MORE than 800 believers attended an Easter Camp at the Christian Revival Crusade (CRC) church in Port Moresby over the Easter weekend.
It was a provincial gathering that saw Christians from other CRC churches in Moresby and Central participated in a four-day event at the Bethel Centre in Waigan to commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus.
CRC Missions coordinator Geua Toguata said the focus was on missions and training and teaching of candidates who had an interest in becoming missionaries.
“We don’t just send out missionaries we make sure they are well trained and spiritually equipped to go out there and spread the gospel,” Toguata said.
He said there were places in the world that still needed to know about the gospel of Jesus Christ and it was their priority to make sure missionaries going out were well equipped both spiritually and mentally.
Toguata said just like our local PNG products like coffee and Ox & Palm that were recognised internationally we have to train our missionaries locally to meet the demand for the gospel on a national and international level.
He said the missionaries have to be trained and processed here nationally before they go out to serve this higher calling abroad.
Pastor Jennah Gwaibo, from CRC World Missions, said most of the Christians who attended the Easter camp were youths.
Two other CRC national events will be held in Port Moresby later this year – the Missions fiesta on May 18 and the National Women’s Convention from July 1-5.
