Jerry Eze, the founder and president of Streams of Joy International, has recounted how his marriage almost crashed.


The cleric spoke in an interview with Chude Jideonwo, the media personality, to commemorate his 40th birthday.

Eze said during the period of his marital crisis — which he described as “our illumination period” — he and Eno Jerry, his wife, had issues coming to terms with his role as minister and a husband.

The pastor said his wife eventually realised his real personality “when she came full circle”.


“My wife and I had our own illumination season, so to speak. If you read her book ‘I Almost Ruined My Marriage’, she needed to see the pastor in me, not necessarily her husband during those turbulent times,” he said.

“I didn’t realise why God was causing me to be in that place of being molded by her actions. Being a true Christian by her.

“I mean, things were not going too well and I was still in that place where I was trying to be the great spouse…when she came full circle, she realised that you know what, beyond this supernatural and manifestation, this man is a true Christian. Like, this is what it is. And that it’s not acting.


“I’m sincerely in that place where all that I desire, with all the growing numbers, is that Jesus be pleased.”
