October 1, 2022
It was a time of jubilation and thanksgiving to the Almighty God at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Lagos Province 98 family in Ikorodu, Lagos as they celebrate a month of togetherness as Province and to mark Nigeria’s 62nd years of Independence with the theme: Together for Good.
The church which was inaugurated by the former Pastor-In-Charge of Region 26, Pastor Nath Adejuwon had commenced operation on September 1, 2022, on behalf of the church’s General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye with 22 Areas Headquarters which has progressively increased to 29 Area headquarters.
Speaking at the familiarization and appreciation service today, October 1st, 2022, the Pastor in Charge of Lagos Province 98, Pastor Sunday Adeniyi noted that our togetherness as a Province and a Nation is for good. God brought us together as ordained by Himself and for a good purpose.
Pastor Adeniyi in his sermon titled ‘Together for Good’ reading from book of Psalm 133: 1-3 said that how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity, and it is like precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard. He further explained that it was a divine mystery on how God brought us together as Province even though the deal has been sealed but within a short period everything was changed for better. He admonished members that it is not bad at all for us to be together rather it is for our advantage in Lagos Province 98.
Pastor Sunday told over one thousand congregation in attendance the power behind the element of unity with one vision which always result to an unexpected result as the case of tower of Babylon. He further encouraged members to depend on God in all the assignment because it is only God that is ever dependable and reliable in time like this.
He also expressed his confidence to members that sky will be their limit if they can imbibe with the following: by working with one another as a team which have a great and multiplier effect in the output; effective communication; by working together and labour together which means there shall be partnership in progress (support and help for everybody) and injury to one, injury to all; by waiting for one another (when we see danger, we alert one another); by witnessing with one another (there shall be massive and aggressive witness and results within and outside for double expansion of the Province).
Pastor Adeniyi also unveiled the Lagos Province 98 slogan as TOGETHER WE CAN which should be the province slogan to remind members that the above vision can achieve its purpose.
He also used the medium to introduce Provincial Officers/leadership to members: Pastor & Pastor (Mrs) Adegbola Arole, Assistant Pastor in Charge Province (CSR); Pastor & Pastor (Mrs) Paul Oloke Assistant Pastor in Charge Province (Admin); Pastor & Pastor (Mrs) Aigbode, Pastor in Charge (Provincial Church Growth Officer); 6 newly appointed Zonal Pastors (Pastor Adegboyega Orelaja; Pastor Goodluck Omotuyole; Pastor Sam Afe; Pastor Adelaja Sanya; Pastor Adefemi Akinrinmade and Pastor Victor Akindehin); Deaconess Funmi Oni, Provincial Admin Officer and A/P Deborah Adewale, Accountant; Pastor Kayode Onabole, Provincial Youth Pastor as well as Pastors in Charge of Areas and Parishes to the Church
In his opening prayer, the Pastor in Charge of Zone 3, Pastor Sam Afe prayed unto God for the Province to be reference point to other Churches as well as to produce additional Province in the next two to three years. And also prayed that the Province should be one of the best among Provinces in the country.
