Resident Pastor

Christian Missiins in Many Lands, Inc.(CMML)

Taking care of the flock of God in the Assembly at Abejukolo Ife, Omala Local Government area of Kogi State of Nigeria. Major task was to establish the Eldership leadership and a vibrant youth ministry. An accomplishment is the establishment of the Sunday school which made the church literally a school before leaving. Refocusing the thoughts of the Assembly from the 'Another Gospel' which has gained so much ground in the area was a vital assignment. instilling the spirit of the Berean Christians in them was a successful one as we searched the scriptures twice weekly. God has been faithful.

Diocese of Abuja, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion)

Evangelist in Charge of the Anglican Church, Mabuchi, Abuja.

This was a Church revival assignment. The Church had been planted for about 2 years but needs its presence and spiritual leadership as there was no Pastor posted to the Church. Membership drive was the major assignment. Discipleship had to establish the people and sound teaching was needed to keep the place sound and alive. A venue was needed so we moved and started in a hotel but  now have finally settled in a primary school.

CMML Church

A Three Months Pastoral Assignment as a Practicum

It was a village Church with a membership strength of about 150. lukewarmness was the major issue facing the church prior to my posting there. We started weekly Bible Studies for the whole church and Discipleship class for a selected few who will be able to cater for the church after I might have gone back to school. We focused on the Spiritual rebuilding of the Church (Members) which is being taught in the Church. After about a month, the disciples began taking turns in leading the services, teaching in the Bible studies and preaching on Sunday services. About half a dozen of the disciples are now trained pastors in the CMML Churches across Igala Land.
