On February 5, 2017, Wuxi Church held a one-day worship service to support the "Good Shepherd Campaign" that aims to send hundreds of pastors to preach sermons in local churches of Jiangsu Province. Rev. Gu Oufen from Jiangyin sent by the city's CCC&TSPM shared the message on this topic.
Jiangsu CCC & TSPM marks the second Sunday after the Spring Festival as the day when all the offerings are used for theological education. The day falls on February 5 for this year.On this day, Zhongshanlu Church of Wuxi also delivered the purpose and significance of the campaign in the four services.
It was said that last year more than 200 pastors were sent to about 200 local churches to give sermons in the whole province. Pastors from Nanjing, Taizhou and Jiangsu Theological Seminary went to churches and their campuses in Changzhou, Zhangjiagang, Suzhou and Taizhou, etc.
The campaign was initiated by the provincial CCC & TSPM in 2014, aiming at cultivating preachers and raising money to strengthen the theological construction of Jiangsu by coordinating the communication and interaction among all the churches in Jiangsu.
