Philippine Nazarene College, La Trinidad, Benguet:  Pastors and Leaders from across the Philippines met in Baguio City, Northern Philippines, April 21-25, for the 2014 Pastors and Leaders Conference.

Special prayer was held for the emerging young leaders of the church.

It was truly a blessed time as Regional Director,  Dr. Mark Louw, brought daily messages challenging the leaders to step out of their comfort zones, reaffirm their commitment to the call of our Lord to Go and Make Disciples, and in so doing, embrace, engage, train up, and empower our young emerging leaders within the church.

“If we don’t allow our young leaders the opportunity to engage with the church, we will lose them,” said Louw.  “We are in a very critical time for the church.”

Thursday night’s service ended with a specific time of prayer, where Louw asked the conference attendees to take seriously the need to, as a church, humble ourselves and seek the Lord for guidance.

The theme of  PALCON 2014 was taken from Matthew 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 

 

More times of praise, prayer, and worship.

It was a very fitting conclusion to the prior week’s National Emerging Leaders Summit.

We are praying that those who were present will not forget the challenge, but will go forth with a renewed commitment to take the Gospel  beyond their walls and comfort zones, to places where it has not yet been.

And of course...fellowship!
