Adesoji, Coordinator, CACTS Lagos Campus, Pastor Ayo Olaniyi and Registrar/Secretary, CACTS Lagos Campus, Pastor J.O. Yinka Alonge among others.

While ministering on the topic "Let us Tread the Ancient Path," President of CAC Worldwide, Pastor Akinosun urged the graduands not to follow Jesus Christ from afar, noting that they should develop an intimacy with Him for a fulfilling ministry.

He also advised them to be careful of teachings that are totally against the scripture, saying that Jesus Christ should be their message to the world.

The Coordinator of CACTS Lagos Campus, Pastor Olaniyi said, while delivering the "Coordinator's Speech" that the 317 graduands have learnt key theological values and have been shown the vision, mission and belief system of Christ Apostolic Church.

He noted that they have also acquired biblical doctrinal knowledge for an effective ministry within the Christ Apostolic Church and beyond.

According to him, the graduands have passed through both intellectual and spiritual drillings that will last them through life and ministry.

He congratulated them for being part of the privileged few who have benefited from Christ Apostolic Church's foundation of God's knowledge.

Pastor Olaniyi disclosed that "in the course of 2018/2019 Academic Session, the Lord increased our coast through the authority of this church who directed that a study centre be commenced in Abeokuta. This came a short time after the Management Committee of our campus, led by our father, Pastor M.O. Yusuf, Regional Superintendent, Akinyele Region, had received the approval to expand our service delivery to Ikorodu. It has been a prayer well answered for those had  wished to train for ministry service but constrained from doing so by distance-related factors."

Regional Superintendent of Akinyele Region, Pastor Yusuf who is also the Chairman Management Committee of CACTS Lagos urged the graduands to remember that their calling is service focused.

"Remember that your calling is service focused meaning a call to servanthood as Paul described in most of his writings. Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an Apostle, separated unto the Gospel of God. It is never a  derogative title, but an identity of mandate," Pastor Yusuf said.

He urged them to serve God diligently with all their ministerial gifts and abilities, saying that they should be committed to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ as this is their reasonable service.

The Provost of CACTS, Pastor Afoloabi in his speech said the graduands have succeeded in joining the fortunate ones in the  world of intellectuals.

He implored them not to start to feel that they are fulfilled, urging them to forge ahead to update themselves in order not to be outdated.
