Staten Island’s Oneness In Christ: Three Pastors Control One Parish

May 9, 2022 / Alonge Michael / Spotlight / 2 Comments »

With all of the things that are currently happening in Celestial Church right now, I think we need a message of togetherness and true unity as being displayed by one of our Parishes in the US Diocese.

#cno believes that the parish members of Staten Island, USA which used to be bustling with chaos has today become a centre of unity and harmony. How?

Findings through their Instagram post recently reveal to #cno that, the members, especially three elders, with their reflections, have been able to find kindness toward each other.

They say, unity is strength, but only when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.

Now let me burst your bubble, there are three elders in that Parish, Staten Island who share allegiance to three different pastors.

1. Sumbo Ojo: A foundation member of Staten Island, a prophet and a follower of Rev EMF at Ketu. At a time, he left the Parish when the hit was too much to bear under the leadership of Baba Kaka Oyetibo. He is wearing the title of AVSE robed by Ketu leadership.

2. Nicholas Owoyemi: He is said to be one of the resourceful members of that parish, soft-spoken but very shrewd. He belongs to the Supreme Headquarters, Porto-Novo where he wears the rank of full Venerable Superior Evangelist got from Baba Sakete in the Republic of Benin.

3. Kunle Akindude: Since the centre holds no more at the apex body of the church in Ketu, Alagba Kunle Akindude is from the Rev Omoge of the Diocese faction and he wears Most Sup. Evangelist rank.

Despite all these ranks and positions, these three Musketeers never clashed, from the look of things, they seem to have an understanding of the relationship that ensued amongst them. And that, they quite know that this is the house of God and respect should be reciprocated.

Do we now say the Parish is getting her groove back after the storm? Well, we can say that. The character cannot be developed with ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

We wish them continued oneness in Christ!

However, it can not be true that the duo from the above-named trio are trying to ostracise Prophet Sunbo Ojo from the Church; I am sure, rumour mongers are only trying to cause a division in that parish.

An effort to talk with any of them before going to press was futile as none of them picked up their calls after several attempts.

    AVSE SUMBO OJO is a loyal and follower of Christ Jesus’in Celestial church of Christ. Staten island Parish and he is 100% loyal to Legitimate seat of Celestial Church of Christ i.e Makoko, Ketu and Imeko which is led under the leadership of His Eminence Reverend Pastor EMF Oshoffa .
    Baba Sumbo is a peace loving man of God despite some conspiracy against him in the Parish for reason best known to them. He still maintain His cool serving God with all diligence and humility.
    Baba Sumbo Ojo acts of maturity is commendable in the face of humiliation and deliberate attempts to ridicule him by some of the Church elders, yet he is not bitter neither concerned . So I can say his elderly display of leadership and tolerance is the major reason why peace is sustained in the Parish.
    I also enjoy others to emulate him and drop every act capable of disturbing peace and order in the Church.
    God bless Celestial Church Of Christ, Staten Island.

    The truth is that the Parish is under ketu and it was never an issue. This location is 3 blocks from my house and I find it convenient to worship there, I am not in anyway involved in the day to day running of the affairs of the parish. There is a caretaker committee and Board of Trustee of which I do not belong. Thank God peace is returning to the house of God. Old members are coming back and new ones are trooping in.Alleluia
