|Pastor Callie Rossouw leads a session|
The purpose of the Namibia Grace Conference is to encourage pastors and elders in their work . This year about 25 people met together for this three day conference .
Although we prefer a Reformed Baptist ecclesiology , we are not sectarian and welcome other churches to participate in, and profit from this conference .
This year our theme was “ Preaching – our principal work “.
Pastor Ronald Kalifungwa was our principal speaker and Pastors Callie Rossouw (Walvis Bay Baptist Church) and Francois Koch (Swakopmund Baptist Church) each led one session .
Topics covered were :
• Spirit empowered Preaching
• Preaching Christ – the heart of the Gospel Ministry
• Preaching Christ from the Old Testament
• The Elements of Expository Preaching
• Pastoral Preaching – preaching that establishes the church
• Evangelistic Preaching – the importance of preaching for a verdict
|Happy fellowship between sessions|
The conference was well received , and we believe that our goal was reached . Our men were sent home satisfied and encouraged . Once again we thank God for the ladies of Eastside Baptist Church who so graciously and willingly served us in providing us with hospitality and good food.

It was resolved at this conference that next year (i.e. 2012 D.V.) we should endeavour to bring our wives with us. This might mean that we would focus on the life of the pastoral family in that conference. Thank you for praying with us. We believe that our prayers for this conference were answered.
