Leaders from the Christian Conference of Asia have concluded five days of celebrations in Indonesia for their fiftieth year as a grouping with one leader calling for stepped-up efforts by churches to fight corruption and nepotism in the region. “The celebrations were not just about the past; they were also a time to look to the future and to identify new opportunities to equip the churches to venture into ministries unique and decisive in the Asian context,” said Prawate Khid-arn, general secretary of the conference.
