I bring you greetings from our Lord and personal Saviour Jesus Christ, the one that has called us to present us to himself faultless, to Him be all glory and praise.
I welcome you to LEAN 2017, Lagos Nigeria. Divine Chaplaincy International Inc. Divine Institute of Chaplaincy Corps Int’l and United Chaplain State of New York welcome you with love and high expectation. As you partake of this well packaged four day event, may you encounter God in the most unusual way. In this event, the Lord has promised us to wipe away tears from the eyes of His people, hence, the theme, “Don’t Let Them Cry”
In the last nine months, the Lord has enabled us to reach out and expand to various parts of Nigeria, equipping men to take the gospel beyond the spheres of the local church. Our thrust is to establish Commands in every major city in Nigeria and every national capital in Africa. To this end, we celebrate our accomplishments in establishing professional Chaplaincy Faculties with universities in the Middle East and the United Kingdom by affiliation; this will aid the development and efficient service deployment by our Chaplains in a professional manner.
We call on all and sundry to embrace this re-energized vision and let’s take the gospel of the kingdom and humanitarian services to its utmost expression.
As we release this Magazine during this conference, we send it to homes and offices as a voice for chaplaincy services throughout Africa, Europe, Asia-Middle and Far East.
Welcome once again and God bless you.
