Debre Zeyit Misgana Church

Greetings from the Chairman

bio endale hodie Beloved Brother,
We have been provided a great plan to accomplish by our lord. We want to spread the good news far and wide. You know that we are living in a country where a lot is to be done. Out of the 80 million people in Ethiopia, less than 1 million people have received Jesus. Though we have a very strong will and a great promise from our Lord, we need people who can sponsor financially and materially to accomplish our objectives. Their prayers and advice, as well as their working in collaboration with us, for the glory of the Lord will be very important.

-Endale Hodie

We started from Debre Zeyit where there is annual pagan religion celebrated in front of Lake Hora. Animals are sacrificed while whiskey and other drinks are thrown into the lake. Butter is anointed on trees and songs of celebration are undertaken. We have established outreaches to bring these people to the light of God.
There are 8 outreaches. Two of them are located in Debre Zeyit, along with the main church, which is located in Debre Zeyit Keble 02. A good hall has been constructed. Various services are also being undertaken. It is 45kms from Addis Ababa.

Our Vision

  1. To preach the Good News wherever people have not yet received Jesus as their only Savior.

  2. To establish outreaches in areas where paganism, Muslim religion, and other false religions are widespread.

  3. To train our church believers to become dedicated servants of our Lord and to place them according to their vocation, and to establish training centers for this purpose.

  4. Our main objective is to establish churches in towns and rural areas of Ethiopia.

  5. Our main concern is to establish true disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, and have already laid the foundation for this.

Our Need

  1. Libraries that are well equipped so that our people can improve their knowledge.

  2. Offices for different purposes.

  3. A conducive atmosphere for the very needy people in the church.

  4. To establish facilities to train and educate the young generation so that they become effective servants of our Lord.

History of the Debre Zeyit Evangelical Misgana Church

Debre Zeyit Evangelical Misgana Church first began in the form of fellowship on September 20, 1977. After ten years it was recognized as a church in 1987. At that time time there were around twenty members. It started in the house of an individual believer. We worshipped the Lord in that house for four years until 1991 when we worshipped in a rented house.

We were given our own compound by the municipality an 1994. Since there was a strong opposition against our church, it was completely destroyed and most of our people were attacked.

Also in 1994 we were provided with our present compound and the ones who were suspected of destroying the old church were made to construct a new church in our newly obtained compound. The new Church building was inaugurated on September 9, 2005. At that time the total number of our people had risen to 400.
