Ezekiel, like pastor Owuor, is very particular about how people dress in his church. He is also strict about ladies visiting his offices because he believes that temptations will lead him back to his old ways.

He recently relocated his church from Shanzu in Mombasa to Mavueni in Kilifi County due to increased church membership. This is because he desired a larger area in which to build a large church and other amenities to accommodate his growing large numbers.
