A church in China’s northern Shanxi Province nurtured believers after the Spring Festival.
Yaodu District Church in Linfen, Shanxi, held its annual online retreat on January 30 with the theme "Strengthen and Rebuild the Foundation of Faith, Move Forward in Hope With Spiritual Revival." Pastors shared about church management, discipleship training, how to restore faith, spiritual revival, spiritual cultivation, and steady growth, combining the practical pastoral care of the church with systematic shepherding of believers. Over 1,900 key staff members from seven pastoral areas, fellowships, and CC&TSPMs in counties and cities near the church attended.
Huang Hailin preached the first sermon titled "You Must Shepherd My Sheep: A Brief Discussion on the Renewal and Direction of Pastoral Ministries After the Epidemic." Pastor Geng Fuqin's "The Book of Ezra: Return and Grace," Pastor Wang Shuai’s "Build a Glorious Church," and Pastor Guo Lingquan's "Captivity and Return."
