15th All Christian Men’s Convention ends in Nnewi



15TH Annual All Christian Men’s Convention, organised by Anglican Men Fellowship in the Dioceses of Nnewi, held at St Mary’s Cathedral, Uruagu Nnewi, has ended.

The convention which started last Friday, ended last Sunday with thanksgiving service.

In his presidential address, Sir Felix Okechukwu, Nnewi Diocesan President of  Anglican Men’s Fellowship(AMF), traced the genesis of AMF which sprouted 15 years ago and had touched the ecumenical and record blazing of the  early church founders in the diocese.

Sir Okechukwu said that All Saints Day of 2019 marked at St Mary’s Cathedral, witnessed book launch, and other activities.

He noted  with regret that if the spirits of these early church men were possible to hover, that the present church men or Christians would be punished for diverting from the Christly foundation they laid faithfully.

He said that the church which Jesus Christ founded remains as it was but the members kept wavering.

He said that the theme of the convention ,Steadfastness in God’s Service’ culled from the message of St Paul’s to the Corinthians  was carefully selected to deal with the experience the world encounters in all aspects of life , faith and trust.

Uchendu, the guest preacher hammered on the need for  Christians, especially fathers to see themselves as pillars of their respective homes.. He even frowned that church attendance of men has diminished embarrassingly and beckoned on men to wake up ..

The AMF chaplain, Rev Cannon Dr. G.C Mortanya, described the three-day convention as fruitful and educative .

The convention chairman, Rev Cannot A.A Ifejirika said that such annual gathering of Anglican Men’s Fellowship has remained an avenue for them to take stock of their activities in the year and prepare for another year.

A merit award of  Royal Beacon of Light went to Obi Afam Obi, Obi Uruagu-Nnewi, with while Chris Orji of Praise High Motors bagged  award of Beacon of Light, alongside Ken Okonkwo and Stephen Okoye.

Chris Orji  said that such awards will spur him to greater involvement in church activities as such remains an avenue to appreciate God’s care and love for the believers.
