Pastoral Leadership Conference

Pastors in Ethiopia Unite for God’s Glory

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Romans 15: 5, 6 NIV

WorldServe Ministries was excited to bring together more than 150 Ethiopian pastors for a Pastoral Leadership Conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  In partnership with the Ethiopian Yehiwot Berhan Church, the second largest evangelical church in Ethiopia, this conference was the first of its kind. The conference focused on equipping local pastors in leadership skills, character building, networking, and evangelism.  It also provided the pastors opportunities to encourage and pray for each other.

The pastors, who  were overjoyed to attend such an enriching and beneficial conference, left feeling better equipped to lead their churches and  to serve their communities.

“The things that I learned at this conference will help me in my ministry so much, “ said one pastor. “ I know that I will be able to be a better leader and will be able to reach my community successfully with God’s help.” 

Equipping churches to advance the Good News of Jesus Christ is at the very heart of WorldServe Ministries and hosting conferences such as this is just one of the many ways we do this.
