Evangelism Training in Southern Malawi

The Rev. Makweya Chanzah held a seven-day training for over 30 lay leaders in the Mulanje district of Southern Malawi. The training  covered worship leadership, reading lessons in worship, and preaching. Participants are licensed by the Bishop, and licenses are renewable for five years with the parish priest’s collaboration. Fr. Chanzah has dreams of evangelism in Southern Malawi that is based on an Acts 11 model of ordinary conversations, discipleship and reaching the unreached. He has identified an isolated region, Chikhwawa, for future evangelism efforts and believes that training lay leaders will go a long way toward strengthening the church in Malawi.
