Prophet TB Joshua

Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, controversial founder of the Lagos-based Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, is one of those regularly slated. And it is perhaps for this reason that his church has decided to catalogue its various humanitarian interventions.
This is made available in a 352-page pictorial book, Roadmap: Reaching Out To A Troubled World. The book, a commendable Public Relations effort, details in a vivid language, the various ways Joshua has touched lives locally and internationally through his ministry. “The humanitarian arm of the SCOAN has projects caterng for the needs of widows and widowers, little people, the elderly, the physically challenged, orphans and the impoverished. As part of its international disaster relief efforts, the SCOAN has established a permanent primary health clinic in Haiti. The church provides scholarship to orphans and children of the less privileged, with educational support given to university level. There is also a rehabilitation programme for armed robbers and prostitutes through which they are financially supported to enable them secure practical vocations,” the introduction reads.
A picture tells a thousand stories, as the saying goes. The book uses glossy and colourful photographs to push the veracity of the church’s claims.

» announced that his ministry was not just to perform miracles but to also empower members, as the third edition of the crusade became another avenue for him to carry out his mandate.
According to a post on the church’s website, the Lagos conference was ‘indeed an end to negative stories and beginning of new glories because God is still using His prophets to restore, renew and refocus, while prophetic encounters still happen all the time.’
“A young man, Ademola Adeniyi, a resident of 23, Oworotimi Street, Ijegun area of the state, was among those met with divine encounters on the day-one of the conference.
In life, storms must come, charged Suleman while he prayed for Ademola who had suffered paraplegia, which affected half of his body and both legs making him unable to walk for years. With faith, the affected man swung from the wheelchair and walked.
Ngozi , a teacher and a mother of six, experienced divine healing at the crusade. Ngozi whose marriage suffered hitches and seriously impacted her health, was prayed for and healed of blood pressure that was threatening her life.
On the second day of the conference, a blind woman had her sight restored by a junior minister,
Pastor Courage Imolore , who after being transferred with an anointing for the miraculous, laid his hands on her.
The conference sessions involved not just healings, prayers and deliverance, as it also witnessed divine visitations.
Apostle Suleman, while ministering, urged his congregation to believe that they can be exempted from economic disaster.

Pastor Biodun Fatoyibo
(Founder of The Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA))

Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo is regarded as one of the most stylish, well put together clerics » in the country.
Looking at him now, it is quite hard to imagine a time when he was not this polished but that time actually existed.
The founder of The Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) recently shared his grass to grace story on Instagram.
From Grass to Grace
Via his account, he revealed how things were in the beginning while thanking his wife, Modele Fatoyinbo, for standing by him through those tough times.
He also thanked the Methodist Church in Nigeria for honouring him with an Honorific Award for Evangelism.
Pastor Biodun wrote, “ Babe, we walked the streets of Ilorin together looking for people to preach the gospel to. We didn’t have any car, I had just one trouser, we didn’t have technology or finance to increase our reach, there were holes in your shoes.
“We had to do it one person per time. I’m fully aware that God will reward us for our labour, but I am also thankful to the Methodist Church in Nigeria for presenting us with this Honorific Award for Evangelism! We haven’t lost that same passion and we never will! We are ever committed to winning souls for Christ!
“Thank you, Modele for always standing with me and running with me and running with the vision! I’m blessed to have you!”
If Pastor Fatoyinbo can do it, we all can.
COZA
Pastor Fatoyinbo’s may have started small in 1999 but it is definitely a long way from there.
Now, COZA is a megachurch with a huge following, which makes the pastor one of the most remarkable Men of God from 1960 till now.
The church has five branches, one in Ilorin, Abuja, a Lagos branch, a Port Harcourt branch and another in Dubai.
The church is a magnet for young people who are in love with everything about the place of worship.

Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere
(Omega Power Ministries)

LEADERSHIP – There are people who God has sent to redeem the lives of people who fate have been so unfortunate to . One of such persons is the General Overseer of the Omega Power Ministries popularly known as OPM.
The life of Mrs . Gladys Okon ( not real name ) exemplifies what the man of God who has given succor to those in need is doing to transform the lives of the common people not to talk of his spiritual battles against the wicked ones in high places .
Mrs . Gladys used to be among the call girls that dots the ever busy red light zone of Azikiwe Street in Port Harcourt . Last year Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere came to the area purposely to convert most of the girls . Gladys was among the 38 girls that converted that very day . She later got married to her old time lover . During the marriage she and her husband were given accommodation that befitted their new marital status . They were also empowered economically by the General Overseer to get married . The news is that it is not only Mrs . Okon that has gotten married since then .
” The challenge has not been easy ’’ she said. ‘’ the stigma of being a former prostitute is there but with the support of the G O we have surmounted that stigma and most of us have never regretted getting converted to Christ ’’ . She really does not need to regret because she has settled to the kind of life that she desire . Gladys like most girls is a victim of human trafficking which the GO is doing so much to fight . His efforts are yielding fruit because people are getting out of the illicit things they have been doing to embrace Christ due to the way and manner he has been encouraging people to do so.
Just as he is doing in the fight against prostitution and human trafficking Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere has been helping rid the society of militants and cultists that terrorized the state . In July this year he baptized over 300 repentant cultists and gave them leverage to earn better living . Today that number is rising . The ministry provides them accommodation , shelter , skill acquisition and setting up of business and this has helped keep the society descent .

Prophet Jeremiah Omoto
(Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry (CMDM))

The servant of God is widely known to engage him self in some philanthropist work through his church . He regularly donates money and food items to orphans, widows and the less fortunate people in his church and neighbouring communities and that is what a true man of God should always do.

Having lost her husband five years back, the woman had been catering for herself and her six children without help from anywhere. She neither had a job nor any means of taking care of them, to an extent that she would be contemplating suicide.
