Building Life, Building Lives

What Is Building Life, Building Lives?

Building Fund Campaign Project

It was Bishop David Stephens’ vision many years ago to build a family life center, and foundational plans were prepared. When Pastor Wilkerson assumed the pastorate in 2021, he  explored the possibility of making this vision become a reality and made plans to launch a building fund campaign at Life Christian Church in Lansing MI.

Pastor Wilkerson’s Experience

In February of 2022, Pastor Wilkerson was seated on a plane at the Lansing airport. After boarding the plane, the passengers were informed that the flight destination’s airspace had been shut down. As a result, they would not be permitted to depart Lansing for around an hour. Pastor Wilkerson later described how he fidgeted uncomfortably for at least an hour on the plane prior to takeoff.

As they descended into Washington, D.C., he noticed how quickly the time had passed in the air compared to how slowly it had passed while they were delayed on the ground. Pastor Wilkerson realized it was because they were making progress in the air. He felt a strong impression of the Spirit that God so designed for him to experience that delay so that he would notice the progress in the air. God demonstrated to him that it would be necessary for him to “show progress” in order to successfully complete the gymnasium project.

Life Christian Church Plan

Life Christian Church has embarked on a three-year building fund campaign to raise the final funds necessary for this project and other maintenance needs. We believe that God is going to finish the project that began as a vision many years ago. All of our ministries should benefit from the fulfillment of this plan.
