Ministry Focuses:

1. To be a living light and example of God’s grace through leadership, fellowship, discipleship and relationship.

2. To build a better awareness of multiple faith traditions, and different contemporary justice issues and its relationship with the faith and the bible.

3. To help the future leaders to go beyond their understanding of the bible by developing their critical thinking skills by challenging their ability to analyze and reflect on what they retain.
