We want to prepare saints for Christ’s coming at this retreat — Kumuyi

We want to prepare saints for Christ’s coming at this retreat — Kumuyi


The Deeper Christian Life Ministry, DLCC has announced its national December retreat with the theme, ‘Readiness for Christ’s Return.’

The General Superintendent, Pastor William F. Kumuyi, said the focus this time around would be on preparing saints for Christ’s return, adding that it will also afford participants the opportunity of experiencing divine intervention in their lives.

Pastor Kumuyi stated  that although the current socio-economic challenges in the country may have so much agitated the minds of many citizens, he nevertheless urged Nigerians to lessen their apprehension and fear about the coming year, urging them to place their absolute trust in God.

The cleric’s assurances were contained in a statement signed on his behalf by Pastor Jerry Asemota, the Church Secretary, which formally announced the national  December retreat.

“At this time, we must emphasise, once again, the need for people to think beyond their existence here; we want them to know that there is a place far better than this present world. Whatever anyone may be enjoying here cannot be compared to what God has prepared for those who love Him in Heaven. Whether we eat or drink, we must, always, be conscious of the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ,” he said.

The retreat, which starts from December 24 will end on Sunday, December 27.

The programme will hold at the DLCC, Km 42, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, and in all the states of the federation.

It will be streamed live via satellite from DLCC to other centres in Nigeria, Africa, Europe, America and other continents of the world where the church has its branches.
