To celebrate and immortalise Christian faith heroes who have impacted and influenced lives greatly in Nigeria and beyond in the present generation, Heavenly Insights Media, a group of selfless and vibrant Christians engaged in nourishing spiritual renewal and highlighting Christian role models, is putting together an event to this effect.

Tagged, ‘God in is in Nigeria! – Celebrating Heroes of Faith’ and billed for May 25 in Nigeria, the event amongst other things will be showcasing these ‘heroes’ as worthy ambassadors of Christ to be emulated as role models. These great men/women are successful, rich, powerful, influential and philanthropic in nature, changing lives and giving life a meaning and hope to reach millions all over the world. They perform miracles, demonstrating the power of God, confirming the words of Jesus Christ.

These Christian giants, the coordinator of the project, Rufus Oba, said have contributed immensely to the growth of lives and development of the country in more ways than we could ever have imagined.
“They are effectively and fervently praying always for the peace of this country, they are building schools, giving out scholarships, feeding and housing the destitute, less-privileged, motherless babies, paying hospitals bills for accident victims etc., for all that they are doing for this country nobody thought about celebrating them up until about now. We want to give honour to whom honour is due and they truly deserve it,” he noted.

Speaking further, Oba said, “We are already talking with a lot of these chosen ones who have given their consent and are also praying for the epoch making event. There has never before been a large gathering of these heavy weights in one function in the history of Christianity or any other religion in this country or anywhere else. This event will be held on the May 25, 2017 in yet to be decided state or place but we are in touch with the Cross River, Akwa Ibom and Lagos states authorities for final confirmation.”

Activities lined up will include some of Nigeria’s best gospel artistes, comedians amongst others while dignitaries will be drawn from all walks of life. There are also various materials in form of T-Shirts, calendars, and exercise books for sale and to be given out to people free, using these material as evangelism tool to reach souls across the world. The organisers are also working on the book about these 50 great men/women, their lives, impact, influence, and how they started church and so on. “It’s time to speak up and to reach out to every home, office in Nigeria and beyond to make known to the world how God is using these great men and women,” Oba added.
