The Evangelical Church of Papua New Guinea (ELCPNG) in Port Moresby yesterday launched the project for the construction of a new Pastors house worth K67,000 raised by the church members and from donations from the Eliseo Group of Companies and the Member for Koroba Lake Kopiago, William Bando and a representative from the Ministry of Community Development and Religion.
Chairman of the ECP Church Gerehu, Kayama Sinba stated that if it were not for the prayers and assistance of these stakeholders, this ground- breaking ceremony would not have eventuated.
Sinba said since the church was built and established in 1986, there had been no developments made on the church grounds up until now due to funding.
“I want to thank all that have gathered together today to support us and hope that God will bless us more to complete all projects,” Sinba said.
He added that they are planning on expanding more into the vacant Church land by building more facilities to cater for their Christian Education classes that they host for the children.
ELCPNG National President, Hengebe Himugu thanked all stakeholders including the Ministry of Community Development and Religion for their support in their assistance to the construction of the Pastor’s house and look forward to working alongside the Ministry for future projects.
