Lead Apostle, Apostles, Bishops and Chief Seminar Tutors during the workshop conducted by District Elder Wolfgang Oehler (Seminar Co-ordinator West Africa)
30 July 2018

Lead Apostle Nwogu, all Apostles and Bishops, as well as Seminar Chief Tutors and their assistants spent a whole week in Lagos, West Nigeria, fully engaged in a range of activities. These included seminar workshops, consultative meetings and Divine Services.  The week started from the 16th to 22nd of July 2018.

On Wednesday the 18th of July 2018, the Lead Apostle together with the Apostles and Bishops celebrated Divine Service at the Central church with the text word taken from 1 Samuel 9:27,  ‘As they were going down to the outskirts of the city, Samuel said to Saul, “Tell the servant to go on ahead of us.” And he went on. “But you stand here awhile, that I may announce to you the word of God.”’

The Lead Apostle in his sermon said, “The coming of Jesus is the greatest Event under Heaven to happen. The Lord delights in us and have chosen us not because of our worth but he loved us first by giving us his only son”. He further added that Jesus Christ has gone to prepare a place for us and, requires of us to love others as He loved us first, keep His commandments, take His work seriously, confess Him to the world and show love to our brethren by leading them the right way.

The Lead apostle concluded by asking all members to follow these instructions in order to witness the Kingdom which our Lord Jesus Christ has gone to prepare for us. A total of 99 members attended this midweek Divine Service.

On Sunday the 22nd of July, the Apostles dispersed to serve in all 9 congregations in the Lagos District simultaneously. Lead Apostle Nwogu and the host, Apostle Hagher served at the Surulere congregation.
