Christian Leaders Held Initial Meetings To Go Global
19 May 2010: In attempts to find out the possible formation of Chin Christian network across the globe, Chin Christian leaders of different denominations last Saturday met for the first time inside the country at the Methodist Church in Pin Oo Lwin of May Myo, Burma.
The meeting was attended by a total of 12 Chin Christian leaders from different churches and Christian organisations, according to Chin World Media news.
“I would like to share with you a bit about the possibility of the inception of Global Chin Christian Fellowship. This is the outcome of a discussion we had in Thailand last February this year. In general, we all agree to have a global Chin Christian fellowship and that we will disseminate information in our respective areas and dwelling countries,” One of the convenors, Rev. Thang Tin Sum, addressed the meeting.
Some of the agreements made at the meeting said each leader is to work hard in their respective areas for the development of nationwide Christian fellowship in the country and for the emergence of Global Chin Christian Fellowship in the near future.
The Pin Oo Lwin’s meeting was organised as about 150 Christian leaders across the country attended the 83rd biennial meeting of MCC (Myanmar Council of Churches) held in the beautiful town of May Myo on 12-16 May 2010.
In February 2010, about 50 Chin Christian leaders from both inside and outside Burma met for the first time in Thailand to find out ways of creating Chin Christian network across the globe. Named ‘Chin Christian Leaders’ Consultation’, the meeting made a unanimous agreement on promoting the possible formation of ‘Global Chin Christian Fellowship’.
