TERTIARY Students Christian Fellowship (TSCF) Madang regional chapter saw about 100 of its final-year students graduate last Saturday.
In a small gathering at Christ Ambassadors’ Church in Madang, the TSCF students from Divine Word University, Madang Teachers’ College, Madang Technical College and Lutheran School of Nursing received their membership certificates from the TSCF national office in Port Moresby.
Guest speaker Pastor Sam Petali encouraged students to maintain high morality at their work place and in communities to make a difference.
He said he hoped the students were ready to face the realities of the different challenges in life.
“Is your training preparing you enough to triumph over the obstacles and meet the demands of the work place?” he said.
“The market place is challenging and are you prepared to hold onto Jesus and perform to the expectations of your employer? Let your life speak for Jesus wherever you are in your next chapter of life.”
The TSCF regional coordinator Samuel Ray said: “TSCF is a sleeping giant that can change this nation for the good. Graduates and students need to stay focused to collectively bring about the changes that PNG long to see.”
“It is as old as PNG and has produced professional graduates in all sectors in PNG and abroad for the last 40 years,” Ray said.
TSCF is an interdenominational student fellowship group established in all the tertiary and secondary institutions in the country.
Its final-year students are given certificates at the end of the year.
DWU linguistic department’s Prof Craig Volker and Ministers Fraternal chairman Por Kario Veneo were among the guests who attended the graduation ceremony.
