CREATIVE MINDS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN KNOWN TO SURVIVE ANY KIND OF BAD TRAINING – Anna Freud
Our training is basic but in the hands of seasoned pastors and ministry workers it becomes a tool to save a soul.
YOU CANNOT TEACH A MAN ANYTHING, YOU CAN ONLY HELP HIM FIND IT WITHIN HIMSELF – Author unknown
These training has helped me to understand that a human being created by God is loaded with potential, all it needs is a motivational and a purposeful touch at certain areas at certain times to become what is was made for.
The purpose of our basic computing training is to equip the saints for the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God – a mature person, attaining to the measure of Christ’s full stature. So we are no longer to be children, tossed back and forth by waves and carried about by every wind of teaching by the trickery of people who craftily carry out their deceitful schemes. But practicing the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Christ, who is the head. From him the whole body grows, fitted and held together through every supporting ligament. As each one does its part, the body grows in love.
EPHESIANS 4:12 – 16
We want to be seen as making an impact on the questions and challenges that Apostle Paul highlights in Romans 10: 13 – 15. “For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How are they to call on one they have not believed in? And how are they to believe in one they have not heard of? And how are they to hear without someone preaching to them? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How timely is the arrival of those who proclaim the good news.”
We thank the Lord for our participants who are seasoned preachers and so our goal is to assist the Church to deliver what they know in a different format.
Pastor Alice Luma developed her Power Point Presentation during class time on Thursday (7th July 2016) and in the evening used the printed out A4 sheets to preach at her “House Fellowship” time with other women in her cell group.
She was really excited as she shared about her evening experience; her audience were “captured by the pictures” on the paper and as she shared from the Scriptures they fully understood that God really loved each one of them.
Just like in other training we have experienced, the participants in their creativeness use their own initiative to start using what they pick up in class as soon as an opportunity comes. We continue to be blessed with Power Point Presentations during devotion times and appreciation speeches during graduation time.
Here are some of the samples from different participants from different courses.
The participants are full of joy and excitement because they have learned the skill of inserting Church logos and developing letterheads for their denominations. They are all smiles when they hold a printed copy; the work of their fingers!
On a higher level some have developed teaching resources on various themes or topics. One participant went ahead and developed a presentation to introduce each participant as they came forward to receive their certificates.
We again thank the Lord for the prayers and support of everyone involved to point the saints to the work they have been called for. As trainers and facilitators we continue to be blessed as we see pastors who have never used a computer in their life to produce professional material with a goal to win souls for Christ.
We have have experienced the success of these training because of the the grace of God and the perpetual guidance and help of the Holy Spirit, he is always our strength when we are in need.
