Sunday School Graduation

Over 117 children graduated from Sunday School to Joshua Generation (Youth Ministry) on Wednesday 19th December 2018 at a colorful event held at the Blessing Centre in Emmasdale.

The graduation ceremony was held during the Jesus Revolution Youth Camp 2018. With host Bishop Joe Imakando, Youth and Student Ministry pastor Oscar Mumba. The conference started from 17th to 21st December 2018 at the Blessing Centre in Emmasdale.

Guest speakers included Bishop Billy Mfula, Rev. Kangwa Mumba, Pastor Gladys Paswani, Pastor Klah and Pompi.

During the graduation Bishop Joe Imakando, spoke on a message entitled,’ Model Christ,’ from 1Timothy 4:12.

How do you model Christ?

  • In what you say
  • In your conduct
  • In love
  • In a teachable spirit
  • In faith in God
  • In purity

Sometimes youths are despised because:

  • They have no experience
  • They have a poor sense of judgement
  • They are emotional
  • They are too zealous
  • They have untested ideas
  • Live in a dream world.

However, God loves youths and they have dominion and power like Jeremiah and Gideon. Youths should model Christ because they will make Him more appealing.

- Even though you feel like it's over you can always cry out to God.
- God kept him alive to bring him to a point of repentance.
- He has kept you alive under normal circumstances you could have been finished. You have survived so much. He has kept you alive because he wants to answer your prayers.
- We are living in a time of desperate situation.
- God heard Jonah's prayer from the belly of the fish.
