El Shaddai International Christian Centre is a group of churches led by Ramson Mumba. He started his first church in 1998 in Bingley, West Yorkshire, with his first wife Linda Mumba and then moved to Bradford in 2000, experiencing considerable growth. In 2004, Ramson Mumba moved to London to plant a church, and churches have also been started in Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff, and Lusaka, Zambia.

In early 2007, the London church purchased the Golders Green Hippodrome for £5,000,000. In 2010 the church took out a 5-year lease on Castle Gate Congregational Centre in Nottingham.

El-Shaddai has recently planted its seventh church in the UK, into the city of Sheffield. Dr Ramson has also moved to Houston, Texas to start the ninth church globally. After separating with his first wife, he married his second wife Estrella Mumba in 2014 and they make their home together in Houston, Texas.

Ramson Mumba is the spiritual child of Creflo Dollar, and has been affiliated with his organisation in 2002. The church is also a member of the Evangelical Alliance. Ramson Mumba was described as "chic and trendy" by Jonathan Oloyede in an article on the black church in Christianity Magazine .

ESICC is not a black-majority church and makes it clear that it is a church where all are accepted, regardless of race, skin colour or gender.
