Greetings in the match less name of Jesus
the Lord in everything you do, and He will show you the
right way.” Proverbs Ch 3 v 6
My most humble gratitude goes to the Almighty God and
to the officers of the Presbyterian Church of Pakistan
who considered it fit to install me as the Executive
Secretary, a position vacated by Rev Dr Maqsood Kamil
who has headed to United Kingdom, for higher studies.
I am in chair with effect from 1st July 2011.
I have already served the Presbyterian Church (USA)
in Lahore for ten years, interacting with pastors and
congregations of the Presbyterian Church of Pakistan.
During that decade, I acquired intimate knowledge of the
difficulties the pastor's face in spreading the word of
God, the conditions of their churches filled mostly with
low income congregations and the financial problems
confronted by the pastors themselves.
I am thankful to the members who showed confidence in
voting for me and I pray that the Lord give me wisdom to
deal with situations that come our way.
With great care and fidelity I shall carry out the
responsibilities by which I am bound in relation to the
office in which I am called to exercise my service. I
shall follow and foster the common discipline of the
Presbyterian Church of Pakistan. I am born Presbyterian
and belong to Saint Andrews Presbyterian Church, Nabha
Road, Lahore. I shall faithfully assist the office
bearers, the pastors and the congregations so that
apostolic activity continues to be exercised by the
mandate and in the name of the church. May the Lord
Jesus Christ help me in being so faithful.
