The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye urged his church members to provide solutions to unemployment and food insecurity in the country.
Addressing the Church workers, House Fellowship leaders and Ministers of the Church at the ongoing church 71st annual convention tagged: Beyond Expectation ‘, Pastor Adeboye made it known to his church workers that they could also provide solutions to hunger in Nigeria by actively participating in agriculture.
According to him, “I told your senior pastors about two years ago that in all our regions, we should have farms where we could begin to produce food.
“God saw at that time that famine was coming. We all know what food is saying now. The youths will have a place to work, and your people will have food to eat and even bring to the convention.
“I know some of my people have given me all manners of excuses; we cannot go to the farm because of herdsmen. However, I have told you that only failure makes excuses. Go home and as many of our parishes as possible start your farm.
“Call on the angels of heaven, anybody that comes to destroy your farm will die on the spot because our God is the owner of heaven and earth and one of His names is Lord of Host”.
