[07.16.08] Several hundred people gathered in Fort Mill, S.C., Saturday for the grand opening of All Nations Church and Healing Center, which was held as part of the weekend’s Prophetic Fire Conference. The new facility is the headquarters of Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda’s worldwide evangelistic and healing ministry as well as the couple’s charismatic congregation.
Located on grounds that were a part of Jim Bakker’s Heritage USA complex, the facility replaces a huge tent where the Chavdas led their Watch of the Lord all-night prayer meetings, which have been held continuously every Friday night for the last 14 years. In addition to the ongoing prayer watches, the new center will host upcoming training conferences.
On hand to help dedicate the facility were Bill and Beni Johnson, senior pastors of Bethel Church in Redding, Calif.
For more than 30 years, the Chavdas have traveled the globe, training people in prophetic intercession and healing ministry. During the grand opening ceremony, Mahesh Chavda prayed that God’s glory would remain over the new facility. “May the glory always stay over this house,” he proclaimed, “and may God once again bring back the glory to this area.” –Sandra Chambers in Fort Mill, S.C.
