KONDWANI PRECIOUS MWANGLA
Kondwani Precious Mwangala was born in 1979 as the last of ten children. In 1997 he began attending African Bible Colleges because he wanted to receive sound academic and spiritual training. ABC was the only place that could provide this for Mr. Mwangala.
He enjoyed several of his courses while at ABC but the ones he remembers the most fondly are "Speech Communication," "Social and Political Science," "Systematic Theology" and "History and Philosophy of Education." He reports that he especially enjoyed the class lectures, Spiritual Emphasis week, and Kyle Ray Super Saturdays.
Upon graduation from ABC in 2001, Mr. Mwangala worked with the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students, (IFES) movement in Malawi called the Student Christian Organization of Malawi, (SCOM) from 2001 to 2003. While with SCOM, his major responsibilities were to do leadership training and development among student Christian leaders in both secondary and tertiary learning institutions. He also worked to train them in developing Bible study materials for use in their particular campus ministries.
After working with SCOM for 2 years, Kondwani Precious Mwangala resigned in order to work with World Relief, in the Malawi office. He functions as the Youth Program Coordinator--a title he continues to hold. With World Relief Malawi, he is responsible for leadership training and development; especially among youth leaders in various local evangelical churches.
"ABC prepared me for my work with both SCOM and World Relief. During the four years I spent at ABC I was being developed into a Christian leader. Now I am able to pass on what I learned to various young people with the hope and expectation that they also will be able to pass it on to others. ABC has given not only me but also other graduates the ability to permeate our society and influence it for Christ."
African Bible Colleges has caused an increase in the number of Christian leaders who are now influencing both the private and civil society in Malawi. Mr. Mwangala is not alone in this regard. In fact, his wife, Ida, also graduated from ABC in 2003 and they were married in 2005. She now works with Partners in Hope as Program Manager for Youth HIV/AIDS Prevention. "She has been supportive not only at home but in my work and ministry. We have the same ABC background. What a blessing!"
