Speaking at a one day Seminar Organized by the Synodic Committee at Buchi
Congregation in Kitwe over the weekend, R C Z Rev. Isaac Banda said the Church
needed the leadership that will move with time and teach the truth and support the
government in power.
The participants were drawn from Solwezi, Mansa, Chililabombwe, Mufulira, Kalulushi,
Chamita and Kitwe Congregations.
Rev. Banda said where there was good leadership people sit together and accommodate
other people’s views for the smooth running of congregations.
He said the Church needs the Leaders in order to give guidance, teach and to be
sensitive with the plight of the people they were leading in the
And speaking at the same seminar Elder Ruben Banda said the church needed financial
discipline and transparency in handling church finances.
He added that at times financial problems arose in churches especially when you have
treasurers who did not know how to handle church money.
He said treasurers running Church Accounts should be Men and Women with the full
spirit, wisdom, faith, High integrity and sincere.
Meanwhile, Rev. Thomas Khosa urged the church to give to the poor and not only
expect to receive handouts from members.
