To start the year with mission alignment, the Papua New Guinea Union Mission (PNGUM) launched its strategic plan for the quinquennium on December 1 at the Dame Rose Kekedo Convention Centre, PNG University of Technology.

Prime Minister James Marape was invited to virtually join the meeting where he launched the PNGUM Strategic Plan for 2022-2025.

Before launching the plan, Mr Marape challenged church members to own and relate to the plan.

“I am happy that the Church has a plan. This plan can be inter-generational and church members must embrace it,” he said.

Mr Marape said he was happy to see the Church’s plan for distance education, technical vocational education training and a hospital in or near Port Moresby. 

South Pacific Division president Pastor Glenn Townend encouraged everyone to make the strategic plan work.

“Don’t keep it on your desk or shelf. Keep it in your mind, soul and body. Make it happen for the glory of God,” Pastor Townend said.

Meanwhile, PNGUM president Pastor Malachi Yani appealed to all partners to own the plan.

“Take this plan as yours. You must own, grow and embrace it,” he said.

The new strategic plan will enable the Church to wholistically touch people’s lives, including church-goers, through its four arenas: mission, service, people and culture, and wholistic sustainable empowerment.
