"We are blessed to be a Blessing"
In 1975, Bishop Peter Makanto, as a young man then, sensed the call of God upon His life into the full time Ministry of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. By the turn of 1985 the Lord further showed him a vision of a key, which he saw for some days in the spirit, after which, he received, a word, from the Lord, saying, “A life of Prayer and the Ministry of the Word is what the Lord will use, through his chosen people even the saints, who will obey him, along these lines, to usher souls in their countless numbers into his Kingdom”. Acts 6:4. This experience led to the birth of the first camp meeting in September 1985, under the auspices of All Christian Camp Ministry [ACCM].
He passionately continued in the pursuit of the vision, with a couple of brethren, who were moved by the Spirit of the vision, till 1993, during which, the Lord instructed him, for the purpose of continuity, he needed to start up a parish Church, through which, he will share in more detail the vision and also practice, what is required of any person that runs with it, with the sole purpose of continuous effective transmission of the same, to the present and future Generations. It is to this vision you are welcome to be a part. The Upper Room Chapel started in their humble aboard at No. 1 Dumne Close, Federal Low – cost, Jimeta – Yola with his wife, Pastor Esther Makanto as his co-founder and a couple of some brethren.
