Q1

Would you like to tell us a little about yourself?

My name is Stewart. I’m an assistant pastor in one of the churches in town, yeah. I was appointed at a church, but then our church doesn’t actually send pastors for training. When I came across this kind of training field, I felt it wise to come here for pastoral training.

Q2

Why did you decide to attend CAPA?

CAPA is extremely good, the teaching is very brilliant and it has really benefited me a lot. CAPA is extremely good, the teaching is very brilliant and it has really benefited me a lot. I never knew of CAPA until I saw in the paper. I was raised in Lilongwe, but I’ve never been to this institution. After reading it, I applied and found I was picked. So I found here; I’m in the diploma program. I am enjoying it and I like most of it. What we’re learning is quite beneficial to me.

Q3

How did you come to know Christ?

Well, I was born in a Christian family. As a family, we went to one church and I grew up in that Christian family. As a young boy, I did not grow up not as a Christian boy, but then when I was grown up when I was twenty years. From there, I received Jesus.

Q4

Are there any challenges that you face in ministry?

Our church would send us to rural places, where the resources are fewer and I have to use my own fuel, because I use my own car. But still, wherever we go, we have to sustain ourselves.

Q5

What do you plan to do after CAPA?

Yeah, I plan to retain my pastorship. I have no plans of change.
