Nuusflits: Vrydag, 9 Februarie

Kollega,

Ek vertrou dat dit goed gaan met jou in die nuwe jaar! Neem asseblief kennis dat landlyn telefone a.g.v kabeldiefstal, in en rondom die AGS Hoofkantoor af is.

Volgens Telkom sal dit ongelukkig tussen 3-5 weke neem om te herstel. Ons het ‘n alternatiewe reëling getref waarvolgens daar steeds na die bestaande landlyn nommers  gebel kan word en na ‘n selfoon herlei word. Ons ontvangsdame (Letta) sal ‘n boodskap neem en die betrokke personeel lid sal per selfoon terugskakel. Ons is jammer oor die ongerief en vertrou dat hierdie inligting meer duidelikheid verskaf.

Ek wil hierdie geleentheid gebruik om jou aandag op 2 sake te rig:

VERKLARING DEUR SARS
Die Suid-Afrikaanse Inkomstediens (SAID) het onlangs ‘n verklaring uitgereik oor sy plan om moontlike belastingversuim in die godsdienstige sektor te ondersoek. Dit sluit kerke in. Pastore, Beheerliggame en Streekkomitees moet bewus wees van die belastingverpligtinge van kerke en hul werknemers.

EDUCATION & TRAINING: KORREKTE AANSOEK PROSESSE

Die afgelope paar weke het ons ‘n aantal navrae ontvang oor die korrekte aansoekprosedures vir teologiese studies.

Om die korrekte aansoekprosedures te sien, klik asseblief op die onderstaande skakel en laai die inligting in PDF-formaat af:

 Education & Training Korrekte Aansoekprosedures

Vir opgedateerde aansoekvorms:

1. GESAMENTLIKE GEBED VIR SUID-AFRIKA

Dit is ‘n algemene feit dat Suid-Afrika uitdagings ervaar op vele tereine. Die belangrikste verantwoordelikheid van Christene is om ernstig en getrou te bid. Op 24 Februarie vind ‘n landswye gebedsinitiatief plaas. My versoek is dat pastore en gemeenskapsleiers dit biddend sal oorweeg om vrywillig ‘n gebedspunt in hul plaaslike gemeenskap te koördineer. So ‘n individu word bemagtig om die gebedspunt te koördineer en ontvang ‘n hulpbron pakket.

Wees bewus van die nodige inligting om deel te neem aan wat ek glo is ‘n God-geïnspireerde inisiatief.

2. NOB STREEKSBESOEKE 2018

Die NOB se besoeke aan ons streke skop binnekort af. Ons sien uit daarna om tyd te spandeer saam met elke streeks-, netwerk- en departementele komitee, asook al ons pastore, hul beheerliggame en ander leiers in die kerk. Die doel van hierdie besoeke is om strategiese kwessies met die leierskap van die kerk te deel en sluit opleiding, besprekings, refleksie en terugvoersessies in.

Die strategiese kwessies vir 2018 fokus op: ● Opvolgbeplanning (Succession Planning) ● Tradisionele sending paradigma vs. Missionaliteit paradigma ● Leierskap Ontwikkeling ● Game Plan terugvoer ● “Coaching” vehoudinge in streke, netwerke en departemente ● Praktiese eenheid/kohesie. Hiermee die datums en plekke vir ons 2018 streeksbesoeke:

3. AFM WEBBLAD

Die Nasionale Kantoor is opgewonde om aan te kondig dat die huidige webwerf (wat die afgelope 4 jaar sy doel gedien het) in die proses is om opgedateer te word. Die webwerf sal nuttige en opgedateerde inligting verskaf aan ons AGS pastore, leiers, lidmate en die breër Christelike gemeenskap.

Die nuwe webwerf sal einde Februarie 2018 aangeskakel word. Ons sien uit om met alle rolspelers van die kerk te skakel deur hierdie nuttige aanlyn platform.

Seën!

AFM Newsflash: Friday, 9 February 2018

Dear Colleagues,

Greetings! I trust that the new year is treating you well. Please note that due to cable theft the area around and including the AFM Head Office are currently without landline telephone connections.

According to Telkom it will unfortunately take 3-5 weeks to restore. An alternative arrangement was made whereby the normal Telkom numbers for Head Office are diverted to a cellphone. Our receptionist (Letta) will take a message and the relevant staff member will return the call per cellphone. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and trust that this explanation gives some clarity.

I would also like to use this opportunity to direct your attention to two very important issues:

STATEMENT BY SARS

The South African Revenue Service (SARS) recently issued a statement on its plan to investigate possible tax non-compliance in the religious sector. This includes churches. Pastors, Governing Bodies and Regional Committees, should be aware of the tax obligations of churches and their employees.

1. UNITED PRAYER FOR SOUTH AFRICA

It’s not necessary to mention that South Africa is experiencing difficulties on many terrains. The main responsibility of Christians is to pray earnestly and faithfully to God. On the 24th of February a nationwide prayer initiative is taking place. My request is that pastors and community leaders prayerfully consider volunteering and co-ordinating a prayer point in their local community. Every community leader that volunteers receives a resource pack and will be empowered to coordinate the prayer point.

Please read the information and be part of what I believe, is a God-inspired initiative:

We are excited to commence with our annual NOB empowerment visits. The NOB is looking forward to connect with regional, network and departmental committee members as well as all our Pastors, their Governing Bodies and other leaders in the church. The aim of these visits is to bring key issues to the leadership of the AFM and includes training, discussions, reflection and feedback sessions.

The key issues for 2018 include a focus on: ● Succession Planning ● Traditional mission paradigm vs. missionality paradigm ● Leadership Development ● Game Plan feedback ● Coaching relationships in regions, networks & departments ● “Practical” cohesion. Kindly find the dates and venues below:

3. AFM WEBSITE

The National Office is excited to announce that the current website (which served us well for the last 4 years) is in the process of being updated and revamped. Apart from receiving a fresh “look and feel” the website will provide useful and updated information to AFM pastors, leaders, members and the wider Christian community.

The new website will be live by the end of February. We are looking forward to engage with our church through this useful online platform.

Blessings!

Kollega,

Ontvang hiermee my beste wense vir die nuwe jaar! Ek bid dat God vir jou die nodige wysheid, kapasiteit en salwing sal gee vir jou bediening in 2018 en ook daarna. Ek herinner jou graag aan die feit dat die maand van Januarie in die AGS gewy word aan gebed en vas. Ek is dankbaar vir die wat alreeds hiermee besig is.

AFM Newsflash: Friday, 26 January 2018

Dear Colleagues,

Accept my best wishes for the New Year. I pray that God will give you the wisdom, capacity and anointing for your ministry in 2018 and beyond. I would like to remind you that January is dedicated to Prayer & Fasting in the AFM. I am thankful to all of you who have already commenced with prayer & fasting.
