The Shepherd House Assembly International formally launched the production of its Shepherd’s Sure Bread on Sunday in Abuja to assist the indigents in the church and other communities.

Speaking at the event, Pastor Jackie Talena, the Project Director of the initiative, said that the aim was to help the church generate resources to provide welfare for its members and other less privileged in the society.

The director said that the project was part of the church`s vison of `reaching the unreached in the society` and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.

“Though this is a business venture, the proceeds of the bread will be used to actualise the vision of the ministry and the house of God.

“This is through welfare and support for the less privileged and by generating resources to organise our outreaches, crusades and programmes in the church,“ she said.

Talena, who is also the wife of the senior pastor of the church, said that the business would be used as a platform to train members in the skill of baking and also in building their skills.

She added that the skills would also empower members to be financially stable, especially with the rising cost of living in the country.

She thanked Rev Joshua Talena, the Senior Pastor of the church, for the quality investment and other sacrifices to ensure the success of establishing the bakery, and urged the church members and other resident of Abuja to patronise the bread.

Speaking earlier, the Project Coordinator for the bread production, Mrs Akon Etuk, said that it successfully passed through all the due process and requirements of the National Agency for Food, Drug, and Control(NAFDAC), of which a certificate of listing has been granted in that regard.

“We are positioned to ensure the standard, the processes, hygiene and quality of this brand is maintained at all times.

“We will always consider our consumers first in our practices and also offer the best prices possible, `she said.

She urged the government to consider the current economic challenges in the country and assist small-scale business such as the church`s bread bakery to enable them survive.

“ The brand we are introducing to Nigerians today is a wholesome pack of goodness, health and vitality,“ she said.
