Like a mantle of God (wrapped in His authority), London-based Christian leader, philanthropist and author, Rev. Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi, was used to touch many lives during the Healing Stream Sunday service recently held at the Cherubim & Seraphim Bible Ministries, also known as the HolyGhost Faith Centre, Ijeshatedo, Lagos.
The programme featured powerful song ministrations, The word/Sermon and healing prayer sessions and the people were richly blessed with the manifest presence of the Holy Spirit.
The General Overseer of CSBM, Pastor Gideon Oyedepo, set the tone for the atmosphere of miracles and while Rev. Mother Ajayi took the congregation through healing prayer sessions prophesying, and anointing them in their numbers.
Speaking on the sidelines of the programme, Rev. Mother Ajayi prayed that the Moses Orimolade University, which was proposed in 2012 to immortalise the late Founder of the Cherubim and Seraphim (C&S) Church, Moses Orimolade Tunolase, should begin academic activities by 2020.
She said the takeoff of academic activities at the university was paramount to her, adding that it was imperative for all and sundry, particularly members of the church, to put ideas together to ensure that the university took off.
According to her, it is important for members of the C&S Church to contribute their quota to the development of the university. This, she said, include building roads and other facilities that would open avenues for outsiders to also make their contributions towards the takeoff of the university.
Rev. Mother Ajayi, who expressed optimism that the university would commence academic activities by 2020, noted that though she believed God Almighty would touch the hearts of the people like Aliko Dangote, Tony Elumelu, Oprah Winfrey, and others to contribute to the actualisation of the university.
“The church needs to be strategic because that is what is obtainable in other denominations. It’s not magical,” she quipped.
In spite of identifying funding as a major challenge facing the varsity project, she made a promise to go all out to mobilise funds for the progress of the church as if her life depended on it because the C&S Church must be repositioned to face its challenges in other to make progress.
Iya Adura noted that the church, henceforth, would wear a new face as she stood as a brand for it.
“Because of this (my brand), some of the Pentecostal churches are beginning to treat me differently,” she revealed.
She explained that the need to reposition and rebrand white garment wearing churches led to the organisation of the first and second editions of her annual revival programme tagged: Celebrating the Comforter, which she said received acceptance in the United Kingdom (2017), where she is based and the United States, where the last edition held in 2018.
The programme, she noted, was to create global awareness about the white garment wearing churches.
According to her, the third edition of the ‘Celebrate the Comforter’ will take place in Lagos, Nigeria, on July 20, 2019 by God’s grace.
Rev Mother Ajayi, who is also the Founder of the Love of Christ (LOC) Generation Church, London, indicated her interest in Youth development and urged young Nigerians to embrace agriculture to tackle the growing unemployment and make the nation more productive.
Rev Mother Ajayi is an accomplished Christian leader, philanthropist and author with a passion for the power of prayer and giving as foundational pillars in her life.
She has dedicated much of her life to supporting grassroots initiatives through which she has touched thousands of lives and received over 20 awards in the past few years.
Having developed her Christian faith within the Cherubim & Seraphim Church, she has made significant contributions to the work of the church physically, financially and spiritually across many denominations and continents.
In 2007, she was led by God to start her own church named: Love of Christ Generation Church C&S in London. In 2015, the church moved into a newly renovated Cathedral in Clapham, London, where she now pastors a congregation with hundreds of worshippers and thousands of social media followers.
