During the ceremony Colonel Ian Swan and Colonel Wendy Swan of the Church said induction of Colonel Alfred Banda as commander for Malawi territory is quite significant because Banda has been charged with a big responsibility to lead "the Church towards salvation of people."
General Secretary of Evangelical Association of Malawi Reverend Francis Mkandawire said much as Government is clearing the rubble in public service so be it in the church as there are divisions arising in there due to allegiance to partisan politics.
He said: " As a church we have people belonging to different political parties so let's avoid these unnecessary divisions. Let's unite and support Government."
The Malawi leader read the Bible in Chichewa a scripture portion from John.17: 17-26.
