Dimapur, May 18 (EMN) : The 5th edition of a programme called “certificate course on social concern and leadership”, which is said to be organized by Prodigals’ Home annually, has concluded at the conference hall of the organisers.
“Our church ministry should expand, come out of their comfort zone and reach out to people who it never encounters in the church,” said Dr. James Kalong, associate professor of OTS in Dimapur. A press release from the organisers said he was the main speaker for the function. Dr. James Kalong opined that churches should come forward and sponsor this kind of social concern programs if they don’t have human resources at their disposal for such works. Highlighting from Romans 12:3-8, Kalong stressed that each individual are gifted in one way or the other and that serving God is not limited to Church Ministry; each person using their gift for the glory of God is God’s ministry, he said.
Also, Rev. Dr. N. Tzudir, senior pastor of the DABA, exhorted the participants challenging the trainees to ‘translate’ whatever they have learnt into action during the 15-day training.
Certificates and the course reports were highlighted to the trainees by Maong Jamir, assistant director of Prodigals’ Home. Rev. Tenga Seb, pastor of Dimapur Rengma Baptist Church, said the concluding prayers, the organisers stated.
The course is being conducted every year from May 1 to the 15th since 2013 for students from theological and secular fields of study; and youths and church leaders, the organisers stated. This year there were 25 trainees; 107 students and leaders have been trained through the course till date, the press release informed.
