|The 40th Session of the Trinity Annual Conference (TRAC) was successfully held from 5th till 7th December, 2015 at the Port Dickson Methodist Centre, Port Dickson Negeri Sembilan. A total of 198 ministerial and lay delegates as well as some observers attended the three-day conference. Bishop Dr Ong Hwai Teik and wife, Mrs. Ong Mun Kean graced the occasion. Bishop Dr Ong chaired when the Presidential Address was delivered by the TRAC President, Rev. Dr. T. Jeyakumar on 6th December, 2015 and preached at the Ordination Service on 7th December, 2015. Four elders were ordained, namely Rev Lim Chaw Leong, Rev Lucy Lee Siew Sieng, Rev Shearn Sya Seng Shen and Rev Ronald Yap Quan Nyian. One deacon, namely Rev S. Gauri a/p Supramaniam was ordained. 14 new local preachers were recognised out of which seven were from Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC).
TRAC saw four out of their six preaching points constituted as Local Conferences in 2015, namely Nusajaya Methodist Church in Johor Baru, Living Faith Methodist Church in Ipoh, Living Stone Methodist Church in Kota Damansara, Selangor, Living Hope Methodist Church in Bukit Rimau, Selangor.
TRAC also saw the retirement of two of her pastors, Rev Bernard Yogaraj and Rev Peggy Seow. We praise and thank the Lord that both pastors will continue to serve the Lord in their various areas of ministry even during their retirement.
TRAC’s Essentials continue to be :
• Lifelong Discipleship (Following Christ, Becoming like Christ)
• Wholesome Families (Growing Strong Families for Christ)
• A Voice to Our Nation (Seeking Our Nation’s Welfare in Christ)
• A Vision for the Word (Embracing Local and Global Mission for Christ)
In 2016 TRAC will be focusing on the third essential – A Voice to Our Nation.
