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.
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:

1. REGIONAL EMPOWERMENT VISITS 2018
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:
2. 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 on Friday, 24 February 2018. We are looking forward to engage with our church through this useful online platform.
Blessings and favour for 2018!
