CCAP Blantyre Synod on Sunday hailed its Limbe congregation for developing a five-year strategic plan.
Deputy general secretary (DGS) Reverend Moyenda Kanjerwa described the strategic plan as a master-piece tool for the congregation.
“Strategic plans help churches and organisations to maintain standards and leadership continuity. This is good for spiritual growth and maturity of the leadership of the synod.
“The Limbe congregation has set the pace for other congregations, presbyteries, and even the synod,” said Kanjerwa.
Limbe congregation moderator, who is also moderator of the synod, Reverend Rabson Chimkwezule, assured both the synod and his congregation that the strategic plan will be actualised.
“In this plan, we have six pillars with 26 goals. The pillars are spiritual growth, evangelism and soul winning, human care ministries, fellowship and partnership improvements, physical and financial development and lastly talent identification, development and utilisation,” said Chimkwezule.
Session clerk for Limbe, Elliot Mulanje, said in the plan, the church was looking the whole person—from body, soul and spirit.
“We first had a strategic plan from 2007-2012, but we experienced several challenges, including failure to move together as a church. We had to review it in mid-way.
“During this 2015-2019 plan, everything has been put in place and all responsible persons know their roles,” said Mulanje.
