That Superior Evangelist John Bada, the son of Rev. A. A Bada, the late pastor and Supreme Head of Celestial Church of Christ worldwide is a man of great spiritual calling and depth is not in doubt going by the way God has been using him from childhood. He was the first person as a child born into the church to be pronounced a Shepherd during his christening day service and later became the first person to start and shepherd the very first student parish of the church in Ibadan in 1976 at the children home school, Molete.
Late sup. Evangelist. Ogunlesi was made the patron of the church by Baba Bada who set up the parish alter himself. John Bada is also blessed in field of broadcasting. He is a consummate and veteran broadcaster of note and in fact one of the best Nigeria has ever produced. He is divinely blessed in evangelism with great knowledge and understanding of the church which comes naturally to him and this has been noticed and acknowledged over the years. He has constantly defended the position of the church, for instance in the 1986 edition of African Guardian Newspaper he strongly defended the position of the church on cultism that Celestial Church of Christ is not a secret cult but a divine church of God and owned by Christ Himself and the location of some of the parishes in areas with proximity to rivers were mere coincident, had no spiritual or magical undertone attached.
The divine wisdom and courage given to him by God did greatly endeared him to Papa Oshoffa and baba Bada who loved him dearly not only as a son but, both men took him as a their confidant and friend, who advised them on issues both personal and as it concerned the church, his age not being a barrier. John Bada on his part is very passionate and proud to have both great icons of faith as his fathers and mentors not losing sight of the rare privilege and honour it meant to have enjoyed the tutelage of these two colossus.
CNO met and spoke with him recently at his residence at the mission house of the church at Ketu where he narrates a great revelation with spiritual insight to the church.
This is coming up in our next post.
