Impur, March 3 (MExN):  A contextual training under the theme "Rooted in the Word" (Col. 2:7) was organised by the Ao Baptist Arogo Mungdang (ABAM) Youth Ministry at Jubilee Memorial Centre, Kohima, from February 27-29.

A total of 95 Associate Pastor Youth attended the training, which covered a wide range of challenges and issues presented by technological progress and its impact on Church workers, congregation, and spirituality.

The modern technological pluralistic wave has already taken a grip on the Youths, and the nominalism in the faith has become very alarming, ABAM Executive Secretary, Rev Dr Mar Pongener, informed in a press release.

To adapt to the wave while maintaining strict Christian discipline has become the real challenge, it said. 

Accordingly, to achieve a balanced life, the training was organised covering topics such as Youth Pastor in an AI culture, Developing Emotional Quotient and Spiritual Quotient principles in Biblical Leadership, it added. 

The attendees were also imparted training on balancing entertainment and  spirituality, navigating social media and technology in Youth Ministry.

The youth pastors also revisited as well as envisioned the future of ABAM Youth Ministry.

Rev Sentisashi Pastor KABA; Rev N Suhuto Chishi, Youth Secretary, NBCC; Toshi Sanglir, Secretary, ABAM YM; and Coordinator, ABAM YM were the resource persons of the training.

“As we minister in the context of such a pluralistic wave, we look forward to seeing leaders who would come up with realistic ideologies and provide apt leadership,” the ABAM release added.
