Themed "MID-WIVES MINISTERIAL AND PROFESSIONAL ETHICS," from Exodus 1:17, the seminar held on Thursday, 3rd November, 2022 at the Akilling regional headquarters, 5, Shiaba Street, Agege, Lagos State.


The midwives seminar, aimed at making all midwives become role models for the church members to emulate and ultimately, proclaim the Gospel of Christ through professionalism of midwifery and eventually leads many souls to Christ, was declared opened by the Coordinator of the Akiling Region Faith Home Department, and Superintendent, Kingdom Zone, Pastor J. A. S. Akinleye.

  1. CAC needs to upgrade this midwives and the School of midwivery at Ede in general. Our midwives of this dispensation cant even administer simple first aid in times of critical health condition. ECWA school of midwives came after us and now thier certificate has been approved by the government while our own school of midwivery still carries Traditional Birth Attendant Certificate after 2 years of hard labour. This should be critically looked into by the authority of the church
