More than 70 African ecumenical leaders will take part in training seminars for diakonia and development, improving human resource development capacities of churches across all regions of the continent.
The World Council of Churches (WCC) is facilitating three seminars in cooperation with the All Africa Conference of Churches in May and June 2019. The All Africa Conference of Churches has recently finalized its Strategic Plan for the next five years, having ecclesial leadership development as one of its programmatic focuses.
“These seminars will strengthen churches in the region in their human resource development capacities for diakonia and development through exchange of best practices, use of resources and methodologies, and mutual analysis of the challenges and issues in their region”, said Rev. Matthew Ross, WCC’s programme executive for Diakonia and Capacity Building, adding that the WCC is grateful to Brot fuer die Welt for its support for the project.
