Help Build A Brighter Future For Those Who Worship The Lord

Go up to the hills and bring wood and build the house, that I may take pleasure in it and that I may be glorified, says the Lord. Haggai 1:8

Demolition

Demolition of the Old Structure

Once an established church with a building and a congregation has been identified, we gather information, determine the condition of the existing structure and present our findings for consideration. If the church structure budget is approved and money is released for the work, our team starts the Demolition of the old structure. The old structure is brought down, the land is cleared and the property is ready for a new structure. The new church structure will be built in the same location.

Construction & Framing

The materials used in this process are wood poles, iron sheets(32g), and nails.

The measurements of the new structure are 26 ft X 40 ft. The construction crew takes measurements of the length, width, and diagonals. Holes are dug 5 ft. apart and wood posts are placed and cemented in.

Once the cement has cured, the church walls are constructed using wooden poles. The church’s basic four-wall structure is constructed by joining the poles with nails. After the walls are built and secure, the roof trusses are constructed on-site with wood poles and then carefully raised and positioned to form the roof structure. Accuracy is the key factor in the entire process. Once the framing is done, the next process is fixing the iron sheets as the walls of the church.

Construction
Concrete/Foundation

Concrete & Foundation

The materials used in this process are ballast, sand, cement, and water.

Once the church structure construction is done, the next step is floor work.

The Ballast is a sand and coarse gravel mix. The Water is used to mix the cement and ballast. A consistent, smooth concrete is the result. This procedure is more difficult than it appears. Concrete is very sensitive to the ratio of ballast, cement, and water.

We divide the floor work into two sections:

a) The concrete floor – We start by mixing the ballast sand and cement at a ratio of 3:3:1 respectively. The first thing the crew does is to determine the amount of concrete that is needed in terms of volume. This is called the dry volume. Dry Volume is a smaller volume compared to wet mixed concrete. The process of mixing concrete elements and placing them is called casting. The concrete is mixed with enough water so that it flows. The sand/smooth aggregate allows for bonding between the fine cement particles and the bigger aggregates forming the hard concrete for the whole church floor. The crews make sure that the entire room is leveled and then it’s left to dry.

b) The floor smoothing and finishing– The materials used are sand, cement, and water at a ratio of 3:1, respectively. This mixture is applied to the new concrete floor. Smoothing is done and finally, a cement paste is smeared on the entire floor for a fine finishing surface and look.

Electrical & Lighting

The materials needed are electric bulbs, wires, cable clips, air fans, electric appliances, etc.

We only use qualified electricians on all our projects. The first step is to do the wiring of the whole church. The electrical wiring is done first. There will be lights, ceiling fans, and outlets. A mini-panel and breakers are installed with power. The finished wiring is done with boxes installed for each device. The lights and outlets are wired and the ceiling fans are installed and their switches. Everything is tested and approved as ready for use in the new church building.

Painting

Painting

The materials needed for this procedure are gloss paints, hand brushes, and masking tapes.

After the church construction is completed, the next step is to paint the outside walls of the church building. The painting is done by professionals. The walls are cleaned and the first coat of paint is applied. After the paint has dried, a second coat is applied. The third and final coat gives the church a clean and clear finished look.

Furnishing

The church members do the inside furnishing of the church. Letting them express their ideas gives everyone a feeling of being involved in the building of their church as well as instilling pride in their house of worship.

Furniture
Food

Food Blessing & Distribution

We normally do food distribution to the church members who are financially challenged. We distribute food items such as maize flour, wheat flour, rice, sugar, cooking oil, and soaps. Depending on the size of the church population and the funds allocated to that church for food distribution, we buy the food items and distribute them directly to the church members. We have seen a very positive response and appreciation from the church members.
