The Deeper Christian Life Ministry on Saturday launched an empowerment programme, Young Eagles Soaring, to train the youths in the country in professional skills.
The Programme attended by thousands of youths who cut across the religious lines was flagged off by the Superintendent of the Church, Pastor Williams Kumuyi, at the Deeper Life Camp ground, Eyenkorin in Asa Local Government Area of Kwara State.
According to the church, the programme involved teenagers, students, Corps members and young adults.
Kumuyi who was in the state for a 7-day crusade said that his mission was meant to be a blessing under special supernatural deliverance for everyone through Christ.
“My mission is to engage the youth, not just the Christian youths or Muslim youths. I want to open the eyes of the young people and show them who they can be and what they can be, and refocus them,” he said.
The cleric added that the programme had been inspired by some of my recent engagements with young people out of Nigeria.
Addressing the youth, Kumuyi who said that every human being created by God has one talent or another urged the youths to make use of their talents to excel in life.
“I charge you to be like an Eagle that flies and soars in the sky with determination. You have the grace to be an achiever, be a goal getter, look at models and exhibit endurance,” he said.
Also speaking during an interview, the Programme Head, Campus Coordinator, Prof. Olurotimi Fayeye, said the programme was important because of the limitations that people are facing.
Fayeye, a professor of Animal Science at the University of Ilorin, said Kumuyi enlighten the youth by opening their eyes to what they can do and how to achieve it.
“Pastor Kumuyi gave them information which is the first level of how to achieve their goals in life. That is how the programme is viewed, it is an eye-opener for the youth and the pastor has told them to be determined and soar like an Eagle.”
He said that the programme was sustainable, adding that the youth would attend the programme monthly through the Impact Academy.
The State Coordinator, Deeper Life School Outreach, Dr Sunday Adewara, said that the youth would be taught practical solutions to equip them for their future careers.
