The Rt. Rev. Dr. Alfred Buss,

Foundation stone

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost, the work of constructing a new lecture theatre at SEKUCo is now taking off. On Sunday 28th August 2011, NED church leaders, pastors, SEKUCo staff and congregants from Magamba parish came together to celebrate the official inauguration of the construction. It was a unique blessing to be accompanied by Rt. Rev. Dr. Alfred Buss, the President of the Evangelical Church of Westphalia, Germany, and his delegation, who had arrived in Lushoto one day earlier.

The ceremony began at the construction site where President Buss laid the foundation stoned, assisted by Bishop Stephen Munga and the pastors. Then followed a procession to Campus B where the worship service continued.
