My names are James Lungu, a reverend, researcher, professional counsellor as well as an advocate for human rights and promotion of peace. I am married to Emelly, and we have three boys namely: Joel, Walinase and Ezra. I did my Bachelors of Theology at Stellenbosch University (B.Th.), from 2010-2013 I also did my Masters of Theology with the specialisation in Gender, Health and Theology, from 2014-2015 I am currently pursuing my PhD at the University of KwaZulu Natal, with a focus on Disability Studies, through the sponsorship of Council for World Missions.
I have been serving as an ordained minister of word and sacrament in the Uniting Presbyterian Church in Zambia for a period of 7 years. I did part-time lecturing at the University of Zambia in ‘Gender & Research Development’ as well as ‘Gender & Health’ modules. I carried out projects and participated in workshops with organisations such as DREAMS, PATH, USAIDS, ZCHPP, DETTE, IPAS and CIRCLES OF HOPE.
My hobbies are researching, writing, socialising with other people, singing and reaching out to vulnerable individuals and groups by being a voice to the voiceless.
