Leadership Conference 2021
Twenty-five men and women from across Mindanao and Metro Manilla attended the 2021 Leadership Training Conference, which was held November 18-20 in Valencia City, Central Mindanao.
The theme of this three-day event was “Working Together in the Same Mind and Judgment” taken from 1 Corinthians 1:10. Regional Director, Mr Robert Tyler, gave an excellent lecture on Church government, while other lectures discussed the importance of developing leadership and working together to achieve the Sevenfold Commission of the Church. The Training Conference also included a songleading workshop, a Q&A session, and a Friday evening Bible Study.
Sabbath service was livestreamed to most of our local congregations which gave some of our men the opportunity to speak online for the first time. The men also participated in a Spokesman Club meeting in the evening, and enjoyed further opportunities to develop their leadership and speaking skills.
This centralized leadership training event was the first after a long hiatus. The Training Conference aims to help our men develop a unified approach in doing the Work of God, and gives the men an opportunity to build ties and connect with the ministry from all regions of the country.
There clearly is a great need to keep this program going. We are already looking forward to conducting another one, God-willing, in February 2022. We would appreciate your continued prayers and support for God to open even more opportunities to help effectively feed the flock, and preach the good news of God’s Kingdom, not only in the Philippines, but around the world. – Joseph Gonzales
