Forty students graduated from a pastoral volunteer training class in Shaanxi.
Shaanxi CC&TSPM and the Shaanxi Bible School held a thanksgiving service and graduation ceremony of the 31st Pastoral Volunteer Training Course on June 25, according to the CCC&TSPM.
During the service, based on Matthew 28: 16-20, Ma Xiaoqin gave a sermon with the theme "The Great Commission", to encourage the students to be the light and the salt, serve humbly, and strive to finish the Great Commission entrusted by the Lord Jesus.
The graduation ceremony kicked off with the sound of the national anthem. The student representatives shared that the in-depth education of patriotism and the love of religion was of great benefit to the students, and the love between teachers and students, and friendship among classmates, were unforgettable. Then Rev. Wang issued certificates of completion to the trainees, while representatives of the training class presented gifts to the alma mater to express their gratitude.
Rev. Wang Jun, chairman and president of the Shaanxi CC&TSPM, hoped that the trainees could inherit the fine traditions of loving the country and religion, deepen the construction of theological ideology by adhering to the Sinicization of Christianity, and be a good example to promote the development of the church.
