Dobi is a district in Gwagwalada LGA in FCT. The resident of the land are called the Gbagis. Dobi district is comprised of several villages remotely located and far away from social amenities like pipe borne water, electricity, schools, health care, etc.
The Church was able to plant a number of churches in some of the villages. So far, seven churches have been built. There are:
i. Dobi Center:
This church is located in Dobi center. Victor and Janet Dadira from Cameroun are the pastors in charge of this church. The Church has about twenty members. Dobi Center is also used as the co-ordinating centre. The church has a worship hall that can accommodate up to 500 worshippers. The church building is at the finishing stage.
ii. Ledi I and II
Ledi I and Ledi II are located not too far from Dobi Centre. The church engaged the services of Solomon and Martha Ayuba who coordinates the activities of the two churches. They are from Mubi in Adamawa State. The Church, through contributions from well-meaning and spirited members has built a pastorium of 3-bedroom flat at Ledi II for the Pastor.
The Church is located close to the Fulani settlement in Keida Village. Pastor and Mrs. Danjuma Bala from Nasarawa state who pastor the church resigned recently. The church is in need of a new pastor for this area. Sometimes last year, the Church building collapsed and a temporary structure was put up for worship. As God releases funds, a permanent structure will be raised for worship.
The church is situated among the Gbagis and Bassas. The Church have over forty worshippers. A new Church building was recently built and is in the finishing stage. Pastor and Mrs. Micah Joel from Plateau state takes care of this Church.

Some time ago, in partnership with Total Child Care Initiative, an NGO, a school was started in this village and the school was later adopted by the government of the FCT.
