Jos crisis: Church presents N4.2m to victims

By Taye Obateru

Jos — The Living Faith Church yesterday presented cheques totalling N4.2 million to 10 churches affected by the recent crisis in Plateau State to enable them repair their destroyed places of worship.

Making the presentation, Senior Pastor of the church in Jos, Mr. Steve Agbo, said although the amount given might not be enough to foot their repair bills, it was the church’s way of sharing in their burden at this trying period.

He said the amount presented to the churches was in line with identified levels of need and urged them to see it as a token of love from the leadership of Living Faith Church.

“We are showing our solidarity to our brother churches that you are not alone. This little goodwill, therefore, is an act of love and a way of telling you that we are part of the pains you are going through,” he said.

State Chairman of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, Rev. Sam Alaha, commended the church for the gesture and called on other churches to emulate Living Faith Church by coming to the aid of churches affected by the crisis.

Represented by Pastor Sunday James, he said such assistance would go a long way in easing the pain of the affected churches. Each of the churches got between N300,000 and N600,000.

The churches include God’s Kingdom Church, Church of God Mission, Assemblies of God Church, Saviours Assembly, Fulfilled Life Christian Assembly, COCIN Church and four ECWA Churches.
