ASSISTANT General Overseer to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God on Administration and Personnel, Pastor Johnson Funsho Odesola will headline this year’s Break-through Conference of the church’s Province 25 which begins on Wednesday at the church headquarters in Ojokoro, Lagos, reports Sam Eyoboka.
The 4-day event with a theme; “Jesus” will feature several entre-preneurial training/business talks, power rally/impartation services, special ministration/anointing service also has Pastor Fred Odekhian and Prof. Patrick Danro Fynn from Ghana on the card.
Addressing newsmen ahead of the event in his church office, the Pastor-in-charge of Lagos Provin-ce 25, Pastor Debo Akande urged Lagosians to take advantage of the 9th edition of the programme to upgrade their personal status in life.
“The programme is designed to get the people’s attention to God not just seeking blessings from Him without knowing the source of such blessings. Our major objective is to connect the people to God from whom all blessings flow. Someone will say if you teach a man how to fish he will not hunger again, but if you give him fish, he will keep on asking.
Articulating its achievements since the programme started in 2009, the PICP humbly submtted that God has been faithful, “pre-serving lives of the people that have been attending, expanding His kingdom, blessings untold, with outstanding testimonies from year to year.”
Asked why breakthrough confer-ence? Pastor Akande said the church discovered that people often seek blessings or break-throughs from sources other than God: some go to idol worshippers to seek ways they can be blessed; some engage in diabolical things, fetish things.
“We want to enlighten people that any other source apart from God is not a right source and that it is God who gives one the power to get wealth.”
According to him, the break-through “we are talking about is not limited to one particular aspect of life: it could be academic, marital, financial breakthrough because God can meet every need of everyone.”
He maintained that the church has decided to incorporate vocational training to empower people to be employers of labour rather than seeking for jobs that are not there.
“It is on the bases of that that are introducing business training that traverse areas like catering, confectionaries, soap making, event planning including music and drama.
“These will enable people to be able on their own do something for themselves, rather than depending on others. Before now, there is a department in the church which make the church impactful to its environment economically and socially,” he added.
