Pastor Ade Ajala of Kingdom Connections in Denver, Colorado says he sees unlimited potential for Montserrat’s future. He made the statement several times during the 15th Annual God’s Mandate Conference hosted by Bishop Melroy Meade and the Church of God of Prophecy from May 11 to 15th.
This is the second time that Pastor Ajala has been a guest speaker at the conference and his third visit. He shared that he first visited the island in 1993 as a sailor and it was an emotional thing to come back and see how the island is now. However, he told the church leadership on Saturday morning that he sees many new business opportunities which can be created on island and he believes the church can be a part of this.
Ajala’s workshop was one of three held on Saturday at the Montserrat Cultural Centre to equip believers for expanded development in the kingdom of God. The pastor shared wisdom on how to build a high-impact church. He encouraged the leadership to be focused on raising men and women of God and not money. He also said the purpose of the church must be clear in order to see measurable results.
Also speaking at the workshop was former Attorney General for Montserrat and now High Court Judge Esco Henry. During her session for women only, she shared how current challenges that many are facing should not be seen as a personal failure but as preparation for divine opportunities which God is about to release.
The five-day conference ended with two services at the cultural centre on Sunday. Ministers and members from other churches joined the high energy services. Bishop Gary George from Jesus Elam in Trinidad spoke on Sunday morning. He told the gathering that in order to be ready for a new move of God, Christians must change the way they speak. Speak what the word says, Bishop George encouraged, rather than speak out of fear and doubt.
The need to shift mindsets from one of expectation of failure to trust and action was a recurring theme throughout the week.
