PAG is structured under 24 Pastorates, 515 Assemblies headed by Assembly and Associate church Pastors. The community Development efforts in PAG Started in early 1990’s as an initiative by individual PAG Pastorates. The main driving force was to establish Holistic Ministry for communities traumatized by armed conflict, HIV/AIDS, drought and other natural calamities. PAG since then registered significant success in community transformation and restoration of hope in the individual lives
