The Redeemed Christian Church Of God has just ordained new sets of Deacons and Deaconesses. The ordination took place at the Redemption Camp ground on the 5th of August, 2019 which is the first day of the Annual Convention themed “And God Said”.
The ordination of workers is done every year during the convention and it’s purpose is to bring in laborers into the work field who will help in harvesting souls and bring them into the kingdom of God.
However, before the commencement of the ordination, a 4 day Minister’s Conference was organized for all the ministers in RCCG where Pastor E.A Adeboye spoke on Obedience and the need to wake up spiritually.
The program started around 7:30am with the Praise and Worship, by 8:30am the ordinees were anointed and laid hands on by the Senior Pastor in RCCG. Afterwards, Pastor Adeboye made a proclamation on the newly ordained deacons and deaconesses which were over 12,000 in number.
Present at the program was Pastor Charles Achonwa who gave a little exhortation on having a passion for soul winning. The theme of his message was “And God Said, Go Ye”, he also urged the new ministers to use the fresh anointing just received to bring more souls to God’s kingdom and to also work together in the spirit of unity.
