Day two of the annual Leadership Conference began with Dr. Sam Horn preaching the opening general session. His spoke about Developing the Heart of a Servant and used Romans 12:1-2 as his text. He pointed out that this text comes after 11 chapters of truth revealed about the gospel. ”The gospel embraced as truth results in a change of thinking resulting in a different living. He mentioned that the defining mark of a servant is that he spends his life doing the will of someone else.
The workshops today focused on servant-leadership in the Workplace. Dr. Matt Williams and Dr. Grave Singogo handled the five main workshop sessions and did an excellent job opening up Scripture on this issue.
The Chaplains continue their study of the Old Testament with Pastor Francis Kaunda as their lecturer. Dr. Singogo handled a session with the Chaplains in which he discussed a biblical view of capital punishment.
Dr. Sam Horn taught the Pastor’s block class throughout the day as they continued to work through the Minor Prophets. There was at times very lively discussions, and interactive Q&A times.
The day ended with a worship service.

In each workshop and general session interpreters for the deaf translated the teachings for the hearing impaired who are part of the conference this year.
Faith Baptist Church of Kwacha provided special music during the evening service. FBC Kwacha is led by Pastor Pius Chanda, a 2009 CABC Alumni.
Pastor Brian Fuller brought the evening message from Psalm 32. He pointed out that we must deal with our guilt by recognizing how much God has forgiven us for. Our motivation for being a servant-leader is that we have been forgiven much, therefore we ought to love much!
