150 of them gathered for a summit in commemoration of the International Youth day and set out to make an impact in the lives of others. On Friday, August 12, during the International Youth Day Summit, the lives of youths and teenagers were transformed through God’s Word. The indispensability of the Word of God in achieving success in life was communicated to the youths through talk shows and super sessions.
44 teenagers were motivated after Pastor Lanre Adewole charged the congregants to make most of their youth in Zealous service of the Lord. As a result of this, they committed to the Lordship of Jesus. One of the teens expressed that he had never heard such powerful words and revelations.
