Evangelical Reformed Church of Christ opens its doors in Nasarawa to Grace & Light volunteer teams.
More than 500 pastors attending the Evangelical Reformed Church of Christ’s annual national conference in Nasarawa State listened to our messages about social righteousness and sexual and gender-based violence.
“We had asked for an advocacy visit to speak with leaders of their regional church council. Instead we had the generous invitation to speak for 90 minutes at the national conference and reach a far wider audience,” said international coordinator Tassie Ghata.
Tassie talked in detail about the role of church pastors in role modelling Christ-centred behaviours and encouraging their congregations to live righteously according to scriptural values.
They were challenged to talk about sexual and gender-based violence issues with their congregations and to invite Grace & Light volunteer teams to minister during Sunday services.
“The pastors were open and very interested in our message, they asked lots of questions and agreed to open their churches to our volunteer teams. They also donated 100,000N (£200) to our work on the day.”
Please pray for:
- ERCC regional leaders and pastors in Nasarawa State as they speak about social righteousness with their congregations and encourage people to change their behaviours in families and at work
- Grace & Light teams visiting ERCC churches to share the gospel, counsel and test for HIV/ AIDS; the first was on 6 June.
