Forty-seven volunteer staff in churches in Fujian Province, on the southeastern coast of China, completed training.
On August 24th, the graduation ceremony of the second phase of the third session of the Ningde CC&TSPM was held at Hanjiang Church in Xiapu County, said Ningde CC&TSPM.
Before passing each subject exam, the trainees attended the classes over two years consisting of 4 periods with each period lasting 9 days.
Pastor Li Fengxin, executive vice president and director general of Xiapu County Christian Council, delivered a sermon titled “You Go!". He encouraged the students to remember the mission with confidence, and not to get lost with discouragement. Li also exhorted them not to lose heart in the face of difficulties and not to get lost in the face of honor.
Then, the leaders and the pastors presented certificates of completion and souvenirs to the students.
Rev. Deng Lingyong, chairman and president of the Xiapu County CC&TSPM, encouraged them to do well in three kinds of relationships. First, do a good job in the relationship with God and pursue spiritual maturity through continuous spiritual practice. Secondly, do a good job in maintaining relationships with church members and unbelievers, and live in harmony and respect each other. Finally, build healthy relationships with the church and the government departments.
Rev. Lin Jiaxing, president of Ningde Municipal CC&TSPM, said that in the past five years, they had held two training courses over 8 periods.
