The National Office Bearers are looking forward to connect with the church leadership in the upcoming NOB Empowerment Visits! I encourage you to attend this strategic gathering in your province. More information is given below in this Newsflash.

We hereby invite all AFM Pastors, Governing Body Members, Leaders and National Youth to the 2020 NOB Empowerment Visits. The intention of the Empowerment Visits is to inform, equip, train and engage in dialogue on matters of strategic importance to the church. I want to strongly encourage you to attend the empowerment session in your province.

The theme for the visits is:

We are looking forward to engaging with the church on the following topics:

  1. The Impact of the Ministry on Pastor’s Children.

2. UP4SA – National Prayer Initiative

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 1st of March 2020 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 resources 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:
