"Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do," says Pele. This is the true definition of the success story of Mrs. Ologunaye-Jacobs Christianah Foye', wife of the English Assembly Pastor of CAC Oke-Ado DCC headquarters English Assembly as she emerged the best graduating student at the 25th Convocation Ceremony of Christ Apostolic Church Theological Seminary, Ile-Ife, Ibadan Campus held last Saturday. In this interview with 'Gbenga Bankole, Mrs. Ologunaye-Jacobs speaks on how she was able to achieve this historical feat. 

What is responsible for your decision to go to theological seminary?

It's because I have a burden that I should have more knowledge of the Word of God.

What were the challenges you encountered as a student in school?

The challenges include: funds, time management, and majorly I have always been a science student where I mostly use formulae. So, to express myself, explaining some questions seemed to be a challenge to me because I've not been used to much words.

How do you feel emerging the best graduating student?

I was so elated to emerge as the best graduating student and I do give the glory to God. 

What was your final CGPA?

My final CGPA was 4.56.

Does being a Pastor's wife really help or inspire you to emerge as the best graduating student?

I don't think being a Pastor's wife really helped. I return all the glory to God the custodian of wisdom and strength.

What were the roles of your husband in this achievement?

Thank God for my husband. He gave financially and morally during the course. He believed in me and was always reminding me that If I could have first class in my secular school, I can make it again. He was available for our kids when I wasn't available.

Pastors wives are known to be very busy with many activities both indoor and in church. How do you achieve this feat despite your tight schedule?

Yes, you are right. I just know God gave me the grace to juggle my home, job, ministerial commitments and being a student. When I was admitted into the Seminary I asked God to give me all grace I need to keep my home, my job, my ministerial commitments and then achieve good success. Therefore all I can say is that God gave me the grace.

Which course was your most preferred and why?

I did not have any preference. I treated all the courses equally. I believe they were all important courses and were meant for moulding me.

You have been a Pastor's wife for many years, should we be expecting you to play another role henceforth in the ministry, probably as a Evang. (Mrs.) in church?

I still remain a Pastor's wife by the grace of God. I will continue to give more support to my husband in the ministry. I have always been a teacher of God's word, counsellor and intercessor to support my husband.

Are you planning to go for your second degree very soon?

I wish to have my second degree in Theology if there is fund, God willing.

What is your advice for Pastors' wives who never had the plan to go to theological seminary?

Pastor's wives should make efforts to support their husbands in their own capacities and if need be, they should seek Seminary Education.
