SUMMER SCHOOL

The Summer School is organized once a year especially during the summer long vacation from regular schools.  This is another avenue to win souls for Christ.  The curriculum of the School is drawn in such a way that their students are adequately catered for both academically, socially and spiritually.  Their spiritual well being is of utmost importance to the church, hence this is considered in drawing their programs.  It is also part of our social responsibility to our community as the school is usually free.

RENEWAL/REVIVAL

On a quarterly basis the Christian Education organizes Renewal/Revival programs for the local church.  This is done with a view to keeping the fire of the gospel message continuously burning in the life of the believer. During this period Guests ministers are usually invited to teach the word of God and also minister in prayers for special needs in the lives of the people of God.  The result has always been tremendous blessings from the Lord on His people.
