A parallel church umbrella body known as the Apostolic Prophetic Network (APN) has been formed and launched in Lusaka.
Founding president Daniel Pule said the vision of the network was to speak on and partner in matters of national affairs.
Dr. Pule said the APN will among other things provide apostolic supervision, counsel, fellowship and networking to all churches from both local and international.
He has since called on churches, religious ministries, individuals, business and national leaders to join the network in order to promote Christian values in national affairs.
He said this at the launch of the APN at Dunamis Ministries in Lusaka today.
The formation of APN adds to the already existing church mother bodies in Zambia.
These are the Zambia Episcopal Conference (ZEC), Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) and the Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ).
Meanwhile, Dr. Pule has said although the country has experienced growth in all sectors of the economy, there was still need to provide quality leadership, mentoring and networking in all the areas so that they can be fully sustained.
He further said the church has also experienced growth as a result of new emerging churches, ministries and leaders that had a greater zeal of fulfilling God’s given mandate of evangelising the gospel.
The APN executive comprise of Dr. Pule as its founding president, Prophet Israel Chelelwa as the first vice president, Bishop Alick Mbewe as second vice president and Bishop Edward Mbaso and Bishop Andrew Nyoni as Directors.
