Sup. Evang. Prince Olayiwola Abegunde, Shepherd-in-charge of CCC Valley of Beracah Cathedral Possibility Arena, Olorunleke Ogun State, has started seeing the unusual of God in the ministry committed into his care by Jehovah. Having traveled far and wide, he thought of no other place to extend the gospel of Christ to than his hometown, Omu Aran, Kwara State. Ever since the pragmatic preacher and shepherd began ‘Omu Aran For Christ’, the event has recorded unprecedented success.
‘Omu-Aran For Christ’ will be the 3rd edition come Friday, January 7 2017 with additional peps added into it that will make this year’s edition a toast of everybody within and outside Omu Aran constituency.
The event has become an annual of diverse faith boosting testimonies and veritable proofs of God at work which often reflects in the land and people of Omu-Aran. People converge to rebuke premature death in the New Year through fervent prayers to all sons and daughters of the soil. It’s slated to hold at Olomu of Omu-Aran Palace near Irepodun Local Government secretariat, Kwara.
This gathering of bishops, pastors, kings, chiefs, men, women and children, is an open crusade which will also have all Celestial Church members in Kwara State together to pray for the town on first Friday of every January of the New Year. No doubt, this year’s event will be an exposition of beliefs, love and unity coupled with God’s blessings.
According to Prince Abegunde a.k.a De Pathfinder, “Before now, nobody knew Celestial Church of Christ in my town until I started this event. Though, there were a few Celestial Church parishes around but they never had any recognition but since I started the programme, there has been massive increase in the number of parishioners as the people are really getting converted into the fold on daily basis. The whole idea is to purge the minds of those who thing Celestial Church members are fetish as perceived by many.
We had Ven. Sup. Evang. Olusegun Olarinde in the last edition. He gave the sermon for the second edition early this year. The movement led to him assuring us of his presence again the coming one this January, 2017. We have had prominent Celestial members on the programme and we will continue to bring new things into it.”
