THE FAITHFULNESS of God has continued to abound on ACFM Rwanda. The churches in Rwanda are progressing despite some challenges from government policy. ACFM Rwanda is under the supervision of Pastor Runyange Beniot an indigene of Rwanda and under the management of two national organs, the National Church Committee (NCC) and the National Pastors Forum (NPF), which oversees the affairs of the churches.
The nine branch churches are making progress in their growth and activities. Some are meeting in small group’s fellowship format, while others are meeting in their church halls.
A two – day leadership orientation seminar was held in Nairobi, Kenya, for the Deputy Legal Representative on ACFM vision, mission, structure and systems/processes as contained in the ACFM Administrative Manual. The seminar was very fruitful in revitalizing and strengthening the vision of the leadership team, for a measurable and sustainable work of ACFM in Rwanda.
After the seminar, the leader Pastor Benoit was able to visit all the churches and encouraged members; this gave new hope and fresh impetus to the work of the ministry.
The deputy legal representative held a meeting with all the pastors, shortly after he returned to Rwanda, to brief them and pass on information from the seminar in Nairobi and discussed the next steps that needed to be taking as regards the vision of ACFM Rwanda. This bolstered the confidence of the pastors and they expressed gratitude to the management for their efforts to advance the work of the mission.
During the meeting he retraced the need to continue with the structure put in place by Rev. Taiwo Sewusi before his relocation to Uganda. The Sunday school classes and lessons where reviewed and each branch church gave their report. A scheduled visitation was planned.
The Deputy Legal Representative visited all the branch churches to review their Sunday school classes and had meetings with the church leaders to encourage them.
PASTORS AND CHURCH LEADERS SEMINAR
A two – day pastors and leadership seminar was organised which was anchored by Pastor Abigail Sewusi as the guest speaker, together with the deputy legal representative to again recast the vision and mission of ACFM. The meeting was held in Kigali, the capital city. All the pastors and leaders from all the nine branches were in attendance.
