          • A special laypeople seminar during the COVID era

            There is something special about the 617th House Church Seminar for laypeople. Due to COVID-19, we were forced to cancel the seminar scheduled for April, and there were requests for it to be held online. However, I was hesitant to do something that had never been done before and also had concerns for its effectiveness, but decided to obey, and not limit God to my standards.
            With only about a month to go, spots for all 30 participants filled up in less than 30 minutes and the application closed with 39 participants from 14 churches.
            With so little time left, we had to quickly assign team leaders for the seminar preparation and although the seminar was held online, we had various churches collaborate with us in providing accommodation, mokjang visits, catering, etc.
            Churches from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and New Zealand happily agreed to help, so although Sydney Crystal Church was the host of the seminar, we were co-hosting with churches from five different regions. As we prepared for the seminar in such a short period of time, there were difficult problems we had to overcome and we faced various spiritual battles. However, we had confidence we were being attacked because we were doing something that pleased God and our church members overcame this in various ways through online special prayer service, 123 prayer, etc.
            The first thing that makes the seminar special is that despite the seminar being held in new ways due to COVID-19, it has paved ways for the House Church to expand in Oceania. Second is that we were able to share the joy of serving together, as various churches got involved. Thirdly, as numerous churches in Oceania helped us, they gained the experience they needed to host a seminar in the future.
            I would like to express my gratitude to the 39 participants, team leaders, those giving testimonies, mokjangs, and all the churches in five different regions that have helped us.

            This week’s message
            I would like to thank everyone that has been involved in helping with the seminar. I look forward to seeing biblical churches being beautifully established through the 39 participants from the 14 churches.
