Pastor W. F. Kumuyi’s vision of physical development as a factor of church growth gave birth to this project. The centre has been described as the city of God’s people where men, women, youths and children will look up to heaven and receive spiritual help from God. Among other things, it is where souls can be converted and receive the heavenly vision for an enduring, rewarding service for God. The adult auditoria are built to take 160,000 participants in a single programme.
Due to the size of the complex, two major dual carriage ways (about 2.25 kilometres each) from the gate run parallel to each other along West-East axis and are linked up at strategic points with dual carriage ways labelled alphabetically. The beautiful road network, sidewalk, bus stops, breakdown parks, and the car park are all designed to ease human and vehicular traffic congestion, not only within the complex but also on the expressway. The exit route from the complex through Mowe village to the express also helps in traffic decongestion.
The adult auditoria are in-between the two major roads. Each of the 9 main adult auditoria fanned out from the sides of a hilly semi-circle rostrum, on a straight line, to a distance of about 250/ 50 meters (820/164 feet) at least. Thus, the auditoria are accessible from almost all sides in the complex. The youth camp is located to the right and the children camp to the left of the adult auditoria. The residential areas are located some distance away from the auditoria to preserve the serenity concomitant of wholesome and deeper communion with God.
Besides, the structural design of DLCC incorporates modern and wonderful facilities for the comfort of participants during programmes. This includes accommodation, water treatment/boreholes, sewage treatment plant, cafeteria, kitchen, satellite sales points, exhibition centre, and welfare block, communication tower/outfit and electricity. For instance, power is supplied through electrical conduit for both internal and external electrification. The streetlights in the conference centre make it a beautiful city. There are stand-by power generating sets equipped with Auto Mains Failure (AMF) mechanisms. It is intended that when the project is completed‚ a bank, fuel dump, library, etc would also be located at different points for the benefits of participants.
Since the project kicked off by the last quarter of 2001, Deeper Lifers at home and abroad have continued to support it through their financial contributions, and manual labour especially of the members of the Lagos church. It was such an untiring support that made the conference center ready for the first nationwide programme – Success Academy for Youths SAY 2002, that held between September 11 and 15 there. Other programmes held so far at DLCC include faith seminars, retreats covenant seminars and combined Sunday services. Great testimonies from these programmes like Move Your Mountain Through Faith, September 20-22, 2002; Secret of Success, Prosperity & Triumphant Living, October 18-20, 2002; Total Freedom, Deliverance and Dominion, November 22-24, 2002; Come Up Higher for Revival, Progress & Promotion, December 11-15 and 24-28,2002; Goodness and Mercy, January 17-19, 2003; Experience the Holy Spirit and Be Transformed by His Presence and Power, April 17-21, 2003; Life Abundant, December 9-14, 24-28, have functionally marked DLCC as a centre for Divine Liberty, Conversion and Commission. The mighty hand of Jesus Christ has blessed thousands there. At DLCC, the burst of spiritual activities continues as God moves to harvest souls in these last days through His anointed servant Pastor W.F. Kumuyi.
Attend a programme at DLCC and you will be joyful for the rest of your life! Come with a seeking heart. Meet JEHOVAH SHAMAH there.
