Four departments of the South Pacific Division (SPD) joined with their respective New Zealand Pacific Union Conference (NZPUC) and Cook Island Mission leaders for a joint ministry event called Think Orange in the Cook Islands in August. 

Think Orange calls for a commitment to bring the home (red) and the Church (yellow) into a closer working relationship (orange) that enhances and enriches both home and church ministry to all age groups and both genders.

Women, Children, Family and Youth Ministry leaders presented plenary sessions and workshops to more than 85 leaders and church members. 

“Think Orange calls for a commitment to bring the home (red) and the Church (yellow) into a closer working relationship (orange) that enhances and enriches both home and church ministry to all age groups and both genders,” said SPD Family Ministries director, Pastor Trafford Fischer.

Erna Johnson, SPD Women’s Ministry director, said, “It was a wonderful opportunity for me to be able to make a presentation to the Church as a whole on how Women’s Ministries fits into the Church and family life as a whole.”  

NZPUC Family Ministries director, Pastor Victor Kulakov, said the training event was “an absolute success”. “Thanks to the SPD and Cook Island teams for their collaborative work.”
