Adedoye has ordained 2000 full-time pastors at RCCG Convention
IDOMA VOICE reports that there was excitement at the weekend as no fewer than 2,000 pastors entered the full-time ministry of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) at the 70th Annual Convention and 40th anniversary of the church.
The newly ordained pastors were presented to the General Overseer RCCG Pastor Enoch Adeboye by the outgoing National Overseer, Pastor Josiah Obayemi.
The ordination took about 40minutes as the choir gave soul-lifting songs.
Delivering a sermon at the programme, the Intercontinental Overseer, Africa, RCCG, Pastor Ezekiel Odeyemi charged the newly ordained pastors to utilise the grace and anointing of God upon their lives toward winning souls for Christ.
He made several references to the scriptures, saying that the anointing of God poured on men of old in the scripture made them to the extraordinary exploits for God.
Odeyemi said that the anointing upon the pastors is to deliver the oppressed, heal the sick, set the captives free, stressing that the anointing should not be commercialised or abused to avoid grave consequences.
