MCS, Methodist Church in Indonesia sign DISCIPLE MOU

Oct 2008    

DISCIPLE Agency (DA) has entered into a partnership with Gereja Methodist Indonesia (GMI – The Methodist Church in Indonesia) Region 2 for the translating of DISCIPLE materials into Bahasa Indonesia.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by Bishop Amat Tumino, Bishop of GMI Region 2, and Bishop Dr Robert Solomon of The Methodist Church in Singapore (MCS) on June 23, 2008.

The signing was done on the sidelines of the Annual Gathering of the Fellowship of Asian Methodist Bishops at the YWCA Fort Canning Lodge.

It was witnessed by DA officials – the Rev Paul Nga, Chairman; the Rev Dr Gregory Goh Nai Lat, Director; Mr Andrew Tay, Policy and Finance; Ms Chng Siew Geok, Assistant Director; and Mrs Julia Chng, Assistant Director.

GMI agrees to faithfully implement the DISCIPLE training design and to provide reports of all training events carried out to DA as required. GMI further agrees to follow the description and the requirements of the marketing and operation of the programme as laid out in the DISCIPLE handbook.

A working committee has been formed in Jakarta to oversee the project.

We praise God for the opportunity to co-labour with others so that many more can “Become Disciples Through Bible Study” as they make God’s Word their “home”.
