At Su no Hikari Church, based on the guidance of Kyoshu-sama and receiving the spirit with which Meishu-sama founded his church World Church of Messiah in 1950, the Committee for the Preparation of the New Organizational Structure was established in August of this year. We put forward plans to create an entirely new organizational structure that would be able to serve God’s will of making all of humanity be born anew as His own children, Messiahs.

Then, on September 30 from three o’clock in the afternoon, under the presence of Kyoshu-sama, his wife Mayumi-okusama and his successor Masaaki-sama, the Ceremony for Approval of Executive Directors and Directors of the Board & Ceremony for Presentation of Authorization of President solemnly took place.

First, the newly elected executive directors and directors of the board received the approval of Kyoshu-sama. Next, President Narii received the Certificate of Authorization from Kyoshu-sama for his re-appointment of President. Continuing on, Executive Directors Rev. Shirasawa and Rev. Kawatani received their Certificate of Authorization from Kyoshu-sama for their appointments as Vice President. After President Narii gave a declaration of determination, everyone received a message from Kyoshu-sama. Then, under the lead of Kyoshu-sama, everyone took part in the reporting prayer.

The next day on October 1, the Ceremony for Approval of Regional Directors, Area Heads and Headquarters Directors and Managers took place, with a total of 163 staff ministers and members from all over the country attending.

After the introductions of the new executive directors and directors of the board, the candidates for regional directors, area heads, regional administrators, and headquarters directors and managers received the approval of Kyoshu-sama. Next, President Narii gave a declaration of determination.

After Masaaki-sama stood to give a greeting, Kyoshu-sama delivered his message. Next, with Kyoshu-sama leading, all attendees prayed the Amatsu Norito. Taking place in a solemn atmosphere, the ceremony came to an end.
