Church of the Day: House On The Rock Cathedral Christian Church


House on the Rock is a prominent multi-ethnic Christian Church headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria. The ministry was founded by Paul Adefarasin in 1994 and is perhaps most known for its annual musical concert, The Experience (Gospel Concert), which features local and international gospel musicians.

When Adefarasin returned to Nigeria in 1994, he decided to start a Christian church (now House On The Rock) from his mother’s living room in Lagos. The ministry has now grown to over 50 branches worldwide, mostly in Nigeria, with daughter churches in South Africa, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.

The Rock Cathedral (also known as the Millennium Temple) is located in Lekki, Lagos and houses the global headquarters of House On The Rock and The Rock Foundation. Construction of the facility started in 2003, and it now accommodates installations for religious and social programmes, including worship, education, healthcare, community development, reformation training, recreation and social rehabilitation. Paul Adefarasin has been quoted saying that the idea behind the cathedral is to provide a “one-stop centre for Christians looking for materials and goods of every kind.”

The official commissioning of The Rock Cathedral took place on April 20, 2013, with prominent personalities in attendance, including Goodluck Jonathan and Tony Blair.


The Rock Foundation is a non-profit charity organisation that provides health care, education, social reformation, and relief materials to the needy. The foundation operates primarily in Nigeria and the West Africa region. Paul Adefarasin serves as Founder and President of the foundation.

Project Spread is an end-of-year empowerment programme by the Rock Foundation that sees the distribution of food, medicine and other supplies to residents in needy communities.

In December 2017, Paul Adefarasin led a team of about 20,000 participants to the Lagos Island, Ikate-Elegushi, Ebute-Meta and Bariga communities in Lagos to launch the year’s initiative. Adefarasin mentioned during the Lagos Island phase of the Project Spread that he decided to begin the initiative from Lagos Island because he was born within the community.

The Experience is an annual free musical concert held in Lagos with gospel musicians from Nigeria and around the world attending. The event started in 2006 and is hosted by Paul Adefarasin every year at the Tafawa Balewa Square on Lagos Island.

Gospel musicians such as Kirk Franklin, CeCe Winans, Donnie McClurkin, Don Moen, Frank Edwards (gospel musician), Nathaniel Bassey, and Chioma Jesus have previously headlined the concert.

Church of the Day: Deeper Christian Life Ministry


Deeper Christian Life Ministry is a Christian Ministry with its international headquarters, Deeper Life Bible Church Lagos in Lagos. It is overseen by the General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi.

In 1973, while serving as a Mathematics Lecturer at the University of Lagos, W.F. Kumuyi started a Bible study group with 15 university students who had come to him requesting training in the Scriptures. The church started as the Deeper Christian Life Ministry. William Folorunso Kumuyi, was a former Anglican who joined the Apostolic Faith Church after being baptized.

In 1975, he was expelled from the church for preaching without credentials. He continued his independent ministry, which in 1982 became the Deeper Life Bible Church. By the early 1980s that small group had grown to several thousand, at which time Deeper Life Bible Church was formally established. The church has spread throughout sub-Saharan Africa and then to the United Kingdom, from where branches were developed in western Europe, Russia, India, and North America.


In April, 2018, The Deeper Christian Life Ministry had its new headquarters church at Gbagada commissioned with the Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo among the Dignitaries.

Church of the Day: Redeemed Christian Church of God

 

The RCCG was founded in 1952 by Rev. Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi (1909–1980) following his involvement in other churches. Rev. Akindayomi chose Enoch Adeboye as the next General overseer. Enoch Adeboye was a lecturer in mathematics at the University of Lagos, Nigeria, as at the time he joined the church in 1973. Adeboye initially became one of the interpreters translating Akindayomi's sermons from Yoruba to English. He was ordained a pastor of the church in 1975, and his appointment as leader (General overseer) of the church was formalized by the posthumous reading of Akindayomi's sealed pronouncement. In 1990, Redeemed Christian Church of God Bible School is founded.

Andrew Rice, writing in The New York Times, calls the RCCG "one of [Africa's] most vigorously expansionary religious movements, a homegrown Pentecostal denomination that is crusading to become a global faith". The church's leaders preach that in the future "In every household there will be at least one member of Redeemed Christian Church of God in the whole world."

In 2016, the weekly worship attendance of the church in Lagos averaged 50,000.

The official RCCG website outlines its beliefs in the Bible and the Holy Trinity, that the Devil exists, that God formed man in his image, in repentance, in cleansing from sins by God's grace, in sanctification, water baptism, Holy Spirit baptism, restitution and that it is possible for God to heal without medicine (by His divine intervention e.g. through prayer). The church is a strong advocate of peace and holiness ("Follow peace with all [men], and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14 - KJV). The church forbids "worldliness" (such as reveling and lewd dancing) and rebellion against church authority. The church is also against debt to finance either the church or its activities. It encourages abstention from all evil and reverence to parents and constituted authorities.

The international headquarters of the church is located at Kilometre 46, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Mowe, Ogun State, Nigeria. As of March 2017, RCCG had a presence in 196 nations of the world, and the church continues to expand, utilizing evangelism as a core tool along with church planting.

The international church is structured in different areas throughout the world. The local churches are now grouped into regions, with 25 Regions in Nigeria. It is also organized throughout most of the world.

A major RCCG evangelistic outreach event is the "Let's go fishing" program, which holds primarily during the major Christian festive seasons of Christmas and Easter. An RCCG church is usually started at the location for the benefit of the new converts and the larger community.


Live broadcasts are transmitted on TV, Radio & also streamed over the internet. The program is regularly attended by RCCG and non RCCG members, as well as people from other faiths. The immediate past venue of the monthly Holy Ghost Services was the 1 km2 main auditorium, located at the popular Redemption Camp on the outskirts of Lagos in Ogun State, Nigeria. Starting in November 2016, the venue of the monthly Holy Ghost services is now at the new 3 km X 3 km auditorium(in an area popularly referred to as New Arena), which is still located on the expansive grounds of the Redemption Camp. Starting with the November 2016 Holy Ghost Service (as well as subsequent services), the 1 km2 auditorium is being used as a primary viewing center.

Among other reasons, the ever-growing crowd of worshipers that attend services at the Redemption Camp, especially during the church's Annual Convention that holds in August and the Holy Ghost Congress in December, warranted the construction of and relocation(of the services) to the much larger auditorium, which upon completion will measure 3 kilometres by 3 kilometres in size(area: 9 km2).

Holy Ghost services are also held at different times in other locations around the world including the U.K.(where it's known as the Festival of Life), the U.S., in Asia, and on other continents.

The RCCG runs bible colleges and school of disciples headquartered in Nigeria, with many campuses in the UK, Europe, Middle East (Qatar) and a few other continents. The church also runs monthly programs like Divine Encounter and Shiloh Hour. It also holds weekends which are primarily meant for departments of the church to celebrate and pray for themselves.

Pastor Tunde Bakare Biography


Born into a Muslim family, Bakare was raised by his mother, Madam Abigail Eebudola. He attended All Saints Primary School, Kemta, Abeokuta and subsequently Lisabi Grammar School, Abeokuta. He thereafter studied law at the University of Lagos between 1977 and 1980. Bakare became born again on September 24th, 1974 after a unique encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Following his NYSC, Bakare was called to Bar in 1981 and practiced law with Gani Fawehinmi Chambers, Rotimi Williams & Co, and Burke & Co, Solicitors. He established his own law firm Tunde Bakare & Co (El-Shaddai Chambers) in October 1984. In May 1988, at the peak of his legal career, he was called into ministry and he pioneered the 1st Model parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. Subsequently, he founded The Latter Rain Assembly (End-Time Church) on April 1st, 1989 and is currently the Serving Overseer of the church.

Bakare presides over Global Apostolic Impact Network (GAIN) – a network of churches, ministries and kingdom businesses committed to advancing the Kingdom of God on earth. Dr. Bakare is also the President of Latter Rain Ministries, Inc. (Church Development Center) in Atlanta, GA, USA, a ministry committed to restoring today’s church to the scriptural pattern. As part of his endeavour to give back to humanity, he established The Family Heritage Foundation that gives scholarship to less privileged students from all walks of life within and outside the country.

In 2007, he established the International Centre for Reconstruction and Development (ICRD); a knowledge industry/think-tank devoted to re-engineering the social, economic and political landscape of Nigeria in particular and Africa in general. He is the Convener of the Save Nigeria Group (SNG), a coalition of pro-democracy groups and individuals with a clear mandate to promote political knowledge and participation of the Nigerian citizens through strategic activities. After decades of speaking truth to power and standing on the side of the oppressed, Dr. Bakare has extended the frontiers of his political involvement in a bid to Save Nigeria, to Change Nigeria and to Make Nigeria Great again.

Bakare is a strong critic of the Nigerian Government and its leadership. He, however, got involved in politics in 2011 under the Congress for Progressive Change Party, (CPC) and was the running mate of General Muhammadu Buhari in the 2011 Presidential Elections, which they, unfortunately, lost to the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP). He, however, remains one of Nigerians’ popular pastors because of his televangelism and media presence.

Pastor Bakare got married to Mrs. Olayide Bakare in 1984 and their union is blessed with five children; two females and three males. His wife has been a pillar of strength to him in his ministry, life and career.

In recognition of his years of exploits and global impact in ministry, Pastor Bakare was honoured with a Doctor of Ministry degree by the Indiana Christian University at the instance of his spiritual father and mentor, Dr. Lester Sumrall in 1996.

Pastor Enoch Adeboye Biography


In the forefront of missionary activity out of Africa, Enoch Adeboye has achieved, through various global Christian ministries and social organs, a great following for Christ Jesus. He sees the local church as one of the focal points of Christian discipleship, and thus plans to have an RCCG branch 5 minutes from every home in the world.

In furtherance of this goal, he oversees a network of over 40,000 parish-churches in 186 nations of the world. In the United States, there are over 600 several RCCG branches, the largest concentrations being in the states of Maryland, Texas, Illinois, California, and Washington D.C.

Formerly a mathematics professor at the University of Lagos, Nigeria, he started working with the founder of RCCG by translating his sermons from Yoruba to the English language. The leadership mantle fell on Pastor Enoch Adeboye in 1981, and since then, RCCG has experienced phenomenal growth and success, converting multitudes to Christ.

In recognition of his contribution as a global icon and preacher of God’s Word, he was selected in 2008 as one of the world’s 50 most influential people by Newsweek magazine, USA.
Born on March 2, 1942 into a humble family in the village of Ifewara, Osun State, located in the South-Western part of Nigeria. His poor family background seemed at first glance capable of confining him to a life of lack.

Brilliant, calm and reticent, his early teachers had little doubt that the lad had a scholarly aura and was cut for academia. The bruising truth was that Enoch’s tall ambition to pursue a career in academia was irreconcilable with the abject poverty of his family. Not to be deterred, his parents sold a few cherished possessions and borrowed from kind neighbors just to ensure that their son’s dream was not held back.

In 1956, he was admitted into one of Nigeria’s foremost Secondary Schools, Ilesha Grammar School, Osun State. As a youth he discovered a passion for books, and an aptitude for science, and in particular, mathematics. This led him to pursue higher education in the same field.

He obtained a Bachelors degree in Mathematics from the University of Ife, Nigeria in 1967, a Masters degree in Hydrodynamics from the University of Lagos, Nigeria in 1969, and a Doctorate Degree in Applied Mathematics from the same university in 1975. He had planned to become the youngest University President in Africa.

It did seem that this ambition would be realized as his academic career flourished. However, little did he know that a greater career awaited him in the service of the LORD. In 1967, he got married to his beloved wife, Foluke Adenike Adeboye (nee Adeyokunnu).

In an experience that could be described as his wake up call, his daughter became ill in 1973, and proved unresponsive to several bouts of orthodox medicine. A cousin had invited him and his wife to a parish of RCCG to seek divine healing for their daughter. What the mathematics professor and his adorable wife could not have imagined, as they stepped out of their house that day was that they had begun to walk into God’s ultimate plan for their lives.

On July 29, 1973, Enoch Adeboye made a personal commitment to Christ through the ministry of Reverend Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi, the founder and first general overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God. Reverend Akindayomi was uneducated but was supernaturally endowed with the ability to read the Holy Bible in his native language.

Ordained a Pastor in RCCG in 1977, Pastor Adeboye received a solid foundation in the scriptures, and unbeknownst to him, being groomed for the future assignment under the tutelage of Reverend Akindayomi. He manifested an incredible passion for the work of the Lord by pioneering Bible study meetings, crusades, revivals, outreaches and the evangelistic programs known as the Congress. These were very successfully conducted in various cities all over South-West Nigeria.

In 1981, when the founder passed to glory, the baton of leadership was handed over to him by divine orchestration. His appointment as General Overseer immediately terminated his academic career, and as a result, he set his heart on taking RCCG to the next level of ministry, where all strata of society could be involved in the ministry without compromising the true worship of God.

This led to the establishment of the “Model Parishes” through which countless millions in the upper echelons of the society have come to know the Lord. The poor, needy and downtrodden have not been ignored, as Enoch Adeboye has a deep compassion for souls.

Soon after this came the Holy Ghost Services (HGS) in the mid-1980s. The HGS featured a night of praise, worship, prayer, soul-winning, deliverance, testimonies and the preaching of God’s Word once a month. Initially held on the premises of the ministry’s headquarters in Lagos, space constraints required a change in location. This led to the purchase of a massive piece of uninhabited forest land located in the suburbs of Ogun State, South West Nigeria. This piece of land is now known as The Redemption Camp. The HGS has been consistently held for over twenty years now and today, the crowd in attendance run in the millions every month.

Enoch Adeboye was launched into international prominence on December 18, 1998, when he hosted the very first Holy Ghost Congress (open air meeting) in Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria with an attendance of over 7 million people as reported by CNN and the BBC. It constitutes the largest mobilization of people in one spot on the surface of the earth, a feat never before recorded.

The following year, attendance at the Holy Ghost Congress (HGC) grew to 12 million worshippers. This program has since been replaced with the annual 3-Day HGC held every December at the Redemption Camp. Much like other programs in RCCG, the HGC has witnessed its transformations also. From a one night event in 1998 to a weeklong program today. At each and every one of these events, many souls are won for Christ, and the power of God moves freely to heal, anoint, and empower.

His trademark of humility is disarming and endearing, enabling him to easily share his testimony of the Gospel. His passion for soul-winning feeds his passion for church-planting, and through this, countless people have been inspired to follow him and serve the Lord in the ministry.

His appearance is straitlaced: he always wears a pinstriped suit, a gleaming white shirt and a bow tie. Enoch Adeboye and his ministry are known around the globe. He has preached in remote African villages and in the heart of major cities in United States and Europe. Since 1981, when he became the General Overseer of RCCG, he has been accorded the opportunity to conduct preaching missions in virtually every continents of the world.

He conducts his ministry through the RCCG, including:

The monthly Holy Ghost Service (HGS) [open air meeting] in Nigeria with an average attendance of over 1 million people.

The annual March 3-Day Special Holy Ghost Service (SHGS) [open air meeting] in Nigeria with an average attendance of over 6 million people.

The annual December weeklong Holy Ghost Congress (HGC) [open air meeting] in Nigeria with an average attendance of over 12 million people.

The quarterly Festival of Life [indoor revival meeting] in London, UK and various cities in the US with an average attendance of over 50,000 people in the (UK) and 10,000 in the (US) respectively.

The annual RCCG Conventions in Nigeria, UK, Asia and the US with an average attendance of over 7 million (Nigeria), 50,000 (UK) and 10,000 (US) The annual RCCG Leadership and Discipleship Conferences and Retreats all over the world.

Television programs are broadcast on a digital-cable channel called Open Heavens TV, Liveway TV and Satellite radio.

Enoch Adeboye has written over 60 books. His daily devotional manual (Open Heavens), with over 1 million published annually, available in English, French and other major languages of the world is globally-distributed and widely-read.

His life substantiates the scriptures in Zechariah 4: 10 (NLT) which states: Do not despise these small beginnings… His life and over 30 years of full-time ministry around the world is remarkable in every sense. From humble beginnings as the son of a peasant farmer in Nigeria to one of the most influential people in the world.

Enoch Adeboye’s counsel has been sought by presidents, and his appeal in both the secular and religious arenas is evidenced by the wide range of groups that have honored him, including numerous honorary doctorates from many institutions in the Nigeria and abroad in appreciation of his contributions to humanity.

Recognitions include the following:
  • 1999 – Received honorary citizenship and key of Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
  • 2000 – Dedicated the first chapel in the Nigerian Presidential Villa, Abuja, Nigeria.
  • 2002 – Received the key to the city of Detroit, Michigan.

Though the above achievements are phenomenal, Enoch Adeboye never fails to give glory to God, claiming that there are greater things ahead that the Lord will yet do.

Enoch Adeboye has been married to Foluke Adenike Adeboye for over 45 years. Together they have three sons and one daughter, and many grand and great-grandchildren children. They reside at the Redemption Camp in the suburbs of Lagos, Nigeria.

Who Is Pastor Steven Furtick Jr.


Steven Furtick Jr. is a pastor, songwriter, and New York Times best-selling author. As founder and lead pastor, he has helped grow the multi-site Elevation Church into a global ministry through online streaming, television, and the music of Elevation Worship.


He was born on 19 February 1980 at Moncks Corner, South Carolina, United States, married to Holly Furtick, he attended Berkeley High School, North Greenville University.

He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and is the author of Crash the Chatterbox, Greater, Sun Stand Still, (Un)Qualified, and Seven-Mile Miracle. Pastor Furtick and his wife Holly live in Charlotte, North Carolina, with their three children, sons, Elijah and Graham, and daughter, Abbey.

At the age of 16, after reading the book Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire by Jim Cymbala, he felt called to pastor a church in a major city. Furtick received a Bachelor of Arts in communications from North Greenville University and a Master of Divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Chabonary. He served as music director at Christ Covenant Church in Shelby, North Carolina, Furtick moved to Charlotte and started Elevation Church. The church had their first service on February 5, 2006.

Furtick speaks at events all over the world including the 2011 Global Leadership Summit hosted by Bill Hybels, C3 Conference 2012, hosted by Ed Young Jr. Hillsong Conference 2012 hosted by Brian Houston, and the Presence Conference in 2012 and 2013 hosted by Phil Pringle. Furtick also participated in The Elephant Room 1 and The Elephant Room 2 hosted by James MacDonald. Furtick was named to Oprah's SuperSoul100 list of visionaries and influential leaders in 2016. Whenever Furtick is on Speaking platform he takes the art of speaking to explain all the messages he's passing across.



OUTREACH ORGANIZED BY ELEVATION
In 2007, Furtick made headlines when his church gave $40,000 to members in envelopes with $5, $20, even $1,000, and told them to spend it kindly on others.

Under Furtick's leadership, Elevation Church has given more than $100 million to local and global outreach partners since 2006. In 2011, a partnership with Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx was established to give 100,000 hours and $750,000 to serve the people of Charlotte.

Since 2010, Furtick has hosted a week-long outreach in February at Elevation Church called Love Week. During the church's 2010 Love Week, thousands of Elevation members packed more than 10,000 sandwiches for the homeless, helped single mothers get their cars serviced, donated blood, cleaned up parks and streets, built a soccer field for local ministries and renovated buildings.[14] In 2011, Furtick led Elevation and over 25 other local churches to serve more than 34,000 hours in a single week.

 In 2012, Elevation partnered with 31 local churches to serve 62 outreach organizations for a total of 50,340 hours around the city of Charlotte. More than 4,800 volunteers from Furtick's church and other local churches served at more than 400 events, building houses, stocking food pantries, feeding the hungry and homeless, and holding a senior prom for elderly nursing home residents. Furtick and Elevation Church also partnered with Presbyterian Hospital-Matthews to pledge $80,000 to help fund enhancements and expansion at a local free clinic.

In 2012, in response to a need of 1,000 mentors for students in area schools, Furtick launched an outreach program at Elevation Church called the M1 Initiative. Furtick said, "We have always said we want to be a blessing to our city and support our leaders with a volunteer force they can count on." More t1,600 members responded and committed to mentoring a child for the 20122013 school year. The LGBT community raised concerns about the initiative and the well-being of LGBT students in the program because Furtick had publicly called homosexuality a sin.

Holly Furtick has featured in some very inspiring messages which include; The Hope Cycle, Support System, When Your All Seems Small.

She also runs a study group for ladies called Building Friendships that Fit.
