A gathering at the new PEFA County cathedral awaiting the grand opening of the church
PEFA County cathedral is located in Migori town, along Migori-Sirare road behind Florence hotel. The sanctuary opened its doors on the 9th January 2000. By then, congregants were on a leased premise known as Girongo stores in Migori town.
Later in the year, the church acquired land and moved to the current Msomi TTC grounds where they erected a temporary structure. This was a huge event in the church’s history. With the growth of the Lord’s work through evangelism, they saw God expand the work thereby creating the need for a bigger sanctuary. As their numbers continued to increase, congregants were compelled to expand the church thus the second phase II of the building was started in 2004.This was dubbed “Operation Push the Wall”
Dr. Nelson Makanda, the NCCK Deputy General Secretary delivering a sermon in the new sanctuary
In November 2012, the leadership of this local church and the congregation were sensitized on Church and Community Mobilization Process (CCMP) through NCCK. In 2013. This enabled them to entirely embark CCMP which holistically transformed both the church and the community. They thus realized that they had the resources to enable them build a cathedral and so the journey begun.
With much prayer, the church begun by acquiring the land in 2014 and on this land the newly dedicated County cathedral was build.
On the 5th of March 2017, the church was officially opened by Bishop Dr. George M. Chipa, who is the Deputy General Overseer, PEFA Kenya. It was pomp and color, singing and dancing as worshipers streamed in their numbers to the church. The church was filled to capacity with an overflow all the way to the door, on the staircases, the balcony and hundreds seated outside as the sermon continued.
The church has an estimated total population of 800 congregants majority of whom are children, teenagers and youths. The church is headed by Bishop Dr. John Okinda who is the senior pastor.
