A new Spirit, a new Perspective & a new Generation
with Aung Mang & CK Hrang Tiam,
Principal of MEGST (Myanmar Evangelical Graduate School of Theology)
Your monthly sponsorship of an emerging leader - a student - makes an immediate and critical difference. We'd love to tell you more at a special event - please join us!
And we'd also like to introduce you to our friend and partner in ministry - CK Hrang Tiam - who will share with us about the longer term difference for God's Kingdom that your sponsorship of a student makes, and the new opportunities for ministry in the new Myanmar.
Thursday 3 May 6.30pm
Greenlane Christian Centre, 17 Marewa Road, Greenlane, Auckland
Please feel free to bring your friends - especially those who're interested in sponsoring an emerging young leader.
A light meal & drinks will be served.
RSVP for catering: firstname.lastname@example.org OR 09 376 5190
Dr Aung Mang is the Founder and Chair of MEGST and known by many of LeaDev-Langham’s friends.
Dr CK Hrang Tiam is the Principal of MEGST. He studied in India for a Bible teaching ministry, including attaining an MTh from SAIACS, Bangalore. In 1999, he became the first full time faculty member to join Aung at MEGST. He has since completed a PhD (AGST, Philippines). In addition to teaching, CK has served MEGST as Dean of Students, Dean Post Graduate Studies, Academic Dean, and now, since June 2017, as Principal. As a younger leader CK is passionate about the Gospel going out into the new Myanmar, and has a clear is vision for the key role MEGST plays in this: to produce future leaders who are deeply rooted in God’s word who also diligently preach and teach the word of God to others.
More on how emerging leaders are equipped for a life in ministry through sponsorships.
A (very) brief background to Myanmar.
The video below was created by our network partners from Australia some time ago, when CK Hrang Tiam was a teacher at MEGST.

Live, Listen, Tell: The Art of Preaching, by Geoff NewWritten principally for preachers and church leaders in the Majority World where English is not the first language, Live, Listen, Tell: The Art of Preaching is an easy read but challenging too. While written for a different context - it nevertheless "reads" well in the Kiwi setting. The prayer disciplines described in the book are enjoying increasing use in NZ and so it provides guidance in that with sermon writing in view.
Geoff New is the Dean of Studies at the Knox Centre for Ministry and Leadership, and the co-ordinator of kiwi-made preaching an initiative of Langham Partnership New Zealand.

Operation World “Leadership development is the crucial bottleneck to Church growth. There is a worldwide lack of men and women truly called of God and deeply taught in the Scriptures to lead the churches … Those who accurately and effectively expound the Scriptures are few, especially in areas where the churches are growing rapidly.” Operation World 2010 p17
