Reacting to a story we posted on #CNO, Barrister Olawole Famakinwa said Ketu doesn’t know about church planting, they only know how to collect Ipin from people that strive to plant the Parish. Was this the plan of Papa SBJ Oshoffa? Are church’s headquarters only meant to collect money and not to look into the welfare of their people? If this is the way it’s then, as a matter of urgency, the youths need to start fighting for the future of this church.
Little wonder a lot of shepherds, prophets etc are doing anyhow, and no authority has said a word. Letters from students from Celestial campus fellowships are ignored while quick response was given to letter of invitation from SFU when being alleged of fraudulent practices. Maybe you are not getting it, there is no future plan for this church by these leaders, so, what are they all doing? Sit down and say we are the authority, what authority?
This is a comment from the barrister, he belongs to Ketu caucus but he sees things in different light because he’s lettered.
“I would like to commend the Students of OSUSTECH on their ability to acquire a plot of land, from their lean resources. God is not unmindful of the sacrifice they are making for future students who will come to worship in the Worship Centre.
I read the excellent letter requesting financial assistance. This letter should have included the bank account details which I found in another part of the article. Put the account details in the letter. I intend to contribute my own token towards this building. I enjoin all lovers of the progress of Gods Kingdom work to donate to this worthy project. The Lord will build a mansion in heaven for participants in this project. Amen.
Writing to Ketu was very appropriate. Expecting an acknowledgement of your letter or financial support from Ketu was an optimistic dream too far. Our Church does not support church planting. However when the building is ready and membership thriving, Ketu will ask for the Pastor share (ipin) on a regular basis. The least Ketu should have done, if they are pleading poverty was to reply the letter requesting financial assistance and to pray for the Students Parish.
Ketu should have sent a copy of the letter to the District Evangelist in close proximity to the Students Parish instructing the District Evangelist to give both moral and financial support. The District Evangelist may devote a share of his Ipin to be a seed planted in the Students Parish. He can lend other valuable leadership and mentoring assistance. I believe the letter from the Students Parish will not see the light of day or any action. It is either gathering dust in a cupboard or been thrown in the dust bin. This is a shame on the Admin Staff of the Pastor’s Office. It is very demoralizing for the Youth of tomorrow!
I intend to speak with a very dynamic CCC Youth leader named Bro. Demola Bolaji of the Greater Tomorrow group for his thoughts and assistance. He should actively involve in this Students Parish and all other Students Parishes. This should be Bro Ademola’s constituency.
I am aware that there is a CCC Youth and Training Team led by Professor Uwart. What is their role? I would suggest the Students Parish finds this man and his team for support. The Youth is the future of CCC if they are going to drift to RCCG, Winners Chapel, Mountain of Fire. These other church’s actively support church planting and Youth Development. The CCC does not. I stand to be corrected.
Finally, I suggest that the Students Parish divide the project into handful stages and proceed accordingly. Find out how many blocks, sand, iron rods and bags of cement will do the foundation. Ask local Parishes to support you with this so you do not lose the plot of land. Little drops of water will become your large ocean in Jesus name. Amen.”
