The level of underdevelopment in Ayamelum local government area of Anambra state calls for urgent attention. More worrisome is the fact that no community in the local council can presently boast of average presence of basic social amenities such as road, electricity, portable water, and others. It seems that successive state governments and other leaders in the area have abandoned the people to their fate as if their tax does not contribute substantially to the state resources. However, it is the opinion of the present researcher that the church has been on the fore front in providing sustainable community development from the beginning of the Christian faith. The data used in the study was analyzed using the phenomenological tool. The researcher discovered that enough sensitization has not been made to draw the attention of the authorities especially the state government to the sorry state of affairs in the local government and the need for them to rise up to their responsibilities for the betterment of the area. The study therefore recommends that the church steps out to challenge both the state and local authorities into action since most of them are members of one church or the other including the Anglican church.
