Papua New Guinea Union Mission hosted 130 Adventist professionals, Businessmen and women at the Lae International Hotel for the two-day Faith vs Finance summit. The particpants came from Autonomous Region of Bougainville, New Ireland, East New Britain, West New Britain, Madang, Sepik, Eastern Highlands, Simbu, Northern and Morobe provinces.

Julian Archer, the author of book entitled " Help! I've Been Blessed" was the guest speaker. He stressed the importance of keeping in connection with God at all times. "When God blesses you with material wealth, He requires you to improve your giving and not living." He said. "Let us not be crossed-eyed Christains but keeping our eyes on the cross daily for direction."
Other presentations made during the summit include, Small to Medium Enterprise by Bank South Pacific, Total Member Involvement, and Health principles on stress.

It was agreed that the Professional, Businessmen and Women summit will become an annual event in the Papua New Guinea Union Mission calendar as the particpants found it to be enriching and helpful not only in their business endevours but their personal walk with God.
The meeting ended with a consecration service, dedicating every particpant to be builders for the LORD in His vineyard.
