On Sunday 12 November 2017, Bishop T. Stephens held the last George Bishop Area

coordinators’ meeting for his group. The Bishop opened with a prayer, welcomed all present and went through the minutes of the previous meeting before continuing with the agenda.

Later on the Apostle J. Cronje joined the group for the first time, after the restructuring of the area and asked the coordinators to help him plan “the way forward” for this vast area that includes the Langkloof and Beaufort West districts, as far as Fraserburg, some 340 km from George. The Apostle requested that they equip and empower more brothers and sisters to perform leadership roles for the different portfolios (music, young people’s leaders, Sunday school, MIS, etc.) on a regional and congregational level.

After enjoying some refreshments, the Apostle closed the meeting with a prayer.
