And School of ministry Principal Reverend Teddy Kamfwa (above) thanked God for grace that He has put on the School of ministry over the years. In accordance with the great commission of preaching the gospel to all men making them disciples, School has been an effective tool in the building of a strong and vibrant church as it seeks to uphold the word of God and prepare effective leaders.
So far 180 students have graduated from the school of ministry and are serving in various capacities in the church and throughout the country. However, the school faces a few challenges as it lack a library to enable students do adequate research and classes are only held twice a week in the evening. The good news is that the Blessing Centre is setting up a residential school with all necessary facilities that will bring an increase in attendance and quality of the school.

Bishop Joe Imakando re launched the men of Destiny ministry on Sunday 14th June. Speaking to the men of the church, Bishop qouted from Genesis 1:26, Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’
Man is at the center of God’s creation
Have dominion. The Bishop observed that if the men were united, we could have built the Blessing Centre faster than we are doing.
Man is Gods crown of creation
After God created everything He prepared man for the purpose of ruling and to have fellowship with Him. God created man first and out of him he formed the woman. Jesus also came as man. Until men take their place there will be no dominion.
The Devils strategy is to cut man from God
• The devil has made man to relax from their position, this has made man to stay away from church
• Men are the heads of households when you cut off the head there is no direction.
- The enemy will keep us apart (cut us off from fellowship with others). This will make us vulnerable and ineffective
What Does God want men to do?
• Rule: You can’t rule by remote control you have to be present
-God wants us to exercise our dominion.
Fellowship strengthens “Iron sharpens Iron”
-Identifying men with skills and special abilities then connecting with one another
-Be our Brothers keeper (Others have fallen on the way but we have not gone back to lift them)
-We must unite and fight the Devil as one; we must have the desire to move forward
A relevant man to man programme will only be possible when we stand up and take our place in the church as the heads.
Some of the programs to be under taken:
1. Share ideas: professionally, personally and spiritually
2. Recreation: Sports, camping, fishing, game viewing
