Project # 2 - Old age home and frail care Centre
We aim to meet the needs of the people of our community. We plan to house and take care of some 400 senior citizens at the Abundant Life old age sanctuary. It will be in the form of a village with special facilities for the very frail. Professional stall will be employed and state of the art equipment will be the order of the day. Only the best for our old people.
We cannot deny the fact that there is a tremendous lack of top class facilities for our old aged people. The ultimate plan would be to have these old age villages all around our country. Can you imagine that? Abundant Life Centres around the nation looking out for the needs of the people, ministering and caring, not just speaking and debating but doing the job.
Project 3 # The Abundant Life Orphanage and Child Care Centre
Project # 4 - The crisis and care centre
We aim to meet the needs of the people of our community. With the crisis care centre we aim to rehabilitate drug addicts and alcoholics and any other substance abuse. We will als provide facilities for abused women and unwed mothers at the crisis centre.
In fact everything that has to do with the abused - we will provide a shelter and home for them. Jesus said if we give a cup of water in His name we do it to Him, we want to be there for those who need serious help.
Project # 5 - The Abundant Life Christian Academy Learning Centre
We plan to have a state of the art Christian school. this school will cater for children from pre-school through to Matriculation. It will be a school with a difference. By that we mean, not just any old school, but a place where children will be tested and trained according to their gifting.
Here they will be prepared for life where they can go into the community with not just another certificate but a diploma of excellence in learning. The Christian Academy will employ the best teachers in their field, no stone will be left unturned, as we pursue the best teaching and training for our children.
Although it will be a private school and school fees will be high, it will be our intention to have bursaries and sponsorships for the less privileged children, no child will be turned away. A school for children from all walks of life irrespective of race.
It must be stressed however that it will be Christian in it's vision. It will not be a school where there will be a mixture of religions. The gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ will be upheld at all times, so that Christian parents need not be concerned about us lowering our standards.
Project # 6 - The Abundant Life Christian University
A Christian University? What next? Well think about it. Where in Africa can you go for proper training in all fields and acquire your degree in an enviroment that is completely Christian.
With this complex we plan to offer degrees in all fields in particular Theology. The university will offer training for students that want to come in during the day, day students; Night time students; Correspondence students and students who will board in the dormitories that will be provided at a very nominal fee.
We cannot stress it enough as we declare that our vision is Christian in it's content. We cannot compromise our stand for the cross of Jesus Christ. This academy of learning will cater for people from all races.
Project # 7 - The Music & Arts Academy
There is a great need for the teaching and training for those who are involved in the arts. Drama, music, clowning and puppetry, praise and worship dance and art are all an intricate part of our lives
It is here where we will employ only the best musicians and artists to train all the budding young performers. A place where excellence will be our goal. It is from this academy that we will draw our staff for our productions that we will put on at our church.
Project # 8 - The Prayer Tower & Recording station
The Abundant Life Prayer Tower will function 24 hours a day 365 days a year. Prayer will be made for the community, the nation and the world.
Full time staff will be employed to pray here and requests will be received from around the globe. We are of the opinion that without serious prayer nothing will be resolved.
If anything this prayer tower will be the very centre of our entire complex. We believe that a serious commitment to prayer must be made.
Joined to the prayer tower will be the TV & Radio Stations which will be linked to prayer as the programmes are beamed out across all of Africa and thee rest of the world.
All the facilities that we make available to the public will be multi racial. We are convinced that this is what God is saying to us. We must stress however that it will be Christian in it's approach. Inter denominational but very much a place where Jesus will be Lord.
Project # 9 - The Christian Business Centre
For the first time in Africa, a Christian business complex. Where Christians can go and do their business and not have to plow their money inorganizations that don't support the gospel of Jesus Christ.
A place where there will be a Christian restaurant where no smoking and no alcohol will be consumed. Chemists, doctors, lawyers, and other professional people will be able to work in an enviroment that will enhance their beliefs.
In other words we plan to have a proper Christian shopping Mall that will cater just as any other secular mall will, the difference, will be that it is a place where Christians can meet and enjoy the presence of the Lord, even while they are shopping or doing some form of business.
Project # 10 - Missions and outreach statements
OUR MISSIONS AND OUTREACH STATEMENT:
We plan to build these very exciting venues in other parts of Africa. Can you imagine that! Christians becoming the salt of the earth just like Jesus said we should be.
No longer happy with the status quo - But rising up and taking the earth for Jesus Christ. Wouldn't that be some form of witness as to the changing power of the cross of Jesus Christ.
We also plan other projects such as:-
1). Getting involved with H.I.V Aids programmes.
2). Helping other organizations with a similar vision and purpose.
3). Assisting our government with Medical centres that can cater for people from all walks of life.
In a nut shell, we could go on and on indefinitely with all the exciting things that we have planned. Bottom line is this, with God all things are possible, what we need is a people who will rise up with us and believe Him for the Miracle of the - New ABUNDANT LIFE CHRISTIAN CENTRE.
