Ecclesia is the original word for Church. It means congregation or gathering of people. In big cities, we can see that many churches have been blessed tremendously. They have beautiful buildings with great facilities. On the other hand, many others in the slump areas are not in good condition. Their buildings are badly damaged, some even almost collapsing. From the scripture we know that our abundance is to meet the needs of other people (2 Cor 8:14). Therefore Anugrah Ministries have come up with Church MakeOver (CMO) program to bless those churches in need.
When a church building is properly established, then so many things can be done. Just like the word Ecclesia, it is beyond the building itself. Not only do we bless the pastor, his ministry and his congregation, but also the city and region where they are in. Just like in the Bible time, wherever there was a church, it would become a distribution centre from God to His people. Therefore, when the church is blessed, so are the people around it.
Since 2008, when we launched this program, so many churches have been blessed. Regardless of their locations and denominations, many have been reached out. Every time we deploy the program in those churches, we found out that some of them have actually been praying for their breakthrough for five or even ten years. The truth of the matter is God uses the Church MakeOver program as a vehicle to deliver their miracles. So many people are being involved behind the scene, and you can also be a part of this movement. Click to become partners in Church MakeOver program.
