Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has been an important figure in global religion for three decades as he has been bringing the “Word of God” to the people of the worlds directly into their homes. Chris Oyakhilome is about much more than just teaching through his Bible based ministry, instead the Nigerian born minister wants to help all the people of the world to live better lives by bringing his life teachings to people through a range of different media.
Many of the follower of Pastor Chris first became aware of the Christ Embassy ministry through the popular television based work he has completed over the last three decades that is broadcast around the world. One of the most impressive aspects of the work of the Pastor has been the growth of his devotional based series “Rhapsody of Realities” that has become a major part of the work he completes with several million copies being read each and every day by the followers of the Christ Embassy; Pastor Chris also explore the possibilities each and every follower of his ministry have through his motivational writings that include better ways of living based on the power of Biblical scripture.
In 2017 the work of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome took on a new urgency when the minister set out to bring his teachings to the people of Zimbabwe with a live event that has seen the people of this African nation arriving up to a day in advance to secure an excellent viewing spot for this service and communion event. Excitement began to build months before the event in Harare, Zimbabwe when the Pastor began to discuss Zimbabwe as a place with a special place in his heart; not only did the people of Zimbabwe become excited about the arrival of Chris Oyakhilome when the event was first announced, but TV images of the 60,000 seat stadium being prepared by Pastor Oyakhilome’s second in command, Reverend Tom Amenkhienan arriving at the venue to make sure all the preparations were in place and completed to the highest standards.
The number of people looking to attend the service given by Pastor Chris in Zimbabwe had seen around 100,000 individuals register to take part in the service from dedicated viewing locations; however, those who had not registered were also being told to attend the event and view the work of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome from one of the seven overflow areas that have been set up by the Christ Embassy team. The preparations of the Christ Embassy team have been ongoing for more than two weeks at the stadium site as the stadium has been prepared for the arrival of Pastor Oyakhilome, who is said to be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit that he has already stated will allow him to bring special news about the future of Zimbabwe. The hope of Pastor Oyakhilome is that Zimbabwe will not only receive a short term benefit from his visit, but that his arrival will coincide with the nation seeing the arrival of a religious tradition that will continue for many years to come.
