ED­U­CA­TION took cen­tre stage at this year’s Easter Con­fer­ence or­gan­ised by Te­hillah Wor­ship Cen­tre In­ter­na­tional (TWCI) held at KwaDlangezwa.

More than 50 saints, dressed in aca­demic at­tire at­tended the church ser­vice which was ad­dressed by the church’s leader Apostle Mbon­geni Shange.

In his ad­dress to the con­fer­ence, Shange said the rea­son be­hind the ex­clu­sive ser­vice was to pro­voke and in­spire Te­hillah’s adu­late ed­u­ca­tion.

‘Apart from praise and wor­ship, we are also here to in­still a love for ed­u­ca­tion from Chris­tians as the Bi­ble says, peo­ple per­ish be­cause of lack of knowl­edge.

‘The time we are liv­ing in re­quires peo­ple of the church who are go­ing to be ex­perts in all fields. This is the only way we can take over ev­ery­thing, as God says it.

‘If we suf­fer from poverty of the mind, we can’t do ev­ery­thing and there­fore we are good for noth­ing,’ he said.

Shar­ing the same plat­form was Pro­fes­sor Ngeni Ntombela, who works for the Univer­sity of North West, who en­cour­aged learn­ers to fo­cus on their stud­ies.

The guest speaker of the day was fa­mous au­thor and pub­lic speaker, Max Moyo, who used the podium to en­cour­age young peo­ple to start writ­ing books.

The ser­vice was cul­mi­nated by a spe­cial prayer by Apostle Shange who blessed ev­ery­one who came to the Easter con­fer­ence.
