Over 80 members of the Department of Youth and Young Adults Ministries of the Liberia Annual Conference, United Methodist Church has benefited from a two-day leadership and capacity building seminar at the St. Peter United Methodist Church in Weala, Margibi County.
Speaking at the end of the seminar recently, the acting directress of the Youth and Young Adults Ministry, Marie Mammy Giahyue, said the aims and objectives of the exercise are to educate young people of the Church on the genesis of the United Methodist Church, excellent leadership skills, facts and updates on the Ebola Virus Disease and parliamentary procedures.
She said the theme of the seminar was “Empowering Emerging Leaders to be Disciples of Jesus Christ.” Miss Giahyue explained that since her ascendency as acting directress of the department with the support of her colleagues, similar exercises have been carried out in other regions and the just-ended seminar was for six districts, including Weala, Gbarnga, Gompa, Kokoya, and Voinjama, respectively.
She urged participants of the seminar to return to their respective districts and share the knowledge acquired with fellow youth and young adults.
For his part, the Superintendent of the Weala District Conference, Rev. Paye Cooper Mondolo, expressed gratitude to the young people of the Liberia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church and urged the participants to take the Church seriously, reminding that they would succeed current leaders of the United Methodist Church.
