Organisation of the CDJ

SaltMalawi in the UK exists to support the work of the Malawi-based Church of the Disciples of Jesus by sending grants from UK donations. SaltMalawi also provides a source of support, skills, resources and advice through the trustees of the Church in Malawi. SaltMalawi will also support UK visitors bringing their skills and encouragement to the team in Malawi. The Church of the Disciples of Jesus is a registered Religious Organisation in Malawi. Each of its 4 trustees is responsible for the Church’s work in one of its 4 regional groups of (currently 51) local churches across Malawi and neighbouring Mozambique. Each trustee is supported in their local area by two further regional church leaders. So across the country the Church is developing a leadership team of 12, working with and through local leaders in every Church gathering.

Operating Structure

The Church of the Disciples of Jesus is registered with the Malawian Government. Her trustees are:

  • John Seda (Chair of Trustees)

A significant part of the work of this church operates under the title 'The Joseph Project', which is separately registered in the Dedza district as a Faith Based Organisation. The work of the Joseph Project seeks to demonstrate the active love and compassion of Christ in a practical way. This is the caring work referred to in paragraph (8) of the Mission Statement.
