Chitsonga reclaimed the top most position of the Church in tightly contested race held on 12th August at the churches’ headquarters in Lilongwe.

Speaking in an interview, Reverend Chitsonga described his appointment as a new challenge which he said needs God’s guidance and grace.

“I feel very much humbled to be elected on this position, I take it as a challenge not a privilege because in our days there are many challenges on this position,” he said

Answering on his plans in the next four years, Chitsonga said he look forward to forge ahead in accomplishing the decade of Pentecost goals which are to be accomplished in 2020.

“We have our ten year plan, therefore I will make sure that we are in line with those plans and also I look forward to move across the country to encourage the church to keep praying” He said.

Also for the first time a female pastor has been elected in the top position of leadership in the Malawi Assemblies of God family.

Rev MaltidaMatabwa has been elected as the Church’s secretary General breaking a record of being a first woman in the executive of the church.

Speaking in an interview Matabwa expressed satisfaction and excitement and promised to continue moving the church in the right direction.

“It feels good and am very humbled. My dream is to keep the movement on track” She said.

Some other people elected in other positions include Rev Dr Andrew Dube who is now  vice president and  Rev  George chiwaya as the secretary general.

The Assemblies of God Church came to Malawi in the 1940’s and it was first introduced in the country by missionaries who first arrived in Ntcheu district.
