As a native pastor in Sesheke, a small border town in Western Zambia, David was troubled by the desperate situation of his community.
Sesheke is one of the biggest timber revenue collection areas in Zambia and at the same time remains one of the poorest districts in the country. When he became the chairperson of the pastors fellowship in Sesheke in 2007 they implemented a development program with the aim of transforming the community. After a few years and having to face many challenges David was compelled to ask himself the question “how effective is the Church at its transformational task”? And secondly, “how can the church become more effective”?
In his honest search for answers he was faced with the resounding conclusion from the community that “the church had failed in its transformational task”.
