The isiZulu Department of TWR Africa were recently awarded the prestigious FAITH BROADCASTING NETWORK: FAITH THAT COUNTS AWARD at a Gala Event at the annual Association of Christian Media of Southern Africa Conference held near Johannesburg.
The award is intended for an organization that is running a very successful project that reaches out to the community in a practical and meaningful way, other than via their principle media efforts.
Receiving the award on behalf of TWR Africa, Zulu Ministry Director, Petros Gwala said “it was such a great joy to hear our name called to receive the (award) … and to be recognised and acknowledged for the ministry in Kwazulu-Natal”.
The project in focus for the award is called “Phambili” (which means “(moving) forward”). It is a capacity building leadership programme. In partnership with other stakeholders, radio programmes are followed up with seminars and supplementary material which is provided to assist church leaders. International Vice President for Africa, Dr Branko Bjelajac commented: “We thank God for the opportunity to minister in His name and we give God all the glory and honour for this award. Our congratulations go to Petros and his team in KwaZulu-Natal.”
