The Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Christ the King Districts' Coordinating Council (DCC), Abuja, Pastor D. O. Oladipo has said no matter how many positive qualities a leader possesses, he cannot lead for long if he lacks character.


Pastor Oladipo stated this while ministering on the topic "The Man God Uses in the Administration of His Church" last weekend at the Refresher Course of Ministers and their Wives organized by CAC Gwagwalada DCC.


The Cleric said God is looking for men who will speak accurately for Him, men who will bear the burden of ministry according to His pattern.


He further said God is looking for men who will meet the prerequisite qualifications for the kind of man He uses, adding that until God finds a man who meets His requirements, He will not release the rain.


According to him, the man God uses is the one who by God’s grace has removed every hindrance from his life citing Isaiah 59:1-2.


"The man God uses is the man who places himself absolutely at God’s disposal.The man God uses is the man who learns how to prevail in prayer. The men who have been greatly used by God have all been mighty in prayer       (John 18:1). The man God uses is the man who is a student of the word. God cannot use a man who doubts His word (Joshua 1:8, II Timothy 2:15, II Timothy 3:16).The man God uses is the man who has a vital living message for a lost world. The man God uses is the man of faith, who expects results (Hebrews 11:6).The man God uses is a man who works in the anointing of the Holy Spirit (Act 1:8). The man God uses must be a man of courage (Joshua 1:6-7)," he stated.


Pastor Oladipo noted that a leader must have the heart to communicate his vision no matter how absurd it may sound to others.
