Below you can find more information about DABA motto & Objectives
The motto of the church is, “Occupy Till I Come” from Luke 19:13.
It means to negotiate or trade, with the pounds (make use of the ministerial gifts), exercise them, lay them out, and trade with them. The church ministry is a trade and merchandise, to be carried on, not in the name of the ministers of Christ, nor on their own stock, nor for themselves, but for Christ, and for the good of souls; which shows, that they must not be slothful, but laborious and diligent.
Till I come:
It suggests the certainty of Christ's coming, the continuance of the Gospel ministry to that time; and that there is no rest nor ease for Christ's ministers, but a continued series of labour and service, until then; when, for their encouragement, they shall receive their reward.
