THIS IS OUR STORY
So you get to know us better
Being led of the Holy Spirit to do evangelism Bishop Dawn Sutherland began her own ministry in the community of Days Mountain which she resides, she held prayer meetings, fasting service and bible studies on her veranda and under trees.
After a period of time her ministry began to grow and in 1988 the Christian Community Church was born. Bishop Sutherland got a piece of land to lease, a temporary structure was established using slob and roofed by a tarpaulin borrowed from the urban Development commission (UDC). This structure was also used for a crusade held.
The church grew and with contribution from believers a concrete foundation was made. Still without a permanent structure the church remained under the tarpaulin until rain destroyed it. After a few years a team of missionaries from the United States who were referred to her erected a permanent building along with additional seating within three and a half days
The church continued to grow and later through prayer and fasting and by prophetic words the name Christian Community Church was changed to the Ebenezer (hitherto God has help us) Community Church. We can say that we have come this far by faith, leaning on the lord and as our name suggest hitherto the lord has helped us.
