Speaking at the Sunday Celebration Service, the Senior Pastor of House On The Rock, Paul Adefarasin said “The way you handle the stewardship of money is a representation of your values. When you have your values rooted in Christ, you will use your money the right way”.
Dr Bill Winston speaking on restoring the years said “It’s going to take absolute faith in God to do what He has called you for. Do not impede your success by shrinking God to something small. He’s a lot bigger and more capable than what you constrain Him to within your mind.”
Bishop Mike Okonkwo speaking on the Grace to Fulfil Destiny said “Enjoy your Christianity and live in liberty because He loves you unconditionally and His thoughts towards you are only of good; to bring you to an expected end”.
Dr Mensa Otabil speaking on the rules to adopt in the Corridors of Power said “Transformation is about engaging the world’s systems to change it; not participating in its sin. We have to engage the world”.
Speaking on the need for our generation to do the right thing, Bishop Tudor Bismark said “Wealth is for stewardship and God wants you to be wealthy. God is ready to move you to your purpose and that purpose is a wealthy place”.
Funke Felix Adejumo speaking on ‘Destiny Here I Come’ said “Throughout your life journey, you will need people. Life is about relationships. It is therefore important that you learn how to manage your relationships correctly.”
