The Lagos State Chapter of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria has sent a goodwill message to the national president of the fellowship, Bishop Wale Oke who clocks 65 today September 8.
In the message signed by the fellowship’s secretary, Apostle Akin Akindejoye, and its chairman, Apostle Eyinnaya Okwuonu, the fellowship expressed great joy and appreciation to God for the life of the PFN president.
The chapter noted the positive impact Bishop Oke has made in the church in Nigeria since his emergence as the PFN National President.
It expressed its commitment to the 10-point agenda of Bishop Oke, “aimed at strategically consolidating” the Fellowship as a force to reckon with in the country.
It states further, “As we felicitate with you today, our desire and prayer is that the good Lord will continue to multiply his grace upon you and that during your tenure PFN would have attained that enviable height you envisioned for her. We further pray that your service to the Lord will be rewarded with good health, peace, and prosperity and as your days are so shall your strength be.”
Bishop Oke was born in Kasumu, Egbeda local government area of Oyo State, Nigeria, on September 8th, 1956. He is the President, Sword of the Spirit Ministry, Ibadan, and the presiding Bishop of Christ Life Church, worldwide.
He once told the story of how he abandoned his Engineering degree after graduation from the University of Lagos in 1982 for the work of the ministry. That was in spite of tempting job offers from corporate Organisations. He has since been in ministry for 39 years and has been strategic in the evolution of the Pentecostal movement in Nigeria. He was a leading figure in the revival that engulfed the old soviet union after the collapse of communism.
His ministry has taken him around the globe preaching and teaching the word of God with miracles, signs, and wonders following in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Bishop Francis is the convener of the annual Holy Ghost Convention in Ibadan since 1983. He says he has a divine mandate to bring 100 million souls to heaven.
He became the National President of the PFN in March 2021.
