Breakthrough Worship Centre

About Us


Breakthrough Worship Centre is a branch of the Apostolic Church in Zambia (ACZ). ACZ is a pentecostal group of churches in Zambia. The vision of ACZ is to spearhead unity, revival and missions in Zambia and abroad. Breakthrough Worship Centre (formally Lusaka City Cell Church) was planted on  5th April, 1992 in Lusaka, Zambia.

The first Pastor was Pastor Shadreck  Pandala now pastoring in South Africa. Later on, the late Apostle  Leonard Bunda was appointed by the Apostolic Church in Zambia to take over the church.

After the death of Apostle Bunda in September 2001, Bishop Shemmy  Makelele was appointed Senior Pastor of the Church on 2nd March 2002. The Church moved from Munali Secondary School to the new  church building in PHI-Lusaka in October 2006 and changed the name to Breakthrough Worship Centre.

We have faith to achieve the following goals by the end of 2012. Luke 1:37  'For with God nothing shall be impossible':

  1. 700 members and introduction of a second service
  2. 40 cell groups around the city
  3. Planting of three churches in Lusaka
  4. Expansion of the Drop-in Centre Project
  5. Purchase of a second bus
  6. Increasing our income by 40%
