School of Ministry 13th Graduation

Written by

Bread of life church International on Sunday 4th September 2011 held the 13th School of ministry graduation were 21 students graduated. This was after under going 1 year training. The School prepares men and women for effective work and ministry in the Lords vineyard, as it equips and makes them able leaders.

Speaking during the graduation ceremony, Presiding Bishop Joe Imakando (above), preached a message entitled, 'Growing into your ministry', Psalm 78:70-72. The Bishop emphasized that the graduating students should be faithful, how?

  • Accept your present calling. Do not despise the small beginnings.
  • Be diligent in your calling
  • Faithfulness leads to increased opportunities. God will test you with the little to see how faithful you will be. If not it will be taken away, Luke 16.10-12. If you are faithful God will promote you. You need to love people, be compassionate and touch them will it work well. Draw strength from God, failure to be faithful will delay your progress.
God is looking for people who are FAT = Faithful, Available and Teachable, concluded the Bishop.

This year’s graduation was held during the Word Explosion Conference. Bishop Joe Imakando was on hand to give certificates to the graduating students. Lewis Mumbi (above) scoped the best student award.


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.


Mrs Mbuzi (l)

Before she joined the school of Ministry she didn’t know how to effectively minister and preach the word of God, after the school of ministry she now has an understanding of how to go about the work of God, she has ministered too many effectively.

Other students who used to leave tasks unfinished learned to finish them on time and they are now able leaders.

Responding to a Leader’s Death

Written by
Deuteronomy 34:5-12, Joshua 1:1-3
Following the storm that Zambia had passed through after the death of Republican President Dr. Levy Patrick Mwanawasa SC. In this sermon Bishop Imakando encouraged us with a prophetic word of hope and uplift that God was going to give another great leader to the nation of Zambia.
“When Moses died, he was replaced by Joshua.
Moses took the children of Israel out of Egypt, and when he died, God appointed Joshua to usher them into the promised land. Each phase of development has a new leader. It is a point of transition. We may have lost our President, but God has already prepared a replacement.
God will raise another great leader to take us to another level. There is a Joshua generation preparing to take over the reigns of power in Zambia. As we mourn let us mourn as those with hope. Let us be comforted that the late president Mwanawasa is with the Lord.
Let us celebrate his life because he was a gift to Zambia. People of God don’t be afraid, because God has a replacement for us. It’s now time for Joshua to take over the promised land".

Re Launch of Men of Destiny

Written by

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
3. Teaching the youths (life skills, counselling)
4. Assist fellow men get back on their feet (failed business, school, and retirees)
5. Special workshops and seminars by experts in various fields

A new leadership committee was constituted with a mandate to set the Men of Destiny ministry on the move.
List of new office bearers
