78 year old Pastor Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has just taken delivery of a brand new helicopter, registered with initials, ‘5N-EAA’ representing ‘Enoch Adejare Adeboye’
Church Gists reports that the brand new helicopter ‘5N-EAA’ is presently parked in the Winners’ Chapel owned hangar ‘Dominion Aviation Center’ at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria.
Pastor Adeboye had famously stated to Al Jazeera’s Mohammed Adow in an interview monitored by Church Gist on 13th April 2013…”There are things you need…when you have to oversee churches in 160 nations, you can’t do that on a bicycle”. Today, the RCCG has churches in over 190 countries of the world.
News recalls that Pastor Enoch Adeboye had stated in 1981 as a 39 year old leader of the RCCG that the Church intended to plant Churches within 3 minutes driving distance in the developed world and 5 minutes walking distance in the developing world.
This has led the Church to grow from 38 Churches when he stepped into office to over 40,000 Churches in the last 39 years and as old age finally arrives, the easy and sensible way to spearhead the continuing expansion is to the make use of an easy mode of transport to access the hinterlands, thus the purchase of the helicopter.
Members of the RCCG are presently jubilating over the new purchase.
One Monday Martins wrote “Our God is good,more blessings sir,in good health an more anointing ahead of u sir”
Another member wrote on Instagram “Hallelujah praise the name of the Lord Almighty to God alone be the glory.”
One Aileme wrote “Glory to God. The church is marching on and the gates of hell cannot prevail against it.”
One Chukwuoma Kewulezi “That’s how to do God’s business, we serve the owner of the universe! All the private jets, helicopters and shuttles are His to deploy and use as He sees fit.”
One Ayobami Obawura “No one can stop the gospel. The new generation should brace up and do much more than our fathers. Thank you to our fathers in the Lord for the greater work they allow Holy Spirit to use them to achieve. Grace on us to achieve more.”
