CAN warns pastors against ‘stealing’ late PFN chairman’s church members

The Bauchi State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Wednesday warned pastors in the state not to steal members of the church of the late chairman of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) in the state, Reverend Emmanuel Ogbeba.

Reverend Ogbeba died recently.

The warning was handed down by CAN chairman in the state, Rev Abraham Damina Dimeus, at the evening of Service of Songs in memory of its late Rev Ogbeba, organised by the state chapter of PFN.

Speaking at the service held at the Gospel Life Church, the CAN chairman described Ogbeba’s death as a great loss to the Christian community in Bauchi State, adding that the death has created a vacuum that will be hard to fill. While saying that the deceased, who was the General Superintendent of Gospel Life Church, lived an exemplary life worthy of emulation by all, Dimeus warned other PFN pastors to steer clear of Ogbeba’s ministry.

According to the CAN chairman, “Don’t come to steal the members he left behind because poaching church members is satanic.”
In his own remarks at the solemn event, the state PFN vice chairman, declared that their chairman’s death was a great loss to the Fellowship.
He noted that, “his (Ogbeba’s) leadership style was worthy of emulation because he ensured that every member was carried along.”
