In response to the exhortation of the Church Administration to heed God’s call of accepting duties in the Church, more brethren in the Ecclesiastical District of Northern Europe underwent the prescribed seminars and trainings and were sworn in to various Church offices during a special gathering on October 29, 2021. The brethren gathered virtually for the occasion.
From Vienna, Austria, Brother Jake Edic, assistant district supervising minister, officiated at the gathering. Through a Bible-based lesson, he exhorted the new Church officers of how important it is to love the brethren and to always fulfill their duties wholeheartedly. After his homily, Brother Roland Pineda, minister of the gospel, led the oath-taking.
Reena Alimboyuguen, who took oath as the Binhi president of the Local Congregation of Vienna West, Austria, said, “What motivated me to accept this Church duty is for me to help in further strengthening the bond among the Binhi members.”
With the new officers, the ecclesiastical district’s strength has been bolstered to further care for the brethren and guide them to continue receiving God’s blessings.
“I am very happy and honored to be part of this event and it inspired me. I will fulfill it [my office] with all my heart and utmost care to help the Church Administration,” said Ryan-Vic Yamba, one of the newly-sworn in officers.
