World Ambassadors for Social Transformation

Youth on US mission

Date August 10, 2005 Compliments of the Barbados Nation News


EIGHT YOUNG CHRISTIANS will be winging their way to New Jersey, United States, later today, to participate in the World Ambassadors for Social Transformation programme. Chairman of Jesus Week, Patrick Tannis, said the exchange programme was "a progressive step as Government and the church begin to work more closely together to fulfil a mandate of total development of the country's citizens".

He was speaking during a Press conference at Parliament Buildings yesterday.

The eight are Myles Phillips, Jalissa Williams, Crystal Ashby, Riechell Worrell, Rossann Bovell, Michelle Smart, Candice King and Kemar Whitehall. Grace Gill and Kim Jones will be the chaperones.

"The Jesus Week initiative, partnering with the Minister of Social Transformation Hamilton Lashley, has come up with a project to create the World Ambassadors for Social Transformation. This is a project which embraces the youth and vigour of the teenagers of the world.

On the premise that Jesus Christ was the world's first minister of social transformation, the organisers of the programme have launched out with the ideals of faith, courage and goodwill that would be passed on to young people," Patrick Tannis said.

He said it was hoped the programme would not only bring the church and state closer together, but other nations and other churches from around the world.

He said as the programme progressed, Barbados would emerge as a leading nation in the area of diplomacy and youth commitment to good ideals and wholesome values.

Lashley described the programme as a wonderful concept since it would be making a "gateway" for other participants.

He added that every church in the island was part of the Ministry of Social Transformation and espoused the philosophy, programme and the fundamental policies of social transformation.

"Our aim is to partner with the churches in Barbados to bring about social transformation. Barbados could never achieve genuine social transformation without a distinct relationship with Jesus Christ.

"It is totally impossible. Without Christ, Barbados would only achieve material advancement," Lashley said.

During their two-week stay in the United States, the eight participants will visit places such as the United Nations, New York Stock Exchange, NBC Studios and the Schomburg Centre for Research.

AFRICA APPEAL

"I will give you my message in the form of a vision.

Write it clearly enough to be read at a glance. At the time I have decided, my words will come true."

Habakkuk 2: 2-3

The 10/40 Window confronts us with several important considerations:

first, the historical and biblical significance;
second, the least evangelized countries with 6,000 unreached people groups;
third, the large number of poor and diseased;
fourth, the least evangelized mega-cities;
sixth, the dominance of three religions;
seventh, the strongholds of Satan within ‘The 10/40 Window’.

"The poor are the lost, and the lost are the poor."


Missions is the heartbeat of God

It is our urgent call to provide sponsorship for not only the orphans but also to support and empower the body of Christ and send them out for the Great Commission.

This will involve the sponsorship of African pastors being trained at the Assemblies of God School of Theology in Malawi.

"So we follow the chart of God’s Word, propelled by the wind of the Spirit, and stay the course in our worldwide mission." - L. John Bueno -

GospelFest

Barbados Gospelfest was established in 1993 by the Barbados Tourist Board (BTB). The festival was the brainchild of the then Minister of Tourism Wes Hall, now Rev. Wes Hall. In 1995 the responsibility for the production of the festival was passed on to the Gospelfest Organising Committee made up of persons from the Christian community, chaired by Barbadian event manager Adrian Agard.
