UKPOR Born Again Christian Association (UBACA), an umbrella body for all born again Christians in Ukpor, recently held a reconciliation meeting at Uboma village  in Ukpor,  Nnewi South LG.A.

  The event, which was presided over by the Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), South East and the General Overseer, Peculiar Cathedral World Wide, Abia State, Bishop Goddy Okafor had in attendance over 50 clergy men.

While addressing the audience, the bishop stressed the importance of peace among the brethren, urging them to enthrone the peace of God in their hearts, families, ministries, workplaces, as well as other areas of life.

 He explained that peaceful co-existence brings progress and revival. He prayed that God should take over in their entire endeavour. “As Pastors dwell together in practical knowledge that Jesus is the reason for being together in peace,

men make progress as they enthrone peace in their hearts, families, relationships, ministries, work places and other areas of life. Let no man be deceived or be manipulated to believe otherwise; with peace, the results will be obvious.”

  The bishop, who further explained that unity among pastors would be the restraining force that will quench the forces of darkness in their community, stressed that lack of unity has given the backslidding and compromised Christians the chance to reactivate shrines and evil forests that were destroyed in the 70s.

  He urged them not to continue in segregation, backbiting, divisions and stagnation of the Church but rather engage in soul winning, caring for one another and stop dragging their issues to the police and courts as doing this is satanic.

  Bishop Okafor also encouraged them to relate well with one another and pray for each other as every minister of God is a carrier of blessings with divine mandate.

Contributing, Apostle Mcfelix Ndefor, who spoke on the essence of reconciliation as revealed by God, noted that Ukpor brethren deserved to make peace.

  Baring their minds on the way forward for UBACA and expressing their grievances, Brother Jude Jah, Elder Ignatius U. Chukwukere, Pastor Michael Igwegbe, Pastor Mike Nnabuife, Pastor Uzochukwu Okoli, Pastor Joseph Okanume, Rev. Adaobi Chukwujekwu, Evangelist Elizabeth Unigwe  and  many others expressed their gratitude to God for such gathering and pledged their commitment in the unity of UBACA.

   High point of the meeting was thanksgiving, worship and praises as well as declarations for year 2020 by Bishop Goddy Okafor.
