South America equips pastors, lay leaders

South America equips pastors, lay leaders

by | 09 Mar, 2018

The South America Region recently hosted training for lay leaders and clergy to help them more adequately reach their local communities.

Chile Ministries

Alessandro Polonio, national holistic ministries coordinator, led an annual ministry training seminar in cooperation with Chile's national leaders for Nazarene Youth International, Nazarene Missions International, Global Missions, Sunday School and Discipleship Ministries International, Nazarene Compassionate Ministries, Evangelism Ministries, and Women’s Ministries.

This strategy was carried out on the country's four districts for the past three years, and the sessions have been an important tool for local churches over the years. The next training sessions are scheduled for 10 March on the Chile North District and 24 March in the Bio Bio District.

Training also continues through a new website and app that allows participants to receive materials and dialogue through forums with their respective leaders.

Living the Great Commission Training

In the Central District of Cochabamba, Bolivia, a Living the Great Commission Training was held 3 March. The training session covered the "Mission of the Church" and "Structure and Strategy."

Pastors and leaders from different district ministries participated in this training, including District Superintendent Guido Delgadillo. After having passed the first round, Delgadillo is encouraging and training other churches to implement the Living the Great Commission strategy.

Nazarene Strengths

In Brazil's Southeast Paulista District, the Nazarene Strengths Institute’s Strengths 101 Workshop was held 2-3 March for 50 pastors.

A study done by the Gallup Institute found that leaders who are not conscious of their strong and weak points commit more significant errors than those who are. Organizers believe leaders are better prepared to meet tasks individually and collaboratively knowing better communication techniques.
