Newly Joined Staff Receive Orientation on GEMS History, Values, Vision and Mission

The Human Resources (HR) department of GEMS conducted orientation program for all the newly joined staff and missionaries of GEMS and was attended by 144 people.
image
The orientation program was conducted on 3rd Aug 2016 at the GEMS Auditorium, Sikaria. The purpose of this session was to acquaint the members about the history of GEMS and to emphasis on our values, mission, vision and goals. Brochures and manuals pertaining to key policies and code of conduct were also provided to all the participants.

It started with worship and prayer by Bro. Jesuraja followed by welcome address by the Executive Director Dr. Ashok. He gave a brief view about GEMS mission and vision which should be our passion. He also emphasized on the five core values of GEMS which is Sincerity, Simplicity, Sanctity, Sacrifice and Service.

The General Secretary Bro. D. Augustine Jebakumar addressed the gathering and shared about the origin and growth of GEMS since 1972, citing the highlights of the ministry spanning a period of 40 years and above.  He shared about the Seven Fold ministries of GEMS in a nutshell.

1.  Evangelism and Church Planting
2.  Discipleship &Training
3.  Educational Services
4.  Humanitarian Services (Mercy Ministries)
image
He also mentioned that the history behind every ministry is found in detail in the book ‘No One Else’. He emphasized on the code of conduct and the rules to be adhered with biblical basis to be followed.
He shared the importance of prayer and how the ministry sprung out from the prayer of a few youths who would gather together to pray quite often. As a result, the Lord had enlarged the ministry of GEMS. Anything which is initiated by God, given to right man or woman who has the burden can produce the result which God wants to do in this world. Ministry should be fulfilled even though there may be many hindrances like sickness and nothing should separate us from our Lord.
image
The vision is from God and the motto of GEMS is “Transforming Peoples to Transform Nations”. In whichever field one may be placed our heart should be to transform the people through the Lord Jesus Christ. He also spoke on the faith policy and on the leadership hierarchy for functional clarity.
Bro. Babu Rajareehan helped in translating the whole session. The session concluded with the vote of thanks given by the Coordinator of HR Dept Sis. Reena Goforth who also conducted a game to emphasize the importance to nurture our God given vision and how not to hinder other’s vision.
image

Pray for all who have newly joined the ministry of GEMS to serve the Lord and to build His kingdom. Pray that they may not only begin well, but run well by keeping the faith and may fulfil God’s will & His plans and to serve selflessly for His glory.
