Thanksgiving, as CLAM celebrates anniversary
Christ Livingspring Apostolic Ministry (CLAM) marked its 20th anniversary, recently, with Senior Pastor Wole Oladiyun, the congregation and friends of the church giving thanks to God for His bountiful blessings through the years.
“We had our challenges, but the grace of God has been sufficient for us,” Oladiyun testified. “For 20 years of my calling, I have held crusades to improve people’s lives within and outside the church without collecting any offering from anyone. Lives have been transformed through various programmes of the church.”
Listing milestones, the Senior Pastor highlighted Soteria Maternity Hospital, built by the church to cater for the health of members and non-members. “We also have a farm settlement along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, where we employ youths every year to make food available to all Nigerians,” he said.
He explained that through the Voice of Joy and Gladness International Ministry, his wife, Pastor (Mrs.) Bukola Oladiyun, has organised youth empowerment programmes. He said participants were given starter packs to begin their own businesses, thereby reducing joblessness in the society.
Oladiyun advised faith-based organisations to move beyond prayer meetings and Bible teachings and apply scriptural principles to improve lives.
On the state of the nation, he said: “I am strongly advocating regional development in Nigeria. There is no region in the country, where there are no resources. If we fear God and operate in absolute humility, we will discover that the things we have been empowered with can improve people’s lives in the states, and there won’t be burden on the Federal Government.”
