Chris Okotie is 58 : Resounding applause for dandy pastor

Reverend Christopher Oghenebrorie Okotie, the shepherd of Household of God in Oregun, Ikeja (Lagos), is 58 today (Thursday, June 16, 2016), and those who love the dandy pastor are serenading him in all ways they can.

Social media is awash with felicitation for the lawyer and former pop singer whose mastery of the English language titillates to no end.
Here are some of the good will messages…

Chris Okotie on my mind. This might sound a bit odd, I mean, what business do I have saying I’ve got a guy on my mind. Maybe it’s because today is his birthday and that he has been my friend of about 35 years and my pastor for the last 24 years. It could also be because he has on more than one occasion come through for me when no one else was there for me. Could it be because his erudite articulation of biblical eschatology has enriched my life beyond measure. Maybe it’s because he is a good looking cool dude.

I suspect that’s it’s not for any one of the mentioned reasons on their own, but because of all the reasons mentioned together. The multi dimensional impact of this man on my life is enough reason for me to glorify God, for bestowing such a blessing to this generation. I count myself blessed to be associated with this enigmatic personality and for the privilege of being able to call him my friend.

I love him without any apology. I’ve followed his ministry passionately for over 20 years. His humility humbles me, and his desire for excellence has propelled my zeal to go for the best. Nigeria is yet to comprehend who this man is. He is a God sent “man” to our generation. Friends, pls help me to celebrate my MENTOR, Rev. Chris Okotie. Today is his birthday. Happy Birthday Rev. Chris.

A solid foundation of anything determines the span of its existence. Pastor Chris you have indeed influenced my life in many areas. Everything I do is stitched to your point blank teachings from the scriptures. Thank you- HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

This is the man who made me fall in love with God’s word. He taught me everything I know about Grace and why I should pursue excellence when serving God. My life story will not be complete without several chapters dedicated to Reverend Chris Okotie. More than anyone, you have shown me that though imperfect and full of frailty, humans can do tremendous work for God.

Happy birthday sir!
