Christ Apostolic Church, Agbokojo Assembly, Ibadan Districts' Coordinating Council (DCC) headquarters, Ibadan, Oyo State, on Sunday November 21, 2021 held a commendation service for one of her former Pastors, late Pastor Gabriel Oladokun Olagunju.

Pastor Olagunju was posted to CAC Agbokojo as a Church Catechist (Evangelist) in the year 1968 and later became Assembly Pastor of the same church in 1976.

The well attended service was held at the DCC headquarters in Agbokojo Ibadan and had in attendance notable ministers such as the Superintendent of Ibadan DCC, Pastor S.A. Omosanya, Superintendent of Yemetu DCC, Pastor Benjamen Akanmu, Pastor Toyin Fasina and many others.

While ministering at the programme on the topic "When the Game is over we shall all return Home" and taking the text from Neh. 2:1-5 and II Timothy 4:7-8, the Superintendent of Yemetu DCC, Pastor Akanmu said when the game is over we shall all return home.

Commenting on CAC hymn book 756 which was one of the hymns for the service, Pastor Akanmu said it is only those who get home that their sorrow will cease when they get home.

"Don't forget the assignment you are sent to do on earth. We have a home at the end of our journey on earth. Don't be distracted. Don't be carried away with people who are clapping hands for you when you are doing a wrong thing. Avoid distraction, you are sent on assignment," the Cleric said.

While giving the vote of thanks on behalf of Lagunju family, the Superintendent of CAC Christ the King DCC, Pastor David O. Oladipo appreciated the church for their support and the Choir for their beautiful rendition.

The late Pastor Olagunju was posted to CAC Agbokojo in the year 1968 as Church Catechist, under Pastor M.G.O. Adelesi of Blessed memory, who was the Assembly Pastor.

It was during Pastor Lagunju's tenure that CAC Agbokojo started the Church Harvest which the church celebrated for the first time on Sunday 11th November 1968.

The Preacher of the first Harvest Thanksgiving service was Pastor J.B. Orogun, former President of CAC Worldwide of Blessed Memory.

Pastor Lagunju later went for further training and after the training he was posted to Christ Apostolic Church Onyanrin Ibadan. He was later transferred to Christ Apostolic Church Agbokojo in 1976 as the Assembly Pastor. Pastor Lagunju worked devotedly to see that people have the thorough knowledge of the Bible. He published the magazine known as 'Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free"

The magazine was tagged "THE TRUTH' which he started in the year 1984. He started a training for potential ministers of the word, the rudiments of the Bible. Pastor 'Lagunju in his lifetime was a Teacher to the Core, Disciplinarian and a Brave Pastor who faced many challenges and was able to overcome.

God used Pastor 'Lagunju to change the structure of the second Church Building of 1957-1978. The third Building was pulled down and the foundation of the present Church building started in 1978 and completed in 1983, with thorough supervision.

Glory be to God, Pastor 'Lagunju was later transferred to Christ Apostolic Church Agbowo U.I. Ibadan in the year 1987, after eleven (11) fruitful years at CAC Agbokojo, Ibadan.
