The Methodist Church in Fiji and Ro­tuma rep­re­sen­ta­tives with coun­ter­parts from the Cliff Col­lege in Calver Der­byshire, United King­dom, signed a state­ment of in­tent yesterday.

Cliff Col­lege prin­ci­pal Rev­erend Ash­ley Cooper thanked the church for the sign­ing.

He said they were ready to work to­gether with the church in the field of up­grad­ing and train­ing of min­is­ters.

Most of the train­ing will be on­line and the Methodist Church pres­i­dent Rev­erend Epineri Vakade­wavosa said this new part­ner­ship was good for the church.

Cliff Col­lege pro­vides the­o­log­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing with a par­tic­u­lar fo­cus on mis­sion and evan­ge­lism. His­tor­i­cally, Cliff Col­lege was a Methodist Lay Train­ing col­lege.

The col­lege motto “Christ for all – all for Christ” sums this up.

They want to train peo­ple from all walks of life to be more ef­fec­tive Chris­tians, more ef­fec­tive evan­ge­lists and more ef­fec­tive dis­ci­ples of Je­sus Christ.
