Hundreds attend ZEC's National Youth Conferences


During August the Fellowship of Youth, the young peoples' arm of the Zambesi Evangelical Church, organised four conferences at various points across Malawi and these were attended by vast numbers. One venue had to be discarded at short notice because it could not accommodate 1000 people and over 2000 young people attended the Balaka Conference.

Balaka Conference

The theme was centred around Isaiah 9:10 'Rebuilding the Foundations' and the sessions included Bible teaching on Spiritual foundations, Sexual purity and Marriage, Academic excellence, Career development and Business enterprise.

Gift Mphongolo, ZEC's national Youth Director comments, "On rebuilding the foundations, speakers talked of the foundations which can destroyed by decisions made in life and the youth were challenged to rebuild the foundations by meeting the Chief Builder who is Jesus. Through the teachings on the rebuilding a lot of youth were saved and some were delivered from evil spirits that were destroying their foundations".


The objectives of the conferences were ~

  • To help the youth to recommit their lives to Christ as the Foundation of their lives.
  • To have a positive effect on the preparations and view of marriage among the youth.
  • To help the youth to make decisions that will bring personal development and rebuild the foundations for personal development.
  • To help the youth to fellowship with each other and also use their musical talents and other gifts.

Arranging events on such a vast scale inevitably present challenges but problems concerning venues, speakers and finance were overcome and many lessons were learned not only by the young people but also by the leaders and organisers.

Please join us in Praising God for ~

  • Making it possible to arrange and hold conferences on such a scale
  • All the young people who surrendered to the Lord and had their lives changed.

Please pray that ~

  • The teaching given will continue to have a profound effect upon those who attended and upon the ZEC Churches generally
  • The resources will be available to arrange similar events in the future
  • It will be possible to provide Bibles for each of these young people, many of whom will not be able to afford the cost without help from Zambesi Mission and others.
