Dr Paul Enenche, the Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Abuja, has inaugurated a half-kilometer road constructed by the church in Karu-Jikwoyi District of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Enenche, while inaugurating the road, urged Nigerians to always dedicate themselves to the service of God and humanity and make a difference by giving back to the society.
“This is what the church is all about. Please, do likewise, start from somewhere, you might not commission a road, do the little that you can.
“The major assignment of leadership is the welfare of the people and I believe as we look more into the welfare of the people,we will hello to better their lives,” he said.
He said that is the reason the church has a permanent desk where it reaches out to people on a monthly bases by empowering them to do lots of things, such as trading and skilled work, accommodation issues and lots more.
Enenche, who is a medical doctor turned pastor, added that on a quarterly basis, the church does mega outreaches to the people in the areas of renovation of schools and donation of electricity transformers.
Pastor Yakubu Usman, the Resident Pastor in the area, corroborated the statement of Enenche, stressing that, “The gospel is unto good works, we are the salt of the earth, and a city set upon the hill cannot be hidden.
”So, this work is not to prove a point but a social responsibility of the church to alleviate and to help humanity, which is what the church is all about.”
Also speaking at the event, the Etsu of Karu, Bawa Jatta, who expressed joy, appreciated the church for the successful completion and commissioning of the road.
The traditional ruler said: “The church has deemed it fit to show love to this community. We will always keep the road clean.
“We don’t expect the senior pastor to maintain the road for us. He has played his part. It is our responsibility to maintain it.
“I am very glad and excited for this show of love, thank you Dr Paul Enenche,” he said.
The Etsu Karu called on highly placed persons in the country and corporate organizations to emulate the church by complimenting government efforts towards community development.
He said that before the road’s construction by the church, the road was a huge burden for motorists and prayed that God would reward it for its gestures.
On his part, General Chris Garuba, rtd. a former military governor of Bauchi State, commended the church for setting the pace for others to emulate.
He said that apart from winning souls, the church was moving in other areas of social responsibility, which was hardly seen before.
Also commenting, Rep. John Dyegh, a member of the National Assembly representing Gboko/Taka Federal c
Constituency, lauded the Dunamis church for its contribution to various communities.
“This is not the first time roads are constructed and commissioned by the church. I have lost count. I have seen transformers being given to communities. I have seen schools being built and many more.And I pray for much more to come,” he said.
A motorist, Mr Alex Bako, said “It is a laudable project and it is going to be beneficial to all and sundry, especially the immediate community in which the church operates.
“Dunamis Church has always contributed positively to the nation, I call on God to bless the church and provide for it to do more.”
Simon Nehemiah, a resident of the community said the project has changed the face of the area, adding that the area was now looking like the city.
He added that the community before now was very dusty, especially during the harmattan and muddy during rainy season.
