Religious leaders in the country have been charged to be agents of change by showcasing acts capable of stimulating societal development in their episcopal responsibilities.
The Delta State Governor Senator Ifeanyi Okowa gave the charge at a Thanksgiving Service yesterday to mark the end of the 2022 Rehoboth Convention of the Honour World Christian Assembly, Asaba.
He said that spiritual growth of worshippers was necessary to advance the gospel of the kingdom of God hence, the need for religious leaders to radiate the virtues required of them.
He reminded religious leaders to speak more on holy living rather than prosperity, adding that sermons had the tendency to cause positive changes in the lives of the people and society.
The PDP vice presidential candidate congratulated the founder of the church, Bishop Maxwell Egbe, for the spiritual impact that the church had recorded over the years.
Okowa attributed the success of his administration in the last seven years to divine providence.
“We are in a very troubled nation and in our troubled nation, there is a lot of confusion and people are are getting worried.

“But, even in our troubled Nigeria today, in spite of the fact that we have challenges also in Delta State, one thing is clear that we appear to be more peaceful than most other states in the country.’
He, therefore, promised to partner churches in advancing the Stronger Delta Vision of his administration.
Earlier in his sermon, Lead Pastor of the Church, Bishop (Dr.) Maxwell Egbe, had harped on the importance of vision in life, adding that vision was necessary to stay relevant.
Egbe said that God was looking for substance to hold to manifest His glory on the people and urged Christians to make themselves available to be instruments of honour in God’s hand.
He commended Okowa for his accomplishments in the state and prayed for success in the forthcoming general election.
