Monday, the 7th of March 2014 marked the commencement of the International School of Ministry Ministers’ Network Conference (ISMMNC) with Pastor Chris in Johannesburg, South Africa. The ISMMNC is a conference held to network various ministers of the gospel from across the globe and communicate to them the gospel according to the Believers’ LoveWorld Nation.
Judging by the excitement and passion in their expectations reports, the hearts of the delegates are truly united in one thing—a burning desire to take this gospel to the ends of the earth. The 3-Day event began with an exciting roll call of the 90 nations represented; the announcement of each country was followed by shouts of excitement from such a nation’s delegates
Following two inspiring opening addresses by the Director of Church Ministry Organization, Rev. Tom Amenkhienan, and the chairman of the ISMMN, Pastor Andrew Motunduro, the man of God—Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD—mounted the stage amidst a resounding ovation from all corners of the auditorium.
Pastor Chris started with a short exhortation that encouraged all ministers present, reminding them of the Helper within, the HolyGhost. The man of God progressed to announce the theme of his teaching, 3 Cardinal Gifts. Without much suspense, Pastor Chris listed the 3 cardinal gifts given to us by God through the Gospel: ETERNAL LIFE (Romans 6:23); RIGHTEOUSNESS (Romans 5:17) and the HOLYSPIRIT (Acts 2:38).
Pastor Chris emphasized the reality and currency of eternal life for every believer, reminding delegates that eternal life is not something we hope for. He also spent time reiterating the impossibility of ministry without the HolyGhost. So strong was his conviction that he insisted that Pastors who had not received the Holy Spirit be filled with the HolySpirit immediately, calling on Rev. Tom, Rev. Ken and Evang. Eddy Owase to carry out this special ministration.
The man of God ended the first day’s teaching with a charge for every Pastor to pay attention to waiting upon the Lord and hearing His voice in prayer. Pastor Chris went on to acknowledge and minister specially to delegates from Romania. He concluded the night with an introduction to a message on Kingdom finances which has set a tone of expectation in the hearts of all delegates for what God will do over the next 2 days of the conference.
