MUSHAYAVANHU, David  y  DUNCAN, Graham A.. The spiritual weakness of churches founded by Western missionaries: The cause of the rise of Africa Independent Churches in Zimbabwe with special reference to the Uniting Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.35, n.1, pp.1-6. ISSN 2074-7705.

The Presbytery of Zimbabwe (POZ) of the Uniting Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa (UPCSA) has been affected by a drastic exodus of members to African Independent Churches, which is taking advantage of its spiritual weaknesses in its missional endeavour. The spiritual weaknesses which the people of the POZ experiences are a product of the evangelical mode of mission in Zimbabwean society and the failure by both foreign and local personnel to contextualise the Good News. This article considers the possibility of correcting this state of affairs. The central issue addressed is how to understand the context and achieve the necessary change.
