CAC Osinubi celebrates 50 as regional superintendent, Yusuf decorates the occasion

Paul has planted and Apolo has watered, building the church that flourishes to the joy of Christ. This expression best applies to Christ Apostolic Church Osinubi’s golden jubilee, a Church with a humble beginning, full of endurance and purpose, now emerging victorious, becoming a model to others at 50.

Christ Apostolic Church, Oke-Iyanu Osinubi Ijebu-Ode of its Akinyele Region has recently celebrated its 50 jubilee anniversary of existence as jubilation, encomium tears the ceremony apart.

Historically, the church started in the early 1963 when God used the late Mary Igbobine (Mama Itsekiri), then a member of Christ Apostolic Church, Folagbade, the parent of all Christ Apostolic Churches in Ijebuland, to establish the church, the very guest place of worship was in the house of one Mr. Towolawi, along Osinubi street, Ijebu-Ode.

Then, the congregation used to worship at the venue in Osinubi on weekdays, but worshipped at CAC Folagbade on Sundays. The church was under the direct supervision of CAC Folagbade until 1963 when Mama Itsekiri was given autonomy by Pastor I.D. Degun, the then Ijebu-Ode district superintendent, the rest is history.

The current district coordinating council superintendent, Pastor G.R. Akinwale asserted in his speech, “The church has causes to give praises and thanks to God, for the love and mercies bestowed on the leaders as they co-ordinate the physical and spiritual affairs of the church till the present stage”.

He said, “The auditorium started just like a new born baby who incidentally is at the mercy of his mother, today we rejoice in the Lord for bringing us this far – a journey of fifty years”. “We cannot claim to exist in isolation but through the commitment and faithfulness of all those that are concerned”, Akinwale added.

In a nutshell, the church has faced series of challenges, but to God be the glory for the victory at last, these are the messages from the chorister and the clergyman in charge. Happy 50th anniversary to the Christ Apostolic Church, Osinubi Ijebu-Ode.
