Personal Ministries is a facet of the church whose origin can be traced to the beginning of Seventh-day Adventist® history in the 1860s. It endeavors to inspire, motivate, equip, train, and mobilize all members for dynamic Christian service with the conviction that “The church of Christ is organized for service” (Ministry of Healing, p. 148) and “Every son and daughter of God is called to be a missionary; we are called to the service of God and our fellow men” (The Ministry of Healing, p. 395).
The Personal Ministries Department has launched a Bellville Church Bible School, which is a branch of, and works in partnership with, the Voice of Prophecy (VOP) Bible Correspondence School, based in Cape Town and also affiliated with the VOP Headquarters in the USA.
The Goals Are: 1. To connect people with Jesus and help them become His disciples. 2. To acquaint people with an in-depth understanding of the Bible and the Seventh-day Adventist message. 3. To show people how the Bible meets their daily needs. 4. To prepare a community for evangelistic reaping meetings.
The Aim is to reach as many church members as possible. Our district target for VOP is 65. If you haven't registered yet, please speak to Lynn Moyo (Personal Ministries Leader).
If you have shown interest but have not yet returned your VOP card, then you are kindly reminded to please hand them back to Lynn, in order for you to receive your first set of lessons.
These Bible Guides/Lessons will help you find the answers to your questions and bring new meaning and purpose to your life. Each Guide is absolutely free for you to study in the privacy of your own home. Included with each Guide is an Answer Sheet for you to fill out and to be handed back to Lynn, who is also the coordinator for the Bellville Bible School. It will be returned to you along with your next set of Bible Guides.
The Bible School will have its first graduation in June. Look out for more information in this regard.
