The United Methodist Church in Liberia has ended a three-day retreat in Kakata, Margibi County, aimed at preparing key leaders of the church spiritually, academically and intellectually for a nationwide crusade in March, 2015.
Speaking to reporters in Kakata on Wednesday, the Dean of the Gbarnga School of Theology and Coordinator of the Crusade, Rev. Dr. Jerry P. Kulah said the crusade will be hosted in four major regions across Liberia, namely Kakata, Buchanan, Gbarnga and Monrovia.
Rev. Kulah said the importance of the crusade is to unite the people of God and make the Gospel accessible to those who have not received the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal savior. He said the Church as a partner of the government, has a responsibility to make sure the spiritual health of the country is strong, while its economic status is being improved.
The Methodist prelate disclosed that the Church has four major objectives that it seeks to achieve during the crusade, including reaching the lost, strengthening the United Methodist Churches within the Liberia Annual Conference , equipping pastors and strengthening education across the country. He said pastors and other Church leaders will also receive trainings and materials as well as scholarships for less fortunate students in those regions.
