MetadataShow full item record
This research investigates the impact of poverty on stewardship in the Zambian Anglican Church (ZAC), an interaction of arguments and agreements between geopolitical, socioeconomic and religious explanations. The aim of this research is to reinforce professional leadership functions and facilitate equitable sharing of ZAC wealth amongst Dioceses to develop Diocesan financial freedom and sustainable stewardship for the maintenance of ministry, including stipends and pensions for Clergy/Laity to alleviate poverty. In this study, a historical overview of the ZAC and the impact of poverty on stewardship is presented, followed by Biblical perspectives on poverty and a theological discussion of poverty as sin, on the basis of which a proposal on leadership in the ZAC is put forward. The study concludes with recommendations to the ZAC. The war on poverty is total transformative-emancipatory building freedom for the dignity of every human being as the creation of God in His own image.
