There is no doubt that the just concluded 10th-year Anniversary of Grace Way Chapel International was a remarkable experience following amazing testimonies from the inception of the ministry. The ministry at large has been experiencing great grace from the beginning of the ministry and to date, the hand of the Lord has greatly worked out wonders in the lives of members of the ministry.
The presiding pastor, Rev. Tunde Kajogbola giving his welcome address during the 10th year anniversary, shed tears of joy as he recalled how the ministry began. “I could remember the year we moved into the Church ground, we were welcomed by palm trees, shrubs, cassava stems, roots, and snakes yet miraculously we secured the land according to the leading of God and precisely on April 28, 2013, the inaugural service was held with about 120 participants among whom were friends, family, associates who to the glory of God are now members of this great ministry”. He added that today, the ministry has enjoyed unimaginable mercy and favour from the Lord as we have recorded great testimonies among members of this ministry ranging from the salvation of souls of our members, a divine breakthrough for members, many who joined us in tears are now experiencing great joy, the waiting mothers God had miraculously visited them, some are now landlords/landladies to the glory of God, our students are waxing stronger academically and families are enjoying God through this mandate.
However, Grace Way Chapel International which started as a fellowship with just 13 members has grown to full fledge ministries with branches across 3 states in Nigeria. The ministry has greatly expanded its tentacles to youth development, a scholarship that started last year for Grace Way Chapel Students, and has now become a great blessing as many students had benefited from the programme.
Dr. Kajogbola speaking on the growth of the Church, attributed all glory to God as well as commitment to the harvest of souls which is the central focus of the mandate, as he continually trusts God to strengthen them to do more for the Lord.
However, the highlight of the 10th year anniversary was the Special Prayer Meeting Bojuwomi, the celebration of Christian Women on their knee held by Pst. Mrs. Olamide Kajogbola, the special impartation night, the Minister’s Conference and the grand finale of the programme
Specifically on Wednesday at the special Bojuwomi Prayer Meeting, Prophet Olanrewaju charged participants never to joke with their salvation experience as he shared testimony of how he encountered God; he therefore said a life without Christ will always experience crisis as he encouraged participants to surrender their hearts to God.
Also at the celebration of Christian Women on their Knee, Pastor Mrs. Tosin Jesutoki; spoke on the theme “Daughters of Zion women to strive to live to be relevant in their homes, Church, and Community at large in order to represent their father who is in Heaven.
The session of impartation night was amazing as participants were prophetically prayed for by Prophet Ayo Alatunse Adegbuyiro of Christ Apostolic Church Ireti Ayo.
Ministers’ Conference was also one of the major highlights of the 10th anniversary which drew participants from various ministries, speaking on the theme “Who is this” at the ministers’ conference, Pastor Gideon Oladokun, Chairman CAC DCC; Itire charged participants to embrace the fullness of Christ who has come to give the whole peace by liberating them from the power of iniquity as he beseeches participants to disengage themselves from every activity that can make people question the integrity of their God adding that Pastors have defiled Christian. Pastors have caused a lot of distraction in the body of Christ but advised that they should stand firm in truth and righteousness.
The grand finale of the 10th-year celebration was tagged “Come and See” an affirmation word that connotes the faithfulness of God on the General Overseer of Grace Way Chapel International, the family, and the members of the ministry at large as they rolled out drums to celebrate the awesomeness of God’s mercy since the beginning of the ministries.
The celebration was a huge success as dignitaries and prominent personalities graced the occasion, among them was the president of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, Rev. Dr. Israel Akanji who ministered at the grand finale of the program, Pastor Joseph Adelakun, a.k.a Ayewa, Prophetess Mary Alarape, Rev. Dr. Tunji Bamgbose, Chairman Lagos West Baptist Conference, Evang. Akintunde Elijah and kings from…..
