全砂卫理公会第三届三天两夜的姐妹领袖训练会于2019年3月22日在美里皇宫酒店拉开序幕。有222位来自全砂各地十个教区的姐妹相聚受训只为要做基督精兵。年会会长池金代牧师提醒姐妹们记得在成为好领袖之前需要先学习做主门徒。
  美里教区陈祖义教区长在开幕时以耶稣为门徒洗脚为例。耶稣设立了一个仆人领袖的模式和榜样:
1.为门徒洗脚,大的服事小,展现属灵领袖的风范。
2.积极毫无埋怨 ,耶稣没埋怨且积极地谦卑服侍。
仆人属灵领袖是越高位越要谦卑,预备好承担更大的责任。
【太25:40】王回答他们说:‘我实在告诉你们,这些事你们做在我弟兄中一个最小的身上,就是做在我身上了。’不要小看任何的服事,撇弃功利主义,拾起谦卑事主之心。
        领袖不是沉浸在事工里,而是要更专注在属灵的质素里:有读经,祷告,禁食。常常以上帝的话反省更新。
