Mark Derby, a recently retired pastor from the United States who is now working with AFCI, and Sione Veituna, National Director for the Pacific Islands, just completed a three-day seminar for pastors and church leaders on the western side of Fiji. Nearly 150 pastors and lay leaders were present and the feedback was extremely positive.
“We need more of this,” one pastor wrote in his evaluation. The organizers of the seminar have requested that this be repeated at least once a year. Even more often, if possible. In addition, many pastors are now requesting help with either youth ministry or training in their local churches. Mark and Sione are working closely together to develop a plan for more comprehensive training seminars to help equip Fiji pastors to win their nation for Christ.
