This dissertation offers a biblical and practical response to the issue of divorced pastors in ministry in Kawama compound of Ndola in Zambia. The research focused on examining how the Zambian church should respond to divorced pastors in ministry. I have argued that, in as much as God hates divorce and His idea for marriage is permanence – due to the hardness of the human heart and the brokenness of this world, there are biblical parameters for divorce.
