3 May 2018   A new Generation of Leaders in Myanmar Dinner

The leveraged impact of equipping young leaders with Aung Mang & CK Hrang Tiam, Principal of MEGST (Myanmar Evangelical Graduate School of Theology)

6pm, Potters Park Event Centre, Sandringham, Auckland

If you've ever sponsored a young leader, or thought about it doing it, we invite you to join us for dinner at this special event in Auckland, to hear how your contribution makes a strategic difference for a young person called by God to lead, but living in poverty.

More info coming shortly, but here's a start on how Emerging leaders are sponsored.  This is a very brief background to Myanmar.  The video below was created by our network partners from Australia some time ago, when CK Hrang Tiam was a teacher at MEGST.

(And if you would like Aung or CK to speak at your church during March, April or May, please be in touch with our office.)

Live, Listen, Tell: The Art of Preaching, by Geoff New

Written principally for preachers and church leaders in the Majority World where English is not the first language, Live, Listen, Tell: The Art of Preaching is an easy read but challenging too. While written for a different context - it nevertheless "reads" well in the Kiwi setting. The prayer disciplines described in the book are enjoying increasing use in NZ and so it provides guidance in that with sermon writing in view.

Geoff New is the Dean of Studies at the Knox Centre for Ministry and Leadership, and the co-ordinator of kiwi-made preaching an initiative of Langham Partnership New Zealand.

Operation World  “Leadership development is the crucial bottleneck to Church growth. There is a worldwide lack of men and women truly called of God and deeply taught in the Scriptures to lead the churches … Those who accurately and effectively expound the Scriptures are few, especially in areas where the churches are growing rapidly.” Operation World 2010 p17
