The Mongolia Mission Holds Successful Stewardship Seminar

The Mongolia Mission (President Han SeokHee) successfully held the 2023 Stewardship Seminar (Director: Kim YoungSik) at Bayangher Church in the Mongolian Mission headquarters building, March 24-26, 2023. The Stewardship Seminar, one of the important annual events of Mongolia Mission, has been held only online for the past three years due to the influence of Covid-19, but this year, it was designed with two tracks, online and onsite, and it attracted wide interest, hot enthusiasm, and high participation from church members.

President Han SeokHee, who attended the first day’s plenary session, said in his opening speech, “The two pillars that must be established in the personal faith and life as a Seventh-day Adventist church member are spiritual revival and a soul-winning mission spirit.”

In other words, spiritual revival must include a spirit of stewardship and soul-winning as its mission spirit. In fact, these two are not only the pillars that support personal faith and church, but also the driving force behind growth like two wings promoting the gospel work to balance a healthy faithful life.

Pastor Kim NakHyung, who was invited as a speaker, firmly armed the hearts of participants with a total of four lively lectures throughout the weekend under the general theme of “God First!” Pastor Kim appealed to the attendees for four meanings of the word Steward: “It is a man who manages, represents, works, and serves what the owner has entrusted,” exhorting those present to be good servants and stewards who faithfully manage their lives, health, time, talent, wealth, gospel, home and environment as God’s representatives.

He explained in detail the types and kinds of offerings of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the principles of offering and donation life, and the meaning and differences between tithe and integrated offering systems, and emphasized the importance of tithe, a modern version of the fruit of good and evil in the garden of Eden. In his series, he emphasized “God is stronger than Corona virus.” Tithe is holy, distinguished by God as belonging to God. Therefore, the faithful steward must set aside tithe from the income and give it to God honestly.

Elder Kim YoungSik, the Mongolia Mission’s Stewardship director, said, “Through this seminar held under the theme of ‘God First!’ participants realized that the plus commitment from church members brings God’s abundant multiplication blessing.” He added, “The biggest fruit of this seminar is that Mongolian church members have two wings, a steward wing and mission wing, and they are determined to live as good and faithful servants according to the will of the Lord.”

The Mongolia Mission’s Stewardship department will invite Pr. Kim NakHyung once again as a speaker during the Summer Revival Camp Meeting on July 20-23, 2023, this year to continue to emphasize the hands-on stewardship ministry and activity through the second stewardship rally and Golden Bell event.

In Matthew 25:23, the master replied, “Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!”
