Excellence in ministry is not what you see in Pastor Chris' Christ Embassy - Charles Awuzie Reveals

Charles Awuzie is a Cyber-Security Expert, CEO of Gemsbok Group, who lives in South Africa. He took to his verified Facebook page, to redefine excellence in ministry and also claimed that, Pastor Chris or Pastor Biodun's ministry.

Re-Definining Excellence in Ministry:

If what you call EXCELLENCE in ministry is what you see in Biodun's COZA or Pastor Chris Oyakhilome's Christ Embassy, then you lack knowledge of what truly is excellence in ministry.

The first time the Bible painted a picture of an excellent ministry, it wasn't talking about Gucci cloths and posh auditorium. Let's read Hebrews 8:6 - 8 (NKJV) "But now He has obtained a more EXCELLENT MINISTRY, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises. For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a New covenant... "

Did you notice that the excellence in ministry is actually the ministry of the NEW Covenant? Not ministry of Gucci or Rolls-Royce. 

So, if a pastor is not preaching and teaching the new covenant, which is anchored on the finished work of Christ, they don't have an excellent ministry and it doesn't matter if they carry their Bible in a Louis Vuitton briefcase.

Some of you pastors are busy raising funds from pulpit to pulpit, because you want to achieve what your fathers called Excellence in Ministry - beautiful stage, more comfortable chairs, new designer suits, bigger cars, air conditioned auditorium and smart looking ushers. 

That's what we thwarted excellence in ministry to mean. We didn't take time to differentiate between Excellence in the Secular world, and excellence in ministry. Even in the secular world, excellence means doing a clean job at your work place - not wearing Versace to your workplace.

May God reform our deformed mindsets in Jesus name. Remember, excellence in ministry has to do with the ministry of the finished work of Christ.
