Demonstration Ministries Worldwide has a culture of amity and warmth that has blossomed throughout the years. The welfare department symbolizes this. It ensures that first time visitors to the church experience that air of acceptance and friendship. Newcomers during any of the two Sunday services are received with words of encouragement, promises from the Bible and light refreshments. Regular members are also celebrated on their birthdays and wedding anniversaries.
The prayer department exists in fulfilment of the scripture “Men ought always to pray and not faint…” (Luke 18:1). It is made up of ministers and individuals driven by a passion to intercede and supplicate on behalf of the church, members, the nation and all souls needing God’s love and salvation. The department holds intercessory sessions for every one of the church’s services and programmes.

PROTOCOL / SECURITY
A unit of the Senior Pastor’s office responsible for running the itinerary of the church’s pastorate and invited guests. They plan and execute the transportation, lodgings, hospitality and safety logistics of Pastors and Guest ministers during and after services and events as well as provide executive assistance where necessary.
The fact that the church is a place of refuge for all also makes it susceptible to visits from individuals with questionable behavior. Thus, the security department exists to enforce the three tenets of security – deter, detect and demobilize – thereby ensuring the safety of lives and property within the church and the immediate surroundings.
A successful service is one where all the elements of sound and vision flow in sync to give worshippers a memorable worship experience. Achieving this balance is the primary concern of the department made up of audiovisual, technical and sound units. They combine cutting-edge equipments, gadgets and expertise to give you a glorious on-site and online worship experience.
Often referred to as the “department of champions.” Church care is made up of volunteers responsible for ensuring that every service has dust-free seats, clean toilets, scrubbed floors and a generally hygienic environment that is conducive for worship and spiritual activity
Also called the Heritage of Grace, members of the department present Biblical principles and notable church information through theatre, as service to God and ministry to the church community and beyond. They produce quality dramatic and comedy presentations to enhance and compliment messages from the altar and themes of special attractions and events.
Demonstration Ministries Worldwide is known for very robust and celebratory praise and worship sessions anchored by anointed psalmists, music ministers and instrumentalists also fondly known as the Grace Levites. Apart from singing to glorify God, our music ministers support the Pastor by using music to encourage and uplift God’s people, drawing us all into a closer relationship with God.

The objective of the Government Relations department is to equip Christians in public service with the spiritual, moral and intellectual capacity needed to enable and sustain effective government institutions and to encourage more Christians to engage in public service at every level.

The unit expresses the aforementioned commitment through a series of activities including:
Intercession: Offering up continued, fervent prayers for those in public service and the nation at large.
Training: Training functioning and aspiring public office holders on how to wield and demonstrate Christ like influence in government at all levels.
Public Policy Enhancements: Making thoroughly researched public policy suggestions and proposing solutions to specific areas of public service delivery to the appropriate authorities at various levels.
Political Process: Training on the engagement of the political space, constitutionalism, socio-political structure, etc.
