Pastoral Action on HIV and AIDS

Training guidelines on the pastoral aspects of the HIV epidemic

Books 4 and 5 in the CALLED TO CARE series are based on 12 years of experience by the Organization of African Instituted Churches (OAIC), based in Nairobi, Kenya.  The author, Nicta Lubaale, is an ordained pastor who has been involved in faith-based and community responses to HIV and AIDS since 1991.  Since January 2007 he has been General Secretary of the OAIC.

Book no. 4, Pastoral Action on HIV and AIDS, contains guidelines for training pastors and lay church leaders in addressing the pastoral challenges of the AIDS epidemic.  These challenges affect churches in their teachings about sickness and healing, their forms of worship and their pastoral ministries.

Both books include case studies of the work of several African independent churches which, with the support of the OAIC, have responded in particularly innovative ways to the challenges of the AIDS epidemic.  These stories are drawn from OAIC member churches in Kenya and Uganda, but they are relevant to churches throughout sub-Saharan Africa, and beyond.

Both books contain numerous role plays, discussion guidelines, Biblical references, individual case studies and illustrations by African artists.
