Prelate tasks men on evangelism, commitment to family, church



ANGLICAN Bishop, Diocese on the Niger, Rt. Rev Dr. Owen Nwokolo has urged  Christian men to be more serious with evangelism and to support the church projects as well raise God fearing children as a panacea to curb ills in the society.

  The bishop gave the charge during the Men’s Conference hosted by Men Christian Fellowship(MCF), Diocese on the Niger, Anglican Communion at St Philip Church, Ogidi.

In his homily based on the Synod theme “Walk in the Spirit” the bishop encouraged men to be evangelistic in their outlook and programmes.

“Men should be up and doing in carrying the gospel from here to the farthest part of the world including where the Diocese on the Niger has missions like in Bokinafaso, Togo among other p-laces.

“Men’s fellowship should take a cue from the Women’s fellowship learning from their passion for the work of God and the organised way they contribute in the ongoing developmental projects in the diocese,” said Nwokolo.

According to the MCF Diocesan President, Emeka Anyaenetu ” the essence of the conference is for men to stand firm. We need to walk in the Spirit and develop ourselves spiritually to take charge of our homes and build homes devoid of deviants, cultists, drug addicts.

“Although, women look after the children, most men lag behind spiritually. Our spirit needs revival just as Paul said that what defiles a man comes from within,” said Anyaenetu.

Moreover, the Diocesan MCF Chaplain and Archdeacon Onitsha archdeaconry, Venerable Obi Ubaka said that men should allow the HolySpirit to inspire them to live a spirit led life, be responsible fathers who help in shaping their society.

“The family is the nucleus of every society. Corruption and various societal ills are perpetrated from people who came from families. So Christian men should sit up and start curbing this societal menace beginning with their family members”, said Obi Ubaka.

Meanwhile, the trio of MCF Secretary, Comrade Ozioma Ekezie, Chief Angus Umeh and Chigozie Ezeanochie in their separate speeches described the conference as very enriching both spiritually and health wise, saying that they benefitted immensely from Dr. Carl Nwudo-Odenigbo’s health seminar.

“Dr. Nwudo-Odenigbo taught on the need to eat more fruits, vegetables and Vitamin C other than processed and sugary foods. He taught us to avoid sleeping on the left side, use orthopedic foam or its equivalent to minimize curving our frame and avoid back pain and so on,” they stated.
