Go forth, share and save

THE Methodist Church in Fiji should go back to its strong missionary work so people get the message of God right at their doorsteps, says newly-elected deputy general secretary Reverend Ili Vunisuwai.

Mr Vunisuwai said the church needed to be mission-oriented so more souls could be saved.

He said the church would surely come to live through mission work especially by sending missionaries into the field to spread and share the word of God.

Methodist Church secretary for communication and overseas mission Reverend James Bhagwan said seven single and seven married lay members had been accepted into the ministry for 2015.

Mr Bhagwan said on Tuesday, the ministerial session of the Methodist Church annual conference interviewed the candidates who were then approved to become ministers on probation.

He said majority of those probationers would be sent to the Davuilevu Theological College for ministerial formation, while those with prior theological training would be stationed in church appointments and would be eligible for ordination in 2021.

The ministerial session of the church earlier in the week accepted 15 ministers for ordination, following six years of probation spent between ministerial training and field work.

Two of the 15 are women ministers.
