The Coordinator of the Ministers Forum, Prophet Joseph Igbodo, has during the Ministers Conference at Ekuku-Agbor, donated a cow, food items and toiletries to the ministers and church workers within the zone.
The Ministers Forum is an organization of Gospel Ministers who are determined to make the Body of Christ in Ika Land more focused and committed as one indivisible family by coming together in Prayers and mapping out modalities on how best to assist one another in time of need.
The Ministers Conference which took place on Friday, January 29, 2021, at the church auditorium of Divine Glory Resurrection Gospel Church, Ekuku-Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State, recorded large turnout, with about Two hundred ministers of God and other church workers in attendance.
Speaking on the message he titled, “How Do You Start The New Year? When God Said You Should Put Him First”, the Guest Speaker, Prophet Joseph Igbodo, the General Overseer of Divine Faith Evangelical Mission International, Agbor, took his Bible reading from the books of Hebrews 13:9-10, Psalms 68:11-22 and Second Chronicles 17:6.
Admonishing the gathering, he informed them that he came to celebrate the New Year for the ministers and church workers in Ekuku-Agbor Zone, saying that he tested them and they passed his examination successfully, disclosing that appreciated their large turnout when they honoured his invitation on 1st January 2021, and joined him with members of his congregation to commence this year’s annual 40 days fasting and prayers to usher in the new year. Continuing, he stated that food is the enemy of man, hence the need for one to be fully involved in fasting and prayers, starting from the first day of the year. He encouraged the ministers and conference delegates to imbibe the habit of commencing the new year with fasting and prayers from the first day of January every year, emphasizing that if they want to become Ministers of God that carries the anointing and fire of God for signs and wonders, they should continuously dwell in fasting and prayers. He noted that because some men of God do not take right counsel, that is why the rate of poverty is so pronounced in their lives and Ministry. He urged them to change their wrong doctrines which are not profitable.
Speaking further, the Elect of God, who is also the Proprietor of Job Orphanage Home and the Proprietor of St. Stephen Trust Widows Home, both in Agbor, noted that when they as Ministers are fully involved in the task of evangelism, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ continually, then will the anointing of God rest upon them. He charged them to work hard in preaching the gospel so that the rain from heaven will come upon them and people from all walks of life will begin to honour them. He reminded the ministers that God choose and ordained them to bear fruits revealing that prosperity is one of the benefits of preaching the word of God, stressing that open heaven is not meant for lazy Pastors, he noted that what makes people to be convinced about the presence of God in the Ministry is Miracles. He Prayed God to forgive them their mistakes and bring them back to salvation.
Prophet Igbodo, further enjoined the ministers in the zone to coordinate and put in place, Widows Forum, in Ekuku-Agbor Community, so that he will be coming to visit them with food items as their counterparts in other communities under the umbrella of St. Stephen Trust Widows Home.
