The Elevation Church (TEC), a non-denominational Christian ministry, says transforming lives of people has been the church’s greatest testimony since its establishment.

Godman Akinlabi, lead pastor of the ministry, spoke on Thursday at a briefing to commemorate the church’s 10th anniversary holding on Saturday.

Akinlabi said the church, which started in 2010, has “evolved into an impact making institution, transforming lives in unprecedented manner with its life-applicable teachings.”

“Our greatest testimony at The Elevation Church is not about the number of churches planted, or the number of pastors empowered beyond this ministry, or the various humanitarian works touching lives of people we don’t even know, our greatest testimony is that of truly transformed lives,” he said.

Also speaking, Samson Isah, a pastor at the church, attributed the ministry’s impact to its ability to teach God’s word in simple terms.

He also linked such impact to the “multiplicity of capacity building initiatives geared at providing individuals at all levels with valuable information to be effective in their endeavours.”

These, he said, include ‘Men of Honour’, ‘Made for More’, ‘Vantage Forum’, ‘Exponential Conference’ among others.

The anniversary tagged ‘Celebrating 10 Years of God’s Faithfulness’ will commence with a special praise session between 7am to 5pm.

The session will feature performances from several gospel singers including BJ Sax, Sola Allyson, DJ Horphuray and Debo Worship

Sam Adeyemi, a senior pastor of the Daystar Christian, Mensa Otabil and Taiwo Odukoya will also be ministering at the event.

The church said “other programmes laid out for the celebration of the anniversary include ‘Made for More’, the women’s annual conference on Saturday 24 & Sunday 25 October, with the theme ‘Yearning for More’ which will attract speakers like Nike Adeyemi, Debola Deji-Kurunmi, and Bola Akinlabi.”

It added that “the men’s ministry will also host the annual ‘Men of Honor’ conference in November, while a symposium for the 10th anniversary will be held in January 2021.”
