UPSURGE Conference! Reverend Biodun Fatoyinbo hosted Professor Yemi Osinbajo & Bishop TD Jakes



Reverend Biodun Fatoyinbo, the senior Pastor of The Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), hosted his excellency; The Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo and Bishop TD Jakes, the senior pastor of The Potters House, Dallas, Texas at the just concluded conference tagged UPSURGE which held on the 19th and 20th of May, 2018.

COZA, known for her best in class hospitality and excellence played hosts to thousands of people in Abuja, as the spotlight was on the phenomenally constructed COZA Auditorium, which was the venue for the conference. The event was well attended by a number of dignitaries, led by His Excellency, The Vice President of the Federal Republic who had a lot of encouraging words to say to the Nigerian youths in the church.

Bishop Jakes preached for two sessions and he taught expressly on how we must change our perception and we must move from the level of hand outs to hand ups. His dynamic and engaging approach to sharing the gospel endeared a lot of cheers and left people in high emotions. There were tears of joy, intense prayers and declarations reverberating through the halls.

The hall was filled up, as well as the three overflows, which were at the location. This is not far from what was experienced at the Lagos, Port Harcourt, Ilorin and Dubai viewing centres, where the sessions were streamed to thousands of people.

The Upsurge was a complete success as there were instant testimonies from the event and it was a historic moment as not only was it the first time Bishop TD Jakes would preach  in Abuja, it was also his first time in COZA.

Reverend Biodun, popularly called PB in his remarks, mentioned that his undying desire and passion to see young people in Nigeria do more exploits and become global high flyers is the brain behind his constant investment in mind renovating and empowerment programs. He is also committed to seeing Christians live up to their full potential as designed by God and he will go to any length to ensuring this becomes a reality, which is why he does not stop at one off experiences, but he will do this over and over again as well as create platforms for expression and realization for as many that want to take the words they hear and put them to action.

Also talking about the crowd, ‘Bishop Jakes attracted a lot of people to COZA and it was really difficult to get a space in the auditorium if you were not there 2/3 hours before the service started. However, adequate overflow facilities were provided with high end multimedia support to give the same experience.

Indeed it was beyond a program, the Upsurge was a game changer.

      I don’t understand this awesome comment,
      Awesome that a man who lackes humility and thrives on flamboyance and vulgarity, who lacks moral compass, lest we forget we are still waiting for the robust reply you promised us for ESE accusation.

      VP a pastor who pitches tent with an administration that slaughter and persecutes Christian , a toothless bulldog that has no moral compass or knows where to draw the line between his faith and stomach infrastructure. A man who is shamelessly loyal to lies . Resignation would have vilified you and made you a hero but now you are an accomplice in this blood shed.

      TDJ the propagation of the prosperity preaching started by all of you in America. You shamelessly exported it to Africa and we gullibly swallowed. off cause like everything else imported we perfect it and run with it excelling beyond the founders .
      Has your funds dried up in America or has the gullible finally woken up. . I guess as long as there is poverty you will have an audience.

    @Amaa such hateful comments without any base. You obviously know nothing about Biodun Fatoyinbo. He’s one of the most humble people ever. I’m sure you’re on of those screaming and shouting “he without sin should cast the first stone” yet castigate a man who has gone past any scandal. You select the sins you want to and give others a free pass. Keep on hating while he soars higher.

    @Truth teller, Calvary greetings to you, i don’t know Amaa personally, but i bear witness with him/her totally on points 1 & 2
    We are still waiting for a ROBUST RESPONSE from Rev. Fatoyinbo. .
    I don’t agree Osinbajo is meant to be a “christianity defender” so to speak. But i wonder what his advice has been to Buhari the past 2 years, and i am appalled at his defense of this administration of which he is part and parcel of.
    Bishop TD Jakes, I dont know what to say, so let me be not speak what i don’t know. Last time i read anything from or about him was like 10 years ago.
    Have a good evening.
