COCIN Prepares Batch 8 COPESS Pastors For Missions

Batch 8 Pastors of the COCIN Pastors Experience Service Scheme, COPESS have been charged to follow the Apostle’s teaching while in the mission fields and not neglect prayer which is a great weapon against the devil.
COCIN President, Rev. Dr. Dachollom Datiri gave the Charge recently while declaring open an orientation programme organized by the Church for the intending COPESS Pastors going into the mission fields.
According to him, when Christians are doing the will of God there will be a lot of miracles and therefore urged them to keep to the apostle’s teaching and to do away with any hindrance that will prevent them from doing the will of God.
“It is because of the Great Commission that the Church is sending you to the mission field to make disciples. Jesus taught his disciples in the field not in a class, therefore before your COPESS year runs out you are expected to have produced disciples that will continue with the work after you”, Rev. Dr. Datiri added.
The COCIN Deputy General Secretary, Rev. Dauda Jimra in his welcome address thanked God for granting the Pastors safe journey from their various destinations and called on them to pay close attention to all they will be taught because it will help them in the mission field.
There were goodwill messages from the Chairman RCC Vwang, Rev. Davou Rapp and the Chairman RCC Heikpang, Rev. Gwom Davou Gyang who is a member of the COPESS Committee.
Presentations covered during the programme include: COCIN Vision and Mission by COCIN President, Discipleship Skills by COCIN Vice President, The Importance of COPESS and History of COCIN by COCIN General Secretary, Pastor as a Role Model in the Society by COCIN Deputy General Secretary, Attitude and Character of COPESS Staff by Director of Personnel, Effective Cross Cultural Mission Principle by CCM Coordinator, Fighting Spiritual Powers by Rev. Ezekiel Dachomo and many others.
