Pastor Anthony Banda who is our Program Coordinator for Family and Economic Development is on a follow up trip to the orthern and Central part of Malawi where he is meeting with Church councils of different Churches of Pastors and Church leaders who attentded the 2012 Leaders conference. This is a very important trip as we would like to see the impact of these couple conferences which have been in progreess for the past 5 years. Though we have a lot of impact stories from the past conferences, we still have to see what is happening on the ground after the different teachings that the prople recieved at the conference. We want to thank all who obeyed the Lord when he asked you to donate no matter how small towards the up building of God's Kingdom.
This follow up trip also serves as a preparation for the 2013 conference. A lot of people are already coming to THM offices to be registered for this great time of Inspiration. It is important for Pastors and their spouses to spend time together with the Lord and themselves for a time of reflection and flashback. This pleases the Lord alot. This years' theme of the couples/leaders conference is " Be a leader". There are many Church leaders who call themselves leaders, but the question is, "are you a leader as God expects". Thanks alot and may you be praying for this years conference which has been scheduled between July 26 and Agust 13 God willing. Why don't you choose to be part of this conference in one way or the othere. Write to the director of Timothy Harvest Ministries for more information on this - firstname.lastname@example.org
Timothy Harvest Ministries and White Stone Community Church have worked together each of the past 5 years to sponsor 2 week-long conferences for pastors and their wives. Each conference is attended by about 50 pastor couples, who receive instruction on biblical, marital and agricultural topics. Representatives of THM and White Stone provide the teaching.
These conferences have been held at a resort-type facility, with attendees sleeping in tents. However, in the future they will be held at the Bethel Training Center. Meals, training materials and a bible are provided. Every man who attends a conference receives a T-shirt and every woman receives four yards of fabric as a gift from White Stone.
