By Adrian Ales
Morobe Mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Churches launched the Evangelism initiative at the Sir Ignatius Kilage indoor stadium in Lae over the weekend on Saturday.
The Evangelism initiative launched is to help equip and prepare lay preachers, leaders and pastors for evangelism work. According to Morobe Missions (MM) Personal Ministry and Sabbath School (PMSS) director, Pastor Enosh Enopa, the initiative also introduces its new approach in Evangelism, the Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria 24/7 Ministry as post and pre-evangelism. Applying biblical commands of Jesus in Acts 1:8.
The Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria 24/7 Ministry concept is the evangelical approach the mission will now focus on. Simply starting with Families, from inside out. Evangelism at the immediate family member level (Jerusalem), evangelism at the extended family members level (Judea) and evangelism at public level (Samaria).
“With the initiative being launched, the local mission is now aiming to baptize 10 000 new members in addition to its existing 20 000 members in May 2020, from 200 evangelistic sites.” Said Pr. Enopa, “In addition, we will try our best to create 5000 small groups from the existing 300 Sabbath schools by June 2020, and to re-disciple church members to disciple new members as they come in.” he added.
Morobe Mission also for the first time had 130 active laity and missionaries attend its first ever School of Evangelism on the 7th to 12th of July, where Papua New Guinea Union Mission (PNGUM) President, Pastor Kepsie Elodo prayed over and charged them at the stadium. These 130 will be the ones to go out to prepare and organize the 200 evangelical sites for June 2020.
Seven new pastors also made a highlight at the launching on their ordination. All of which have been serving more than 5 years in the ministry.
