The Word Through Fashion

IN this day and age where the fashion scene seems to be becoming bigger and bigger, Koi International Worship Centre is using fashion to spread the Gospel in their upcoming teaching series called ‘Tailor Made’.

The series, which kicks off on 5 October at 09h00 and 11h15, will run for six consecutive weeks every Sunday. Part of the night services will be turned into a ‘Rip the Runway’ fashion show where someone will be ministering in song or spoken word and models will be showing off their different fashion items.

Pastor Michael Amey of Koi says that using the growing fashion frenzy to teach the Word is aimed at teaching people to get to know Jesus as being “real, relevant and touchable” and teaching people to see Christ as the master tailor of their lives.

“We are crazy about clothes, we have a passion for fashion and with this series we are going to explore where it all started. We are going to find out that this life will never make sense until we discover the common thread that holds it all together and reconnect the disconnected fabrics of our lives,” Amey said.

Being a fashion fanatic himself, Amey said he decided on a fashion theme teaching because fashion has the ability to gather people from all walks of life and all age groups.

He said that fashion is a culture that is about creativity and innovation and pushing boundaries and seeing the church he leads he leads in the same light, the Tailor Made series made sense to spread and teach the Word.

Amey added that on the last day of the six-week series, the church plans on turning the church grounds into a water-park, closing off the series with a massive baptism.
