This is the first time the council has been separately recognised under the PNG Church-State Partnership Program.
Chairman of PNG Churches Council, Bishop Denny Brag Guka, thanked the government and the ministry for the recognition.
He said with the church providing the spiritual strength and the government the resources, the country can be transformed.
It’s about partnership, honesty, commitment with passion, we can work.
He said the CC’s priority now is the establishment of the provincial council of churches, which the new Minister, Soroi Eoe, alluded to.
