Rustenburg – Community for Jesus (CFJ) held their 47th annual national conference in Rustenburg, Freedom Park, from 2-6 October. The conference was well attended by church leaders coming from all over the country as well as Botswana.

Bishop CA Chauke reminded all the delegates, that as leaders they must understand that there are challenges that will affect them, and can have negative influence on their decision making process. “What is important is that church leaders must walk the talk and lead by example, irrespective of the situation.” Bishop Chauke further reiterated that the church faces internal and external forces, but that the church must create an environment of peace and unity. “Once church members are united, they can easily conquer any challenge,” he said.

Says Life president, archbishop AV Silwana: “Persistence should be your leading characteristic, especially during trying times.” Archbishop Silwana also urged that CFJ should be beneficial to all its members in its communities.

Says archbishop NS Sithole, national spokesperson: “One of the burning issues at this stage is the lack of funding to secure land to erect church structures. This issue affects a majority of independent churches. We must be innovative in solving this challenge.”
