The sermon was delivered by Pdt. Jotje Hanri Karuh from GKI Kebonjati. With the theme “Berani Berubah Semakin Peduli dan Berbagi” (Dare to Change, to Care and Share More), Pdt. Jotje started by justifying the significance of education. Then he highlighted how BPK PENABUR’s mission is in line with the one of the Indonesia’s Ministry of Education.
