The Methodist Church in Fiji plans to better the education standards of its ministers and church leaders.

Methodist Church general secretary Reverend Epineri Vakadewavosa said: “We are seeking assistance from our overseas counterparts and we are very much on the go to encouraging training and education for our ministers and leaders for enhancement of the church.”

He said their ministers and church leaders required an education to help lead their flock.

“The importance of setting out a scholarship trust fund is to enable leaders to lead while the flocks follow and not the other way around where leaders are at the back and flocks leading the way,” he said.

“We are trying to improve ourselves in this area that is why we have come up with this new – scholarship trust fund for our ministers and leaders as part of our Lako Yani Vou.”
