This training session took place at Christian village in Kumasi, Ghana from, November 11th to 13th, 2019. During this meeting, many topics were developed and oriented the participants towards the awareness of the mission the Lord entrusted them. Several facilitators instructed the delegates on the methods of communication that will allow them to be good leaders and especially to take an active part in the process of spreading the Good News of the kingdom of Heaven.

For Pastor Manu, Treasurer of the Division, such meetings should be multiplied in our Division territory to enable our communicators to be well equipped to participate in the advancement of the work of God. He also insisted that as communicator, one must know what to communicate, when and how you do it without ignoring the circumstances. To communicate, you need two parts, the messenger and the one who receives the message. In the Christian context, this message must be clear, precise, and faithfully transmitted.

According to Pastor Williams Costa, the General Conference Communication Director, this training was a great privilege for us all, both the trainers and the trainees. All came to learn and share the information received. "The participants must understand the purpose of this meeting, the role it plays in the life of a communication director within a church, understand the different fields of communication to better serve their churches and support the mission of the church. To achieve all this, one must be trained."
