Regional Liaison For South Africa

Doug Tilton works with the South African Council of Churches (SACC) and is regional liaison for southern Africa. He has been under appointment since 1992. The SACC was one of the bodies at the forefront of the struggle against apartheid and for democracy in South Africa. The historic negotiated settlement that cleared the way for the country's first democratic elections in 1994 marked an important victory in the struggle for political rights. Much of their work now focuses on health and community development. Roughly half of the country's 36 million Christians are affiliated with SACC member churches.
