[EAB Press - Burundi] The Most Rev. Bernard Ntahoturi, with Rt. Rev. Martin Nyaboho and four other delegates, joined 103 delegates, representing 20 provinces from Africa, Asia and Latin America, to address the theme of the Encounter, “One Holy Catholic Apostolic Church: Being a faithful Church for such a time as this”.

Commitments were made to the authority of Scripture, mission and ministry, theological education, and youth. Other issues discussed included poverty, HIV/AIDS, corruption, and violent conflict.

The Encounter’s final statement says, “We offer to God this deepening fellowship among the Global South churches that we might be a servant-body to the larger Church and to the world.”
