Saturday August 19 and Sunday 20, 2023, the Christos International
Worship Centre, situated at No 1 David Ogudu Avenue, off Kabusa
Express Way, After Apo Primary School, Abuja (directly opposite a mega
hospital still under construction) will host a second mega-event of
this year.

This time, a major conference will be organized there to
enable participants live more physically, economically and spiritually
fulfilling lives. Those whose lives have lost every meaning will be
helped to find a reason to believe in both God and themselves again,
and those who have lost their economic mooring and are adrift in a sea
of hardship and are in debt will learn how to re-energize their lives.

Those already doing well will be helped to achieve even more because
there is no limit to human achievement. Most of all, people will be
helped to learn to discover their talents and tap into them to find
not only sustenance but to grow wings and fly. Free transportation
has been organised to bring in participants from various parts of

Apostle Amos Deya

Yes, they will be told how to navigate through the stumbling blocks of
life and with the help of God, become successful socially and
economically. Even those already devastated by a life of hard drugs
will be helped to kick that habit and return to leading productive
lives again.

The very idea behind the conference, which is open to both members of the church and the general public, is to help people
cope, and even flourish, in these harsh times.

The empowerment conference themed “Higher and Better” will help
participants to become better in their endeavours despite the economic
hardships prevalent in the country. Participants will learn new ways
of weathering the economic storms, of avoiding stress in these
stressful times, in finding contentment and fulfillment while doing
things in profitable and new ways.

They will be taught how
Christianity could help them maximize their potentials to become
elevated in their careers and businesses.

Dr. (Bishop) David Nwachukwu Ogudu, the General Overseer of Christos,
explained that the conference “is a journey to excellent life,
excellent living, destiny maximization (which will make people) to
achieve much more than they had ever thought possible, and become role models to their generations”.

The main speakers include Queen Prophetess Naomi Silenkunola Ogunwusi
from Nigeria, a women’s right and empowerment advocate and an avowed
antagonist against gender-based vices. She is the Founder of Women in
Need of Guidance and Support (WINGS). Apostle Amos Deya from England,
is another speaker, just like Pastor Mike Barrett from Australia, a
renowned preacher of over two decades who partners with governments
and organizations in ministering to the hurting, traumatized and
substance abuse victims.

Queen Prophetess Naomi Silenkunola Ogunwusi: She hardly needs any
introduction as she is not just famous but is the kind of celebrity
that has over 50, 000 followers on the social media. She is comely –
as in pleasurably conforming to notions of good appearance,
suitability, or proportion. Glorious, lively pretty, gorgeous,
ravishing, and even well-favoured are the kinds of words commonly used
by journalists to describe her … yet she has her feet steadfastly on
this terra firma (firm earth) instead of in the clouds.

Most of all,
and this is the outstanding part, this decidedly gorgeous lady is a
“Woman of God”.

She started having a good relationship with God at a very tender age,
such that by age 30, she has run her ministry for 12 years. So, she
started on that “for God and His Glory alone” route by age 18, which
is quite remarkable.

She once said in an interview that before she got to know the Lord,
she had some supernatural experiences. “However, at the age of nine, I
gave my life to Christ and got baptised with the Holy Ghost with
evidence of speaking in tongues. I went through primary and secondary
schools at the Akure Academy before I got admitted to Adekunle Ajasin
University. I became popular there. I was going to 18 years when I got
God’s call to start my ministry formally, and I went into evangelistic

She also runs an NGO, “Women in Need of Guidance and Support” which
caters to the spiritual, emotional and financial needs of women. “I
have been instrumental in a lot of people’s successes. You will see
50-year-old people calling me their mother. They are not calling me
mummy because of the impact, I made in their lives. It is quite a
lot,” she said.

In truth, she has many times engaged in empowering those in need,
especially the widows and the down and out, and she has done this all
across the country without minding where such needy people come from.
She deals out such impartations very often.

Apostle Amos Deya from England: He is a man for this generation
touching lives in areas of generational curses and ancestral
disorders. He is a pastor in the City of London and, this is most
relevant here, he is an international Conference Speaker. He ministers
and teaches the word with signs and wonders following in all his
meetings. He is widely travelled in pursuing the Gospel of Christ.

Pastor Mike Barrett, from Australia: He is a renowned preacher for
over two decades and he is Founder of the Transformations Program that
has turned thousands of lives around, rescuing them from Abuse,
Homelessness, Addictions and Mental Illness. And this has a direct
bearing on this Christos’ event; he is also a well-known International
Speaker and Evangelist and the Founder of Salt Recovery House.

He specializes in ministering to the hurting, traumatized and
substance abuse-people. He partners with governments and organizations
to help such victims regain their freedom. He empowers men and women
through his preaching of the Cross to become their best in life. He
believes that no matter how battered and shattered your life may be,
God is still the God of second chance.

His Facebook account states “Evangelist Mike Barrett has a powerful
testimony. A former Drug Enforcer and Drug dealer, Mike now moves in
the power of God. After starting one of Australia’s most successful
Drug Rehab Ministries in the late nineties Mike has spoken globally in
over 20 nations, speaking to tens of thousands of people at a time. He
travels where others simply won’t dare. From the slums of the
Philippines, to the Mexican border towns operated by the cartel, to
war torn Africa whilst inspiring and encouraging the wider body of
Christ to win the lost at any cost”.

The Host/Convener and speaker also, Dr. (Bishop) Nwachukwu Ogudu, is
the founder and Presiding Bishop of Christos International Worship
Centre, an author of over 35 books and who produced audio bible in
some 18 Nigerian languages that is still being downloaded from the
internet for free. He is also President of Wisdom Training Centre, a
Leadership Institute founded in 2004. He is a Prophet commissioned
into self-discovery and destiny-fulfilment through the word of
prophecy, healing and deliverance. Now he is going beyond that to help
people discover how to maximize their three T’s; talent, time and
treasure instead of abusing or neglecting them. He said that many
people have failed in life because they neglected their talents or
were too afraid or too timid to dare to succeed.

He is a Prophet of God who got the divine commission in 2005 to start
an out-reach mission to the less-privileged, and today he has an NGO
that caters to the poor, and awards scholarships to indigent students.

This free and open seminar, to help enrich the lives of the people, is
just one way of Ogudu’s saying that Christians should pray as hard as if their economic and social success depends on God and at the same time work as hard as if it all depends on each person because laziness is evil because the lazy person has refused to make use of his God-given talents and energy.
