Posted by Sophia Akouo, 5 Dec 2016

At the recent JAEC conference, Lee Gatiss showed us from 2 Timothy 2 about gospel succession, and how we need be strong, ensuring that we are training up reliable people who can train others.

Revd Dr Lee Gatiss, Director of Church Society, explained that these must be faithful people, trustworthy, with a firm grasp of the gospel, as well as able to teach others. Moreover, we were challenged to suffer and persevere in ministry for the sake of the kingdom, not giving up, because God is faithful and his word unstoppable.

Lee’s talk is a useful reminder about the importance of training up others to be teachers of the word.
