NGC – Play, Pray and Partner
Our ministers came together to bond through Play, Pray in unity and Partner to grow the Next Generation ministries.
AG Next Generation Commissioning (NGC) gathered once again at “The Gathering” event on September 10, 2021, 2pm over ZOOM. 28 pastors from the different AG churches across Singapore who minister full-time to the Next Generation came together to connect. Ps Isaiah Fadzlin from Faith Assembly of God shared that “The Gathering” focuses on three aspects: Play, Pray and Partner where ministers come together to bond over Play, to Pray together in one Spirit, and Partner with different ministers in supporting the growth of Next Generation ministries.
Ps Jay Ong from Calvary Assembly of God started the event with fun and laughter over games. The Next Generation ministers competed with one another in a Treasure Hunt (ZOOM version) and Describe Yourself in another game. Bro Benjamin Tan, from Bethel Assembly of God led us into a beautiful time of worship. Voices were raised from different locations in unison to lift the name of God in worship.
The event moved dynamically into a time of sharing where our pastors and ministers were grouped into groups of seven for this purpose. They shared deeply about the needs of the Next Generation and how different churches can support one another to build God’s Kingdom. It was led by four facilitators: Ps Alvin Tay from Emmanuel Assembly of God, Sis Audrey Goh from Shekinah Assembly of God, Ps Lyanna Teo from Calvary Assembly of God and Ps Tan Yunyun from Zion Full Gospel Church. The ministers bonded deeper under their warm facilitation and meaningful partnerships were forged.
The Next Generation ministers assembled once again in the main ZOOM room to unite in prayer led by Ps David Sashi from Trinity Christian Centre. The ministers prayed fervently in the Spirit as one, to be empowered by the Spirit to touch the hearts of many young lives in Singapore. We prayed for young people to rise up and cause a rippling effect of God’s love to their generation. Rev Gerald Tan exhorted the ministers to continue to be connected with one another and especially with the Spirit.
AG NGC is thankful to the ministers for availing themselves to lead in different segments such as the ice breakers, worship, facilitation, prayer and exhortation. We are also deeply touched and appreciative of all our ministers who took time out from their busy schedules and participated in this event. It was an enriching time of bonding, prayer and partnership with one another as AG’s Next Generation ministers.
