serving the whole person

The Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus South Central Synod, Hossana Installed it’s newly elected leaders on June 18, 2017. The installation ceremony took place during Sunday worship service at Wass Gebeta Mekane Yesus congregation west of Hossana town.

scsleadersRev. Yonas Yigezu, President of the Church with other four pastors led the installation ceremony and Rev. Dr. Kiros Lakew, Vise-President of the Church and President of Addis Ababa Synod shared the Word of God.  

Dr. Kiros shared from Galatians 5:16-23 “So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”

The fruit of the Spirit is measured through the Bible. Organizing a conference, performing signs and wonders do not make us inherit the Kingdome of God. However, our life showing the fruit of the Spirit and personal time we spend with Jesus Christ is the way to Heaven.”  said Rev. Dr. Kiros preaching.

It was the 4th convention of South Central Synod which re-elected Mr. Alemu Tumiso to lead the Synod for the coming four years. The convention also elected Evangelist Abnet Haile as Vice-President and Evangelist Kasu Abebe as Treasurer.

Members of Wass Gebeta Mekane Yesus Congregation and other invited guests from Hossana town celebrated the installation and prayed for these newly elected leaders as they begin their work.
