Religious stewardship beyond physical, Olonisakin tells Nigerian leaders

CHIEF of Defence Staff (CDS), General Gabriel Olonishakin, has urged church leaders to look beyond church walls in their evangelical drive.



The CDS noted that religious stewardship in the 21st century goes beyond church budgets and building projects.

Olonisakin spoke at the weekend at the 29th convocation ceremony and 30th anniversary of West Africa Theological Seminary (WATS) in Ipaja, Lagos State.



The CDS, who was represented by the Chaplain of the Defence headquarters, Abuja, 2nd Lt.-Col. Chukwudi Ochoji, said it was important for Christian leaders in the 21st century to connect with godly actions.

He pleaded with the graduating clerics to embrace a larger perspective of stewardship which connects more with the people.

“As Christian leaders in the 21st century, I urge us to embrace the larger views of leadership, which reaches beyond church budgets or church projects. It connects everything we do with what God is doing in the world.

“Christian leaders need to be faithful stewards of all that God has given us within the opportunities presented through the providence to glorify him, serve the common good and further his kingdom,” Olonisakin said.

The CDS congratulated the graduating students for completing what they started.

He hailed the founder of WATS, Dr. Gary Maxey, for holding on to his vision of the seminary and for his doggedness over the years.
