The Minister for Presidency, Milly Babalanda has asked pastors to always preach the wealth creation gospel to their followers during church services.

While attending the consecration of Bishop Steven Kyamaggwa and 10 other pastors at Hope Worship Centre Church in Mukono Central division, Babalanda said the people should find answers to some of the livelihood problems when they go to churches.

"As pastors ensure your followers don't remain in poverty but find church a place to find both spiritual and physical aspirations. You should preach to them the gospel of taking part in government programs such as Parish Development Model, Emyooga, skilling, youth livelihoods and  Women Empowerment funds among others,"Babalanda said.

She said  Pentecostal pastors should tap into such programs to uplift their people out of biting poverty

"Churches are sanctuaries for people who have lost hope and have lots of earthly challenges especially their physical needs. As pastors, you should provide them answers to their problems."

The minister condemned rampant corruption and land grabbing in the country driven by greed of Godless people, noting that most of their cases of land grabbing have been reported to her office and challenged different leaders to take a strong stand against such practices.

Babalanda lauded President Museveni for ensuring freedom of worship for all religions.

She said church leaders should play a bigger role in shaping a value driven society where people are restrained from bad practices such as homosexuality, drug abuse, laziness, abusive and hateful youth on social media among others.

Deputy resident district commissioner for Mukono, Mike Ssegawa, lauded Minister Babalanda for promoting a value-based society and Christian values in government.

Apostle Steven Kyamaggwa who founded his Church 14 years ago with his wife Deborah, thanked President Museveni for the appointment of the pro-people leader in Minister Babalanda, and more that 100 pastors prayed for Minister Babalanda to find more favor before her Boss, President Museveni and people she works with.

The minister contributed a million shillings towards church development projects.
