The COCIN President, Rev. Dr. Dachollom Datiri, has called on members of the Church to rise up to the challenge of sponsoring missionaries home and abroad.
He made the call recently at the COCIN headquarters Church in Jos while commissioning three missionaries to Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to pioneer the mission work in these East African countries.
According to the President, this is the second time the Church is sending missionaries to other countries and the Church spends over N9 million every year on overseas missions apart from the United Kingdom where they spends about N11 million.
He further called on the new missionaries to be true ambassadors of the Church and to be committed to the work in their respective countries of assignment.
The COCIN Vice President, Rev. Dr. Obed Dashan, who gave the message during the service, stressed the importance of the Holy Spirit in the work of missions.
According to him, the Holy Spirit is the one that leads people who are being commission into missions.
“When the Holy Spirit is present in worship, there will be no evil politics except the politics that convicts sinners”.
The missionaries that were commission alongside their families were Rev Jerry Audu (Kenya), Rev. Solomon Dawer Dabang (Tanzania) and Rev Dung John Dayuru (Uganda).
There were goodwill messages from the Chairman COCIN Board of Trustees, Rev. Dr. Alexander Lar and the CAN Chairman Plateau State Rev. Dr. Soja Bewarang.
