Chairperson for the APC Southern African Development Community (Sadc) Bishop Mark Kambalazaza said the congress aims to help members achieve apostolic vision, restore the lost apostolic order and uphold biblical authentic teachings of Christ.
“To establish permanency and continuity even after the retirement of founding leaders we foster and build the unity of Pentecostal world by educating and training our members through St Hadrian College in Manchester,” said Kambalazaza.
Bishops consecrated include; Alex Msikiti from Pentecostal Christ Church of International, Martin Chirwa from Presbyterian Church of Malawi, John Chilimtsidya, Charismatic Redeemed Ministries International’s Kennedy Kamanga, Peter Kaweta of Jesus Outreach Church and Owen Mwale.
The consecration was part of the Great September Convention that started on Wednesday and ended yesterday.
