Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Olwarotimi Akeredolu has opened the first branch of Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) outside Lagos.

The branch was in Akure, Ondo State, the home state of its founder, the late Prophet TB Joshua.

The edifice, sited along Ilesha-Owo Expressway on more than five hectares of land can accommodate over 6,000 worshippers with its overflow canopies. 

Akeredolu, who was represented by his Deputy, Lucky Ayedatiwa, described the Akure branch as “a giant stride of the church under the leadership of Pastor Evelyn Joshua with tremendous grace for the upliftment of the people of Ondo State in particular who will benefit more of God’s blessings as people from this environment won’t have to be travelling to Lagos for worship because the spirit of God is one and is here.” 

He commended the vision of the SCOAN and congratulated Pastor Mrs Joshua for her perseverance in holding forth and reinforcing the legacy of the founder. 

He also commended SCOAN members for their laudable efforts and commitment in opening its branch in Ondo State. 

According to the Deputy Governor, the importance of church could not be overemphasized in individual life and nation building.

“The moral character mouldings, love, peace and unity preached by the church are cardinal principles of true nation building. With this new branch here many lives will be turned around,” he said.

Pastor Mrs Evelyn TB Joshua, in her address said the opening of the Akure branch was out of the divine command to expand.

“We are doing this today by God’s authority and permission of the Holy Spirit to meet the expanding dream of the Ministry by spreading Christ’s message and evangelism.

“Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has further brought salvation, healing, deliverance and God’s abundant blessings to your domains and it has come to stay with regular church activities,” she said.

She expressed gratitude to members and partners all over the world for their steadfastness and efforts for the glory of God.
