Moved by the need to ensure all mountains in the way of spreading the gospel all over the world are removed and to assist, equipped and prepare gospel ministers for greater exploits, Newlife Gospel Ministers Network, International has commenced the process of bringing its vision of making Pastors more visible, and established to excel in their works.
Speaking during a breakfast meeting organized last Tuesday, September 1, at Grace of God Mission, Mgbidi in Oru West LGA, the convener of the Newlife Gospel Ministers Network International, Pastor Newman Chukwudire disclosed that the organization is a “forum where Pastors gather to know themselves, help themselves as worthy messengers of the gospel,” adding that working together would help them complement each other and take their place in the society as deserved
Pastor Newman observed that some pastors have skills others could use, saying that they needed each other to excel.
He lamented that many Pastors were not living well due to certain handicaps and the Newlife Gospel Ministers Network would be like a family for Pastors to fall back on when in need.
Pastor Newman added that the platform would afford Pastors opportunities to acquire their necessities to serve God such as more education, skills, prayers for each other, counsel each other, encourage each other, etc.
In his contribution, Rev. Chukwuemerie Joseph of the Grace of God Mission, Mgbidi called on all Ministers to key into the platform, observing that “no man is an island” and that with combined effort Ministers of the gospel could achieve a lot as they are to complement each other and not compete with each other.
Rev. Chukwuemerie expressed delight that the package in their union would transform Pastors and their Ministries for effective service delivery.
Also, the prayer Director, Bishop D.U.O. Anozie described the platform as encouraging, saying that coming together as brothers with a common cause was better than doing it all alone.
