A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Methodist Church of Fiji and Rotuma and the International Youth Fellowship from South Korea yesterday.

Methodist Church Communications Secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said the MOU was a first to be signed in working with church youths.

“The MOU will enhance youth programmes within the church, assist in education and help promote culture bonding,” he said.

He stated that the formal agreement was a broad one in the sense that it was designed to create a partnership between the fellowship and the church for the betterment of the youths.

Fellowship General Secretary Kim Jae Hong said he was pleased to be in a country like Fiji where Christianity was widely accepted.

“It’s an honour for us to have this MOU agreement. I know there must be a lot of youths in the church and I hope you can train all the youths to become missionaries,” he said.

“We must make Fijian youths to become missionaries and make them go all around the world and become missionaries there. We have many branches and many programmes to train young people.”

Mr Kim said the MOU would set the ground work for the fellowship to do more work in Fiji.

He also mentioned that he was already in talks with the Ministry of Education to train staff members.

The fellowship was established in 2001 as a worldwide youth organisation and international Non-Governmental Organisation based on a Christian mindset.

Its aim is to raise leaders with a global insight through youth education, activities, and provide realistic solutions to problems in the global village.
