Ministers Convene on Church Mission

March 29, 2013


During the quarterly all-state EAPCA ministers' convene, several points were discussed in regards to the strategy in doing church mission. All ministers had productive time of sharing prayer topics, reports, and Q&A's sessions. 
"Churches need to have capacity to contain diverse people groups," said a presider of the meeting. Apostle James said, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." Ministers should reach out to the poor who seek to receive the Gospel and God's mercy, washing off their sins and sorrows by the blood of Jesus. 
A spokesperson from New York region emphasized that instead of focusing on one specialized fields, ministers should embrace and develop diversified church programs for all types of people--Teens Mission reaching out to students in High school and Junior High was mentioned as a case study. 
"All ministers should live out the qualitative time," said the presider. "The qualitative change, 'Kairos' in Greek terminology, must occur in all churches. With focused prayer and asking for the power of the Holy Spirit, God will make changes in people's lives, in the cities and communities around us." 
When churches lead their members, planting them the dreams and hopes for God's kingdom, churches can truly expand and everyone can grow. 
It was also discussed in the area of discipleship that Church ministers should let church members recognize the true meaning of freedom in Christ, realize their callings from God, and encourage them to boast the power of Gospel in every field they are in. Churches should be able to instill the creative and lively atmosphere in their respective congregations.
