Home Leagues in this Territory have been instrumental in bringing people to Christ and in many cases, becoming members of the local church or fellowship.
Regional Rallies are regularly held throughout PNG and are a time of encouragement, sharing and praying for all those who attend.
This is a program introduced by this territory for unmarried girls from 13 to 21 held once a week in the majority of Churches and Fellowships. They come together and learn skills training and enjoy each other's company, as well as Bible Studies. All divisions conducted a Junior Miss Camps during the year.
It is a time when men & young boys come to fellowship together, talk about the challengers they face and encourage each other, how to live with God and let God transforms their mindsets and hearts so they know the will of God in their lives. The men usually have their own events and one of this is the men’s only weekend.
