A Case Study In An Irrevocable Covenant
Rev. Akindayomi and Pastor Adeboye are two of a type-broken Christians, pure, holy and obedient. Rev. Akindayomi went to glory in November 1980. By January 1981, Pastor Adeboye, a former senior lecturer in mathematics at the University of Lagos and later University of Ilorin took over 39 parishes of RCCG.
The Redeemed Christian Church of God is today, in over 175 countries, at last count, a total of 20,000 parishes around the globe. In major nations of the world, RCCG has a voice.
Three events that helped Pastor Adeboye’s tenure are the establishment of Model parishes which began in 1988 and the Holy Ghost Service (HGS) which started in 1985 and missions to foreign countries.
RCCG’S Social Responsibility policy is demonstrated by the establishment of micro ministries like RAPAC – to rehabilitate HIV/AIDS patients, CADAM – to rehabilitate drug addiction, HERITAGE HOME - habitation of hope for the homeless. Many of such children have graduated from the university; many more have learnt one vocational work or the other.
Three annual events bring millions of people together at the Redemption Camp from different parts of the world. These are the March special Holy Ghost Service, the August annual Convention and the December Holy Ghost Congress. Festival of life holds in London twice a year (April & October) and in Canada, USA, Paris, Northern Ireland and South Africa to mention a few. Our prayer is that God will continue to grand Daddy Adeboye greater anointing, more grace and God’s strength to him in Jesus name. Amen. .
