Daystar Christian Centre held her annual Women of Destiny Conference which came to a close on Wednesday, April 30.
Convener of the conference, Nike Adeyemi is also the Deputy Senior Pastor, Daystar Christian Centre, and wife of founder, Sam Adeyemi.
According to Adeyemi, the theme “God’ Change Agents” was divinely inspired to make every woman a change agent in the family, community and the nation, Daily Independent reports.
“We want to see women acting on behalf of God who is the author of Change. Women, who will step out there to effect good changes, make positive differences in the family, community and the nation. After this conference, we believe women will live their lives with God’s purposes, not just living ordinary but living God’s way” Adeyemi explained.
On the role of women in Nation building, Adeyemi encouraged women to speak out against the ills of the nation starting from the families. “Women also can approach God on their knees praying to God. We can get the attention of those in power to do the right things”, adding that “women can lead change in the community beginning from their home fronts. We must constantly pray for our leaders in position of authority no matter what the issues are”.
Commenting on the Chibok girls’ issue, Nike Adeyemi urged their parents not to lose hope while admonishing the incoming government to “deplore the right military strategies in finding those girls. We believe in the change slogan of the incoming administration and we hope such will reflect in the lives many Nigerians as soon as possible”.
On women taking up elective political positions, she opined “I encourage women to do whatever their hearts stir them to do. It could be politics or not but go for it after consulting God. Let us not put selling on women. If any woman feels inclined politically, the rest of us should give her support and ensure she wins. The changes she will cause in political office will be enjoyed by all including men”.
A participant, Mrs Adigun Adeyosola shared her experience thus: “I have been attending this conference since it started some six years ago. I must confess this year’s edition is awesome, powerful and glorious. I have been blessed beyond measure. I am inspired to write, create a new product or services, expand a long time idea, and develop a thought that will promote my business and home front. My expectations are met and I going home filled”.
