Adefarasin charges youth to take  lead in leadership

Paul Adefarasin, the Metropolitan, House on the Rock, has called on the Nigerian youth to take the lead in the leadership trajectory of the country, just as he urges Christian faithful to be conscious of life after death in line with the Biblical injunction.

He gave the admonition during a 3-day ‘Word Conference 2022’ themed, ‘Take the Lead’. The Word Conference is an annual event geared towards equipping aspiring leaders with the knowledge and skills needed to deal with leadership and its related challenges.

“We value the practical application of God’s Word to shape who we are and what we do because we believe it has the power to transform lives. Our understanding of real life and our adherence to His message brings us hope for the afterlife,” Adefarasin stated.

At the conference he shared the importance of a positive mindset to the growth of a leader.

In each message, Adefarasin emphasised the essence of leadership and growth as it concerns Nigeria and the world at large.

The Word Conference has been a time when youth and thought leaders gather together for dynamic empowerment, and the 2022 edition was an improvement on the standard.

Also speaking at the conference, Keion Henderson, founder, CEO and senior pastor, The Lighthouse Church and Ministries said “If you’re going to take the lead, keep your strength a secret because some people benefit off your weakness,”

Wayne Malcolm, founder, and president of the International Christ Ambassadors Network (iCAN), which houses a network of churches, an academy for entrepreneurship and a global network of aspirational believers, spoke on how God has planted each individual to take over.

“God planted you in the world to take over! The only people God plants in the kingdom are those who understand the Word, take it seriously, and prioritise it,” he stated
