WINNERS CHAPEL MARKS 30TH ANNIVERSARY
THE weeklong celebrations marking the 30th anniversary of the Living Faith Church also known as Winners Chapel which began on Monday, comes to an end today at the Faith Taber-nacle, at the sprawling Canaanland in Ota, Ogun State.
Declaring the event open on Monday, the presiding bishop of Winners Chapel, Dr. David Oyed-epo distanced himself from any achievers mentality, giving all the glory to God Almighty for the awesome acts in the commission.
According to him, the 30th anniversary celebration has been decentralised to give every church in the network the freedom to enjoy the season as they deem fit, unlike the previous ones where everyone converged in Canaanland.
