Christ Apostolic Church Youth Fellowship (CACYOF), Glory of God Assembly, Akure Ondo State yesterday Sunday July 8, 2018 celebrated her 20th anniversary in grand style.



CACYOF, Glory of God Assembly is the youth wing of the CAC Glory of God Assembly and majorly called the Glorious Youths. The premium the church places on the development of the youth is encapsulated in 3 "Ds" approach of the visioner; Discover, Develop and Declaration.



It was indeed a celebration of God’s faithfulness at the anniversary thanksgiving service yesterday. The service was coordinated by the youth thanks to the Superintending Minister of the church, Pastor J.M. Owoyemi.



There was presentation of awards to distinguished youths and personalities who have undoubtedly contributed their quota to the progress of the fellowship.



The Youth Coordinator, Mr. Isreal O. Afolayan told CAC NEWS that it is 20th anniversary of God’s faithfulness.



He said that; “When the church started in 1995, some FUTA Students joined and a group was encouraged to form the FUTA Brethren group within the church. After the mantle of leadership fell on a young but dynamically pragmatic vessel in person of Bro. Shola Oladiran (who was later ordained as an evangelist in the church in 2003), the FUTA Brethren group transformed to the Youth Fellowship of the church and thus, he became the first President of the Fellowship and presently the Youth Minister.



The group which started in 1997 with just about 10 students witnessed astronomical growth in 1999 - 2000 with a numerical strength of hundredths.”


“The youth fellowship caters for the general wellbeing of young ones in the church including secondary school students and higher institutions starting from FUTA to all other parts of the country.”



While speaking on the major achievements of the fellowship since the last 20years, Afolayan said; “It is on record that the fellowship invited and successfully brought a foreign Missionary (Mama Ruth Elton) to the church as a Guest Minister during one of her programs in 1999 thereby fulfilling an earlier prophecy of the founding minister at the inception of the church.”



“So also several academic distinctions has been recorded in the fellowship with an average of at least one 1st class graduand at every convocation in FUTA or other institutions since 2002.”



“The fellowship has also been able to produce great leaders who are currently making marks in their spiritual life, ministries, academics and other chosen career. These and many more achievements were made by Presidents and executives of past and present tenures.”
