It was a moment of deep and sober reflection when Bauchi State chapter of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) on Wednesday evening organized a Service of Songs in memory of its late Chairman, Rev Emmanuel Ogbeba who died recently.
Speaking during the service held at the Gospel Life Church, State Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev Abraham Damina Dimeus described the death of Emmanuel Ogbeba as a great loss to the Christian community in the state saying that the vacuum will be hard to fill.
Damina Dimeus added that the late General superintendent of Gospel Life Church lived an exemplary life worthy of emulation by all stressing that as soldier of the Lord, he did well in his calling.
He then warned other PFN Pastors to steer clear of the Ministry he left behind saying, “don’t come to steal the members he left behind because poaching church members is satanic”.
In his own remarks, Bauchi State PFN Vice Chairman, Rev Promise Yohanna said that the death of Rev Emmanuel Ogbeba was a great loss to the PFN fold because according to him, “his leadership style was worthy of emulation because he ensured that every member was carried along”.
Rev Promise Yohanna added that late Emmanuel Ogbeba exemplified selfless leadership as he gave his all for the welfare of every member of the PFN accounting to his ability stressing that he never complained about lack of funds to run the affairs of the PFN.
All those who gave testimonials during the service, testified to his resilience and doggedness in the service of God for the good of humanity agreeing that the vacuum he left behind in the Christian community in Bauchi state will be too difficult to fill.
