The newly inducted Regional Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Akinyele Region (which comprises of Lagos and Ogun states), Pastor Moses O. Yusuff has stated that his primary assignment is church planting.



Pastor Yusuff noted this on Sunday June 17, 2018 in an interview with Journalists at the inauguration of Akinyele Region and his induction as the pioneer Regional Superintendent.



He said that being the Regional Superintendent of Akinyele Region is a big responsibility and the authorities of the church are expecting that he should do exploits for the owner of the work which is Jesus Christ, adding that he believes that God will help him.



“ My primary assignment is church planting and expansion of the gospel. The church planting policy of the forefathers of this church helped me to be converted from Islam to Christianity around 1960s. If they didn’t engage in church planting I would not have been converted and become a member of CAC.” 


“In Akinyele Region we are also going to ensure that wherever new churches are planted, schools will be planted there as well and this is for the sake of evangelism. Somebody donated 10 acres of land in Ijebu for the church and this will be very useful for this region,” he explained.




He also noted that the region will organise regional crusades and powerful programmes for the youth.


"I know I have a big task ahead of me and that is why I have been asking people to support me with their prayers. Anybody who loves God and the church should go into prayer and fasting at least once in a week to pray for Akinyele Region in order for the region to progress and be a model for other regions."



"I want everyone in the region starting from the ministers of God to be educated. We need to educate ourselves. If the Lord can help me to be educated up to higher institution level, I don’t think any minister should hesitate to study more. Although academic prowess is not what matter most, what matter most is spiritual and moral development so that we will be good example for others to follow. However, academic prowess is also very important."


"The ministers should know that ministry is not for money making, it is to serve the Lord. My first vision is to develop the ministers of God in order for them to be bible-oriented both morally and theologically. I will start with the DCC, Zonal and District Superintendents. We look for a central place to organize two or three days seminars for them. The Regional Headquarters at Ebute Elefun may be too cumbersome for them to come because of the distance considering we have ministers from far places in Ogun state, but we will look for a venue that will be very accessible to all. Oke Igbala, Olorunsogo or Agege may possibly be considered."


"After that, we will start monitoring them as it was when I started Sunday school in CAC Worldwide so that the standard of our fathers will not drop and it will come into display."


"The gospel ministry is not money making. Today some people are running after titles. They want to be DS, ZS or DCC Superintendents. There are districts and zones that are not viable. Only one or two church become district. That is not the interest of the authorities of the church. At least a district should have three assemblies. I am praying earnestly that God should help me to achieve this for His glory."


"My prayer for all the regional superintendents including myself is that God should give us extraordinary ability to bring development to the church even to the grassroots level. We will make use of the young ones and the youth maximally for the expansion of the gospel. The first assignment stated in my letter is that the region was created for the expansion and growth of the church. All DCCs and Zones have herculean work to do regarding planting of churches."


"We also have it in mind to have a mission department for Akinyele region. We will have a mission department where missionaries will be sent to other countries. DCCs and Zones will shoulder some mission fields.  We will work together with the mission department in Ibadan to achieve this," he stated.
