Assistant General Overseer RCCG

The Assistant General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said no matter the challenges facing the church, it will not relent in its efforts to reach out to the people and spread the gospel.

Speaking at a service on Sunday, Pastor Adeboye said that despite the fact that some Christians were not ready to accept God’s call on them, they would be left behind when Christ returns.

He said: “There are many who are not ready to receive anything from God but we will not relent because we know that if you don’t go, you will be left behind. We know this.”

“We have been sent here by God to fulfil His purpose and we will never relent in whatever He wants us to do.”

The cleric also urged Christians to pray for leaders in their various ministries so that they may be able to perform their duties effectively.
