history of zetseat apostolic reformation church
In addition to the choir ministry what accelerated the growth and influence of the church was the students’ ministry. In the high school ministry the lives of many youngsters were transformed. Specially the student movements in Dandiiboru, Saint Joseph and later Cathedral Schools are iconic examples. And also, the college students ministry also helped the transformation of many lives.
Following the expansion of the ministry, they moved out from Cherqos area to a temporarily built building around Bulgaria area. During these times, the prophetic worship programs held in Exhibition Center, the following DVD albums of the choir and the prayer and intercession programs held for two consecutive years in Addis Ababa Stadium played a significant role in widening the sphere of influence of the church and building its international reputation.
One more area the ministry thrived in was the family revival. By receiving a guidance from God, the Apostle started teaching on marriage. And as God spoke to him and as never seen before within a few years hundreds of young men and women were blessed with successful marriages through wisdom and knowledge. This contributed a great deal to the growth of the church.
The church planted local churches during these times in two different towns namely Mekelle (2009) and Hossana (2010). Young missionaries were sent to these local churches; hence the souls of many young people were saved and the churches grew to be influential in those towns.
Due to the fast growth of the church and the need of a place that fits the vision, the church started fundraising and looking for places. In the first fundraising program, around 5 million ETB was collected from the few young people in the congregation. After searching for places, the church settled on the place where it is now. It was initially rented but by the conviction of buying it, it was built and made ready for service within a short period of time by the members’ incredible participation in the physical construction of the building.
Through continuous fundraising programs and the loan obtained from Berhan International Bank, the compound in which the worship hall is found was bought. In 2019, the church paid the bank loan completely and owned it fully. Currently the mother church has under her five local branches in Ethiopia and 3 fellowships abroad.
