In a world of unfaithfulness, what does a faithful gospel worker look like?
Phumezo Masango is a great example.
Phumezo is a good friend of mine and a lecturer at George Whitefield College, the Bible college affiliated with our denomination. He has also been a minister at Christ Church Khayelitsha for many years.
He has faced many challenges serving among many who embrace African Traditional Religions, where the ancestors are venerated and prayed to for help, guidance and protection.
Phumezo and the team at Christ Church Khayelitsha face particular challenges around the practice of circumcision.
They don’t have a problem with circumcision itself, but they do have a problem with the boys being part of rituals that call upon the ancestors.
