The Regional Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Akinyele Region, Pastor Moses O. Yusuff has stated that the CAC at all levels must go back to church planting as laid down by the forefathers of the church.



He said that the overwhelming zeal of the forefathers of the church for evangelism and church planting is responsible for what today's generation is enjoying.



Pastor Yusuff noted this while preaching on the topic "Challenges to God's Directive" at the induction service of Pastor Gideon O. Oladokun as the 4th Superintendent of CAC Itire Districts' Coordinating Council (DCC) at the weekend.



He said that as the people  of Macedonia were calling on Apostle Paul to come and save them,  the same way Nigerians are calling on CAC Worldwide to come and save the country.



"Majority of us in this mission are too comfortable. We are no longer pursuing the Kingdom of God. We are saving our monies in banks while souls are perishing. There is no passh ion for church planting again. Even those who are planting churches these days are turning it to their personal properties. The land in which CAC Ketu DCC was built was  donated to the Late Pastor Olutimehin who gave it freely to the church. The land of the present General Secretariat of CAC Worldwide in Ibadan, belonged to the first President of the church, Pastor Isaac Akinyele, but he gave it freely to the church. Majority of our ministers today are not toeing that line," the cleric stated.



According to him, it is high time we woke up from our slumber and devoted our time to evangelism and church planting.


He further stated that: "in Akinyele Region each DCC, Zone and District is mandated to buy land and plant a church on yearly basis. We don't need to be looking for millions of naira to buy land. There are places in the rural areas where we can still get an acre of land for less than a million naira. Before I retired, I have plan to buy a piece of land in the name of CAC and build a befitting worship centre."



The Regional Superintendent urged the newly inducted Itire DCC Superintendent, Pastor Oladokun to show more interest in church planting, stating that Itire is well known as a planter church.
