Ivory Coast: Seminar on CE

From June 15 to 21 Rev. Andreas Rudolph, General Secretary of WCEU, visited Ivory Coast and conducted a seminar on CE basics. About 30 participants (mainly pastors) attended the program in Abidjan. It was organized by Madame Clementine Konan N'Goran, the president of Effort Chretien de Côte d'Ivoire, and was conducted in French. Bible Studies were based on Romans 12. In the course of discussing CE A. Rudolph made it clear, that WCEU is not a funding organization, but encourages young people to serve Jesus Christ and minister in their local churches. It seems necessary to modify the original CE youth ministry for better integration in the African culture, so that also African youth and African churches will benefit from the invigorating effects of CE.
