CHRIST Publishers’ Ministries, a mother ministry that encompasses the Interwoven Cord Network and the Gospel House recently celebrated its 20th and first anniversaries respectively. Family, friends, pastors, and ministers all gathered at the Excellence Hotel, Ogba to celebrate the milestone.

  According to the marriage relationship counsellor and conflict resolution expert, Rev. Eliashib Ime-James, the journey that began over 20 years ago has been fulfilling.  

  “I have connected not less than 35 families through my networking; I have reconciled close to 100 families. I train single ladies to prepare them for marriage, which I do through the social media, and it spreads across the world. I am ensuring that they know what they are going into, as one of the challenges we face in marriage is impatience, when we refuse to understand. I am preparing their minds to accept the realities of marriage. 

  The senior pastor also noted that the Gospel House has become part of the ministry, as it became necessary to have a place for people to worship after counselling them.

  On his message to Christians as the elections draw near, he said, “we should be careful not to reject Samuel because of his seemingly docility and receive Saul, who became a thorn in the flesh.”

  Commenting on the issue of paying ‘gate fees’ to attend a church programme, he noted that even though he is not presently in Christ Embassy, he couldn’t disassociate himself from them because it is the body of Christ. 

  “However, what they were doing is not asking people to pay. Pastor Chris is highly anointed and it became an issue that whenever there is a programme, every member of the church wants to go to the place, where he is, which is not big enough to contain them and so, they brought up the issue of ticketing. The church on the other hand has to be run by something. It is with money you print the ticket and maintain the edifice, where the event was held.”
