JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA (ADV) – The International Christian Assembly is set to hold a leadership conference named Catalyst 2019 in Malawi, with the aim to equip leaders with leadership skills and knowledge.

One of the event’s organisers, Pastor Jerry Zimba, told Malawi24.com that this year’s conference would be special and unique, considering that the country is set to have its general elections, adding that those who would be contesting for various public positions and those who are not, were due to learn what leadership is all about.

“Leadership is one key area that affects the progress of any community. We need leaders that are truly leaders, not just leaders because they are in positions. Innovative leadership is therefore a must for people to increase their influence, one of the ways to sharpen these leadership skills is through such conferences,” he said.

Zimba added that the two-day conference which is set for today and tomorrow at the ICA youth Auditorium in Lilongwe, would target all kinds of people including leaders from the public, the private sector and those from the churches.

“People should be assured of a holistic coverage to issues to do with innovative leadership because we have roped in wonderful speakers from the church and also public and private sector,” he said.

Catalyst is an annual leadership conference, it is a brain child of the International Christian Assembly, a local church of the Malawi Assemblies of God.
