Pastor’s Conference – 2013
Pastor Arvind and his family
The last of the back-to-back-to-back conferences we held in November was the annual Pastor’s Family Conference. The theme of the conference was the Holy Spirit. Please pray that the Lord would continue to knit our hearts together and unite us to accomplish His purposes, not by might, not by power, but by His Spirit.Something new at this year’s conference was our guest speaker Pastor Godfrey Fernandez, whose teaching focused on the practical side of ministry. He asked provocative questions – How do you know the Lord’s will for your church? How do you prioritize God, Family and Church? What ministry does your wife have? When’s the last time you helped her do the dishes?
Godfrey is a young pastor with teenage children who has spent a lot of time in America and in Western ministry organizations, but has made a commitment to live and teach and plant churches in India. He had the understanding and credibility to bring up cultural and family issues and his talks started a lot of conversations during our tea and dinner breaks!
