We believe that in our life time, God has entrusted us with a project to build Him a House of worship, a structure that will reflect His beauty and glory.

The facility by the grace of God will influence and impact the nation of Zambia and beyond. It will be a training ground for a new breed of Christians and leaders. In addition it will be a place to feed the multitudes with the word of God, the ark of salvation, a store house for the needy, a healing balm for the sick, a house of prayer, a counseling centre for the hurting and broken hearted.

By the grace of God the building project has passed the half way stage. We are almost there, having completed the foundation, the first floor slab concrete and the columns.

Blessing Centre begins to take shape

The work at the Blessing Centre site has reached a very advanced stage as the first truss over the pulpit area was laid on Wednesday 21st April 2010. The truss is a staggering 10 tons and has a span of 32 meters. It took a 50 ton crane to hoist it, with this truss now on the Blessing Centre it has signified the start of the roofing stage.
