A training program for the elite church members of the local Seventh-day Adventist church in evangelizing the elite people of Metro Manila
Pasay Seventh-day Adventist Church (PAC) is a church whose purpose is to accomplish the Great Commission of Jesus, specifically to the people of Metro Manila, including the elite. Most of the PAC members are elite people. However , they do not know how to evangelize their fellow elite countrymen , because they have never been trained to do so . The purpose of this study is to make a training program for the Metro Manila elite SDA church members so they may learn how to evangelize their elite society. Biblical principles and theological reasons for training are established. The three theological reasons for training are set in motion: the Great Commission of Jesus, the great mission of the church, and the great harvest of the elite. Jesus' training model of selection, instruction, commission, supervision, and multiplication is implemented. The training program, which was designed, was implemented at PAC. It covered objectives, participants, curriculum, schedule, and budget. The result of the evaluation of the training program was shared and suggestions were made as to how to improve it. From the project, the derived suggestions correspond to an acronym, a word spelling "ELITE." "E" Elite members of a local church need to be selected, "L"Lessons need to be developed and presented, "I"- Investiture ceremonies need to be conducted, "T"- Teamwork of trainees need to be supervised, "E"- Excellent forum needs to be organized. The conclusion is that a training program is very important for the elite SDA local church members to help them fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus, specifically, to evangelize the elite people.
