The vision of the church is to build relationships and change lives in the numerous poor neighborhoods within communities in a given surrounding.
God’s vision is to empower His servants within the church, the opportunity to serve the poor. Also, the Church’s vision is to empower the children of God in neighborhoods to serve and give back within their communities.
ECG vision includes planting new church’s, training pastors, teaching the gospel of God, building homes and church’s, sponsoring children to school, feeding breakfast to children each morning, offering periodic health and dental clinics, plus numerous other important service offerings to community members. Amazingly, Giyani branch is on course and in-line with this vision.
Pastor Paul Banda, the resident minister spoke to us about how God has graced him. “The church has advanced at a supersonic speed despite earlier challenges. I’m thankful to my spiritual father, Major 1 for giving me the grace to serve under him. God of Major 1 has given us a very big land for church construction and expansion. With over 4,000 members of Giyani, the sky is the limit as we see God’s grace unfolding day in and out.”
“I can say that we are the biggest church gathering in an area with more than 130 denominations. I thank all the sons and daughters of Major 1 who have enormously contributed to the construction of a modern building with 3,500 seating capacity. The next building we are embarking on is the ECG School and dispensary.” said Pastor Paul.
It must be everyone’s desire to help build communities by constructing houses, schools, hospitals, and churches. ECG Giyani and Pastor Paul have projects to provide shelter for families who are less privileged, education opportunities to help break the cycle of poverty, facilities for physical and spiritual healing, and places to build up the body of Christ.
For so long now, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, the leader and founder of ECG has emphasized the need to help the needy as he demonstrates the same through his ‘Beacon of Hope’ program.
