The Pastor in charge of Region 8, Pastor Sunday Edward Akande has laid the foundation of a secondary school christened “Christ The Redeemer College” at the Northern Region Redemption camp Kassa in Barakin-Ladi local government area of Plateau State.
The school is designed to have 16 classrooms, boys and girls hostels, an administrative block and other basic facilities that would propel learning in a conducive environment.
Speaking during the foundation laying ceremony of the school, Pastor Akande who is also the Special Assistant (Technical) to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, said the foundation laying was part of the policy of the Redeemed Christian Church of God to promote sound education and as well raise leaders of tomorrow that would have the fear of God.
According to him, sound education couple with spiritual upbringing is the bedrock of any society adding that society that desire to grow under the watch of good leaders to pilot it’s affairs cannot afford to joke with the two.
“God is a master builder who works in partnership with men and a rewarder of those who are in partnership with him. The laying of this foundation is in line with the policy thrust of the RCCG to promote education and raise children that would be God fearing.
“What we are doing today is also a stepping stone toward building another campus of Remembers’ University in this camp ground in line with the vision of our father in the Lord Pastor Adeboye. There is enough land to accommodate all these laudable programmes” he said.
In his comments, the School Board Chairman, Pastor Tunde Ologere commended the General Overseer and his wife Pastor (Mrs.) Folu Adeboye for their vision adding the laying of foundation was a concept towards expansion of the existing Christ The Redeemer College at Keana link in Jos.
He therefore called on members of the church and parents to team up with the management of the school towards making the project a reality within a short period of time as outlined by the board.
