From the beginning of September, the Dashiqiao City TSPM held a one-month training course for pastors in Dashiqiao, China's northeastern Liaoning Province.
In the New Life Church where the Dashiqiao CC&TSPM ( Christian Council & Three-Self Patriotic Movement) is located, the training was held mainly for principals, pastors, and fellow workers in each church in Dashiqiao. Since the grassroots churches are spread across towns and villages, they planned to hold the course for the participants before the autumn harvest. They shared truths from the Bible in the class for the purpose of improving the missionary ability of the pastors.
Pastor Hou Yujie, chairman of the Dashiqiao TSPM, and other pastor co-workers gave sermons on the Old and the New Testament in special topics every day.
Because it was half-day training, participants came to the New Life Church and went back home every day. Some pastors were ill but still participated in the training.
After the training, Pastor Hou Yujie also discussed the affairs of the church with some pastors and leaders.
More than 100 people from Dashiqiao city and nearby towns attended the training.
