THE Methodist Church in Fiji's newly-elected general secretary Reverend Dr Epineri Vakadewavosa hopes to enhance the church education system particularly the Pacific Theological College.
Dr Vakadewavosa said apart from the connexional plan, the constitution review and the new exodus, he will prioritise the enhancement of education in the church particularly in getting ministers to be well educated so they can lead the flock in the right direction.
"I am very grateful to take up the appointment of general secretary for the church," Dr Vakadewavosa said.
"We want to improve our theological education and we have resolved that by 2016 we will start with a masters degree at the college.
"We want our ministers to be well educated so that they can lead the flock in the right direction in this new journey."
He said in the next 50 years the church would place emphasis on the faith and spirituality of its members and also reconciliation.
"The connexional plan for the church that we are working on now will be finalised next year which will be confirmed in the next annual conference," he said.
"Our constitutional review will be tabled sometime in the week, will be drafted and then confirmed in the next conference too.
"Those are a few important things that the church will prioritise and we will move on from there.
"We resolved yesterday (Tuesday) the issue about the Methodist education joint board that is part of my dream for the church."
He said the Methodist Education Board was a committee that comprised some elite educators in the country.
