The Evangelical Church of Winning All (ECWA) Goodnews Mpape has laid 900 seating capacity auditorium in Abuja.
While giving a brief background on how to complete the project with a reference to his Church, ECWA Gospel Maitama Kubwa, during the foundation laying ceremony, Guest speaker, Rev. Dr. Anthony Tade admonished the congregation to think of the possibility ahead of whatever they are doing, because it will come to reality.
The former Pastor of the ECWA Goodnews Mpape who took his message from Luke 19: 1-15 with a theme, “Part of the Lord and Others”, used Zaccheus who was a tax collector as an example of the message.
According to him, “Zaccheus was a wealthy man, despite his riches he could not see Jesus Christ through the crowd because of his challenges in height. Zaccheus climbed up a tree to see Jesus Christ because everyone wanted to see the popular savior for their wrong doings to be forgiven.
“Zaccheus knew he was a betrayal, corrupt and a sellout, he did all he could to see Jesus Christ ” he said.
Tade implored members to emulate Zaccheus’ wisdom, as despite his height challenges he used his wisdom to climb up a tree to be seen by Jesus Christ and ended up being recognized by Jesus Christ, questing the savior as well transformed.
He urged members to look for God by doing everything possible within their reach in order to be recognized by God.
Also speaking, the Project Committee Chairman, Elder Usman Umar, who gave details on the project, said the auditorium will have seven hundred seating capacity while the gallery will have two hundred seating capacity with pastoral, children class and car park as well as other facilities.
Speaking earlier, Pastor-In-Charge, Isaac Jacob who gave exaltation with Matthew 7:24 as reference, urged members to be part of the building project with cash or kind.
“I want you to be part of the project whether with cash or kind, I want everyone to be part of it, if you can’t contribute cash, join the manual work or support the workers in person”, he noted.
