Zambia, a landlocked nation with 8 neighboring countries has a population of over 13 million people. In 1993, the late President Dr. Fredrick Chiluba, declared Zambia as a Christian Nation. However the Christians are only concentrated in the urban centers leaving many regions of the nation without the church.
Victory Churches Intl Zambia was born when Pastor Kenneth Chenga, the National Director honored the invitation of the Hills to attend the Leadership Conference in Kisumu, Kenya in 2012. Pastor Kenneth was greatly impacted at the Africa Conference and came home to share the VICTORY 'HEART BEAT' of Leadership Training, Church Planting and World Missions.
Since then the Victory Apostolic/Prophetic Movement has planted and grown 8 churches in 3 regions, with an average attendance of 200 souls in each church.
P. Kenneth and the VCI Zambia National Board have a great vision for the next 7 years. By 2020 they want to see more than 100 leaders trained, 500 churches planted, 10 regional representatives and 100,000 souls saved.
In November, P. Paul Juss visited the nation for National Leaders Conference and to help plant a new Victory Church in Lusaka.
Soon, P. Kenneth will hand over the 3 churches in Solwezi and relocate to Ndola to establish a National Headquarters and Bible College. This will establish a strong base from which they will be able to reach all of Zambia.
P. Paul Juss is also developing the idea of a “church in a can”, which would include a tent, chairs and a sound system. This will be used to help start a church and for outreach to help grow Victory Churches of Zambia. This could be a fantastic idea to help Victory Churches expand not only in Zambia but into many other nations! We need more ideas like this!
Please pray for:
- New territories to be opened for church planting
- Land & resources for the establishment of the headquarters & Bible College in Lusaka.
- The building of an orphanage, school, feeding center, and life skills training center.
- The “church in a can” project, for outreaches and crusades to help build VCI Zambia.
