MMND organizes OSL for District, Division Levels
On January 4-31, pastors and leaders from MMND local churches embraced the challenge for an intense discipleship training through the Operation Solid Lives (OSL) Level 1. It is the district's desire for its leaders to be equipped with discipline and be refreshed in their relationship with the Lord before they expedite the OSL program to their local churches. District level OSL was held at Marikina Foursquare Gospel Church.
Of 45 initial registrants, 33 have successfully finished the course. Throughout the duration of the program, among other requirements, they were required to do journaling and sermon note-taking, spend 10 minutes of undistracted prayer and devotion, follow a designed Bible reading plan, and to listen Faithbuilders CDs for quiz and group discussions.
A graduation celebration was held on January 31, the last day of the course. Students participated in games and memory verse recitation. Selected students also gave testimony about their OSL experience.
Expediting the Course
Of the 33 district level graduates, 25 are head pastors. They were then tasked to help their respective divisions in facilitating OSL for the division level. Kapayapaan Division under the leadership of Rev. Berlie Casimero spearheaded the OSL in the division on February 1 to March 1, held at the First Adonai Foursquare Gospel Church and has produced 43 graduates. Kagalakan Division under Rev. Edmon Falcunit immediately followed. It was held on February 22 to March 22 at Maranatha Foursquare Gospel Church with 29 graduates.
