By 'Gbenga Bankole


55 students graduated at the recently held 20th Convocation Ceremony of Christ Apostolic Church Theological Seminary (CACTS), Kabba Campus, Kogi State.



The 55 graduands comprised 24 Degree graduands, 22 Diploma graduands and 9 Certificate graduands.



While delivering his address, the Coordinator of CACTS, Kabba Campus, Pastor M.O. Abe said the graduands have been theologically trained, spiritually groomed, academically tutored and ethically discipled in Christ Jesus to effectively work on the church.



Pastor Abe charged them to emulate Christ in all lifestyles and they should be ambassadors of our Lord Jesus Christ anywhere He sends them.



He added: "always put it at the back of your mind that a day is coming when you will give account of your stewardship. Remember that your character is what you are and your reputation is what people say about you."


 
The Cleric also thanked the authority for their support towards the progress of the Seminary.



In his exact words: "I register my infinite gratitude to our fathers and authority of the church for their immeasurable support in all ramifications most importantly the General Executive Council headed by the President, Pastor Abraham O. Akinosun; the General Superintendent, Pastor Samuel O. Oladele; the General Evangelist, Prophet Hezekiah O. Oladeji; the General Secretary, Pastor Ezekiel E. Mapur and the Finance Director, Pastor Johnson F. Omitinde. May the Lord Almighty continue to lead, guide, guard, and grant you extraordinary wisdom to superintend the affairs of the Seminary and the Church in Jesus mighty name. I am also using this medium to wholeheartedly express my profound gratitude to the first Regional Superintendent of Babajide Region, Pastor M.A. Ogundeji, who always responds to the needs of our Campus as they arise. You will never fail in Jesus name,"



"The unrelented efforts of the Governing Council Members of CACTS headed by our father, Pastor E.S. Famuyide in enhancing accelerated progress of the main Campus and all satellite campuses are highly commendable. Without fear or favour, I sincerely commend, appreciate and express my gratitude to our father, the servant leader of our generation, a lover of progress, a man of unbeatable endurance and outstanding humility, a doyen of holiness, a formidable and teachable teacher, a charismatic administrator, an uncompromising and principled servant of the Almighty God, an Academian of CAC Seminary and the ‘ONLY’ Provost of CAC Seminary, Pastor S.O.A. Afolabi who ensures discipline and accelerated development of our campus. You will always succeed in Jesus name.
I cannot thank God enough for blessing CAC Seminary with another leader, a disciplinarian, a highly experienced teacher, articulate orator, distinguished administrator, the Scribe and the ‘ONLY’ Registrar of CAC Seminary, Pastor T.A. Adesoji who at all times ensures that normal administrative protocols are systematically followed in day-to-day seminary activities. You will never fail in Jesus name."




The Chairman, CACTS, Kabba Campus, Pastor J.A. Oyeyemi while delivering his speech congratulated the school management and students on having another graduation this year, stating that this is what confirms the aliveness of the institution.



Pastor Oyeyemi told that the graduands: "when you pull out onto the field this afternoon, you’ll be travelling unto new roads. Picture yourself standing there in front of your dorm, by yourself, you will look up the street, you’ll look down the street. You’ll see side walks that head across campus, to places you’ve never been. It will be an awkward, exciting, terrifying, exhilarating, lonely moment when you stand alone. And you’ll wonder: WHICH WAY NOW?
When that disorienting moment comes, I want you to remember some very simple words. Take these words and put them into your pocket so you have them on hand. They are from scripture, from the book of Jeremiah. Here they are:
This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the cross roads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good is and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls (Jeremiah 6:16).
As a young traveller, someone who left family and the stability of the life at campus. This verse can be a quick compass for you. The belief you may have taken for granted at this Christian school will be challenged in a big way,"




"In the classroom you had wrestled with unfamiliar ideas and lectures you don’t know. You’d faced tricky social dynamics. You’ve lived with folks who come from different religious and moral and ethical points of view. Truth that seems clear to you today will be shaken, you will be challenged to think critically about God, about the word, about yourself. This is a right and necessary process. It is your work of growing up to become the one God has created you to be, on your own as an adult. What will you do when you’re out there on your own, when the world around you begins to shift? When you stand at the crossroads, which of the many paths will you take? Here again are the words of Jeremiah. This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the cross roads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good is and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls (Jeremiah 6:16). In the coming years, will you ask for the ancient paths? And if you find the good way, will you walk in it? Will you find rest for your soul? I pray that you will walk in the confidence and hope of Christ. That you will have courage to live and learn boldly. May the peace of Jesus Christ go with you wherever He may send you, may He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storms, may He bring you home rejoicing."
