In 2015, JESUS Film teams from Zambia South and Zambia Copperbelt districts joined forces and planted a Nazarene Church in Kapiri Mposhi town, which is located between the Copperbelt Province and Lusaka Province. It is a growing community that had never had a Nazarene church before. The young church met in school classrooms for three years until pandemic restrictions prevented them from using the school.
The church, acting on faith, purchased a plot of land and built a simple structure using their own resources.
Soon after, a generous donor helped to significantly advance the project, contributing towards the foundation, walls and a roof. As one leader put it, the church has moved from a point of desperation, with no place to meet, to hope and great joy!
The completed building will serve as a center for many types of ministry, including:
- Regular church gatherings and worship services
- Extension education for pastors and leaders
- Ministry to children, youth and adults
The progress on this building has been steady, and the Lord has been faithful! In 2020 the foundation had been completed, and by June 2021, the main walls were going up, which were completed by November. (Photo from October 2021.)
The next stage is plaster, paint, and finish work to complete the structure. The church eagerly awaits the day when this new building can serve as a valuable tool in ministry.
Add your gift now to support our brothers and sisters in the Kapiri Mposhi Church of the Nazarene as they work to complete this building, and pray for their ongoing ministry to their community.
