Over the past years of the Church's existence, different people of different tribes, colour, have come in and been part of the leadership.

Pastor Barbara Tipett, who is the founder, provided oversight of the ministry from its inception up to April 1995 when she sensed a call to move on. At the time Rev Barbara left for USA, Elders Mr Felix Sakyi and Mr Kamuzu Chibambo ably led the church until 1997 when Reverend Jim Lapka from Canada took over as Senior Pastor of the church.

Rev. Lapka served the Ministry up to March 2002 when he felt the need to move on. From April 2002 Pastor Zacc Kawalala providing oversight to the church, while it was still known as Blantyre Christian Centre. It was at this time that the vision to plant churches beyond Blantyre was birthed. Since the revisiting of the vision, the ministry has also changed its governance structure to fit the current direction.

Currently the ministry has an Executive Council as the highest governing board. The council is supported by Technical Advisory Boards.
