The high point of the Online training program was the plenary session with the Director of the ISM. Speaking on the inspiring topic - "Motivation for Ministry", the esteemed Director of the ISM admonished the cell leaders to regularly carry out personal appraisals of the work they do in ministry to be sure that their motivation for ministry is pure. She also highlighted the 3 major motivations that should guide what we do in ministry.
"The major motivation for every minister of the Gospel should be
i. Passion for the spread of the message of God's Love
ii. Passion for Souls; and
iii. Passion for the Restoration and Strengthening of true faith in Believers.
As ministers of the Gospel, we're motivated by the truth and the content of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Every minister of the Gospel must have a passion for souls," She said. She also asserted that "If you don't have soulwinning and evangelism as the centre of your agenda, then you have missed the central point of Christianity," She said.
The Cell Leaders were literally transported to a higher level of glory and effectiveness in their lives and ministries as they were inspired with God’s Word and motivated to put soulwinning and evangelism at the centre of their agenda in ministry!
