The Orogun Ministers’ Leadership Conference and Retreat culminated in an atmosphere of spiritual enrichment and knowledge-sharing, as ministers and leaders of the gospel gathered for a day of reflection and learning as God’s choice servant and General Overseer of Palace of Priests Assembly, Pastor Otive Igbuzor shared his insight on how ministers can fulfill destiny on Saturday, December 16, at First Baptist Church, Otorho-Orogun, ughelli North LGA, Delta State.
The program began with solemn opening prayers, transitioning seamlessly into a vibrant praise and worship session that infused the day with an energetic atmosphere. The crux of the Leadership Conference revolved around Pastor (Dr) Otive Igbuzor’s preface on the theme “Called to Fulfil Destiny,” extracted from his recent book.
In his opening remark, Pastor Igbuzor said, “The purpose of this conference is to Build the Leadership Capacity of Ministers And To Equip Them For Ministry. We initiated this program in 2016 to understand leadership from a biblical perspective. We sought to redefine leadership in the church beyond a mere title. Our focus included leadership and temperament, leadership’s connection with vision, strategic investment, and entrepreneurship.
“By 2021, we delved into the role of leadership in capacity building — a call to serve God and humanity while embracing our roles as kings and priests. However, there were complaints about the program’s duration, suggesting it should be an annual event.”
In his exegesis, Pastor Igbuzor emphasized the profound impact of God’s word on Christian beliefs and behavior. He highlighted the importance of studying theology and the authority of Scripture. He discussed the process of interpreting the Bible and the significance of preaching in guiding individuals toward salvation and spiritual growth.
Pastor Igbuzor further offered insights into homiletics, the science and art of preaching, stressing the preacher’s role and the elements that contribute to effective sermon delivery, outlining the topics covered in a book of sermon outlines titled “Called to Fulfill Destiny,” focusing on aspects like divine positioning, separation, divine agenda, afflictions, abundant life, divine protection, and more.
Igbuzor’s central argument revolved around God’s call to believers from darkness into light to fulfill their destinies, ultimately aiming for glory. He emphasized the need for clarity, alignment with God’s word, and divine guidance in pursuing one’s purpose. The summary underscores the importance of overcoming obstacles, embracing change, pursuing excellence, and experiencing God’s grace to achieve fulfillment and celebrate life in alignment with God’s will.
Pastor Igbuzor’s lucid teaching which drew practical lessons from his personal life, historical accounts, and the scriptures, resonated with the audience, emphasizing the essence of purpose and destiny fulfillment in ministry.
Attendees engaged in in-depth sessions exploring various sub-themes, including Divine Positioning, Divine Placement, Divine Clarity, Divine Alignment, Divine Agenda, Divine Protection, Building For Glory, Kingdom Prosperity, Open Doors, Fruitfulness, The Goodness Of God, Focusing On Results. Each segment delved into the intricacies of divine alignment, protection, and the importance of focusing on tangible results in ministry.
Earlier, in his welcome address, the host of the conference, Rev. Joseph Todo extended a warm welcome, expressing gratitude for the presence of all ministers and setting the stage for an enlightening day ahead.
“This marks the third occurrence of this program, with 97 ministers in attendance. We are thankful to God for guiding our leadership and sustaining our vision. We anticipate that by the end of today, we will experience transformation”.
“The previous meetings yielded valuable outcomes, including the book I have published, which expanded my knowledge and propelled me beyond my current level. Establishing a personal library is essential because, as the saying goes, ‘If you don’t read, you can’t lead.’ I encourage you to explore the books provided by our father, Pastor Dr. Otive Igbuzor, and challenge yourself to derive actionable insights from them before our next meeting next year.
“Having this esteemed man of God in our midst is a privilege, something for which we should be grateful. His profound love for his people is evident in his sacrificial commitment.”
The highlight of the event was the individual reflections and presentations, where ministers shared personal insights gained from the day’s discussions. Testimonials echoed the sentiment of newfound knowledge and spiritual growth, emphasizing the practicality of the lessons learned.
As the conference drew to a close, certificates were presented to participants as recognition of their commitment to growth and leadership in ministry. The event concluded with a heartfelt vote of thanks and closing remarks delivered by the Orogun PFN Chairman and CAN Chairman, expressing gratitude to all attendees, speakers, and contributors for their invaluable contributions to the success of the program.
The Orogun Ministers’ Leadership Conference and Retreat stood as a testament to the power of collective learning, spiritual rejuvenation, and the pursuit of fulfilling one’s divine destiny in the ministry.
