Published

on

The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Lagos Province 40, Solid Rock Parish, Ojodu has donated a Modern School Building of 10 classrooms, its third in that community, to the Lagos State Government.

The 10- classroom block complex built in Ojodu Primary School was handed over to the government in a brief but colorful ceremony held on Friday, July 8 at the school compound.

Speaking at the handover ceremony, the Pastor In Charge, Lagos Province 40, Pastor Bola Odutola restated that, ‘’RCCG Lagos Province 40 has been providing assistance to support education development efforts by Lagos State Government through various projects.’’

Still explaining further, Odutola said, ‘’ as a church, we believe that education is one of the important sectors for the socio-economic development of any country and it is, therefore, essential that we all work together to assist the Government in delivering quality education for all.’’

He said, ‘’we also believe it is important for all the children to learn in a conducive and safe environment, hence the resolve of our church to support the Government continuously.’’

‘’ We seek to mitigate the problem of overcrowded classrooms in this community thereby making the learning environment conducive for learners and educators. We are driven by a resolve to restore dignity to our public schools as most of us are beneficiaries of quality education from public schools.’’

‘’We are, therefore, very pleased with the successful completion of the construction of this block of classrooms,’’ Odutola stated.

While expressing gratitude to the builders and other professionals involved for their efforts, as well as the principal and staff of Ojodu

primary School for their cooperation, Odutola urged the school authority to ensure that the new block of classrooms is well -utilized and properly maintained.

In her response to the good efforts of the church, Lagos State Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folashade Adefisayo, who received the school on behalf of the government, expressed appreciation to the church saying, ‘’ the state had a long and good relationship with the Redeemed Christian Church of God.’’

She said, ‘’ On behalf of Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu, we thank the church very much. We are proud of the relationship with RCCG. This is not the first RCCG church project I am commissioning as a Commissioner. My own first commissioning as a Commissioner was a school built by RCCG church in Lagos Island where they also gave school bags and a lot of school equipment to children. Again, I say thank you.’’

Adefisayo also urged the school authority to maintain the building and make sure the facilities are always in good condition.

Also present at the event to anchor the formal presentation of the building was Pastor Brown Oyitso, Intercontinental CSR Missions Coordinator of RCCG. In his speech, he commended LP 40 and other provinces of the church for their swift and prompt response to the directive of the General Overseer, Pastor E.A Adeboye, asking all provinces of the church to impact positively on their host communities.

Oyitso, who came with many other ministers involved in Christian Social Responsibility programmes of the church, stated that Christian Social Responsibility provides a conscious avenue for Christians to make a visible impact in various key areas that can impact society. “Where others see societal challenges as unscalable barriers all around the world, we see opportunities to take decisive effort to create solutions as we work with people, communities, leaders, and governments worldwide” he explained.

It could be recalled that in 2016, RCCG Solid Rock Parish also handed over a block of ten classrooms to the same school. The school is perhaps the biggest public primary school cluster in the Ojodu community with at least three schools in the same compound. The new classrooms will help the school to further bring its student-per-classroom ratio to a good point.

RCCG is a frontline institution in Nigeria and beyond, making  massive impact in its corporate social responsibility projects. The CSR initiative of the church is sub-divided into eight identifiable sections tagged SHEMBAGS. The acronym stands for Social, Health , Education, Business, Arts and Culture, Government and Sports. Each section specifically targets needs in areas vital to people and societies globally.

Funke Felix Adejumo @ 60: Celebrating an Amazon and a fisher of Men

When Pastor Funke Felix Adejumo heed to the alter call by giving her life to her creator at age 14 little did she know that it was the path to her greatness in life as her steps and sojourn in ministry has been ordered to take a very wonderous path? Although it was a tough decision today that singular decision has made her a teacher, mother, mentor and role model to millions of people across the world.

One thing she is notable for is the fact that you can serve your creator without looking tattered and unkempt as she is known to have stated in preachings that it’s essential for women to dress well and not follow the old order of Nigerian Christianity. Today, through her teachings lots of marriages have been salvaged, lots of homes have been restrengthening, lots of lives have been saved and lots of unbelievers have been converted to believers.

 

The graduate of English from the University of Nigeria Nsukka didn’t just get to her current status by fluke; it took her years of sheer dint of hard work and resilience to attain the enviable height she is today. While growing up, she faced different challenges being a female child as her father didn’t want to invest in her education but with divine intervention, her story changed for good as she is today a graduate and an honorary Doctorate Degree holder. Her life further had a new direction when she met her husband Felix Remi Adejumo in 1892 and got married in 1984 this further cemented her faith as a preacher. With a rough start in ministry in Akure Ondo State, she persevered, built and stood firmly by her husband helping him nurture the Agape Christian ministry that used to be moribund to having over 30 branches across Nigeria.

 

Tomorrow Saturday the 28th of January the well-respected woman of God will glide into the leagues of Sexagenarian as many across the world are getting set to celebrate her to the high heaven with already planned activities to mark her day; it is worthy to note that; her life and teaching over the years have been centred round not only prosperity but preaches patience, growth, development, hard work, and spirituality. Funke Adejumo remains one of the biggest vineyards of his creator sent to the world to redefine Christianity and win souls to the kingdom at 60, her life should be an emulation to all women.

A Minister Without Enemy Hasn’t Touched Kingdom of Darkness –Apostle Suleman

Published

By

Apostle Johnson Suleman

 

God is not mocked. Insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God’s servant is an expression of weakness and carnality. These were the words of servant of God and senior pastor at the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM), Apostle Johnson Suleman, in one of his recent past evangelistic sermons.

 

The enemy is seeking to destroy the Church and in his fantasy, he is attacking what he perceives to be the greatest opportunity for destruction: the pastor’s personality. According to the ‘Restoration Apostle’ in the message extracted from four of his recorded old teachings, “while the enemy devises a scheme to destroy the Church, he would find ways to attack the prophet, and as he finds ways to attack the prophet, he would see his person as the area of greatest vulnerability.”

 

However, Apostle Suleman affirms that while challenges with the Church have been around since the beginning, church leaders with strong faith and the committed flock would continue to remain essential to the Church. The famous Minister of God underscores some facts which he believes are characteristics of a prophet with leadership potentials: he loves God and shows love to people around him because, he says, love is the foundation for a healthy ministry; he has a clear vision and is strategic, he exhibits servant leadership and is dedicated to serving others.

 

The enemy has different tactics aimed to hinder the word of God. But God is not mocked, declares Apostle Suleman, adding that, “but we are prepared for the attacks and we are prepared for the defeat of the attacks.” “We must put on the armour of God, which is primarily a righteous life. But along with that, we must be aware of the enemy’s tactics because the enemy wants to immobilize us and keep us from progressing in our spiritual lives, and therefore, he will come with many different attacks. He wants to keep us from building and completing the work that God has called us to. Because our enemy is both wise and relentless, we must be aware of his tricks and schemes.”

 

 

A prophet of God must stand strong in the face of criticism, Apostle Suleman counsels. “Of course, criticism usually stings and criticism on a public forum stings even more. It discourages the church and hurts the testimony of Christians and the church. But we must stick to preaching the truth at all times and pray to ensure whatever attention of true believers that the devil had taken or captured is recovered.”

 

Apostle Suleman then warns that he is not a regular preacher because he is aware there are enemies and their antics, positing that any Minister of God who has no enemies has not really touched the kingdom of darkness.
