Youths of Love of Christ Generation Church held their annual Youth TakeOver programme, tagged: “Breaking Limits,” with the Oyo State Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Dr. Seun Fakorede, commending them for their zeal in God’s service at their young age.
The Commissioner for Youth and Sports was the guest speaker at the thanksgiving service, which rounded off the event.
Fakorede said: “God is raising a new set of generals.
“They are politicians who will double as prophets in their youth as they will break limits.
“This resolution has little or nothing to do with religious identification or faith.
“It is about enthroning men and women of substance, value and righteousness.”
Addressing the youths, the Founder of Love of Christ Generation Church, Rev. Esther Abimbola Ajayi, expressed gratitude for their unwavering support towards her mission.
Ajayi said: “I like to work with the youths because they give me energy and of course they are our leaders of tomorrow.
“My advice to you is to keep your heads high and believe in God, then you can indeed break every limitation.”
The celebration, which was held August 25 to 27, 2023 allowed youths to take charge of the service and other activities.
It started with a praise night attended by other churches, including the CCC International Apex Choir, aka Ebenezer Crooners; Eti Osa Central Choir; C&S Ore Ofe Choir; Glory of God Limit Breakers Choir; Ori Oke Aduramigba Choir; and Jesukoh Cathedral choir.
