Rev. Sam Adeyemi, senior pastor at Daystar Christian Centre, says the value of any church is measured by its impact on the society where it exists. Adeyemi said this over the weekend when the church gave out school materials to various pupils and students across the state in preparation for the new academic session.
He said, ‘We as a church believe and practice the teaching of Christ on being responsible on the society where we live, we noticed the gap and a unit in our church started it over seven years ago and it has since become an annual event for us. This year, we decentralized around six various locations like Idimu, Agege, Ikorodu, Lekki, Badagry and Oregun in Lagos so that many people can benefit’.
He further said that 20,000 children will be benefiting this year and he is getting reports that the parents are very happy. ‘What is the value of a church if it cannot contribute to the society?’ He asked.
Rev. Adeyemi also encouraged the leaders to pay more attention to the younger lives because they are our tomorrow as a nation.
