About Bread of Life Church International

Written by Elizabeth Mpundu
Bread of Life Church International (BLCI) was born from a prophetic word on 13th September 1992 from a small Baptist Church with 120 members, situated at plot # 136 Chinyunyu Road in Lusaka's Emmasdale – Zambia.

The prophetic word “I am giving you thousands, you will possess the land and feed the people with the Bread of life” was later transformed to “Bringing thousands into the Kingdom” which was in line with the vision of the church.
However, the vision has now been transformed to 'Bringing Tens of Thousands into the Kingdom'.

The prophetic word has proved to be the power of God behind Bishop Joe Imakando’s work as the Church keeps on growing rapidly over the years from 120 to 9,500 members, whose composition includes people of different status.

The church cuts across different cultures, creed and colour, embracing nationalities from various countries in line with its international status.
To date, the church has established 101 mission churches in Zambia with 12 based in foreign countries. That includes DR Congo (2), South Africa (1) , Australia (2), Malawi (1), United Kingdom (2), Mozambique (1), Namibia (1), Tanzania (2). Apart from that, Bread of Life Church also runs a weekly television ministry called ‘Hour of Blessing’.

Bread of Life Church is also composed of various ministries, Home Based Care, School of Intercession, Primary and Basic Schools, School of ministry etc.

Due to an increase in the number of people, the church has built the Blessing Centre complex that will house approximately 10,000 people in the main auditorium. It will stand to be the largest single auditorium in the nation of Zambia.
The Blessing Centre is situated at the corner of Vubu and Lumumba roads in Emmasdale, Lusaka.
