Members of the Ghana branch of the Believers’ Loveworld Incorporated also known as Christ Embassy, will mark the birthday of the founder of the church, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, with a community service.
Members of the church have set aside a week to undertake a number of social interventions aimed at rendering services to society.
The annual event is a direction by the founder, Pastor Dr. Chris Oyakhilome for the church members across the world to engage in massive charity programmes including donations to support community members as a sign of sharing projecting the true Christ in them.
Based on this, the Ghana branch of Christ Embassy will from 1st to 9th December 2018 embark on a massive community service across all ten regions.
The service to be rendered will include donation to hospitals, schools, orphanages, prisons and the aged, clean up exercises, free car wash, meal donations to street children, filing of pot-holes on roads and many others.
Speaking at a news conference in Accra, an official of Christ Embassy in Ghana, Deacon Kwabena Situ, said the Loveworld day of service forms a part of their “transforming lives” initiative aimed at exhibiting the love of God to mankind.
He indicated that, Pastor Chris stands out as a true altruistic actor among the many men and women that have had a meaningful impact on millions in Africa and across the world.
“For over three decades Pastor Chris has been an outstanding man of God, spreading the word of the Lord and His blessings across different nations and people in the globe. He managed to spread and influence millions through spreading the gospel; changing lives, spreading hope, and uplifting the spirits of so many in this world. No matter the setting or the audience, people respond to his gospel gloriously. He is truly a man worth celebrating” he added.
Mr. Situ stressed that, they are not only for preaching the gospel but also giving back to society.
