More than 50 church workers were ordained pastors or elders last Sunday.
On November 21, Shandong Provincial CC&TSPM ordained ten pastors and four elders in Jiangsu Road Church, Qingdao. Based on 2 Timothy 2:20-26, Rev. Gao Ming, chairman of Shandong TSPM, shared a sermon titled An Instrument for Noble Purposes, saying that the value of an instrument was made up of its quality, what it contained, and what it revealed. The pastor exhorted these new clergy to make prayers for spiritual cleansing, to pursue justice, faith, love, and peace, and to be a noble vessel for God, according to Shandong CC&TSPM.
Another ordination ceremony took place in Guizhou Bible School on the same day, with 19 pastors and 23 elders appointed, alleviating the situation of "the harvest is plentiful and the workers are few" in Guizhou churches, according to CCC&TSPM.
