Leaders are viewed as people who enjoy authority & fame all the time. That is half true. There are prices they also pay. There are challenges that confront them on a consistent basis, as they lead. For that matter, anything good and deserving has prices.
AHM and its partners in Silver Spring, MD do fellowship, pray, and study the Bible on a weekly basis. However, due to limited space, we cannot add as many partners as we would like. Of course, there are still a couple of seats where you may join us if you are in the metro area and without home church. First come, first served.
We strongly believe that, in the 21st century, distance shouldn’t limit us to partner. Accordingly, the Ministry created vPartnership opportunity for those of you who are afar. You may become vPartner (virtual Partner) and benefit from the Ministry’s services.

A workshop was organized for leaders of the Anointed Word of God International Church in Washington DC on March 17, 2012. The theme of the workshop was “Character: The cornerstone of impactful leadership”.
The workshop directly relates to the mission of the Church, that is, presenting everyone fully mature in Christ (Colossians 1: 28). That is why Pastor Milisha arranged this workshop. This is a very wise choice because raising mature believers requires working on their character, and there is no better place to start that assignment, from the leadership.
There are lots of teachings about holiness but most of them are focused on abstaining from eating or smoking or dressing or drinking something impermissible, or not doing some bad stuffs. But character is more than that! There is also a misunderstanding where people think that character can be developed if they just pray and fast. They don’t realize that this task is primarily their decision, commitment, & effort on a consistent basis, which is until their last breathe. Others think that character can be imparted from someone who has good character. It is true that someone may influence another because of his/her good character but everyone is responsible to work on his/her character.
On top of that many leaders focus on their leadership competencies such as the ability to communicate, strategize, plan, and so on. However, Tim Elmore likened leadership with iceberg, and said that the 90 %, which is below the water, is the one that sinks the ship. Likewise, leadership is 90 % character, and 10% competency. Unfortunately, many organizations and Ministries invest less in developing the character of their leaders and people compared to their investment towards other areas of competencies. Many give it little time, attention, and rarely develop their peoples’ character consciously.
Note: Assegid Habtewold, Founder and President of Assegid Habtewold Ministries, facilitated the workshop. The workshop covered topics such as ‘What isn’t character’, ‘What is character’, ‘Why leaders need character’, ‘Major characters leaders should develop’, and ‘The steps to develop unshakeable character’.
