LAGOS – Prophet Israel Oladele Ogundipe, the popular televangelist, was the centre of attraction as Genesis Global opened a new worship centre at Ikeja area of Lagos on Thursday, June 16, 2022 to the admiration of its members and residents.
According to a release e-signed and made available to StarTrend Int’l & online – www.startrendinternational.com by Oluwaseun Fabiyi, Media Aide to Prophet Israel Oladele, it was fanfare when the man of God stormed the venue with members of Genesis Global for opening the new parish.
The evening service which started at exactly 6pm had a large turnout of attendees, numbering about 3000 who registered and put their names on the attendance list at the entrance of the hall.
It was gathered that the interior of the worship centre was a chilling environment to behold, equipped with sophisticated sound equipment mounted at strategic positions to enhance the event which was streamed live.
A digital screen was also mounted outside the hall premises for the passers-by to have a feel of the service. The digital screen projector outside the hall, it was learnt, caused a heavy gridlock as people passing by were eager to know what was going on in the neighbourhood.
In his welcome address, Prophet Ogundipe popularly known as Genesis told the mammoth worshipers to be fully prepared to dance away their sorrows as he was not ready to preach, but to render only thanksgiving of praise to God Almighty.
Another great man of God who mounted the podium on that night was Pastor David who gave a brief exhortation by referencing God, saying it was a good thing to always give thanks for what God has done and in anticipation of what He would do again.
Pastor ‘David’ also eulogised Prophet Israel Oladele Ogundipe for being a true man of God who remains God’s product of grace by spreading His gospel both in evangelism to win more souls to the vineyard.
As he opened the evening service for the congregants to dance as they moved into their next chapters of greatness, Genesis as he was fondly called prophesied into the lives of everyone who was in attendance, and prayed that their lives would no longer experience backwardness, hardship and financial stagnation.
Some popular gospel musicians who were on hand to electrify the atmosphere include Segun 02, Dare Justified, Rain and many more, and they churned out articulated and sonorous worship/praises songs as the service lasted a good five hours.
Prophet Israel Oladele, the great Man of God however officially declared every Sunday evening between 6pm and 7pm at Genesis Global Inter-Denominational Centre, Ikeja for praise worship to God.
