Good news! The Ambassadors Programme for 2013 will now commence 14 February, 2013, where the new batch of Ambassadors will begin their one year programme at the 2013 Opening and Graduation Ceremony of the School of Ministry and Mission. The Ambassadors will then join the Diocesan Vocation Camp in Tawau straight away from 15th to 17th of February. Some have asked if the Ambassadors Programme only accept diploma holders and above. We encourage churches to send in application for those who do not have at least diploma and will consider each application with the pastor or priest in-charge recommendation.
Do let us know by sending in email or by making use of the application above – print out, fill up and send to us! Out of 7 who have completed or are completing the programme, we have 4 found their calling in life and serving in various positions in the Diocese, and 3 entering their final and third cycle.
The Ambassadors are currently posted to different churches for their ten weeks ministry exposure. Chew (first from left) is now with the Christ the King, while Phoebe and Shyron (third and second from the right) are now at the Logos Anglican Church Putatan. Lawrence and Danilo (second and third from left ) have graduated and found their new stage of life at the All Saints Cathedral and Diocese office respectively.Irene has found her calling elsewhere and have since moved on.
Each and every one of them has been a great blessings to the church. So far, after the completion of the first batch of Ambassadors, we have seen four young adults (100% from the first batch), all graduates from their tertiary educations, found their calling in life and have committed to various ministries within the diocese.
It is the pleasure of the Training Committee to report that the first batch of Ambassadors under the Ambassadors Program has completed their third and final cycle of training and practical/mission posting. Lawrence Liau and Danilo have both returned from Rangsit, Thailand and Petaling Jaya, Selangor after nearly two months of practical ministry and mission involvement. Both of them have gone through two other 6-weeks in-house training and 10-weeks posting prior to this. The other Ambassadors – Phoebe Tung, Irene Panjang, Chew and Shyron are the second batch and they have also just completed their first mission/church posting. Phoebe and Irene had a fruitful time at Mauritius, joining the Diocesan Mission Team and the local the Anglican churches to minister and evangelize to the island country. They later joined Lawrence and Danilo in Faith Christian Centre for a period of time, helping with various ministries. Meanwhile, Chew and Shyron had the opportunity to work in the context of St. Patrick’s Church, Tawau, where they were also helping in the Diocesan English Youth Camp. We also praise God for the other two Ambassadors – Jovina Ng and Samentha Chai, who have since found their calling in music and teaching ministries.
