Speaker and participants of the 6th Biennial NBCA Pastors’ Conference) at Sechü Zubza.

Kohima, September 20 (MExN): The Nagamese Baptist Churches Association (NBCA) held its 6th Biennial Pastors’ Conference at the Zion Retreat Center, Sechü Zubza from September 16-17 under the theme “A Vision of the Harvest” (Gal. 6: 9).

Rev. Dr Zelhou Keyho, General Secretary of the Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) and Rev. Dr Meren, Executive Secretary of NBCA spoke at the conference as the keynote speaker while Rev. Dr Lulen Jamir was the resource person.

The conference was organized by the Kohima Nagamese Baptist Pastors Fellowship (KNBPF). Sixty-four delegates registered for the conference.

Reverend Dr. Keyho encouraged pastors to be vocational pastors and not to see it as a profession.

He also encouraged participants to be vocational leaders while stressing that professionals are formed by the head and while vocations are formed by heart and lamented that professionalism kills pastoral ministry.

Reverend Dr. Keyho further warned that when one gets too close to the world, one can become too far too far from God.
Reverend Dr Meren felt that the Nagas have become a status-driven society, which is killing the ministry.

Pointing out that NBCA ministries start at the local level, he said it should not become a program-oriented ministry but be a Holy Spirit-oriented program, which he added is the need of the moment.
