In the early evening of April 24, Mission Manager Immanuel (3rd from left in front row, click the photo for a larger view) joined approximately 200 family and friends of 19 students who successfully completed the second 2 year DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING COURSE, for a Convocation at the Advent Christian Conference’s compound at Velachery, Chennai, to witness the graduates receive their certificates.
The course, which is funded by the Mission, is for lay men and women from the churches of the Advent Christian Conference of India and the Fellowship of Blessed Hope Churches, and consists of 32 weekly studies during each of two years. The lectures are taught by 32 different Pastors from both conferences and cover a wide range of Biblical and theological subjects, and are designed to give lay people a broad overview and understanding of Scripture and practical matters involved in serving their Lord.
Please pray for this year’s 19 graduates, and the 30 who graduated from the 1st course two years ago, seeking wisdom for them as they seek to use what they have learned to assist with the ministries of their churches and Conferences. Please also thank the Lord for those who have organised the course and those who have given their time to teach.
