Title: WOK MITI (Summary Presentation)
By: Head Bishop Right Reverend Giegere Wenge

This is a new chapter of ELC-PNG; starting 2010 our approach will be a complete Bottom Up than too much Top-Down approach. We have been suffocating our congregations, Parishes, Circuits and Districts by stepping on their heads. Ampo must now be at the bottom to up lift its congregations with both its hands so they will breathe fresh air, see the light from the top position and live to their full potential and move forward… WOK MITI… at the acceptable level.

With that, I, as the Head Bishop of ELC-PNG, the safety valve of all ELC-PNG’s operations in PNG and aboard want to see that all is running effectively to produce results as required by the Church.

WOK MITI must be preached and spread to all regardless of geographical complexity, ethnical differences, cultural barriers and the financial cost… ‘WOK MITI’ must achieve its ultimate goal as stated in Matthew 28:19-20.

At the recent 27th Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Papua New Guinea (ELC-PNG), the synod has accepted new changes to the ELC-PNG constitution and the VISION 2020 to take effect as of this year 2010. Under these new changes, we see several restructure to the church top administration hierarchy. The prime change is the merging amongst the seven (7) ELC-PNG dep

 artments into three main sects. These three sects are the Ministry sect, the Social sect and the Support sect. The roles and responsibility of each of the department will not be changed. The Ministry sect will have the Evangelism and the Ministerial Training department, the Social sect will have the Education, Health and the Lutheran Development Service departments while the Support sect will have the Finance and the Lands/Property department.
