The most dramatic changes in one’s life will come from God’s initiative. We therefore invite you tofellowship with us (in any of the campus- Bosso/Gidan Kwano). Sunday worship experience is always an experience with the Master. On Tuesday(Bible Study), brethren gather together to learn at the master feet for the fresh supply of bread (God’s word) where biblical truths and principles are explored for moulding people into what God has ordained to be as it is in the beginning. Friday (Prayer meeting) is a moment of breaking through with God in prayer. God has initiated a call to you on his purpose and when you are going where God is going, you will get a free ride. We trust God to guide your steps and show you where to give your life away not only in serving the master but also in affect your generation for global & positive impacts. .
