*You are going to see something international, the standard of God’s vision -declares Pastor Kumuyi.
The Deeper Life Bible Church yesterday displayed a video of the ongoing Deeper Life Conference Centre Project at the ongoing 6 day program tagged ‘SOARING ABOVE’ and holding from Thursday 22 to Tuesday 27th April 2021.
The programme which is in two parts –
The Crusade and Youths Achievers’ Summit has been transmitted so far to the 19 Northern States, including locations within the FCT, via Satellite and Zoom.
The Deeper Life Conference Centre (DLCC) is situated at kilometre 42, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. DLCC is a minimum of 362.71 hectares or 895.89 acres.
According to the Church, Pastor W. F. Kumuyi’s vision of physical development as a factor of church growth gave birth to this project. The Centre has been described as the City of God’s people where men, women, youths and children will look up to heaven and receive spiritual help from God.
The design is somewhat similar to Salvation Ministries’ Cathedral though larger.
Some highlights are the ultra modern twin auditoria with 160,000 total capacity, a 6 Floor Tower Complex with 4 Wings, hostel accommodation for male and female members as well as banks, a library and Fuel Station among many others.
The adult auditoria are built to take 160,000 participants in a single programme.
Due to the size of the complex, two major dual carriage ways (about 2.25 kilometres each) from the gate run parallel to each other along West-East axis and are linked up at strategic points with dual carriage ways labelled alphabetically. The road network, sidewalk, bus stops, breakdown parks, and the car park will now be upgraded and are all designed to ease human and vehicular traffic congestion.
The adult auditoria are in-between the two major roads. Each of the 9 main adult auditoria fanned out from the sides of a hilly semi-circle rostrum, on a straight line, to a distance of about 250/ 50 meters (820/164 feet) at least. Church Gist. Thus, the auditoria are accessible from almost all sides in the complex. The youth camp is located to the right and the children camp to the left of the adult auditoria. The residential areas are located some distance away from the auditoria to preserve the serenity concomitant of wholesome and deeper communion with God.
Besides, the structural design of DLCC incorporates modern and wonderful facilities for the comfort of participants during programmes. This includes accommodation, water treatment/boreholes, sewage treatment plant, cafeteria, kitchen, satellite sales points, exhibition centre, and welfare block, communication tower/outfit and electricity. For instance, power is supplied through electrical conduit for both internal and external electrification. The streetlights in the conference centre make it a beautiful city. There are stand-by power generating sets equipped with Auto Mains Failure (AMF) mechanisms. It is intended that when the project is completed‚ a bank, fuel dump, library, etc would also be located at different points for the benefits of participants.
Speaking as recently as Easter Retreat in April 2019, Pastor Kumuyi spoke to members on the need to develop it from the present state to an ultra modern facility including a minimum of 3 star hotel standard for all members. Church Gist.He admonished members to give towards the project, saying it will cost billions of naira from members to complete the project.
Speaking, he said
…..”Our leaders all over the world met recently. They came over here and they went around this complex. They went everywhere, and then they came back to have a meeting together. And they said all of us, we want to raise this Deeper Life Conference Center to an international standard. And we are planning. We are planning for hundreds of thousands even more than those who are here and that everyone will have at least a three-star hotel accommodation. And you will not be on the side of the road, or there or there. You have not seen anything at the DLCC here. And they said we have a DLCC or we are going to have a DLCC of God’s own vision and we make that our own vision and it becomes something international. There is one prayer I’m praying for you. Are you ready? I said there is one prayer I am praying for you. Are you ready? You will not die before that time [Amen]. Your eyes have seen the beginning of DLCC, you will remain alive [Amen]. Church Gist.Every sickness, every disease, every infirmity that will knock at your door before this DLCC is completed I command come out in Jesus name. You have seen DLCC when it was, you know just like this. You will see something. Something international. Accommodation- all those tents there, they call it white house, they call it green house, they call it a beautiful house we will push them aside. And within a short time you are going to see something international. We’ll have accommodation for our ministers, accommodation for our workers, accommodation for our newcomers, accommodation for our guests, accommodation for international people, and it’s going to be a great thing in Jesus name [Amen]. But now, where will the money come from? Are we going to go to the cement industry and say Deeper Life is building DLCC donate cement, donate iron, donate this and donate that? Where will the money come from? The money will come from you. Where are you? I say where are you? If you don’t have any job now because of this DLCC, I proclaim in your life, job come in Jesus name [Amen]. For the sake of the Lord and for the sake of this edifice we want to build, a new level of prosperity will come your life [Amen]. A new level of inheritance will come your life [Amen]. All the people that are owing you here and there for the benefit of proclaiming the gospel here internationally, all those people will pay you in Jesus name [Amen]. Where your prosperity is hiding, the Lord will open the door, he will supply all our needs in Jesus name. We are not talking of looking for millions, we are talking of billions. But that billion will come [Amen]. I said it will come [Amen]. In our districts, in our groups, our leaders will be talking to us and you will even beyond what you have now, you are going to give, in Jesus name. The Lord will prosper you [Amen]. I see that we even have to extend now our car pack over here because those who have been walking and walking on their bare feet you will stay before your steering and you will drive into this camp [Amen] and our newcomers you are not left out of this. You have become part of us now, the Lord will enrich you and the Lord will bless you and everyone we are going to be part of this in Jesus name [Amen]. Church Gist.Why don’t you just raise your voice to the Lord on this particular issue, I’ll be part of this, I’ll be part of this, I’ll be part of this, I’ll be part of this, I’ll give, not just thousands, I will give millions, millions, millions . I will give cheerfully, I will give wholeheartedly, I will give, I will give, you will give and the Lord will prosper you. And then not only are you are going to see a Deeper Life Christian Centre of international standard on this end, God will give you mansions in Heaven” he concluded.
