(ACNS) African Bishops and Clergy Brainstorm On Church Financial Sustainability

Primate of the Church of the Province of Central Africa (CPCA) and Bishop of Northern Zambia, the Most Revd Albert Chama explained the purpose of the workshop during the opening ceremony held June 6 at the Chamba Valley Exotic Hotel in Lusaka.

He said: “One of the things which the church in Africa grapples with has to do with the financial sustainability of the church. However, this workshop is not about lecturing but learning from what has been done somewhere.”

Archbishop Chama challenged the participants to “open their hearts and minds” and learn from one another. He also emphasised that for the Church in Africa to be successful, there is need to learn from what other dioceses have successfully done and replicate it in their own areas.

    Too bad the western church with all it wealth could not be of help to the spiritual vitality of the African church. There are some in the west that are trying to influence the African church but usually in a direction that is not good for the overall spiritual health of the church. One has wealth, the other spiritual health. A thriving, stable church needs both.
