15 lay members join Methodist Church ministry

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Update: 12:45PM Fourteen lay members of the Methodist Church have been accepted into the ministry of the church during yesterday's annual Methodist Church Conference in Suva.

Methodist Church secretary for communication and overseas mission Reverend James Bhagwan said the decision was made during the ministerial session where successful candidates were approved to become ministers on probation.

Mr Bhagwan said majority of the probationers would be sent to the Davuilevu Theological College for ministerial information, while those with prior theological training will be stationed in church appointment. They will be eligible for ordination in 2021.

Meanwhile, a Ministerial session, held earlier in the week, had accepted 15 ministers for ordination, following six years of probation spent between ministerial training and field work. Two of the 15 are women ministers. 

They will be ordained at 10am on Sunday at Centenary Church..
