CPM Holds Conference, Tasks Women On Positive Change
The Christian Pentecostal Mission (CPM) Women of Vision International Conference (WOVIC 2015), which started on September 6 at the church headquarter, Lateef Salami, Ajao Estate, Lagos, would be rounded off today.
With, Go! Make A Difference, as the theme, the National and International Coordinator, Rev. Mercy Ezekiel, in her address, disclosed that the theme became necessary because women have been sitting on the fence for a very long time and that the church is using the conference to call them to get up and make a difference wherever they are.
She said: Jesus told Mary Magdalene, shortly after His resurrection to, go and tell His people that he has risen. It is the same charge that we are giving to all the women in this country and beyond. Women should get up and go tell the world about the risen Christ and what He can do for all of us as women, men, community and nation.
Speaking on past editions, she noted that the conference is a platform through which women present their needs to God and receive answers. As a result, women have been coming to the conference with different prayer points and there have been testimonies.
The weeklong event, which drew delegates from all the church branches within and outside the country, is biennial and features seminars, entrepreneurship classes, debates and speeches.
Apart from Rev Ezekiel, other invited women ministers include Archbishop Margaret Idahosa of the Church of God Mission, Rev. Abiola Omobude, Rev. Faith Ukaegbu and Rev. Christy Doh Tetteh from Ghana.
Urging women to live a holy lifestyle, the General Overseer of CPM, Rev. Dr. O Ezekiel, said: ìTo make a difference in words, action and character is the real difference we are concerned about. If we only talk and our actions portray a different thing, then I may call that hypocrisy.
