Welcome to the Secretariat department, the administrative backbone of our mission-driven community. The Secretariat department is committed to training and supporting district and church secretariat departments, promoting knowledge and efficiency across our network.

At the core of our operations is the maintenance of the Church's Working Policy, a living document that guides our actions and decisions. With precision and dedication, we ensure that these policies align with the evolving needs of our community, creating a framework for a thriving and united mission.

Head of this department is the Executive Secretary who is second officer to the President and chief executive officer of the Conference. He serves under the direction of the executive committee and acts as vice chairman of the executive committee. He has a major responsibility in the co-administration and management of the Conference. This includes facilitating the developing and implementing strategic plans for fulfilling the mission of the Church in collaboration with the other Conference Officers and departmental directors. 

The Executive Secretary is chairperson of Audit and Membership Retention Committee. Pastor Francis Chibiya is the current Lusaka Conference Executive Secretary.

Key accountabilities of the Executive Secretary include:

1) Communicating, interpreting and providing guardianship of church policies
2) Record management and preservation
