The Power of Gospel Church opened its doors for worship on October 19, 2014. The passion and vision of the church were to reach the lost and devotedly advance the Kingdom of God on earth wholeheartedly. As with most steps of faith, establishing a new Oromo-speaking church was not easy as there were other Afaan-Oromo-speaking churches in the Minneapolis area. The decision to start this church, although difficult, was necessary. It was clear that I needed to respond with ‘yes’ to the call of God and fulfill the deep burning hunger to proclaim the Gospel at all costs.
When the Power of Gospel church was first established, there were just 21 people. Many people said we were destined to fail, but this wasn’t about a group of people; it was about what God wanted to do through this church. Starting this church was not about what other Oromo-speaking churches were doing or not doing in the surrounding area. It was about proclaiming the Good News, starting with the Oromo people and to all the world’s nations through the vision that God gave.
The Power of Gospel church, from the very day it opened its doors, was all about the Kingdom! We relied on the supernatural enabling of God to begin the work he called us to do. Within the first two months of our start, the Power of Gospel Church began the television ministry that reaches over 18 million people weekly in East Africa and the Middle East. We knew this was a tool God wanted to use to reach his people. Financially this was a huge undertaking. However, we know when the Lord sends, He also provides. We were beyond ecstatic when we instantly began to hear testimonies from Ethiopia and the Middle East, where it is nearly impossible to find a bible-based church.
Shortly after starting the Television ministry, the vision for our Prison Ministry was born. The Holy Spirit directed us to reach impoverished prisoners that were hopeless and helpless in Ethiopia. We also began planting churches in remote villages of Ethiopia. We now have a total of 4 churches. As you can see, God is ever expanding our vision and multiplying His grace to help us reach near and far.
The formation of the Power of Gospel Church was the handiwork of God. The bible tells us not to despise the day of small beginnings! Looking back at October of 2014, we would have never thought it would be possible to accomplish all of this. Indeed, He who called us is faithful! We now have a vibrant church family that is being equipped consistently through daily inspirational email teachings called ‘Mana’, weekly cell group meetings along with dedicated prayer and teaching times. The Word of God is being poured out among us with a fresh revelation and yoke-breaking anointing.
We know that there are still countless souls to win and many more territories to expand. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us— We will pull down strongholds and proclaim FREEDOM to the captives!
