The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has ordained over 24,000 ministers to swell the numbers in the fast-growing ministry at its ongoing 69th convention.
The ceremony was presided over by the General Overseer of the ministry, Pastor Enoch Adekare Adeboye. The event produced a total of 10,806 deacons and deaconesses as well as 4,726 Assistant Pastors made up of male and female ministers.
The newly commissioned ministers have been charged to help the pastorate in its quest to move the Church forward to greater heights of glory.
A statement from the office of Assistant General Overseer in charge of Administration and Personnel, Pastor Johnson Odesola confirmed that the deacons, deaconesses as well as the Assistant Pastors were ordained as part of the workforce of the fast growing Church.
Another 2,231 Pastors will be added to fast growing workforce on Saturday as the convention winds to a close after six days of a busy schedule for the leadership of the Church. It was flagged off by the 79-year General Overseer leading a prayer walk from the Old auditorium to the church’s 3 kilometres by 3 kilometers auditorium, a distance of over three kilometers with so many falling by the wayside.
