Pastor Chris prays against the coronavirus
In the Year of Perfection, the entire world has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, which is still raging, and Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his Christ Embassy congregation have found peace and comfort in more events than ever before.
The first theme of the Year of Perfection was February’s Month of Songs, where the Christ Embassy congregation was lifted to a higher spiritual level through music.
After the Month of Songs came March’s Month of Knowledge. It was celebrated with the official opening of the Engineering Faculty of the Benson Idahosa University’s new building in Benin City, Nigeria.
In 2015, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome donated $1 billion to the project.
The Month of Knowledge also marked the time where the coronavirus in earnest got a grip on the world.
The pandemic forced people and societies across the world to adjust their lives to a new reality consisting of social distancing, working from home and lots of alcogel.
At the end of March, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome teamed up with Pastor Benny Hinn for a Global Day of Prayer against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The show was a massive success, attracting three billion online viewers.
Christ Embassy’s “Empowering” Social Media Week
In May, the Month of Opening, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome hosted a three-day-long Global Fasting and Praying session.
June, which was the Month of Prayer, included even more prayer weeks and another Global Day of Prayer.
Then came July, the Month of Productivity, where the popular “Your LoveWorld with Pastor Chris” broadcasts continued, and the LoveWorld Nation announced an online Social Media Week.
According to the LoveWorld Nation, the purpose of the Social Media Week was to empower people to maximize the readily available technological tools for wealth creation, economic growth, career path interest and personal development in specific areas of interest.
The Social Media Week received praising words from Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, who called it “very powerful, enlightening and empowering.”
Pastor Chris teams up with several other ministers
Shortly after the Social Media Week ended, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome announced that August would be the Month of Recovery.
At the beginning of August, Lebanon, which has a big Christian community, was hit by a tragic disaster. A huge explosion took place at the port of Beirut, killing at least 190 people, injuring 6,5000 and leaving about 300,000 people homeless.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and the LoveWorld community immediately started praying for the recovery of Lebanon and its people.
He and Pastor Benny Hinn ended August with a five-day-long Praise-A-Thon with special guests like Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Dan Willis, Pastor James Payne and Dr. Richard Roberts.
In September, the Month of Wisdom, the LoveWorld Nation started building a LoveWorld Medical Center in Nigeria, and in October, the “Your LoveWorld with Pastor Chris” prayer series continued, while the second season of WordFest was initiated.
During the Month of Proclamation in October, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome continued his “Your LoveWorld with Pastor Chris” series.
An eventful last quarter
The Month of Proclamation also saw the commencement of WordFest 2.
WordFest was a special festival of meditation on God’s word, and the concept was that existing and new subscribers to the Pastor Chris Digital Library could get free access to divine messages from Pastor Chris Oyakhilome through the WordFest program.
Subscribers could watch, listen to and meditate on a specifically selected message every day. Each day had a new theme.
According to the LoveWorld Nation, WordFest’s purpose was to build up and strengthen the faith of God’s people during this time of adversity that the world is facing.
In November, the Month of Praise, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome invited thousands of people from all over the world to Nigeria to participate in several LoveWorld events.
Those included the International Pastors’ and Partners’ Conference, the International Media Connectors’ Conference, the LoveWorld Exhibition, the International Teens Pastors’ & Leaders’ Conference, the IPPC Presidential Awards and LIMA Awards.
On December 1st, Chris Oyakhilome hosted another Global Day of Prayer, and on December 7th, he celebrated his birthday.
Just a few days ago, his Christmas Eve Service took place.
