He served as a missionary in Zambia from 1956-1969 and was elected as the first President of the United Church of Zambia. He became known for his passionate and outspoken views on political and social issues and was a close friend of President Kenneth Kaunda, with whom he worked in the negotiations for Zambia's independence.
