Ken dotna hon dongkik leng bangziak a saptuam kipan ahia? Bangziak a a tuam om poimoh sakna om ahia? A omsate’n khat a om hoih a sakna uh bang ahia? Huaitoh kisai in etdan nih in khentheih hi : Khatna ah Apostolic Church; huai in a gen noptak bel ei le ei kikep ding,doctrine a khan ding, hoihtak a pastoral ministry hihding ahi.Anihna Missional Church: Huai ihihlebel ei le ei kikep ban ah a purpose thupi zaw Mission hizaw ahi.

Himahleh kei deihtelna non dot uleh bel kei a ding in bel mission hi gige ding hi.

Saptuam heutute’n political movement ah role play poimoh na sa hia? A tuam vilvel a om hoih zaw ding adiam?
Bangtan saptuam ki involve (tel/pang) ding adiam chih ken le theihhak ka sa hi. Thukhunlui ah Zawlneite’n naktakin social concern neiin thu hangsan tak in a gen uh, Pathian apan a zak uh ahi. Tulaiin miteng thugen dia kisa ihih chian mitengin authority Zawlneite banga nei ihi ichih leh bel tua bang authority nei omlo ahih khak ding lau huai hi. I gam hoihzawk na ding a, koi tan apan hoihding, kuaten tua mohpuak na nei or authoritative message nei chih bang leng thil piak leh Pathian sapna honghi zel kha ding hi. Biblical teaching or practical involvement bang lam hiam bel michih in panna nei chiat ding ihi uh chih ka gingta hi.
 
Zogam ah Church Leadership in ‘moral authority’ nei huntawk in na mu hia?
Pathian nasepna kizatna chih pen michih sep ding himah leh I mohpuakna a tuam chiat Toupa’n honpia hi. Atunga dotna mah bangin kuante’n sem dia; bangchi sep ding?Koi mun leh koi hun ah chihte theih siam dia sinsakna kisam ahi. Doctor-na hiam, Engineer na hiam michih in I sep theilouh bang dan ahi. Pathian nasepna michih a ding ahi-a; hima leh I sep ding tuam chiat aom hi. Zogam a saptuam makaiten (Pathian sap miten) politics, gam vai hawmna ah moral and spiritual authority a neih ding uh ahi, mohpuakn kichi leh authority kichi pen a kikhen theilo thil ahi. Toupa sap thil piak neiten moral and spiritual authority leng nei uhi. Hiai pen zanglou a surrender mai ihi hia; a zanglou dingpi in zang hia; kuaman zanglou hia chihte thil theihhak ahi, amau leh Pathian kal thu ahi hi.
 
I gam in theological college bangzah hiam nei a, tuailai tampi graduate ding I nei gige hi. Career guidance in Mission tasam I hiam? Career guidance sang mah a leng purpose of God zongkhe zoulou ihidiam?
Pathian deihdan thei mi kitam hetlou kha ding ahi; tua thei dingin leng panpih ngai mitam pi omhi. Tua omdan bel Pathian deih dan zawna ah careers guidance in mohpuakna lianpi a nei a apangkhawm ding thil ahi hi. Careers guidance pen Christian Careers guidance a kisam mahmah hi.

Tua ding in pan I la uh hiam chih leng etthak poimoh hi. Nidang a thil kisam leh hihdan tuni in kikhek ving veng simta hi. School hiam, seminary hiam ,institution khat peuh sub-standard a mi’n a honkhiak leh tuailai tampite hihna hihsia (poisioned) uh hiin ka thei hi. Kum bangtan hiam paita a Sangai Express a ka article khen khat in a simkhak ka lamen hi.
 
Metro city-te khawng ah tuailaite lak a semding in theologian poimoh zaw ihia or psychologist?
Anih in poimoh ka chi ding. Psychology without theology of the living God is most dangerous one. Metropolitan a semding chu ahithei tan in team-work poimoh ahi. Tua bang a a team I neih theih kei leh na akisam lam training (degree) hi sese lou piak ding. Saptuam pianzia- structure toh kisai in abikin Metropolitan city ah hiai ngaihsut kisam- Kuamah nna teng a veka specialized omlou ahi-a tuaziak in saptuam lian neih a huai a pastoral team hoihtak –preaching, teaching, training, member care, holistic ministry, mission outreach leh a tuam tuam sem ding kiningching zaw deuh a saptuam kep a hoihdiam?

Tua pastor khat in saptuam khat kem a hoihtak a nasepna poimohte hivek zawh vualding hilou hi. Metropolitan city a nasep pan ihihziak in ministry philosophy kichiantak toh nasep paitouh hoih ding hiin mu ing.
 
Khopi tuam tuam ah Saptuam te ah tuailai te 70 per cent ahi tangpi uh ahi. Huci kawmkal ah innlam a saptuam chih in amau belamte kepna ngai poimoh chi in saptuam a phutchiat uh hi. Tua bang kal ah mun tuamtuam a khopi tuailaite lak Youth Pastor/Chaplain deihna bang lian mahmah hin langta hi.Huaitoh kisai in Khopi tuailai ten bangchi panlak hoih hihiam? Eilam saptuam te kivaipuakdan tangpi in Centralized Saptuam ngen I hisim uh hi. Ka chihna bel Lamka a I munpi chiat un vai hon hawmdan ua pai I hi uhi.

Tulel dinmun ah I heutute muh dan leh panlakna dan tan a ipai uh ngai ding bang hi. Huaiziak in I khangthu a dingin hunthak leh thil thak I tawt ngei nailouhna a lut ihihman idea hoih nei ten consultation hiam neih a pan lak ngai in ka gingta hi.
 
Tulai in chindan thak Pastor te kiang ah maitam doh chidan a thumsakna ngenin sum tah chihdan hong kithang a bang a. a hiding mah hiam?
Tuapen Innlam a heutute’n hon dawng thei zaw ding uh. Ka gensa bang in traditionalism lam nawt I bang uhi. Innlat ding, gari leh latding tuam tuam bang tamchi theilua, denchiang in hiai I Bible bang leng practice toh hong kikim leh Roman Catholicism dinmun toh kinai kha ding ahi.Huailam I nawtzaw ding hiam chih bel ka theikei,hilele a trend bel om hi.Kum bangzah hiam nung chia Bible leh tradition/practice ki bang dan a ngai poimohna I lut leh bel hong haksa ding hi.
 
 I gam a Pathian thu a upat deuhdeuh leh khotang siatna uang dedeuh abang hi. Pileputen ana neih uh ginomna leh muanhuainate khawng tulai khangthakten mansuah mahmahta. Bangziak ahi di? Bangchi panlak ahoih dia?
Pathian thu ahibanga a zui hileng I pi-le-pute sangmah a itna, phatuam ngaihna leh ginomnate nei tam zaw ding ihi hi. I pi-le-pute Pathian in manphatna value ichih ana piak tetung a Toupa hoihna value lamtouha om dinglai vangsiat huai takin tua manphatna mangsak hiai hiai I bang hi.Hiai hoihna kichite khotang a sawm thua neih theih ding ahi khawl kei dia Pathian lam mah a I puklut a ngai ding hi. Mimal, inkuan, saptuam/ khotang sep ding mohpuak omtek ding hi. Pathianin mihingte a hon lamet lian leh mohpuakna hon piak Tangthupha gena mite Hotdamna huang api leh leitung/khovel vengbit leh bawl hoih dia ‘chi leh vak’( Mathai 5;13-16) dia hon koih ka chi hi. Tua penetration mohpuakna ei tunga om hi chih theih mahmah ding ahi. Khotang society in bel mimal influence mahmah eimah ve.
 
Nang le nang kibuk di hitalechin, Pathian honsapna/deihna bangbang semkhia mah hi in na kithei hia?
Tua dotna toh kisai thil dawn hak ahi. Kei etdan in Pathian in semkhe dia hon lamet leh deihna bangzah hiam chih quantity and quality thei kei mahleng a sem khe zoulou pente laka khat ka hikha ding chih ka lau thawng hi. Ahihhang, Pathiana kipahna hidia ka gintak leh kei a lungkimna ahihleh ‘bangzah semkhia leh bang dinmun a lian a ding’ chih sangin Pathian hondeihna theichian mahmah a ka hihtheih tan a ginomna toh ka zuih Toupa lam a kakipahna ahi hi. ‘Faithfulness is more important than Fruitfulness’ chih ka thupi ahi hi. Sepkhiak gah tam, dinmun lian leh sum leh pai tampi khol, in-leh-lou tampi thupi leh tampi neih chih khong hoih mahmah bang mahleh tuate in Toupa nasepna ah ka lungsim ala hek ngei keia, Toupa ka phat hi. Muanhuai leh itna toh Toupa honchihna thei chian a zuih ding chih ka damp san khat hiin ka thei hi.
 
Mimal hi in saptuam/pawlpi hitaleh Pathian deihdan theih chiang haksapi ahihman in hiai toh kisai NET simtute a ding in bang na thukhak nuam a?
Hiai thu poimoh leh saupi a gendia hoih himahleh tomchik in ka hong dawng ding-Michih Pathian in i hinna ua thil tup neiin a mi tuam kibanglou chiatin a hon bawla; tua subuching dingin michih in thilpiak I tang hi, chih kuapeuh in Laisiangtho thu isel thei kei ding hi. Tua ahihleh tua michih aom muh khiak ding. Anihna ah tua thil piak zangthei dia sinsak (train) ding, Thumna ah, michih saptuam leh khotang Toupa thilpiak aneih bang chiat uh zat sak ding ahi (Hiai in leadership leh ministry structure leng sukha ding ahi).
