62nd annual convention of the Redeemed Christian Church of
God, RCCG, on account of the growing concern for deadly Ebola

and women as full pastors.

Pastor D.A Ilori, an Assistant General Overseer and a retired
member of Governing Council of the church illustrated this

Administration and Personnel and new member of the church’s
Governing Council, Pastor Johnson Odesola preached the only
sermon of the day entitled, “The seal of God”, outlining some of
the benefits of the seal to include deliverance, protection and
preservation, guarantee the fatherhood of God and assurance of
making Heaven.
