CHURCH PLANTER

“For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up…” Ps 69:9 KJV

 

 

The scripture above best describes the person of Bishop Dan McKing, a man of God with undeniable zeal for the house of the Lord. His passion is to see churches established in all nations of the earth preaching the gospel to the unsaved and making disciples of nations according to Matt. 28:19-20 KJV, Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

 

In obedience to the Lord’s command towards the end of the year 2014, he began preparing his ministers for the great work of missions to nations. He also restructured the church constitution to accommodate the inevitable changes that usually characterize overseeing a network of churches. By April 2015, God also confirmed the earlier instructions by sending various ministers across the globe to him surrendering their local churches to join the network of churches in RGIC Worldwide Inc.

However due to his personal policy of working strictly with ministers trained in house (Refreshing Word Bible Institute), he began massive training of some of these ministers including training more willing church workers for missions. He declined accepting some of the churches of course, and a few were adopted as the Lord instructed. But He practically planted many churches himself with some of the ministers God has blessed his ministry with.

 

Today he oversees about 50 churches across 10 countries and counting, all in the network of churches in Refreshing Glory International Church Worldwide Inc. which he founded almost a decade ago. He is a passionate church planter who believes that no minister should have to destroy another minister’s church in the name of building his new church. This is why he strongly advocates and put into practice, church planting with just two or three as our Lord Jesus Himself instructed in Matt. 18:20 KJV, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

 

Therefore, till date Bishop Dan McKing has never broken or destroyed any church just to build any of his own. He resigned peacefully at the two previous churches where he served as Pastors, Foursquare Gospel Church Ghana and Grace Pentecostal Assembly Nigeria. He made sure no members of these churches followed him to RGIC Worldwide Inc from inception! He’s known for quoting our Lord Jesus very often in John 10:14 KJV, “…I know my sheep, and am known of mine.” And in John 10:27 KJV, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me”

 

Bishop Dan McKing truly believes that leaders are servants, and this has endeared him to many across the globe even as he today mentors many ministers in Africa without demanding a dime from any of them, rather he blesses them as much as the Lord gives him the ability to give. If the Lord tarries, he daily envisions planting churches in thousands!
