International Christian Centre began as a dream that God placed in the hearts of men and women of faith who have gone before us. What started with a congregation of 300 in 1983 has multiplied to a congregation of about 3,000 currently. With Raising Godly Generations being our vision guide over the years, we have seen God expand our tent with vibrant children’s, teens and adult ministries.
In 2019, we sensed God calling us to birth new dreams and visions as He gave us Isaiah 54:2-5
“Enlarge the place of your tent,
stretch your tent curtains wide,
do not hold back;
lengthen your cords,
strengthen your stakes.
For you will spread out to the right and to the left;
your descendants will dispossess nations
and settle in their desolate cities.
“Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame.
Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated.
You will forget the shame of your youth
and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood.
For your Maker is your husband—
the Lord Almighty is his name—
the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer;
He is called the God of all the earth.
This new calling is an invitation to not only walk in intimacy and obedience with God but an invitation to growth, expansion and increase through ALL IN our personal and corporate call as we give ourselves over to the purposes of God.
The Dream Centre is part of this invitation to us as a church. Over the years as we have grown, we have been stretched in our facilities capacity with our Next Gen (Children’s)Ministry being one that has been largely affected. The Dream Centre is a birthing of a dream where our children will be catered to holistically in a functional and beautiful building.
The Dream Centre is phase 1 of the project and is expected to take 24 months, with phase 2 set to expand the Main Sanctuary to accommodate the growth in numbers in the years to come.
The International Christian Centre is all about Raising Godly Generations. Over the years we have trusted God for the increase which He has graciously favoured us with. As with any growth, there comes a stretching and a need to increase capacity. This stretch led to the birth of a dream where our children would have a facility that would cater to both their physical and spiritual needs hence the name “Dream Centre”.
The Dream Centre will be located at the current Teens and Rockers banda. Teens and Rockers will be relocated to alternative spaces during the duration of the project.
We hope to start in the 3rd quarter (October) of 2022. We are currently in the process of acquiring building permits and approvals from relevant authorities.
The Dream Centre will cater for ages 4 to 18 while ages 0 -3 will be catered for in the main sanctuary along with parents, guardians or caregivers.
The Dream Centre will cater for children with special needs with a sensory room in partnership with Champions Club, a special needs ministry from Lakewood Church USA. It will be the first Champions Club in Kenya!
The Dream Centre will occupy 8 floors with the different amenities listed below :
