empowering: pmb to host 15th christian school

2008-04-01 00:00

Christian leaders around the world are looking to South Africa for guidance and, in pursuit of this, 200 delegates from around the world will participate in a Christian leadership empowering school in Pietermaritzburg this week.

River of Life Christian Ministries (ROLCM) will host this bi-annual event for the 15th time in Pietermaritzburg and hope that this event will boost tourism and the economy in the country.

The aim of this course, which started in 2001, is to “equip and empower church leaders so that they will be prepared for the changing seasons”, said Reverend Thamo Naidoo of ROLCM.

He said that is a great contradiction to the past, where third world countries would seek spiritual guidance and input from first world countries. Now, spiritual leaders from first world countries like Switzerland and the U.S. are seeking guidance in South Africa.

The church itself has contributed to the development of the country by building the Albert Falls guest lodge and conference centre and the RivLife community centre.
