PRETORIA– The Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) church has been growing rapidly in South Africa over the past few years under the leadership of Prophet Shepherd Bushiri. The church has over 178 branches across the globe and millions of congregants.
In 2017, a few students from various Universities in South Africa launched ECG Campus Ministries starting from University of Pretoria, Tshwane University of Technology and Sefako Makgato health science university. Today, Campus Ministries have been launched in almost all the universities in different provinces, with the likes of University of Johannesburg, University of Limpopo, UFS, Wits and many more joining in. Students gather every Thursday in their respective campuses to share the word of God.
This Thursday 25th, ECG Campus Ministries will be having a Grand opening service for the 2nd semester at Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) Main Campus. Students from various universities are expected to gather for this fire burning event that will be Graced by Bafana Bafana star Tiyani ‘Shuga’ Mabunda.
Mabunda is not only a football player but also a Man of God full of wisdom. He is a son of Major1 and has been assigned by both Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and Prophetess Mary to carry the mandate of winning souls . Mabunda has been preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world including in the soccer fields. He regards himself as ‘prophetic son1’.
Speaking to this publication, ECG Campus Ministries Chairperson Ashley Mukwesha said:
“We are expecting a positively explosive grand opening for the second semester. We are looking forward to rejuvenate great energy in the lives of students as they pursue their career. A blessed service with hundreds of students burning for the Gospel of Christ. We want to positively touch their lives, as our aim is to Win more souls to Christ. We want the ministry to be more established and be a life guideline to many universities and students across South Africa and other countries. It will be a colorful and beautiful service under the grace of our father Prophet Shepherd Bushiri as many young people’s lives will be changed and transformed”.
“God of our spiritual father, Prophet Bushiri is going to move so mightily as we are in the month of the holy spirit. We are really expecting signs and wonders from God. After tonight, students’ lives will never be the same again. Again, as our father Major 1 taught us about the importance of prayer, campus ministries leaders in various campuses have been engaging in fasting and prayer seeking God’s face and guidance in all what we do through the anointing of Major1.“ TUT Chairperson Oscar Nghonyama added.
The service is expected to start at 17:30 at TUT Main Campus.
