Embracing technology by adopting cutting-edge mobile applications ,the deployment of various mobile technologies and has made a headway in technological revolution by introducing a first of its kind social media application from Africa by Africans, Rev Chris Oyakhilome has proven to the world that what matters is not the fact that we have lived but the difference we have made in the lives of others and this will determine the significance of the life we lead.
One of the ways his ministry is making sure they stay abreast of recent developments in technology is by organising media conferences where staff are trained in workshops and practical training sessions.
Recently a Zonal Media Connectors’ Conference for delegates was held in Benin for rapid digital expansion. The Media Connectors’ Conference, hosted by Christ Embassy Benin Zone 3, pulled an exuberant audience of 700 delegates in spite of the torrential downpour.
Featured at the timely conference were strategic workshops, super sessions, highly interactive practical sessions and a most beneficial question and answer forum. In addition, the throwback talk session engaged outstanding media connectors, who vibrantly discussed the impact of their work, following the IMCC they attended in the past ministry year.
One of the insightful workshops trained the brethren on the RON Digital Revolution. Pastor Oge Oketunji emphasised each one’s role in embracing the call to digital activism, clearly outlining strategies for taking particular advantage of the ReachOut Campaign this year in order to spread into every man’s device and ultimately form disciples of our ministry and message.
The Zonal Secretary of BLW Zone J, Pastor Henry Akasili, in an enlightening expose tagged ‘the Church, New Media and Impact Everywhere‘, charged the congregants to become the catalysts for the change in this era of digital evangelism, using our new media platforms as the vehicles to reach the ends of the earth. “The world has become our parish; we are no longer local champions. We are now global players!” he said.
In her plenary session titled ‘the Message, the Mandate and the Medium‘, the esteemed Zonal Pastor, Pastor Mary Owase challenged the delegates, each committing to an active and increased participation towards specific goals, especially through the ‘Every Cell A Group on KingsChat‘ initiative.
In an effort to encourage the media personnel present, Special Recognition Awards were presented to those who had distinguished themselves in the use of and spread of Christ Embassy ministry apps and in the execution of digital campaign outreaches in the outgoing year.
