Hundreds attend the NAC exhibition in Lusaka
A total of 958 New Apostolic Church members and non-members attended the first ever New Apostolic Church exhibition at the Lusaka National Museum in Lusaka on July 30, 2016.
The event which was held in Zambia’s capital city was graced by District Apostle Charles Ndandula in the company of District Apostle Helper Robert Nsamba and Apostle Stanley Munsaka among others.
The exhibition lasted from 10:00hrs to 16:00hrs. The purpose of the exhibition was to provide a two-way communication process between the Church, the administration office, members and the general public.
The Doctrine and history of the New Apostolic Church, the New Apostolic Church Relief Organization (NACRO), Church Office Administration and Music were the main exhibition points.
Under Doctrine and Knowledge, a competent panel of ministers, brothers and sisters was assembled to discuss doctrinal matters of the New Apostolic Church – a move that offered an opportunity for a face-to-face interaction with our members and the general public.
The New Apostolic Church Relief Organization (NACRO) showcased its operations as a humanitarian arm of the New Apostolic Church in Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe, highlighting past, present and future projects/activities embarked on behalf of the New Apostolic Church.
To ensure that all the affairs of the Church run smoothly, the District Apostle has an Administration office in Lusaka, Zambia to coordinate all the activities of the church in the three countries (Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe). With the use of pictorial depictions, Church office highlighted the general role of the Church Office and explained among others, the Vision and Mission of the New Apostolic Church, statistics such as membership, number of congregations and ministers and number of newly constructed churches. The exhibition was also used as a platform for members to air their views and aspirations.
A small church choir and orchestra performed during the event.
After touring the exhibition
points, District Apostle Charles Ndandula was delighted and hoped that similar
events could be held in other Apostle Area
s in the near future.
“This is good! Thanks to the brethren
that worked day and night to put up this event. Exhibitions give an opportunity
to interact with our members and the general public.
"We hope that after this, our brothers and sisters and non New Apostolic Church members would have a better understanding of who we are, what we believe in and stand for – as the New Apostolic Church," he said.
This event was also used as a platform to carry out valuable market research on church literature and other materials needed by New Apostolic Church members.
Further, the exhibition was used to forge new relationships, strengthen existing alliances, build databases, generate positive Public Relations, reach out to new members and create a positive image of the church.
