Gospel Ministers from across the world are set to converge in Harare for this year’s God’s Generals International Ministry (GGIM) conference penciled for December.
GGIM is a global forum of ministers of the gospel that seeks to converge and share ideas, wisdom and fellowship in faith as servants of God.
According to the founding president of the forum Bishop Adelino Nyabanga, the conference will see various minister of the gospel being conferred with honorary degrees for their work in the body of Christ.
“God’s General International Ministries formation is meant to complement each other as ministers of the Gospel in our areas of different gifting, learning and benefitting from the various resources of the fraternity of pastors available in our nation and beyond. We are expecting large numbers of church leaders to converge.
“We are expecting large numbers of church leaders and the conference will be graced by motivational speaker Arthur Marara, musicians Pastor Haisa, Baba Mechanic Manyeruke and our guest of honour will be Archbishop Bartholomew Manjoro and Amai Edith Manjoro. There is also going to be conferment of honorary degrees,” said Bishop Nyabanga
Conference president Pastor Stanley Moyana said the forum will bring together church leaders from different denominations something which was lacking in the country.
“There has been a lack of a forum to accommodate all pastors in the work of God and we are honored that this is a different conference that will bring together various men and women of God. We are going to have a special ordination ceremony that will be led by Archbishop Manjoro. The ordination will see pastors being given certified Ordination Certificates. We will also be conferring gospel Ministers with honorary degrees from the country’s top theological colleges,” said Moyana
Turning to the upcoming elections Moyana said they will carry and sustain the message of peace in the build-up, during and after the election.
“As the church we carry the banner of peace and as such anything that is peaceful we are in full support. We know we are going towards our national election as a country just less than a year, there are possibilities that we may have political leaders to address us and I know that as they address us they do so in promotion for peace and there is no reason why they shouldn’t come to reinforce that idea of peace.
“We trust our political leaders they are mature enough, we trust them they are experienced enough and they have a nation at heart and as such as God’s Generals Formation we have no problem with having them come to address this platform of pastors as long as it’s something that promotes peace, stability and tranquility in our nation. As a church we are also stakeholders in the running of the nation. The Church carries such a great percentage of the population in every nation. Our message as the God’s general Platform to the political parties is that everything should be done in peace and as the Church” he said
