Ilorin City Fire Crusade to hold in December


By 'Gbenga Bankole


The 2020 edition of the annual City Fire Crusade which is the initiative of the Holy Spirit through Evang. E.T. Akeredolu, the DCC Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Ilorin Districts' Coordinating Council (DCC) would hold at the headquarters of CAC Ilorin DCC from Monday 7th to Friday 11th November, 2020.


CAC News gathered that "The King of Glory" is the theme of the programme whose morning session starts by 6am, while evening session starts by 5pm on daily basis. The guest minister is the DCC Superintendent of Osogbo DCC, Pastor Gideon Obiwale.


In an interview with CAC News, Evang. Akeredolu said the programme is an instruction given to him from the Lord and he has been holding it since he was the DCC Superintendent of Ayetoro DCC in Osogbo. 


He explained that "God ordered me that I should hold a programme for Him tagged “Osogbo City Fire Crusade” and I started by the grace of God and I spent my account to red for God to make the crusade a reality and God really moved mightily. Since then I have been holding it from one state to another. It has been held in Auchi in Edo State, Idoani Akoko in Ondo State and in Lagos at Baptist Academy, Obanikoro which was also tagged Lagos City Fire Crusade. It was held in Lagos up till last year when I was the DCC Superintendent of Somolu DCC."


"After being transferred to Ilorin DCC by the Authority of CAC Worldwide, God also asked me to stage the same crusade in Ilorin tagged “Ilorin City Fire Crusade.” I told the Board of Elders and they told me that since it is an instruction from the Lord they have nothing against it."


According to him, the first testimony from the previous edition is soul winning, saying that people gave their lives to Christ and there are many testimonies on healing, but his main target is to add more people to God’s kingdom through the help of the Holy Spirit. 


"The Angel appeared in the year 2015 live at the roof of Freedom Park in Osogbo and if you Google it you will see it online. God had been using the programme to draw people to Himself. I could remember when we held Lagos City Fire Crusade, one of the well known “Area Boys” in the area was on the pedestrian bridge of Obanikoro Bus-Stop when he started running and he ran to the crusade ground shouting “I want to give my life to Jesus Christ.” He said something pushed him that he can’t control himself. He said he had been smoking and drinking alcohol for many years, but he couldn’t do without it a day before the crusade."


"Also at Ido-Ani in Ondo State I baptised 105 converts who gave their lives to Christ. It was really amazing when one of my old childhood friends came out to give his life to Christ during the crusade. He was the first person to come out when I made altar call. People were smiling and thought he didn’t hear what I said because he was a well known drunkard in the environ. To the glory of God, he is now an Evangelist. He preaches the gospel from one street to the other. His mother said she never knew he could stop drinking, but he is now an Evangelist. Anytime I travel home I always make sure I see him and encourage him."
