Crossway Destiny International started as Gospel Foundation (GosFo) in 1978. It was formed by students from COTSECO (Copperbelt Secondary Teachers College) who felt a strong call to do the work of the Lord. The founders were Newman Bubala (team Leader), Friday Mumbi, Henry Kashweka, Clayton Kanguya and Evans Petimoya.
Upon graduation, these men were posted to various provinces and districts to begin their teaching careers. Due to their strong commitment and call, the men of God organized themselves in such a way that they would hold camp meetings during school holidays targeting the young people. The men of God sacrificed and supported the activities of the ministry using their salaries. Churches were started beginning in North Western through crusades and later across the entire nation of Zambia. The ministry has grown and has connections with partners outside the country. In 1997, the name changed to Destiny Ministries International which ended up into three independent ministries including Crossway Destiny International which was led by the Late Bishop Clayton Kanguya and now by Bishop Newman Bubala.
Currently, the ministry has a total of 40 churches in Zambia and one church in Zambabwe.
