I am excited to start the year with an article on some work that is focused on changing lives and establishing humanity in dominance and destiny mustering.
Bethel Christian fellowship is a church that has been in existence in Kgubetswana since 24 October 2011. The church focuses on building communities ruled by love. It also emphasises the importance of family values, where a family is made up of a father, mother and children; all staying together in harmony.
Since its birth, Bethel has hosted five international conferences, four of them under the brand TTiG, which stands for Total Trust in God. The TTiG conferences have become a typical pilgrimage, with participants coming from as far as Virginia, Potchefstroom, Klerksdorp, Johannesburg, and Zimbabwe.
Last year’s TTiG conference was held from 7 October to 11 October at Kgubetswana Community Hall. Restaurant owners, shop oowners and lodges benefited from the traffic that came, just for TTiG. The church is thus benefiting the business sector also, in Clarens.
Bethel is growing and the founding pastor, Tawanda Muviyi has written the letter below, as the church focuses on making more impact in the community:
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our ministry has been moving from glory to glory since its inception in October 2011, growing slowly in terms of numbers but significantly fast spiritually. We have gone through challenges but our God has proven bigger than all of them, we came out victorious.
For some time now we have been based on a temporary premise inside one of the congregant’s property, a 7m X 4.5m structure often very hot in summer and very cold in winter. By God’s grace we have just acquired an empty stand (65 Kgubetswana) where we can build a more suitable structure. Our intention therefore is to build such structure that will be able to accommodate the church as well as a day care centre/preschool for children.
The structure will be a 15m X 9m with a steel framework covered with wooden boards and roofed with zinc sheets. We have a few zinc sheets that we bought last year that will cover a third of the roof as well as some steel poles.
We are therefore extending an invitation to friends and partners of Bethel Christian Fellowship (and those that desire to be part of what God is doing) to contribute as the Spirit leads to the accomplishment of this vision. You are welcome to pay money directly to our suppliers for easy accountability, or give in kind should you have any of the listed items. Please note that we appreciate even used things such as steel poles, zinc sheets, wood etc.
Yours in Christ
