At the Asia Pacific Breakfast at the recent Church of God International General Assembly, Tony Lane, Discipleship and Children’s Ministry Coordinator for the Church of God, was awarded an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from the Asian Seminary of Christian Ministries (ASCM), the Church of God’s regional school for Asia Pacific located in Manila, Philippines.According to Scott Rains, president of ASCM, the award recognizes Lane’s many years of faithful ministry and excellence in training across the globe.
“Along with his renowned work with children and orphanages, Lane’s practical method of team training has connected the ministry expertise found in our Church of God churches in the U.S. with the vast training needs of our churches on the mission field to produce highly effective and far reaching ministerial equipping results,” Rains said. “Tony Lane has strategically worked with national overseers and regional seminaries to impart upon the current and next generation ministers the tools needed to be successful in the areas of children’s ministry, youth ministry, pastoral ministry, evangelism, and discipleship. His passion and compassion are unsurpassed and his life and ministry are truly making a difference for the Kingdom of God.”
