CCC reiterates commitment to youth development
The Celestial Church of Christ (CCC) has pledged commitment to youth development through training on digital marketing skills and how to access business funding.
This is to ensure the youths are at par with the evolving trend and to create opportunities to leverage skills for economic development.
Speaking at a media parley to commemorate the church’s 70th anniversary, Harvest Chairman, Gbenga Adebayo, said, “We want to teach them how to catch fish and not hand it over to them. We would show them how to use the skills they have acquired to get the needed finance.”
He noted that in giving back, after a series of dialogues with Makoko community to determine projects best suited to them, the church has committed to projects on drinkable water and education.
“We don’t want to embark on a project that won’t be useful to the community. They have told us they have issues with the quality of water and education. We are partnering with Local Council Development Area (LCDA) to do a legacy project for the community.”
Another activity lined up for the anniversary is free medical outreach for the community, which would give the community access to free drugs, eye check-ups, and free glasses.
According to Adebayo, being the first church established by the late Pastor and founder, Reverend Samuel Bilewu Joseph (SBJ) Oshoffa, the 70th anniversary of the Makoko parish is a significant milestone in the evolution of the church.
“The month-long celebration will feature other activities such as the provision of relief materials, public gala and award Dinner, open-air revival, music concert anniversary thanksgiving service, and love feast,” he added.
Assistant Most Superior Evangelist Olusegun Olarinde, noted that the theme ‘Return to the Lord’, which is anchored on the book of Jeremiah 29 vs 10, added that the anniversary event will run from June 27 to August 2, 2021.
