THE New Methodist Church Christian Fellowship group held a prayer walk and medical checks yesterday to promote healthy living at their leadership workshop.

About 200 participants from the two-day workshop took part in the walk early yesterday.

"We need to maintain a healthy living as we age," said pastor Osea Rasea.

"While we develop our spiritual life, we need also to balance that with our physical life."

Mr Rasea said the leadership workshop, which was attended by participants from the Central and Eastern divisions, was to equip and encourage church leaders to continue the work of the church.

"Leaders are there to serve and we need to continue equipping them. The best way to do that is through the Word of God."

Yesterday, the workshop covered topics such as overcoming rumours and controversies, passion and changing people's minds.

"Leaders shouldn't deviate from the calling of God in their lives. The world is looking for answers and they are looking to leaders for answers.

"Church leaders especially need to set the example and better equip themselves so they can better serve the people."

The church also plans to hold leadership workshops in other divisions.
