I like to express my profound gratitude to God who made all things possible for this year 2019 Men’s fellowship conference hold in spite of all taunting challenges . May His name be praised for ever in Jesus name. Amen
On behalf of myself, the men fellowship Excom and the great men in this Mission, I say a big thank you to our father, the Grand Patron of our fellowship and the General Overseer of this great Mission Pastor(Dr) E.O Abina. He remains a strong pillar of immense support for our fellowship. From the inception, papa had a dream of Gofamint men of greatness, value, dynamism and relevance for this fellowship. We are not there yet but we are gradually manifesting the traits. By the grace of God papa’s dreams will fully manifest in his life time. Amen.
This special appreciation will be incomplete without the mention of our other fathers, the Deputy general overseer Pastor Dr. Emmanuel Oluwayemi and the General Secretary of this mission Pastor S. O Omowumi for their regular counsels for the growth of this fellowship. For this and more we cannot thank you enough.
Men and ministers of God in this church (Gofamint), it is certainly overdue for us to take our rightful position in this Mission, at all levels and indeed in all spheres of life. The Lord will help us in this challenge. Specifically we need to show up more in church responsibilities in order to reposition and put this church in her proper perspective in the midst of other Pentecostal churches in Nigeria and beyond. We are TOTAL, GODLY and TRANSFORMED men. In this conference we want to examine ourselves in the light of our preparedness for the KINGDOM of God which is the final destination of all truly transformed men.
IN this year conference please expect to be richly blessed in the various lecture topics packaged for you already. As usual we have been able to assemble seasoned ministers and teachers of the word of God. At the end, you will be glad you never miss to attend this year conference
More over. we have taken measures we feel adequate in planning for this year conference for your maximum enjoyment and benefit. This is not a promise of a perfect or flawless conference. We are all humans. If there are shortcomings in due course, we will use them as a learning curve for better future plans. On this note, we solicit for full cooperation throughout the period of this conference.
Regarding accommodation, this is a common concern to all of us hence. We are expected to appreciate this reality and hence manage what is available. During this conference we will be called upon to make a very little sacrifice to secure a bed place per night. There will be four meals in all. Arrangement has been made to make serving stress free. The modalities will be announced at the appropriate intervals.
There will be no football match this year. However, for our relaxation, a praise night is organized to hold tomorrow Friday April 5, from 8 to 11pm. We are expecting a guest artist AYIN O OWOEYE AND HIS OLIVE VOICES
As I end this address I render my dedicated appreciation to all men leaders at all levels especially the conference planning committee members whose selfless service, unusual sacrifice and commitment to the success of this conference remains a source of inspiration to me.
God bless all of you.l
Thank you I wish you a blessing packed full conference.
