The 2017 International Pastors and Partners Conference (IPPC) is different from previous editions. Its uniqueness stems primarily from the fact that it is happening at a time the Believer’s Loveworld nation is basking in a celebratory mood to mark 30 years of uncommon exploits as a Ministry.
For some delegates who have not been in the Ministry for long, this was a golden opportunity to walk along the journey some esteemed Pastors took when the left all to follow Pastor Chris amid opposition from family and friends.
Reliving some of the experiences and highpoints of this awesome pathway they chose, Pastor Archie Aseme, the Zonal Pastor of Christ Embassy Onitsha Zone and Pastor Wale Adenuga, the Virtual Zonal Pastor of Christ Embassy Uyo shared their testimonies which enlivened the atmosphere.
Pastor Archie Aseme emphasized how he has been able to remain committed to spreading the gospel in and outside his catchment since his first contact with the President of the Ministry, Reverend Chris Oyakhilome, and how his personal life has not remained the same again.
Pastor Wale Adenuga told delegates of how he was able to define the essence of true Christianity after his first visit to the ministry in 1991, which marked a major turning point in his understanding of Christianity. And since then, he has never looked back. His life he said has been a projectile from one level of glory to another.
Pastors Chidi Ezimako, the Virtual Regional Pastor of the Eastern Europe Region, Pastor Kemi Adesina, the Pastor of Christ Embassy Barkin, in the United Kingdom and Pastor Aloy Okei, the Virtual Zonal Pastor of the United States Zone all shared outstanding testimonies of their first contact with the President of the Ministry and how it made an indelible impact in their lives. This according to their testimonies has helped them remain true to the Believers Loveworld exceptionalism.
As Partners were ushered into the Conference in a colourful opening ceremony, it has indeed been a great time of celebration as more testimonies have poured in from Pastors Siji Dara, Pastor Elizabeth Akinwolemiwa, Pastor Sarah Obiazi and many more on how they have remained true to the vision of the ministry: taking God’s divine presence to the peoples and nations of the earth. It’s been indeed, three decades of maximum impact. From all testimonials not only from pastors but also from brethren who have been in this Ministry for a long time, it is self evident fact that no one came in contact with Pastor Chris teaching and remained the same again.
