Leadership Summit 2016

As part of our vision of strengthening and developing healthy relationships and healthy ministries by partnering and networking with local leadeship, the Northwest Samoan Section held their first ever Leadership Summit on September 3, 2016 sponsored by the Fusion Youth Ministry.

The theme of the summit was "Together we are Stronger" based on Ecclesiastes 4:9-12. Our keynote speaker was pastor Josh McCann from Columbia Heights Assembly in Longview, Washington. Pastor Josh is no stranger to our NW Samoan Section as he was our guest speaker at one of our Fusion Youth Camps and has also spoken at a few of our local church sponsored youth events. Pastor Josh brought a timely message which challenged and inspired leaders who were able to attend the event.

Aside from the two main sessions with Pastor Josh, participants also had the option of choosing two out of four break out sessions:
  1. Equipping the Next Generation: Fala Tofaeono
  2. Next Man Up: Iapesa & Cynthia Paaga
  3. Measuring Success In Ministry: Josh McCann
  4. Personal Mission: Malaelupe Jr Samifua
Praise and worship was led by Tua Savini and our combined North Area worship team. The event began at 9 am and ended a little after 2 pm.
