Gospel Furthering Bible Church was made the cradle of religion and development in the region. Rev Rhoads arrived in 1903, aged 23 years to a hostile reception.

He retreated to the more receptive neighbouring Mbooni, where he evangelised as endeared himself to the locals. That led to the birth of the Africa Inland Church (AIC) Mbooni Station. With the assistance of local Christians, who had taken up Bible study, he helped translate the Bible into Kikamba in 1920 while still working for African Inland Mission (AIM).
