On Saturday, February 15th, Christ Embassy Lagos Zone 2, SouthWest Nigeria, organized a Valentine’s Day youth program, themed ‘Perfect love’, with the esteemed Zonal Director, Pastor Emeka Eze. The special event had over 4,000 delegates from churches across the zone, secondary schools and other youth organizations in attendance. Attendees were taught, inspired and equipped with tools to live excellent lives.
The event featured impactful plenary and capacity building sessions on various topics such as ‘the Perfect and Excellent Youth’, ‘How to Excel in Your Academics’, ‘How to Increase Your Church Attendance’ and more. These sessions were facilitated by seasoned Pastors in the zone. Delegates were imbued with leadership skills, admonished to develop intimate fellowship with the Holy Ghost and galvanized to wield greater influence in their world with the investments of their personalities. Musical renditions, dance performances, spoken word and other arts were also presented by the LoveWorld Music and Art Ministry at the event. These orchestrated a fun-filled atmosphere of joy, love and celebration.
The event came to its climax when the esteemed Zonal Director, Pastor Emeka Eze, took the stage and began to minister to the youths present. He shared on the topic ‘Perfect Love’. Reading from 1 Corinthians 13:1-8, Pastor Emeka taught that, over the years, society has wrongly defined love, but true love is clearly defined by the Bible. He further stressed that perfect love is God's kind of love (Agape) which is not a feeling but an instruction. The youths were encouraged to walk with the Holy Spirit who guides and helps them change unhealthy habits.
The event came to a close with something to shout about, an altar call for salvation to which over 513 youths responded, giving their hearts to Christ. The youths at this year's Valentine's Day program have been fired up, inspired and rightly positioned to live perfect and purposeful lives, impacting their world for Jesus.
