BIC bishop to lead Mennonite World Conference

During the March mini-assembly of Mennonite World Conference (MWC), Danisa Ndlovu, bishop of the Zimbabwe BIC Church, was named president-elect of the interdenominational Anabaptist organization.

In addition to his ministry as a BIC bishop, Ndlovu currently serves as vice-president of MWC. His term of presidency will begin in 2009, and will allow him to continue to extend his thoughtful leadership beyond the work of the Brethren in Christ. Ndlovu will succeed the current president, Nancy Heisey, who also came to MWC from the Brethren in Christ.

Ndlovu has played a variety of critical roles in the BIC Church since 1978, including evangelist, youth worker, lecturer at Ekuphileni Bible Institute, as well as administrative positions within the Zimbabwe BIC Church.

Denominational leaders are proud to have Ndlovu assume the presidency of MWC. “Danisa is a gracious, wise, articulate, and effective leader among the BIC worldwide,” says Warren Hoffman, moderator. “It is exciting to have him represent the BIC in this worldwide forum.”
