Mentoring a Generation…
Our RTC “Mentoring a Generation” conferences are in full swing.
Today was a travel day from Mpika to Mansa, Zambia. The team had the privilege of driving the five hour journey with the newly elected leader of the Pentecostal Assemblies of God Zambia (PAOGZ), Robertson Nonde.
Tomorrow, we begin another two day conference, where we will present mentoring, not as a structured program, but as a natural outflow of relationships.
God has put an incredible team of presenters together. Brian Rutten and Mamusha Fenta from Ethiopia are sharing about the multiplication that is happening in their country through healthy mentoring relationships. Harrison Sakala, the former leader of the PAOGZ and myself, are challenging Zambian pastors and leaders to develop positive mentoring relationships that are unique to this country.
Here is what a few pastors and leaders said about the conference in Mpika:
“Mentoring is something I usually come across in my reading, but this time round it has been taught in the best way possible.”
“It has been a very informative and nourishing (in the Spirit) conference. I have learned how I can be a good father and mentor.”
“The conference has taught us to move a step further in terms of unity, love and harmony in our local churches.”
“The Mentoring a Generation conference has been an eye opening conference on the importance of relationships amongst leaders…God bless you for this wonderful topic.”
I wish you could have been with me as over 225 leaders joined hands in a circle at the close of our Mpika conference praying for generational unity in Zambia. It makes everything we do here on the Continent worth it when you see people praying for their nation.
Next Monday, I will give a full report of all three conferences. Don’t forget that you can follow the events as they unfold this week on FB or check out my Twitter account @dcmann50.
Until next Monday…
