This research concerns the leadership impact in the work of God by Bommemamoruti (pastors’ wives) in the South Gauteng region of the AFM from 1992 to 2008. Focus will, particularly, be placed on the impact and roles played by Bommemamoruti concerning the AFM of SA. Churches, and the community at large, carry unwritten and unclear role expectations of pastors’ wives. The wives of pastors have to, among many other things, organise women’s weekly meetings, raise funds for activities and organise meetings beyond local AFM assemblies. The activities mentioned above, are often expected to be arranged by the wives of pastors. According to the 2009 South Gauteng Region Sisters’ Fellowship Councils’ Annual report, some of these activities no longer exist, whilst others have lost considerable support from local assemblies of the AFM of South Africa’s Sisters’ Fellowship. The decline of interest in the work of God displayed by Bomme-mamoruti in the AFM Sisters’ Fellowship, has not only affected the local assemblies but also the AFM region of South Gauteng. The issue that this research probes is: What, if any, is the leadership impact of Bomme-mamoruti in the AFM with special reference to the South Gauteng region of the AFM?
