Methodist Church to teach Hindi language and culture
August 20, 2018 4:38 am
In an effort for our Indo Fijians to be well versed with the Christian gospel, the Methodist Church of Fiji will soon start teaching the Hindi language and culture as part of the Davuilevu Theological College school curriculum.
The church has labelled this as a challenge, looking at the number of Indo-Fijians who are members of circuits headed by leaders who are not well versed with Hindu traditions and culture.
Methodist Church Indian Division Divisional Superintend Reverend Immanuel Reuben praised the initiative and says it will benefit many of the Churches’ followers.
“We hope that we will have more hands in helping us once we have most of our minister who came from Theological College are trained with the traditional language and culture because we cannot reach everyone but our ITaukei brothers are situated all over Fiji, in the neighbourhood there are so many Fijians so they can visit and share the gospel with them.”
The Indian Division of the Methodist Church of Fiji has eleven circuits with more than 3000 members.
