The stretch of Billingsway Street, at Oregun in Ikeja, Lagos State, was shut down as about 7, 000 youths who are all members of the Cherubim & Seraphim Church on Saturday, September 22, 2018, converged on 10 Degrees Event Centre.
The youths, in the range of 16-40 years old, defied the heavy downpour of the day to participate in the maiden edition of a conference and capacity-building seminar for them.
Speaking at the event His Royal Majesty Oba Owolabi Adeniyi, the Alayeluwa of Igbobi Sabe charged the Seraph youths not to be daunted by the challenged of life but should remain focused and look unto God.
Also speaking on the purpose of assembling the youths, convener of Seraph Youths Arise initiative the Managing Director of International Alpha Limited, Gen. Supt. Apostolic Mother Oluseye Yomi-Sholoye said the programme was divinely-inspired. Her words, “The Commission that I was given, among others, was to focus on youths in the C&S church since they are the leaders of the church tomorrow. But there can be no proper starting point from rejuvenating the church without understanding where we are coming from as a church.
