On August 9, 2015 Gofer Meda Congregation inaugurated a church building with a great celebration. The Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus President, Rev. Dr. Wakseyoum Idossa with other pastors blessed and dedicated the new church building.
The foundation stone of the church was laid on September 12, 2011 with initial capital of 40,000 Birr. At the side of mission work and evangelism of the congregation, the construction started at the end of 2011.
Currently the congregation has 1065 communicant members and 2012 total members. Due to this reason, it was necessary to build a spacious worship place to accommodate the increasing number of members.
It took about four years to finalize the construction of the church and other offices that are found under the worship place.
Rev. Dr. Wakseyoum Idosa, shared the word of God from Mark 8:1-10.
Gofer Meda Mekane Yesus Congregation is one of the largest congregations found under South Central Synod, Hossana.
The celebration was concluded with gracious gifts and offerings from all the participants of the dedication.
