The PDC engaged the congregation for input and proposal for development of an iconic Sanctuary. This
attracted a number of volunteers who promised to offer their services pro-borno. Young Architects
decided to engage in a competition to design the Sanctuary. From this competition, the church
selected one out of the three proposals submitted. This was design was from Architect Githaiga from
Studio Verv. However, all participants agreed to collaborate in this endeavour.
As seen in their design, the Sanctuary will have a theatre style setting 1700 seater with a unique
34-foot 'dancing roof'.
The project received endorsement and support from the Congregational Chair, Mary Dehi and Rev.

already been pledged by end of 2015.
Professionals (consultants, contractors and engineers) were invited to make their bids for the
project. The selection process was stringent as they required people with proven track records.
The actual costing totalled to Ksh. 360 M, this called for more pledges which was steered during a
Retreat held in December 2016 to restrategise.
