CAN, PFN back Kumuyi for Lagos ministers’ summit


The Christian Association of Nigeria and  Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria have thrown their weight behind the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, who will be hosting a conference for ministers in Lagos.

The programme, tagged, ‘Ministers Development and Networking Summit,’ is slated for March 27 at the headquarters of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Gbagada, Lagos.

The summit is themed, ‘Building the Builders.’

The Chairman of Lagos CAN, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, and the Chairman of the state PFN, Bishop Sola Ore, during a press conference  on Tuesday said the summit would provide an opportunity for Christians to learn from one another.

He said, “Church ministry is a most responsible work in which no amount of conventional education can sufficiently prepare the minister. The minister’s training is an ongoing experience and he stands to gain a lot from God through others who have trod the path he is treading. Again, by comparing notes with other ministers and sharing experiences, he gains deeper insight into the work of the ministry and becomes effective and useful to his community.”

The CAN leader commended Kumuyi for the initiative, saying the  preacher had been a unifying force among Christians in the country.

Ore said he believed the training would also help to unite the church.

He added,  “Maintaining denominational differences is creating a lot of schism in the body of Christ. We believe this summit will provide Christian leaders, pastors, opportunity to experience some personal spiritual renewal. So, we are asking pastors and other children of God to come for this conference. It is not about bringing you to join a particular church. No more denomination barriers.”

Kumuyi, who also joined the briefing, prayed for everyone and the success of the programme.
