GOD BUILT US COVENANT UNIVERSITY BUT HE FIRST INSPIRED ME TO STUDY 9 WORLD CLASS UNIVERSITIES

IT WAS FROM THERE THAT I DECLARED: COVENANT UNIVERSITY SHALL BE A NEW GENERATION HARVARD UNIVERSITY

MANY WON’T CARE TO FIND OUT ANYTHING. SO HOW DO YOU WANT TO EXPERIENCE A CHANGE?

DAVID YONGGI CHO IS GONE TO HEAVEN, HE TAUGHT ME ABOUT HOME CELLS. IT LED TO AN EXPLOSION IN OUR HOME CELLS.

WE ALSO LEARNT ABOUT GROWING HOME CELLS FROM CELL LEADERS AND LAST YEAR WE ESTABLISHED 21,000 NEW HOME CELLS.

PEOPLE ARE NOT WILLING TO LEARN, THE FUTURE IS FOR THE HUMBLE.

– Bishop David Oyedepo at Church Growth Conference, 2022. Opening Session, Day One.

By the grace of God, he’s built us this university, he inspired me to know which way to go.

So, I sat down and studied 9 selected world class universities, how they began, what was in their mind, how they developed, how the program was formed. I was out of that study and I declared Covenant University shall be a new generation Harvard University, whatever you’re looking for go for it.

I mean go for it, you see Churches growing around you, find out what they are doing.

We had a Church next door to us, when we first came to Lagos and the pastor came to us and said please, show me the principle of Church Growth and we taught him. Only a fence divides the two of us, we were growing, they were growing, we moved to a new site, they also moved to a new site.

People won’t find out, they won’t find out anything, they won’t read anything. So, how do you want to experience a change? David Yonggi Cho is gone to Heaven, he taught me to pieces.

I was his avowed student, I met someone who has seen it and I want to see what he has seen. So, I went after him in 1985, we still went after him in 2010, when I bought 100 copies of building successful home cells, I gave to our pastors to study, we need to do something about these home cells.

I said find out three things, what are we doing that we should not be doing? What are we doing that we are not doing well enough? What are we not doing that we should be doing? So, come up with it. Everybody go and read.

We sat down and there was a big explosion before our eyes, between 2010 and 2013, we just erupted. Now we did something this last time, it’s very humbling. I said now we seem to have exhausted all that we know from the materials we have gathered, the inspiration we have received.

Now, let’s now find out from our members who are very active in self growth and replication, to find out what they did. So, we checked the record and found out all those who have multiplied 10 times in a year, some 5 times, tell us what you did.

So, we sampled about 100 of them and some are about the same. So, we sat with them and they came into a seminar with all the state ministers. We saw 21,000 cells planted last year in this place. People are not willing to learn, the future is for the humble. So, the people we taught, they are the ones who taught us, by applying properly the things we taught them as it applies to their areas where they live. We saw 21,000 home cells replicated last year. So, open up.

Running with the Vision requires that you’ll keep acquiring more and more information on how to make the most of it, it works. Spiritual work, physical work, mental work is work. May each one of us receive the grace to walk God’s plan out in our lives.

May we receive that grace to work his plan out in our lives, lift up your right hand everyone and give God thanks. Give Jesus thanks.

Prayers

* Say with me: I serve a covenant keeping Father, my stand in the Word is what determines his response to me at all times. So, help me Jesus to maintain a positive stand in your Word at all times concerning all things in the name of Jesus, lift up your two hands and pray.
