The churches are popular and appear to be enjoying growth partly because of the TV programs that they are running on the National Television.ee findings revealed that the two churches are experiencing numerical growth due to the leaders' participation in church ministries, the sound preaching of the word, expressive and open worship coupled with good music and the evangelism programs promoted in the churches~The leaders' role in church growth is indispensable as long as the leaders remain committed to their calling.
