The founding Bishop of Victory Life International, Bishop Mike Bamidele has encouraged ministers of God not to be tired of preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ notwithstanding the challenges that may confront them.
Bishop Bamidele gave this urge at a Minister’s Fire Conference, a programme held on Monday at Government Technical College in Osogbo to herald the Pentecost Day programme that was held later that day.
The Minister’s Fire Conference was organised to equip pastor, ministers and evangelisers for greater evangelism and revival in their spiritual lives.
Delivering his sermon, Bishop Bamidele, the convener of the Pentecost Day Celebration, charged ministers of God to be bold, confident and courageous in their ministration and evangelism.
In his sermon tagged: “The Undeniable Secrets of a Successful Minister,” Bishop Bamidele said any minister of God who had not yet have encounter with the Holy Spirit is not fit to be a minister.
According to him, the celebration of the Pentecost afforded ministers and other believers the opportunity of having fresh encounter with the Holy Spirit in order to be fortified for greater evangelism.
Part of secrets of how ministers of God can be successful, according to Bamidele, is meeting the Holy Spirit and boldness to complete the spiritual assignments.
He said, “successful ministers must be filled with the Holy Spirit. This encounter will lead to transformation because this Spirit will make ministers bold, courageous and confident to overcome challenges,” Bishop Bamidele said.
The bishop therefore prayed for the participant ministers across different churches and denominations.
Other highlights of the conference included Church planting by all denominations and the release of power for signs and wonders by Bishop Bamidele.
