Evangelists reach out

A TWO-DAY training program for volunteer evangelists of the Methodist Church was held this week at the Centenary Church in Suva.

According to the church's secretary for evangelism, Reverend Samuela Koroi, the program provides volunteers capacity-building in key evangelism and outreach techniques.

"As we prepare to mark our 50th anniversary of being an independent conference, the departments of evangelism and Methodist Men's Fellowship are working together to prepare a revival and reconciliation program for the 56 divisions of the church." said Mr Koroi.

Part of the program is a home visitation scheme, and the hope is to touch every member, whether active or lapsed.

Mr Koroi said "focusing on the theme of jubilee, the outreach program focuses on freedom from sin (moral and personal), freedom from violence (domestic/social/structural) and freedom from debt".

The 56 divisions will hold their own jubilee celebrations between April 28 and May 4, the first week of the school holidays.

These celebrations will include annual divisional meetings, reconciliation and revival services and reflection on the past and future of each division.

The theme of the Jubilee celebrations is na lako yani vou — The New Exodus.

The Western and Northern divisions will also hold training programs in the coming months.
