ABOUT 80 students from Gaulim Teachers College were part of a number of students from the New Guinea Islands who attended a Leaders seminar in East New Britain province over the weekend.
Gaulim Teachers College principal Siegeru Woda said the seminar was organised by the Tertiary Students Christian Fellowship (TSCF) in the region.
TSCF is an evangelical student movement across university campuses, high schools, secondary schools and colleges in the country.
It is a member of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES).
IFES said the Papua New Guinean student movement involved 10,000 students in 66 chapters, plus an additional six graduate networks.
It is understood that the Tertiary Students Christian Fellowship is involved in evangelism as well as awareness campaigns on social issues such as HIV/AIDS and other health-related issues.
The leadership seminar was organised particularly for TSCF students in the New Guinea Islands region to empower them to become leaders in their communities and in their institutions.
They were guided by the theme “unite and restore through God’s Word to empower and impact God-fearing leaders for this nation”.
TSCF branches existed in PNG educational institutions over many years.
