All Pastors of PCC Resolve to Work in Unity

For the first time in the History of the PCC, the Moderator, the Rt Rev Dr Festus Asana convened an all pastors’ conference bringing together the more than 400 pastors of the PCC to deliberate on “ the blessedness of unity,” as a major theme to foster unity amongst them.

The two day conference took place 18- 19 September 2012 and was hosted by PCC Ntamulung. Prior to the official opening was a meditation delivered by the Rev Perpetua Fonki . Drawing inspiration from Eph 4: 1- 6 on the theme, “walking together in unity,” she noted that the notion of unity is not undermining the different spiritual gifts but in the diverse strengths and weaknesses,  all pastors should work together towards the unified goal of the Church. The strength of unity she said, is in one accord, one baptism, one ordination and one fellowship thus working together as a team without each pursuing personal gains. The Rev Dr Perpetua Fonki reminded the clergymen that they are sitting at the steering wheels of the Church towards success.

In his official opening remarks the Moderator was overwhelmed with the growing number of pastors in the PCC and also thanked God for making it possible for the conference to hold after some years now. In his words he said that the PCC supports all efforts at promoting unity, integrity, transparency and accountability.  Any attempt to prevent such practices, undermines the effective management of Church affairs and Church property.

After declaring the conference open, the Moderator has a brief press conference where he reiterated the need for all pastors to live in unity. He was pleased to remark that the Church is waxing strong because according to him its source is solar- scriptura.

For the two days, the men of God of the PCC, embraced elaborate lectures and discussions on, the blessedness of unity, pastoral ethics, preparing for retirement, spiritual reflection and the way forward for pastor’s unity.

It was facilitated amongst others by, the Rev Prof Anyambod Emmanuel , the Rev Dr Joe Set Aji-Mvo, the Rev Dr Jonas Dah, the Rev Aboseh Ngwana, the Heads of departments of Education, Health and Finances in the PCC.

The pastors went home more fortified and with the zeal to make the Church much better. It was opportunity for pastors to meet and share fellowship some meeting after several years.

The last conference of the Pastors took place in 2004 but in two centres North West  and South West and remarkably this is the first time all the pastors have been able to converge one one spot for the conference.
