Alliance Leaders Play Key Roles in Evangelism Congress

Editor’s note: The Thailand Congress on Evangelism exists to glorify God by facilitating the establishment of a viable and indigenous church among the peoples of Thailand that impacts the world. During its recent gathering, Thai church leaders were inspired and equipped to be more effective in evangelism and church planting throughout the country’s 76 provinces.

Earlier this month 3,000-4,000 Protestant church leaders, laypeople, and missionaries gathered from all over Thailand to consider how they can work together more effectively to see the Great Commission completed in Thailand. The Seventh Thailand Congress on Evangelism drew people from the three main bodies of the Protestant church in Thailand—the Church of Christ in Thailand, The Thailand Baptist Convention, and the Evangelical Fellowship of Thailand—as well as many Alliance missionaries, church leaders, and laypeople.

Two C&MA Bangkok church pastors and leaders, Ajarn Timothy Jeng and Ajarn Nok Yutasak, played key roles in this event and also spoke at the conference. An exhibition hall displayed the church growth and evangelistic tools utilized by various ministries. “These are significant events that galvanize the churches and spur them on,” says Richard Herring, C&MA regional director for Asia Pacific.

Those in attendance affirmed their vision to see a church established in every district of Thailand and for every village to have an opportunity to hear the gospel by the end of next year. Alliance missionaries are helping to see these goals achieved in the provinces of Nong Khai, Sakorn Nakon, Nakorn Panom, Surin, Bangkok, Mahachai, and Phuket. 

The last event of this nature occurred in 2004, which coincided with the 175th anniversary of the establishment of the Protestant Church in Thailand.

What You Can Do

Praise God for the spirit of unity that exists among the various segments of the evangelical church in Thailand. Pray that the Alliance mission and the C&MA national church, the Gospel Church of Thailand, will be used by God to impact the country for His Kingdom.

Pray also that the church will continue to grow in becoming self-supporting, self-propagating, and self-governing and that God’s Spirit will draw men, women, and children to Himself in greater ways in the days ahead.
