CHURCH leaders and their congregants have been urged to cater for the less privileged members of society in and around the areas they worship in.
The words were said by local clergyman Bishop Rogers Jeffery, urging people to remember the vulnerable members of society during this festive season and beyond.
Bishop Jeff who leads Tabernacle of Worship Family Ministries International in Glen Norah spearheaded the George Shaya benefit concert and said plans are afoot to extent the concept beyond popular figures.
“It is the role of the church to help and cater for the less privileged in and around the areas they worship in and beyond. Let us remember them this festive season and beyond. Giving them goodies this festive season alone is not enough. We should always be there, helping them throughout,” he said.
He hailed several organisations that chipped in the philanthropic work and said more are welcome to partner.
The preacher is also known for his stance on health issues targeting issues such as HIV/AIDS and cancers has been involved in initiatives that help spread ‘right information’ to the people.
“2018 we are going further in what we started in 2017, helping the vulnerable members of society. We had partners who helped us and we are opening the window to all those that want to partner in this initiative,” he said.
This Sunday, Bishop Jeff and his ministry host an all-night prayer, getting into the new year under the theme ‘Season of Breakthrough’.
“This Sunday will be a day to remember for many. Lives will be transformed. Remember we preach the whole gospel for the whole man. Spiritual upliftment overflows to the physical being. I’m angry with the devil and it is time to restore what he has stolen from the people of God. Those in spiritual warfare, bareness, the sick, spiritual husbands and wives, this is the time for deliverance.
“This is not an ordinary all-night prayer but life changing session. 2017 we experienced a new dispensation and we are expanding it further, hence a day not to be missed. The venue is usual, next to ZAOGA in Glen Norah,” he said.
