This dissertation reflects on the problem of the Evangelical Lutheran church in Southern Africa. In my deliberations I have indicated that, there is a gap that needs to be closed, since the Evangelical Lutheran missionaries have left the Country. When (ELCSA) Evangelical Lutheran church in Southern Africa, took over the church leadership in 1972. We thought that, the local church leadership was matured enough, to lead the church and confront the challenges of the day. On my assessment and research, I have discovered that, the problems within the Evangelical Lutheran church are growing day by day, at some stage is even worse. My other concern is that, since missionaries left the use of comprehensive mission (Kerygma; Diakonia, Leitorgia and Koinonia).Comprehensive mission is the backbone of the church, once you missed it, you have failed the church. In my conclusion, I would like to say, the church has a future provided if it can treat these challenges in a positive manner.
