We want to prepare saints for Christ’s coming at retreat, says Kumuyi
The General Superintendent, Pastor William F. Kumuyi, who stated that the focus of the retreat would be on preparing saints for Christ’s return, said it would also afford participants the opportunity of experiencing divine intervention in their lives.
Kumuyi stated that although the current socio-economic challenges in the country may have agitated the minds of many citizens, he urged Nigerians to lessen their apprehensions and fear about the coming year, urging them to place their absolute trust in God.
The cleric’s assurances were contained in a statement signed on his behalf by Pastor Jerry Asemota, the Church Secretary, which formally announced the national December retreat.
He said that although it is the will of God that people should enjoy economic prosperity, yet the preservation of men’s souls for eternal bliss remains God’s greatest plan for mankind.
“At this time, we must emphasise, once again, the need for people to think beyond their existence here; we want them to know that there is a place far better than this present world. Whatever anyone may be enjoying here cannot be compared to what God has prepared for those who love Him in Heaven. Whether we eat or drink, we must always be conscious of the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
“The year has been challenging. It is not strange to us because we have been fore-warned that perilous times will come. It is against this backdrop that we urge everyone to come and experience Christ, the Hope of glory,” he said.
Kumuyi, who urged all Nigerians to take advantage of the programme, which will hold at the Deeper Life Conference Centre (DLCC), Km 42, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, and in all the states of the federation via satellite from DLCC to other centres in Nigeria, Africa, Europe, America and other continents of the world where the church has its branches from Thursday, December 24, to Sunday, December 27, said God has designed packages through the yearly camp meeting for many as are willing to enjoy sacred divine direction and intervention in their lives.
The statement added that the retreat, like others in the past, would feature concentrated messages from Pastor Kumuyi and other anointed ministers in the church, seminars, workshops, soul-lifting choir renditions and prayer ministrations.
