Elijah Samuel pastors a church in Lagos, Nigeria. In addition to having a vision for his own church to grow in spiritual health and maturity through the Small Groups Church Development Plan, Elijah and his senior pastor (Pastor Kola Emiola, based in Ibadan) have a shared vision of reaching out both locally in Nigeria and throughout the continent of Africa – making and claiming a promise of “Africa for the Kingdom”.
Pastor Elijah’s church in the New Oko-Oba area of Lagos is a branch of the Dominion Impact Church which has its base in Ibadan. We are delighted with the support that our new relationship is getting from the Senior Pastor, Kolawole Emiola (Kola), and their church board for the work that we are planning to do in and through this growing relationship.
Dominion Impact Church / Word of Righteousness Ministries (DIC) has an excellent reputation with a number of Western international ministries, who have and continue to work alongside DIC as they grow and reach out to their communities. CCI has conducted ‘due diligence’ research with many of these ministries and are delighted to report that the Senior Pastor (Kola Emiola) and the parent church are held in high regard. In the past few years DIC has seen great fruit from their outreach, community care and ‘back to school’ iniatives, and with CCI’s help we hope to continue these ministries as well as conduct a range of church development and christian leadership training programmes in Lagos, Ibadan and elsewhere in Nigeria and throughout Africa.
Please prayerfully consider making a donation to support Pastor Elijah and his church in Lagos, Nigeria.
If just 25 people commit to $10 a week ($520 in a year) that’s an amazing $13,000 investment in this humble servant leader and the work of his ministry. Your gifts will go towards providing a permanent internet service for the church and the pastor (about $300 set up plus $1,100 per year subscription), providing resources (food, clothing, etc.) for community outreach groups that are regularly reaching out to women, orphans, the unemployed and illiterate, and supporting small groups training courses for in-church leaders and other churches in the community.
