Colleague,

I trust that you are well! Please take note of the following important press release that is released today by the AFM of SA:

AFM MEDIA STATEMENT
REGARDING THE FAKE RESURRECTION DISPLAYED ALL OVER THE MEDIA

In today’s Newsflash, I would like to share with you some strategic issues from the National Office Bearers’ meetings. I remind you of the new dates for the AFM National Conference in September. Furthermore, the NOB Empowerment Visits are going extremely well and we would like to encourage you to join us on one of the remaining dates.

 1.  STRATEGIC MATTERS FROM THE NATIONAL OFFICE BEARERS MEETINGS

  • Students Ministry in Higher Education Institutions

The National Office Bearers (NOB) are currently discussing the importance of the AFM’s focus and investment to fund campus ministries at the various campuses throughout the country and to strengthen AFM student associations. A number of AFM student associations have been registered and are ministering on campuses already. A meeting between the leaders of campus ministries and the NOB is planned for June 2019.

  • Declining Assemblies

The NOB is aware of several rural and small-town assemblies who are experiencing a decline due to a variety of reasons. An ad hoc Committee was appointed by the National Leadership Forum (NLF) to investigate this matter. The wellness of assemblies is an important matter that should receive the continuous attention of local, regional and national leadership and the NOB is therefore considering several possibilities.

  • Multicultural Services and -Assemblies

The National Office Bearers recently had a meeting with a number of pastors and role players with knowledge and experience about multicultural services and -assemblies. The participants shared their journeys in transitioning from a mono- to a multicultural approach. A follow-up meeting with more role players is planned with a view of developing a practical strategy in this regard.

  • Church Planting

The National Office Bearers are in the process of discussing and consulting with different role players on the development of a church planting and -growth strategy/ies for the AFM.

2. 2019 AFM NATIONAL CONFERENCE

Please note that there has been a change in the date of the 2019 National Conference. Due to practicalities at the venue, the date moves one week earlier and the conference is now starting with the evening service on Sunday 15 September and concluding with the evening service on Wednesday 18 September 2019. The venue will be at the:

Lighthouse Ministries, 275 Voortrekker Road Parow, Cape Town.

There will be PCD sessions from 10:30-12:30 and 14:00-15:30 on Monday 16 and Tuesday 17 September 2019. Participants can accumulate 5 PCD credits per day, talling 10 credits for the two days.

3. NOB EMPOWERMENT VISITS 2019: A SPECIAL INVITATION

We hereby extend a special invitation to all our pastors, governing body members, national youth and leaders in the church to attend this year’s NOB (National Office Bearers) Empowerment Visits.

Kollega,

Ek vertrou dat dit met jou goed gaan! Neem asseblief kennis van die volgende belangrike persverklaring wat vandag deur die AGS uitgereik is:

AFM MEDIA STATEMENT

In vandag se Nuusflits deel ek graag met jou ‘n paar strategiese kwessies vanuit die Nasionale Ampsdraers se vergaderings. Ek herinner jou weer aan die nuwe datums vir die AGS Nasionale Konferensie in September. Verder verloop die NOB Bemagtigingsbesoeke uiters goed en ons wil jou aanmoedig om by ons aan te sluit op een van die oorblywende datums.

1. STRATEGIESE KWESSIES VANUIT DIE NASIONALE AMPSDRAERS VERGADERINGS

  • Studente Bediening by Hoër Onderwys Instellings

Die Nasionale Ampsdraers van die kerk is tans besig met gesprekvoering oor die belangrikheid van die AGS se fokus op en belegging in die befondsing van kampus bedieninge op die verskeie kampusse in ons land en om AGS Studente verenigings te ondersteun. ‘n Hele paar AGS studente verenigings is alreeds geregistreer en bedien studente op verskeie kampusse. ‘n Ontmoeting tussen die leiers van kampus bedieninge en die Ampsdraers word beplan vir Junie 2019.

  • Krimpende gemeentes

Die Ampsdraers is bewus van verskeie gemeentes in veral plattelandse gebiede wat om verskeie redes krimp.  ‘n Ad hoc kommittee is deur die Nasionale Leiers Forum (NLF) aangewys om die saak te ondersoek. Die welstand van gemeentes is ‘n baie belangrike saak en verdien die voortdurende aandag van plaaslike, streek en nasionale leierskap. Die Nasionale Ampsdraers oorweeg tans verskeie moontlikhede.

  • Multikulturele dienste en -gemeentes

Die ampsdraers het onlangs gesprek gevoer met pastore en rolspelers met kennis en ervaring ten opsigte van multikulturele dienste en -gemeentes. Die deelnemers het hulle ervaringe in die oorgang van ‘n mono- na ‘n multikulturele benadering, en die lesse wat hulle geleer het gedeel. ‘n Opvolg byeenkoms met meer rolspelers en met die oog daarop om ‘n praktiese strategie ten opsigte hiervan te ontwikkel, word beplan.

  • Kerkplanting

Die Ampsdraers voer gesprek oor en is in konsultasie met verskillende rolspelers ten opsigte van die ontwikkeling van ‘n kerkplanting en -groei strategie vir die AGS.

1.  TIPS ON MITIGATING THE IMPACT OF LOADSHEDDING

On Monday February 11, 2019 when South Africa remembered the release of Mr. Nelson Mandela from prison, Eskom’s six generators developed functional capacity. Consequently, Eskom escalated load shedding from Stage 2 to Stage 4. Since then the country is going through Stage 3 load shedding. South Africa only had a brush with Stage 4 in 2015. Stage 4 load shedding has the disastrous potential to plunge large part of the country into darkness. According to the Minister of Public Enterprises, Mr. Pravin Gordan, Eskom is in a crisis which has been caused by structural, operational and financial capacity.

All of us, need to brace ourselves for the difficult days ahead. Let us not forget about the Up4SA nation-wide prayer initiative next weekend. I encourage all our pastors and congregations to establish prayer points in their local communities. We cannot let this opportunity for fervent prayer pass by. You can connect with this initiative through:

Past. Robbie Black 082 462 1540

Important tips to mitigate the effects of load shedding:

  1. Communication: Ensure that your cellphone, laptop, tablet and radio are always fully charged when power is available. This will allow you to be able to communicate with friends and family during load-shedding.
  2. Transport: Make sure that your vehicle always has fuel in the tank as most petrol stations may be unable to pump fuel during power outages.
  3. Cash: Keep some cash with you as ATMs cannot operate without electricity.
  4. Security and safety: Backup batteries for electrically operated gates, garage doors and security systems should be kept in a good working condition and be able to last through periods of load-shedding. Regular testing of these backup batteries is essential.
  5. Store temporary light sources such as battery-powered torches, gas lamps and candles in places where they will be easy to find in the dark.
  6. Eating: If you do not have a gas stove, prepare meals before the power is scheduled to be switched off. Boil water in your kettle and keep it in thermos flasks for hot drinks. You can also use an insulating cover on teapots, pots and pans to keep drinks and meals warm.
  7. Most medication requiring refrigeration can be kept in a closed fridge for several hours without spoiling but you should check with your doctor or pharmacist if in doubt.
  8. Print and refer to the load shedding schedule of your area to enable you to plan your properly.

1.  WENKE OM DIE IMPAK VAN BEURTKRAG TE BESTUUR

Op Maandag 11 Februarie 2019 toe Suid-Afrika die vrylating van Mnr. Nelson Mandela uit die tronk onthou, het Eskom se ses kragopwekkers funksionele kapasiteit ontwikkel. Gevolglik het Eskom beurtkrag verhoog vanaf ‘n Fase 2 na ‘n Fase 4. Sedertdien gaan die land deur Fase 3 beurtkrag. Suid-Afrika het eers in 2015 te doen gehad met ‘n Fase 4. Fase 4 het die potensiaal om ‘n groot deel van die land in duisternis te los. Volgens die Minister van Openbare Ondernemings, Mnr. Pravin Gordan, is Eskom in ‘n krisis wat veroorsaak word deur strukturele, operasionele en finansiële kapasiteit.

Almal van ons moet ons onsself voorberei vir die moeilike dae wat voorlê. Hiermee herinner ek jou graag weer aan die Up4SA landswye gebedsinitiatief wat plaasvind volgende naweek. Weer moedig ek al ons pastore en gemeentes aan om gebedspunte in hul plaaslike gemeenskappe te vestig. Ons kan nie hierdie geleentheid vir vurige gebed laat verbygaan nie. Jy kan betrokke raak by hierdie initiatief deur:

Up4SA Nasionale Koördineerder:
Past. Robbie Black 082 462 1540

Belangrike wenke om die impak van beurtkrag te verminder:

  1. Kommunikasie: Maak seker dat jou selfoon, skootrekenaar, tablet en radio altyd ten volle gelaai word wanneer krag beskikbaar is. Dit sal jou in staat stel om met vriende en familie te kommunikeer tydens beurtkrag.
  2. Vervoer: Maak seker dat jou voertuig altyd brandstof in het, aangesien die meeste vulstasies moontlik nie brandstof kan gee tydens kragonderbrekings nie.
  3. Kontant: Hou kontant by jou aangesien OTM’s nie sonder elektrisiteit kan funksioneer nie.
  4. Veiligheid: “Backup“ batterye vir elektriese hekke, garagedeure en sekuriteitstelsels moet in ‘n goeie werkende toestand gehou word en kan tydens beurtkrag nog steeds funksioneel wees. Gereelde toetsing van hierdie batterye is noodsaaklik.
  5. Berg tydelike ligbronne soos battery-aangedrewe fakkels, gaslampe en kerse op plekke waar jy dit maklik in die donker kan vind.
  6. Voorbereiding van kos: As jy nie ‘n gasstoof het nie, berei die maaltye voor voordat die krag afgeskakel word. Kook water in jou ketel en hou dit in flesse vir warm drankies. Jy kan ook ‘n isolerende bedekking op teepotte, potte en panne gebruik om drankies en etes warm te hou.
  7. Die meeste medisyne wat verkoeling benodig, kan vir ‘n paar uur in ‘n geslote yskas gehou word sonder skade, maar indien jy twyfel kontak jou dokter of apteker.
  8. Druk en verwys gereeld na die beurtkrag skedule van jou area om jou in staat te stel om behoorlik te beplan.

1.  OM SAAM TE BID

Graag wil ek dankie sê vir die gemeentes wat deelgeneem het aan die landswye AGS maand van vas en gebed gedurende Januarie 2019.

3.  SPECIAL REQUEST

One of our Pastors, Romien Joubert is currently busy with studies on the wellbeing of South African Church Leaders which remains a cause for concern: “Many church leaders are struggling to passionately persevere in ministry.”

The theoretical argument of her study is that resilience and the intentional and holistic cultivation thereof, could add immense value in offering a solution. Please assist her by completing a questionnaire focused on exploring church leaders’ understanding of resilience, their current attempts to build it into their lives, and their current resilience levels. Your participation and contribution is crucial and highly valued. Thank you in advance for your time.

3.  SPESIALE VERSOEK

Een van ons Pastore, Romien Joubert, is huidiglik besig met studies oor die welstand van Suid-Afrikaanse kerkleiers wat ‘n rede tot kommer bly:  “Many church leaders are struggling to passionately persevere in ministry.”

Die teoretiese argument van haar studie is dat veerkragtigheid (resilience) en die opsetlike en holistiese verbouing daarvan enorme waarde kan byvoeg tot ‘n moontlike oplossing.  Staan haar by deur ‘n vraelys te voltooi wat fokus op die ondersoek van kerkleiers se begrip van veerkragtigheid, hulle huidige pogings om dit in hulle lewens in te bou asook hulle huidige veerkragtigheidsvlakke.  Jou deelname en bydrae is noodsaaklik en hoogs gewaardeerd.  Dankie by voorbaat vir jou hulp.

Volg die onderstaande skakel om die vraelys te voltooi:
