_The Sister Ministry in Unity of Dayton, Dayton, OH
_Unity of Dayton, Dayton, OH established a Sister ministry relationship
with Christ Unity Church, Port Harcourt Rivers State in 1998.
Sister Ministry relationship with Christ Unity Church, Port Harcourt,
began in 1998 and was the initial focus of our Building Bridges Program,
the International Outreach Program of Unity of Dayton. We have
established a bond of friendship, rooted in love and mutual respect,
between members of our two churches and this has extended to all the
churches in Nigeria. Our current contact person is Ngozi Nwachukwu, the
President of Christ Unity Church Board of Trustees.
have supported our Sister Church with prayers, books and tithes. Our
church has been richly blessed and our Sister Church has shared with us
that they have experienced tremendous growth and expansion in
consciousness through this relationship. We have received heart-warming
letters of appreciation, photographs, gifts and tithes from our Sister
Church. We have also received wonderful reports of the transformations
they experienced through the 4T Program we introduced to them in 1998.
shared with us their vision of building their own church on their
permanent site and moving from a rented apartment within a year. We held
the vision with them in prayer and donated to their building fund. The
financial prosperity from their 4T experience enabled them to begin
their building project and in 2002, they moved to their partially
completed permanent site while they continued to build.
On Unity of Dayton’s 75th Anniversary, we received from our Sister Church, a beautiful, hand-woven drape with a congratulatory message woven onto it. Their women send us gifts of articles lovingly designed and made by women in their communities. The photographs and love notes we include in some of the books we send them have helped build friendship ties.
Our Sister Church collaborated with us in sending a minister from the USA to Nigeria in October 2003, to experience the cultural diversity and Unity practices in Nigeria. They lovingly took care of all his accommodation, feeding and transportation expenses during his stay in Nigeria.
By 2005, we had become acutely aware of the number of Unity churches in Nigeria and the challenges they faced in ministry. As our vision expanded and we reached out to all the churches in Nigeria, our focus shifted somewhat away from our Sister Church. From 2005 – 2008, we sent 1,203 books to all Unity churches in Nigeria.
Unity of Dayton sponsored Rev. Amos Kalu, founder and Director of the National School in Nigeria, to the 2005 Unity People’s Convention, to receive the Charles Fillmore Award and also experience a Retreat at Unity Village. We began sending monthly tithe in October 2005 to Rev. Amos Kalu to help support his ministry and have continued to do so.
Our Building Bridges Sister Church Program was nurtured with love and passion by our then minister, Rev. Lisa Davis. It was enthusiastically embraced by our congregation from its inception and is fully supported by our Board of Trustees. Unity of Dayton is delighted to see our vision of all Unity ministries worldwide networking in love and unity, becoming real.
Blessings of Love, Peace and Joy!
