5000 youths expected as Apostolic church plans Moresby convention


The Christian Apostolic Fellowship Church (CAF) of Papua New Guinea will host a week-long national youth convention which starts this Sunday, at Gordon Secondary School in Port Moresby.
Camp organising committee member and NCD CAF youth leader Joshua Pokia said the theme of the convention was ‘The great commission – youths reaching youths for Christ’, based on Matthew 28:18-20.
He anticipates that more than 5000 young people from all CAF churches across PNG and abroad will attend.
“We have invited NCD Governor Powes Parkop to open our convention and we pray that our one-week convention will be enjoyable,” he said.
“The guest speakers for the convention are Pastor Matthew Tapus, the CAF general superintendent (PNG); Rev Anthony Dalaka, senior pastor of Corner Stone AOG Church; Ps Robert Lepatu, from Sydney, Australia; Ps Hewitt Junior, of Dream Builders, Bunbury, Western Australia; and others.
Pokia said they would be hosting one of the founding fathers of the CAF movement, Pastor Piuk Peter Lasala, as the guest of honour for the closing ceremony during which he would pass on the baton to the younger generation to fulfill the great commission.
“The last youth camp was hosted in Lae, Morobe province, and this year we have decided to move the camp to the National Capital District,” Pokia said.
