Adventist Relief and Development Agency (ADRA) Country Director, Dr. Denis Matekenya has challenged delegates attending the SID Elders Congress at Nalikule College to be more proactive in wealth creation.

Dr. Matekenya observed that the topic on entrepreneurship and wealth creation was significant because it liberates and empowers individuals and communities besides helping the church to leverage on resources that come from members.

“As a church, we should be having a conversation on how we should help our members to create wealth, so that they are able to use the resources to the comfort of their families and the advancement of God’s work,” Matekenya asserted

He advised church members not to attach negative labels to prospering folks in the church saying the attitude is only retrogressive and counterproductive in entrepreneurship and wealth creation.

Dr. Matekenya underscored the importance of the concept of entrepreneurship observing that it should not only be limited to the elders but cascade down to all church departments and clubs. He noted that as the world draws to the close of time, the employed would have a very difficult time observing the Sabbath as compared to those that are enterprising.

He emphasized the importance of the local church to create leverage and support and empower its members into enterprising calling it social-spiritual enterprising.

“As a church, we can help our members do enterprising, empowering them for missions,” he said

The theme for the first ever elders’ congress in the Malawi Union is “Empowered for Mission”
