5 Nigerian Church Founders Who Confessed That Seed Sowing Changed Their Lives And Ministry
It is very important that we sow seeds as Christians if we want a change our life. Sowing seeds should be something that we do wholeheartedly and not reluctantly. Most great men of God in Nigeria presently have testified of how seed sowing has changed their lives and ministry and here are five of them:
1. Bishop David Oyedepo
Bishop Oyedepo once made it known that the secret to church growth is sowing seeds continuously. He said Pastors must understand this if they want their churches to keep growing. He said in the 80s when he started his ministry, he was having difficulties with church growth, so he asked God why his church was not growing because he hates anything that doesn’t grow. God told him that he needs to keep sowing seeds regularly and the seed is the word of God. He did that and everything changed.
2. Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo
Pastor Biodun took his 16-year-old son and they went to sow seed to Bishop David Oyedepo who was even very tired to attend to them. Despite the fact that they needed money at that period, he still sow the seed to him. It was on the 24th of December and 4 days later, he said that a man showed up at the gate of their church with almost the same bag that they used in sowing seed. They gave naira but he brought dollars and gave it to them. Not only did everything change for them, but his young son also learnt a lesson.
3. Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo
Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo’s wife once revealed how she and her husband ended poverty in their family by sowing seed. According to her, they started saving money. Anything you give them is for sale and they started selling everything that was given to them. They did all that so that they can gather money together to make one million. They then signed the cheque and gave it away and that was the day they broke the back of poverty in their family.
4. Pastor David Ibiyeomie
Pastor David Ibiyeomie, once revealed the secret to why God anointed him for wealth. He said that he once sold some of the best things he had and sowed the proceeds as seed for evangelism. He also disclosed that he further sowed heavy financial seeds during the building of the church. He had no car and was trekking when he sowed the seed. But now, it is very obvious that God has uplifted him and his ministry.
5. Pastor Paul Enenche
Pastor Paul Enenche recently revealed that he travelled for a meeting and his wife gave out their clothes as seed in his absence. She heard a powerful message and then decided to give out their clothes as a seed. He then revealed that from that day, the harvest has not stopped. Someone sent him a text and said, “Please sir, can I have your measurements and those of your wife?” When he asked him what the measurements are for, he said he wanted to invest in their lives. Then he told his wife that we could never recover from being clothed in life. That is the result of sowing seeds.
