For many years the departments and ministries of the church functioned autonomously. In 2015 the South Pacific restructured portfolios and clustered personnel together to establish the Discipleship Ministries Team. The result has been greater synergy and collaboration.
We work in harmony with the global church and South Pacific Division emphasis to develop and promote an integrated vision of ministry with discipleship at its centre. Regardless of how Unions, Conferences and Missions may be structured our goal is to support and enhance their impact on the local church and its members. Our specialists apply discipleship principles to the traditional departmental portfolios which cater to various ages, stages and demographics within the church. While we continue to provide resources, training and programs our emphasis is on thought leadership and leadership development throughout the South Pacific Division.
