives of the Ministry in winning, building and sending.
