Nigeria: Church Times Holds Fifth Anniversary

Church Times Nigeria will hold its fifth anniversary alongside a seminar and give award to deserving Christians in Nigeria tomorrow in Lagos.

Mr Gbenga Osinaike, publisher of the church's journal said the anniversary is to give thanks to God for making the church survive for five years.

Osinaike said, "We basically want to thank God. We are not where we should be but we are certainly not where we were at the beginning.

"So we want to thank God and appreciate Him for keeping us through the troubled waters of publishing in the last five years.

"We also want to use the opportunity to celebrate some Christians in Nigeria who have been of immense value to the Body of Christ."

The theme of the anniversary according to him is: Church in Times Like this. The guest speaker for the occasion is Prof. Duro Adegboye a missionary evangelist and a former dean of the Faculty of Science, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. Osinaike said Nigeria's former ambassador to the United Kingdom, Dr. Christopher Kolade will be given the Church Times Christian Service Award.

Others to be given awards are: Dr. Gary Maxey, founder of West Africa Theological Seminary; Dr. Akin Bola John, Founder, Church Growth International Ministries; Mr. Femi Adesina, Deputy Managing Director, the Sun Newspapers; Mrs Felicia Martins, founder, Society for the Safety of the Insane and the Destitute; and Grace So Amazing Foundation, publishers of Word for Today.
