The Civil Chaplains Forum of Nigeria, a body of Chaplains affiliated to the Association of Professional Chaplains of the United States of America has unveiled the new officers who would be controlling the affairs of the young organisation. The new officers were made known at the recently concluded first annual conference of the forum which took place at its national headquarters situated at the premises of The River of Life Mission International, off Itele Road, Aiyetoro, Ogun state.
The officers that came out for introduction were the National Grand Commander and the Global President in person of Chaplain General Bishop Michael Sola Adewuyi. He is assisted by Rev. Dr. Jacob Olanipekun Adesanmi who is the National Assistant Grand Commander, and Rev. Dr. Mrs. Adewuyi as Deputy Grand Commander.
The National Grand Commander, Chaplain General Bishop Adewuyi, from his United States base, in his welcome address read by the National Assistant Grand Commander, Rev. Dr. Jacob Adesanmi acknowledged that history was being made at the formal first National Conference, as new members of Trustees, Senior Officers and delegates would be introduced at the conference.
He added of the conference that “The major outcomes that we expect from the conference is a National and International frame work for the changing disunity systems in Chaplaincy around the nations and we will also be talking about the global roles/codes of conducts lacking in many Chaplain Officers and the best practices in chaplaincy field around the community and the world.
The Grand Commander also showed his appreciation to all CCFN officers that “tirelessly planned the conference, all our invited special guests present and friends who are always there for us.
“We are proud to announce that this forum and conference is being conducted with the cooperation of many Chaplain organisations and government agencies who have consistently been ranked number one for their primary and secondary roles in Chaplaincy in our nation’s development.
The Chaplain Grand Commander took the advantage to encourage ministers of God and believers of the gospel of Jesus Christ across all Churches, royal fathers, philanthropists and retired but not tired military officers to participate with increasing number in all activities of Civil Chaplains Forum of Nigeria at all levels.
Chaplain Adewuyi also called on the government at all levels to reduce the spate of insecurity all over Nigeria, as he advised that government could make use of non military organisations like the Chaplain to meet both physical and spiritual needs of Nigerians which could further help to reduce insecurity, kidnapping for ransome and robbery in the country.
“When religious leaders are allowed to have access to the people there would be the need to preach to them most especially Christians would preach Christ and peace to them, know and meet their basic needs and as such there would be repentance and restitution and members of the community at all levels would be able to live together in peace and tranquility,” he advocated.
The guest speaker, also a commissioned Chaplain Officer, Rev. Dr. Isaiah Abiye Jatto JP, of Renovation Christian Centre from Ogun State acknowledged Chaplains as “Those who sacrifice themselves for humanity in the community where they live for the common good of the people beyond the four walls of the Church where they worship, to reach out to those outside like the less privileged, those in prisons, widows, orphans and to others that are yet to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and saviour.”
He challenged Chaplain officers and members to continue to shine the light of Christ and raise the hope of the hopeless especially in this end time, “where there is sorrow all over place.”
He also told the gathering what it takes to become a member of Civil Chaplains Forum noting acceptance of Christ, membership registration and training and then onward service to the members of their community.
