Addressing a mammoth crowd of worshipers at the on-going 66th annual convention of the church on Wednesday night, the great evangelist, the apostle of humility regarded as one of the 50 Most Influential Individuals in the Universe, said people have been approaching him with proposal to head the umbrella body of Christians in the country.
“Whether you believe it or not people have approached me, they want me to be president of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, but I have said No! No!! No!!! That is not what I am after. When I accepted Jesus Christ, there was only one demand I made from God and that is that I do not want to be a mediocre. I don’t want to be an ordinary Christian. I want to excel,” he noted.
For the avoidance of doubt, he emphasized that his dream was not to become a General Overseer, or any such title, adding: “I wanted to excel as a Christian because it’s a tradition that I have built from childhood. When I was in primary school, each time I come out second in examination, I cried and cried because I was asking myself, the fellow who came out first is a human being like me. How long must I remain an ordinary Christian?”
