Mission and Evangelism Coordinators Conference 2017

We praise God for our annual meeting of Mission and Evangelism Coordinators which this year took place from 9th to 13th May. Coordinators from 14 different dioceses attended together with members of the Provincial Mission and Evangelism Committee.
Bishop James Almasi with Mission and Evangelism Coordinator
Christine Salaman

We were also blessed to be together with the Chairman of the department the Rt. Rev. Bishop James Almasi from the dayosisi of Masasi.

The meeting was a great time to share experiences and encourage each other in this important work.

We also had some inspiring and encouraging teaching about "the importance of Music in Evangelism", "the transformation and salvation of our thoughts" and the importance of financial giving in the church.

Visit to Dodoma Cathedral
On the final day participants had the opportunity to explore the city of Dodoma and visit some of the institutions of the Anglican Church of Tanzania which was a worthwhile experience as many had travelled a long way and have had little opportunity to explore the capital.

Farewell to the Mission and Evangelism Coordinator

The meeting also was an opportunity to say farewell to the current Provincial Mission and Evangelism Coordinator, Christine Salaman and to welcome the new part time Coordinator Rev Paul Mahiza.

Teaching from Rev. Dr. William Kopwe
Please pray for Rev Mahiza as he is taking on the huge job of running 2 departments at the Provincial office, and also continue to pray for the resources to enable us to employ a full time coordinator.

Please continue to pray for the Mission and Evangelism coordinators in all 27 dioceses of the Anglican Church of Tanzania, that God will provide all they need to reach out to their communities, preaching and teaching the Word of God. Please pray that despite the changes that are taking place the Mission and Evangelism department and its ministry will continue to grow and thrive.

We are now preparing for the annual week of prayer and evangelism which will take place from 29th May to 4th June. Please pay for the outreach and activities what will take place during this week, and for the day of offering to support the department which will take place on 4th June, which is Pentecost Sunday.

Many thanks for your prayers and support. If you wish to support any of our projects financially please donate on the just giving link above. Thank you
