Host pastor, who is the Director of Communication/Publishing/Religious Liberty/Public Affairs at the MICG, Alexander Marfoh said as the church grew, it was important for church leaders to stay in tune to modern communication technology of the world and use the tools to share the gospel.
He said there was the need for the participants to grasp the best strategies in the areas of Communication/Public Relations and Public Affairs/Religious Liberty as they sought to project the church of the Lord in their communities.
