20th October 2009,Methodist HQ, Petaling Jaya : The Methodist Youth Fellowship of Tamil Annual Conference once again proved itself as a LEADERSHIP DEVELOPER when two of its Board Members were elected into the Persaudaraan Belia Methodist Malaysia’s ( PBMM ) Executive Committee at the Annual General Meeting.
Bro. Edwin Selvanesan (TAC MYF President / TMC Banting ) and Bro. Jullian John (TAC MYF Treasurer / TMC Subang Jaya ) were elected
Vice President 1 and Secretary 1 respectively. Rev. Jonathan Jesudas (TAC Youth Director) was also elected as one of the Advisors.
Persaudaraan Belia Methodist Malaysia is the highest body of the Methodist Youth Fellowship of the Methodist Church in Malaysia.
To have two of OUR youths sitting in the Executive Committee of Persaudaraan Belia Methodist Malaysia is something to be proud off.
Bro.Edwin Selvanesan is currently the TAC Methodist Youth Fellowship President. He also serves as the Selangor District Conference Statistician and he’s also the Membership Chairman of TMC Banting. Being actively involved in Youth Ministry and also Music & Worship Ministry, Edwin believes that youths are not only leaders of tomorrow but they are also LEADERS OF TODAY !.
Bro. Jullian John is currently the TAC Methodist Youth Fellowship Treasurer, TAC Selangor District Methodist Youth Fellowship President, TAC Selangor District Conference Secretary and also TMC Subang Jaya Secretary. Being a person actively involved in Youth Ministry, Bro.Jullian believes that MYF is a place where good administrators and leaders are developed and he is in the process of making all efforts to develop and strengthen leaders among the young people of the Local Churches in the District.
The Persaudaraan Belia Methodist Malaysia is in the process of being registered to the Registrar of Youth under the Youth & Sports Ministry of the Government. Through this registration, the youths of Methodist Church in Malaysia would have a voice in the Government and also would be able
to benefit from all Government created opportunities and fundings that would be made available for various programmes / projects.
At the recently held TAC Methodist Youth Fellowship Annual General Meeting, during the presentation of the TAC MYF President’s Report, Bro.Edwin did mention that Bro.Jullian and himself would ensure that the TAC Youths benefit from whatever available resources or opportunities created by the Government through the registration of Persaudaraan Belia Methodist Malaysia to the Registrar or Youth.
In a related matter, Rev. Jonathan Jesudas, the TAC Director for Youth Works was also appointed as a Youth Parliament Member by the Ministry of Youth & Sports Malaysia. This appointment further adds to the TAC MYF and PBMM’s ability to voice its concerns, share its vision and contribute towards positive growth on youth related matters in Malaysia.
As a Conference we would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and bless Rev. Jonathan, Bro.Edwin & Bro.Jullian for their achievement. We also pray that
God would continue to use them mightily to BUILD HIS KINGDOM and that GOD’S NAME would be GLORIFIED through their leadership.
