Papua New Guinea: Clergy Workshops

Antisocial activities such as use of illicit drugs, women and child abuse and other waves of crimes are increasing in PNG.

Clergy need to be aware of how to deal with these during the course of their ministry. They must keep up with the changes and know how to minister to both victims and perpetrators.

The prime objective of bringing the clergy together every two years is to generate motivation among clergy to be innovative and charismatic in preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Church in PNG wants to bring clergy together for planned activities that would concentrate on different ways of proclaiming the Gospel. The project will be ongoing and take place every second year for the next six years when some positive transformative results are achieved.

This project is revisiting the proclamation of the Gospel as the Church has moved away from its traditional role and responsibility. The Church ministry is refocussing again on her prime purpose of establishment in PNG. The transformative power of the Gospel is what this workshop seeks to bring forth to empower the clergy and in turn they may be agents of change for transforming Anglican communities in this age.

The Diocese of Aipo Rongo is seeking counter funding of $4,000 from a partner church to meet part of the cost component so that 28 members of the clergy can receive this important training.

PG016ST- Clergy Workshops needs $4,000 in 2015 (non tax-deductible)

Project Update

November 2015 – ABM sincerely apologises for the incorrect details published regarding this project. The funding is not for the Diocese of Dogura, but for the Diocese of Aipo Rongo. Unfortunately due to the remoteness of Aipo Rongo and difficulties of meeting costs for participants to attend the clergy workshops in Mt Hagen, we have been informed that it has been delayed until 2016. Thank you for your support and understanding.
