Eleven Methodist Church ministers were ordained last night with the defining message to spread the Word of God rather than make a name for themselves.

The Methodist Church of Fiji and Rotuma president, Reverend Tevita Nawadra ordained the ministers at the Centenary Methodist Church in Suva.

“Christ’s name should be known to every place you have been called to ministers,” Reverend Nawadra said.

“Sometimes in places we have been called to serve we tend to forget the main purpose of being sent there, we just try to make a name for ourselves,” he said.

Reverend Nawadra said in some cases ministers had requested that their term be extended in various places they served.

“Wherever you have been sent to serve, it is God’s calling and when the time comes for you to leave, it is also God’s calling,” he said.

Reverend Nawadra said the world needed peace-builders.

“We are living in an era where we come across a lot of challenges and sometimes our faith is tested, we should remain firm in the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Every where you will serve, it comes with good and bad times. Some might end sleeping in shacks, this is all part of ministering the Gospel,” he said.

Reverend Nawadra advised the ordained ministers it was through God’s love that would enable them to spread the Gospel to the world.
