Christ Embassy to hold youth conference


Christ Embassy church in Malawi will Friday, September 30, holds its first Future African Leaders Conference at Kamuzu Institute for Sports in Lilongwe.

The aim of the conference is to inspire Malawian youths to sublime aspirations by becoming productive and instrumental in as far as development and progress of the country’s economy is concerned.

Speaking at a press conference in Lilongwe, Group Pastor for Christ Embassy Malawi North Chapter, Sammy Anista, said a study conducted by the church three years ago discovered that many Malawian youths were not involved in the production works, a development the pastor described to be detrimental to the economic growth of the country.


He said many youths, especially those educated, were busy hunting for the white-collar jobs forgetting that on their own they could start up something to earn a living.

Apart from the educated, the pastor also observed that even those who do not have any education qualification were not willing to participate in productive works, a tendency that he said needed to change.

“The conference is set to bring change in the way the youth and the public think as regards to job creation. We must not wait for companies to come and employ our people but we must rather create jobs for ourselves,” Anista said.


He said Malawi is not poor but it is the mentality that people have had that it is only the few and those educated who can contribute to the improved economy of the country.

“We expect about 2,000 youths from the Central Region and these are those in primary, secondary and tertiary schools, those employed and not working,” Anista said.

The conference is one of the many initiatives run by the church aimed at empowering the youth by exploiting and expanding their leadership potentials.

In Malawi, the conference is being held for the first time but it will be celebrated every year.

Rose Sakala, a Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources student, who is a current star winner for the Future African Leaders Award, appealed to Malawian youths to patronise the conference as it has a lot to offer that can change their lives.

“May I take this opportunity to appeal to my fellow youths to come and learn something that will change the course of their life,” she said.

Christ Embassy is a registered church under the laws of Malawi and it was founded by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.
