PRAISE AND WORSHIP
It’s a ministry under the creative ministry (CREAM) headed by the Praise and worship coordinator. Helps in organizing the praise and worship activities in the union, target members of the Union as well as the whole University community.
The Purpose of Our Worship of God
The purpose of our worship is to glorify, honor, praise, exalt, and please God. Our worship must show our adoration and loyalty to God for His grace in providing us with the way to escape the bondage of sin, so we can have the salvation He so much wants to give us. The nature of the worship God demands is the prostration of our souls before Him in humble and contrite submission. James 4:6, 10 tells us, “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up”. Our worship of God is a very humble and reverent action.
BEST-P. WHAT IS BEST-P?
“BEST-P” is an acronym for Bible Exposition Self – Training Program. It is a long term group-oriented training program on Bible study and expository preaching skills
THE BEST-P CONCEPT
Bible Exposition Self-Training Program focuses on skills of Bible study, bible exposition, and preparation of bible study guides. The group is initially trained on inductive Bible Study, principles of bible interpretation and the art of sermon preparation and presentation.
The group will then decide on the book(s), passages or themes of the bible to be studying. Each participant will be assigned a study unit. In their personal study, the participants will do a thorough study seeking to apply the skills learned and organize the study materials into a sermon. After this, every participant will do a presentation with the rest of the group members forming the audience. The group will evaluate the work focusing on the interpretation of the text, the flow, and the content of the sermon and the manner of presentation. They will make their contributions and comments which the presenter will consider in his final write-up and future presentations. Since evaluation is a key aspect of this training, the group will use a detailed evaluation form.

In addition to having the sorrow that is felt for the suffering of others, it is a willingness and an urge to assist them. The word actually means to do something about feeling sorry, to be affected by their situation. It is to enter into one’s sorrow and pain. When we feel true compassion, we will be moved inwardly. Having empathy; to have one’s heart reach out toward the needs of others. To be compassionate, to pity; to be kindhearted. It means to be tenderhearted; to be sensitive and affectionate, to be moved with tender feelings over the pain and sufferings of others.
