18 OCTOBER ENG 2019

Dear Colleagues,

I trust you are well! Kindly take note of two important strategic issues that are relevant to all AFM registered assemblies.

1. CENSUS 2019: CALL TO ACTION

Please note that the Assembly Census forms must be completed and send back to the Regional Secretaries/Administrators by 30 November 2019. The Regional Secretaries/Administrators will then compile the information and forward it to the AFM Head Office by 31 January 2020.

Why do we need to complete the census forms?

  • Firstly, for internal use. As a church with a national footprint we need to know for our own future planning and strategic alignment how many assemblies, ordained pastors, assembly leaders, etc. we have. It is also important for us to know how many members we have and how their numbers are made up age wise. This will enable us to plan for future ministry development and growth.
  • Secondly, for external use. We are regularly involved in discussions with other churches, organizations and government structures where specific statistics and information determine our participation and input.
Please enquire with your Regional Secretary or Administrator for support.

2. OCTOBER: PASTOR’S APPRECIATION MONTH

As a church, we have established a tradition over the last couple of years to especially focus on appreciating our pastors/ assembly leaders, their spouses and children during the month of October.

“Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.” Hebrews 13:7(ESV)

Please note that a circular was sent to Governing Bodies of all AFM Assemblies and Departments with regards to this matter.
