The founder of Jehovah Jireh Ministries International, Rev. Major N. Parker, and its Superintendent and co-founder, Pastor McKinley Moore, are visiting the country from their church’s Minnesota, USA, headquarters to take part in a series of activities under the auspices of Christ Healing Chapel Jehovah Jireh Ministries Inc., of New Matadi.
On Sunday February 23, at a kick-off to five days of activity which end on Thursday, the delegation conducted worship celebrations at the Christ Healing Chapel Jehovah Jireh Ministries International; and a visited the Ministries’ Douzon, Robert Field Highway branch.
Sunday’s activities climaxed at night with the organizational restructuring of the three churches uniting them into one; though they maintained their separate locations. The restructuring was concluded by administrative appointments.
The activities continued yesterday February 24, at 9:30 A.M. with a ceremony of vision casting, which according to the church, is the mark of discipleship for sharing the vision and faith giving.
Other activities include the consecration and dedication of all persons and things for God’s glory; a seminar under the theme: “God and Delegated Authority and The Top Five Indisputable Laws of Team Work”, and the installation of church officers and the ordinance of Holy Communion.
At the worship celebration at the Church’s edifice in New Matadi on Sunday, the Founder of Christ Healing Chapel, Pastor Major N. Parker, announced the official turnover of the Church to Pastor Moore as Overseer, while he remains as senior Pastor and church Administrator.
Pastor Parker disputed the concept people usually have when there is a merger of this kind. He asserted that Pastor Moore is a Pentecostal Church member and that the two share the same doctrine “and his dream has been to move the Church forward internationally and this is the time God has sent.”
Pastor Moore is scheduled to meet with member of the House of Representative, Munah Pennoh Youngblood, to acquaint her with his visit, since the church is recognized by the government.
While in the country, Pastor Moore will hold talks with the Assistant Minister for Secondary Education at the Ministry of Education, to assess the needs of the church’s school, as he plans to advance it to another level.
The American prelate gave assurances that his church would strive to provide business opportunities for its members. Opportunities he hopes would help impact the lives of community dwellers.
