Pastor-In-Charge of Region 11 of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Charles Kpandei has urged pastors to approach their divine assignments with a pure conscience that guarantees their position in eternity and also their life here on earth.
He gave the counsel at the inauguration of Youth Province 7 of the RCCG on Sunday, February 7.
Kpandei who spoke at a special Welcome Service for the new Province held at its Headquarters, the Glory2Gory House, Magodo, preached from 1 Timothy 1:19.
He noted that the world was witnessing a lot of spirituality without conscience, adding that it was a sign of the end times as prophesied by the Bible.
Faith without conscience leads to a shipwreck of assignment
Kpandei, like Paul, warned Timothy in the scripture he cited, also warned that faith and spirituality without a clear conscience would only lead men to shipwreck their God-given assignments.
The elevation of the new Glory2Glory House to a Provincial Headquarters, headed by Pastor-In-Charge of Province, Pastor Jacob Obaro, caps a major turnaround for the parish that was until 2017 an Area Headquarters.
Highlighting the turnaround, Pastor Obaro, who has been involved with the mission’s Youth Ministry for twenty years, said when he and his wife, Pastor Mrs. Obaro arrived at Glory2Glory House in 2017, they had to study the terrain to determine the most effective way of pastoring youths.
“Coming here, it was to study the terrain, understand the language of the generation, and then helping the youths to discover, develop and deploy their talents,” he said.
He added: ‘The young people saw an atmosphere where they could express their hidden talents; some of which they did not even know before, so they have been committed.
He maintained that as a church, Glory2Glory House was committed to the overall development of youths through the specially-designed SOS or spiritual development, occupational relevance, and social networking.
The new province, which has Pastor John Tosin Oludoyin as the Assistant Pastor-In-Charge, is taking off with sixty-eight parishes under it.
