One of our goals as Apostolic Revival Church is to build this 5000-seater sanctuary within the city of Nairobi. By God’s grace, and the support of His people, this vision will be achieved. For the Word did not come from a man, but God gave the command to build this house.
I am calling on all those who love the Lord and the growth of His kingdom to rally behind us and support the building of this house – it is for His glory! Do you know Kingdom financiers who are able to support this vision? Are you one of them? The Word of God says,
1Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Tell the sons of Israel to raise a contribution for Me; from every man whose heart moves him you shall raise My contribution. 3 “This is the contribution which you are to raise from them: gold, silver and bronze, 4 blue, purple and scarlet material, fine linen, goat hair, 5 rams’ skins dyed red, porpoise skins, acacia wood, 6 oil for lighting, spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense, 7 onyx stones and setting stones for the ephod and for the breastpiece. 8 “Let them construct a sanctuary for Me, that I may dwell among them. 9 “According to all that I am going to show you, as the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furniture, just so you shall construct it.
2 Then Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every skillful person in whom the LORD had put skill, everyone whose heart stirred him, to come to the work to perform it. 3 They received from Moses all the contributions which the sons of Israel had brought to perform the work in the construction of the sanctuary. And they still continued bringing to him freewill offerings every morning. 4 And all the skillful men who were performing all the work of the sanctuary came, each from the work which he was performing, 5 and they said to Moses, “The people are bringing much more than enough for the construction work which the LORD commanded us to perform.” 6 So Moses issued a command, and a proclamation was circulated throughout the camp, saying, “Let no man or woman any longer perform work for the contributions of the sanctuary.” Thus the people were restrained from bringing any more. 7 For the material they had was sufficient and more than enough for all the work, to perform it.
We find the same pattern again during David’s time:
1 Then King David said to the entire assembly, “My son Solomon, whom alone God has chosen, is still young and inexperienced and the work is great; for the temple is not for man, but for the LORD God. 2 “Now with all my ability I have provided for the house of my God the gold for the things of gold, and the silver for the things of silver, and the bronze for the things of bronze, the iron for the things of iron, and wood for the things of wood, onyx stones and inlaid stones, stones of antimony and stones of various colors, and all kinds of precious stones and alabaster in abundance. 3 “Moreover, in my delight in the house of my God, the treasure I have of gold and silver, I give to the house of my God, over and above all that I have already provided for the holy temple, 4 namely, 3,000 talents of gold, of the gold of Ophir, and 7,000 talents of refined silver, to overlay the walls of the buildings; 5 of gold for the things of gold and of silver for the things of silver, that is, for all the work done by the craftsmen. Who then is willing to consecrate himself this day to the LORD?”
6 Then the rulers of the fathers’ households, and the princes of the tribes of Israel, and the commanders of thousands and of hundreds, with the overseers over the king’s work, offered willingly; 7 and for the service for the house of God they gave 5,000 talents and 10,000 darics of gold, and 10,000 talents of silver, and 18,000 talents of brass, and 100,000 talents of iron. 8 Whoever possessed precious stones gave them to the treasury of the house of the LORD, in care of Jehiel the Gershonite. 9 Then the people rejoiced because they had offered so willingly, for they made their offering to the LORD with a whole heart, and King David also rejoiced greatly.

Here now are some photos of our anticipated sanctuary. As God has moved you, arise and stand in your position as a kingdom financier of this work. The architect has set the cost of the building at Ksh. 600 million (6 million dollars).
Here now are more details of the sanctuary:
The design is contemporary architecture; a modern, large capacity 5-floor auditorium complex.
The sanctuary is designed to sit on a 2-acre piece of land.
The 500-seat auditorium is designed with acoustic effects put into consideration to enhance sound quality. Acoustic features, i.e, the corn-shaped design, sound adsorbent/reflective wall and ceiling panels, protruding columns on the walls, floor carpeting, fabric seats and the sitting arrangement are all meant to maximize sound quality.
The building has two levels of basement parking, accommodating 350 cars.
The building has two high-speed, 18-passanger elevators operating from the basement to the auditorium, which also eases access for persons with disabilities.
To ease the flow of large crowds, the 5000-seat auditorium is serviced by 9 stairways, 8 of which are wide-span, designed also for emergency evacuations.
The upper level basement also contains mechanical rooms for electricity transformers and back-up generators, a reservoir water tank, garbage room/incinerator and sewer pump systems.
