Lilongwe North West district of the Seventh day Adventist church is running a one week intensive course in evangelism at Area 25 SDA Church.
According to Pastor Medson Mazengera, the district Pastor, the course which started yesterday the 4th of June 2017, has been organised in order to equip more lay preachers with advanced public evangelism skills that will enable them spread the
gospel everywhere thereby hastening the coming of the Lord, Jesus Christ. ''The training will empower more lay evangelists to spread the gospel. We need more workers. Most people rely on the Pastor and a few individuals to preach. This training will remove any fears for evangelism. It will motivate people to evangelise. We want to instill confidence and evangelistic spirit among the trainees. Soon after the training , the trainees will be sent out to conduct crusades in various areas''. He said.
Pastor Mazengera said some of the topics that will be taught during the training will include sermon preparation, health evangelism, voice development and speech delivery, spiritual reformation for preachers and principles of witnessing. Trainees will also have time for practical presentations.
Several facilitators have been lined up for the course. They include Pastor Dr. Ernest Khonje, Pastor Davie Kanjadza, Pastor Dr.Joe Gumbala and Dr. Nelson Msiska and the host, Pastor Medson Mazengera.
All the trainees will be given a training kit with well researched topics. The course which
will be conducted in the evenings,from 5:30PM to 6:30PM is targetting eighty trainees from the district and other areas.
