Pastors of different churches are urged to register for a course in Bible studies to become better pastors and in order to avoid becoming involved at illegitimate churches.

This call to recruit others to join them in studying truth and honesty within churches, is made by the Ritchie Late Harvest Ministries Bible School, from which a group of pastors graduated on Saturday, 18 November.

The graduates all completed the one-year Pastors Leaders Training Course co-ordina­ted by Past. Louis and Past. Irene Farland, under the leadership of Past. Jurim Kim.

Past. Lukas Korneels was among the 37 Ritchie and Kuruman student pastors to graduate.

“I am now qualified to even bury the president or an ambassador,” said the proud Korneels.

As a member of the Zion Christian Church (ZCC) in Kuruman, he testified that he was proof that you did not need to belong to a particular church to participate in the course.

He had invited fellow pastors from Kuruman, whom he has been serving at the ZCC for the past 45 years, to come and witness his achievement and become ambassadors of growth.

“All you have to do is show commitment, obedience and perseverance and you will know that this course does not create fong kong.”

Speaker after speaker emphasised how one needed only to allow the spirit of God to dwell in one to be part of the Ritchie Bible School.

South African Development Community representative Apostle Laurie Maralack from Mahikeng elaborated that the students did not really need to have special qualifications to qualify for enrolment in the Pastors Leaders Training Course. They only needed to have the urge to learn the word of God and to understand it.

“All these graduates are now ambassadors and ready to go and teach the gospel of God,” said Maralack.

One of the graduates, Bonny Maphala, gave testimony of how the course healed her physically and emotionally after she had enrolled in it. Louis Farland, the principal of the school, said that they were impressed by the amount of growth and potential that the course has been showing over the past three years.

He added that they were looking at putting up satellite schools near the Christiana area, as a lot of interest was shown in those areas.

“It is open to all pastors and churches to promote Christian deve­lopment. It relies on guidelines of pastoring churches effectively and reading the Bible in context in order to teach and preach better,” said Farland.

Those interested in the course can call Irene Farland on 073-867-7348.
