A new era has dawned in the annals of God’s Kingdom Society (GKS) following the inauguration by the elders of the church last weekend of a seven-member executive board to administer the affairs of the 77-year old organisation.
The board members were chosen during the Ministers’ Conference held in June this year.
Speaking at a special service to induct the new body into office, one of the senior ministers of the church, Brother Joel Olusola Solu-peju charged the newly elected members to be God-fearing and to serve with will-ingness and readiness of mind.
He said they should do nothing by partiality or fav-ouritism but according to the Holy Bible and to be examp-les to the flock. He prayed God to give them His wis-dom to discharge their duties creditably.
The executive board consists of a chairman, Brother God-win Ifeacho, a vice chair-man, Brother Felix Adedo-kun, a secretary, Brother Tariola Ekiseowei and a treasurer, Brother Femi Akin-wale. Others include Bro-thers S. M. O. Ayavoro, Abra-ham Erha and Preye Chu-kwudi.
Various addresses pledging loyalty to the new body and charging them to be dedi-cated to God and His work as enjoined in the Scriptures were read by the ministers, the GKS Laity, Warri branch, the Youth Fellowship and the Women Fellowship.
In his response, the chairman said he accepted the responsi-bility “with humility and in awe” and thanked the Almighty, the Lord’s Ministry and the Laity for the honour bestowed on them.
He ple-dged that they would dischar-ge their duties in the fear of God by serving Him diligent-ly and sincerely and solicited the prayers and support of one and all for them to make a success of their assignment.
It will be recalled that the third president of the church, Brother Emmanuel Aighal-ua was removed after the Church’s Council of Minist-ers, found him guilty of grave allegations, including dicta-torial tendencies.
