The Church of the Nazarene Trinidad and Tobago District launched its Decentralized Continuing Studies Program (DCSP) for 2012 with a promotional service on May 23 at the St. James Church of the Nazarene.
The congregation was led in worship by Farouk Mohammed Jr., son of DCSP Director Vilma Mohammed. Special greetings were brought by Church of the Nazarene Mesoamerica Regional Education Coordinator Ruben Fernandez and Caribbean Nazarene College DCSP Director Kenneth Sharpe.
A special presentation was made to East Trinidad DCSP Director Katrina Campbell-Self, a dentist and a 2010 graduate of DCSP.
Trinidad and Tobago District Superintendent Victor George challenged the congregation to embrace discipleship through the DCSP. He said Nazarenes needed to be grounded in biblical theology in order to give a reason for our Christian hope in a world in which certainties are being shaken.
A special prayer was said for the Mesoamerica DCSP directors, teachers, and students.
The closing prayer was given by DCSP student Jean Alison Chase-Sealey from Barbados, who was among eight students to graduate with the Certificate in Christian Studies at Caribbean Nazarene College's 2012 Commencement.
