Our church is called Pentecostal Assemblies of God, Tanzania, Mabatini Local Church. This local church started in 1987 with three members with Pastor Williams Bungulwa. Up to date the church is serving more than 400 members both adults and children included. The Senior Pastor is Rev. William Bungulwa.
The church is located on Mabatini Kleruui street, Nyamagana District Mwanza City two kilometres from Mwanza city.
The need of the training is to empower our church leaders in the local church for them to lead and manage well the people God has entrusted to them. Leadership is verbally spoken but in reality people appointed to lead God's people do not have any skills of leadership and ability to implement its duties accordingly. People rely on the Holy Spirit and prayers alone to do everything for them; being filled with the Holy Spirit and praying to God may not be enough but we have to add some leadership skills that will help us serve God's people.
This has become a problem to many churches in the world including Africa, especially in our country Tanzania. We have people given by God but leading them in a way they should go has become difficult to most of us called leaders. With LEAD LIKE JESUS in Tanzania, it will transform many Christian leaders.
People are selected, appointed or elected to lead others but having no leadership ability depending on the Holy Spirit alone. Just because he/she is saved that he/she can do anything in church. Leadership needs a person to be prepared, taught, mentored and coached. The Holy Spirit is our partner to depend on in our spiritual leadership. He also uses us to lead well depending on what knowledge we possess. The need of the LLJ Encounter Meeting is to gain that knowledge to know how we can serve God's people in a godly manner, to increase our capacity and knowledge. After I have seen you on the internet and gotten interested in the Work of God you're doing, I saw LLJ as a vessel of equipping Christian leaders of this generation to serve God's people. That is why PENTECOSTAL ASSEMBLIES OF GOD TANZANIA MABATINI CHURCH MWANZA want to partner with you to help leaders in our local church and others to promote a good Christian leadership style in our churches. I know this will be a good beginning of knowing each other and thereafter start this campaign for God's glory.
