'... I will not make the same mistake again '
Cephas - Pastoring a partner church
"God help me, I will not make the same mistake again! I will prepare my preaching carefully to honor the church of Christ. Cephas leads a mostly illiterate church. He did not see the need to carefully prepare his sermons because he said "they are not able to detect if I have missed up something" He repented in front of his leadership team. Today he has adopted a new method, he uses face-to-face meetings to teach the basics of the Christian faith to each member of his church.
