Peer Discipleship Initiative for the Youth

The Rev. Chanju Banda held a five-day training for forty youth and ten pastors in July, 2018. The group included representatives from the major Christian denominations in the area. Although he intended to hold one session for the pastors, and then another for the youth, logistics required that he combine the sessions. He believes that the interaction between the pastors and the youth was the most important part of his work. He calls it a “wonderful and rare time” when pastors were able to appreciate the gifts of the youth and youth were encouraged and empowered to share their gifts with the church. His dream is to further involve youth in discipleship and evangelism.
