Equipping the church in South-East Asia
During March, Pastor Richard Haar (ALC’s Lecturer in Systematics and Pastoral Theology) led a two-part webinar on 'Exploring the message of Christian hope' at the request of the newly opened Lutheran Study Centre (LSC) in Siantar in Northern Sumatra, Indonesia. Organised by Indonesian Pastor Dedi Pardosi, who is the energetic and enthusiastic coordinator of LSC, this webinar was held over two weeks and attended by approximately 70 participants. The feedback from participants indicated that they found the webinar both engaging and very helpful. This is an example of how ALC is helping to equip and support the pastors and leaders of our sister Lutheran churches across South-East Asia in partnership with LCA International Mission.
