Redeemed Christian Church of God General Overseer Pastor Enoch Adeboye has advised Christians to reach out more to prisoners with the love, care and compassion of Jesus.

Adeboye spoke at the ongoing 64th Annual Convention of Redeemed Christian Church of God holding at the Old Arena of the Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The programme witnessed the ordaining of 8,000 clerics among them are 1,800 assistant pastors.

He advocated the need “to look out for prisons around, visit them, evangelise, pray and provide for their physical, emotional, material, mental and social well-being”.

He noted the church’s activities and programmes in Kirikiri Prison, Lagos, which, he said, has yielded successes.

The cleric said: “We can do more because we never can tell what will become of them in
future.

“We rebuilt some parts of Kirikiri, establish an open air university campus, bought lots of mattress and send food to them every Sunday. We want to do more and show them that we care,” he said.

Adeboye stressed that the church must take evangelism seriously since it is the heartbeat of God and because the church must win souls.

He added: “Evangelism is the duty for everyone and soul-winning is every one’s obligation. It is the activity of seeking and saving of lost souls. It is the work of reconciling men from the life of sin and wickedness to a life of obedience to the gospel message.”

The founding Pastor of Living Water Church, Pastor Joe Olaiya, admonished the ministers to crave to know Jesus Christ more, adding that the secret of victory and fruitfulness in ministry and life is hidden in knowing Jesus.

Rev. Olaiya explained that the more a man knows Christ, the better his life will be. He advised the congregation to pray for divine revelation of Christ in their lives.
He said: “The more you know Christ, the better your life. You cannot believe a man more than the way you love him. The more you know Christ, the more you love Him and the more effective He is in your life.”

The cleric prayed for the new ministers that the name of Jesus would bring forth signs and wonders, miracles and salvation of souls to God’s kingdom as they embarked on their ministerial assignment.
