Historical background of CAC Ministers’ Wives’ Fellowship

Mrs Victoria Akinosun, Ministers’ Wives’ Fellowship Leader


Christ Apostolic Church Ministers’ Wives Fellowship (CACMWF) is another prominent unit of the church where women are doing exploits. The fellowship was initiated at the national level in 1973 by Benjamin Okpaise, the then national publicity secretary. Mrs C.O. Latunde was the first president while Mrs Modupe Okpaise was the first secretary. The second chairperson was Mrs M.S. Obafemi while other officers include Taye Odesola, E.O. Olajide, and L.O. Alokan. Its first conference was held at Moore, Ile Ife and it is still being held on annual basis at Ikeji Arakeji and in the other sections of the church. Like other association fellowships of the church, a written report of its deliberation is submitted to the executive council of the church. 


It is statutory for the wife of the incumbent CAC president to be the chairperson of the fellowship. Therefore, for this reason, Mrs Akinosun is its present chairperson.


The purpose of its annual conference is to coordinate wives of ministers, train and groom them spiritually by the older women in a bid to enhance their cooperation with their husbands in the ministry as well as build good christian homes. Its meetings feature lectures meant to promote christian holy living, the role of a minister’s wife, the christian home, the church and women ministry, humility, steadfastness, and dedication to God.


It is obligatory for all wives of serving ministers to be members of ministers’ wives’ fellowship by registration and compliance with the rules and regulations of the fellowship. The function of the fellowship is quite different from that of the good women association. The local meetings are held at DCC and zonal levels while the national programmes are held on a yearly basis at CAC International Miracle Ground, Ikeji Arakeji, Osun State. For north section, in Abuja and for the south south and south east, in Port Harcourt.
