In its history, the Ministry has embarked on an outreach program that involves Crusades, Television, Radio and Social media to reach out to its members, supporters and all those who are prepared to receive the preaching and teachings of the Ministry. The Ministry has also held Conferences, Gala dinners, Golf tournaments and voluntary contributions to its revenue. In this instance, the Ministry will be involved in the same outreach and fundraising activities. It is for this reason and in line with its fundraising endeavour the Ministry will host a Golf tournament on the occasion to celebrate Archbishop BS Zondo birthday on the 26 January 2018, while the actual birthday in on the 24 January. The Golf tournament will be followed by the price giving Gala dinner, the table for the dinner which includes participation in tournament ranges from R2500 per seat and those wishing to share and sit with the Archbishop on his table will be requested to contribute R10 000 per sit. It is hoped with this endeavour the Ministry will be able to raise its initial target of R 100-million in the shortest period possible.
