Two short videos launched by the South Pacific Division’s Discipleship Ministries Team (DMT) show how disciple-making is reaping results in Fiji and Papua New Guinea.
The Fiji video tells the story of how church members are building close relationships with their neighbours and friends, helping them to know Jesus and planting new churches where they live.
The PNG video shows how members in the Central Papua Conference are inviting their friends, families and colleagues to meet together in Discovery Bible Reading groups. The impact has been extraordinary, with multiple baptisms each week, leading to the Conference’s largest ever number of quarterly baptisms.
DMT leader Pastor Leigh Rice said it is very exciting to see these results.
“Many of these people are discovering the life and teachings of Jesus for the first time,” he said. “It is wonderful to see their enthusiasm.
“I would encourage our members across the SPD to take a look at these inspiring videos and see how these disciple-making methods, which are simple and reproducible, are bringing communities to know Jesus.”
SPD president Glenn Townend said: “It is great to see people in the Pacific unions catching the vision of becoming a disciple-making movement and putting it into practice.
“I know there are people in the other unions doing very similar activities with the same results. I thank God for this. The movement momentum is building.”
