Founder of Rehoboth Christian Church in Atlanta, USA, Pastor Monica Pinnock, has urged Church leaders in Nigeria to desist from misleading their members but rather lead them in the path of righteousness.
Pinnock said this during a missionary tour of the country which included a two day leadership summit hosted by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Mosan Okunola, Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Lagos state.
Speaking on the characteristics of a true leader, she highlighted holiness, humility, honesty, cheerfulness, thoughtfulness, ability to teach, fairness and justice as part of the necessities.
“I want to encourage them to preach the truth to tell the people about the love of Jesus Christ, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and let the people of Christ know that without Christ there is no other way. Jesus Christ is the way. Nigerian leaders should turn the people’s heart to Christ and let them understand that there is only one God.
“They should let the people look to Christ more than they look to us and let them turn to Jesus for all their needs. If the nations are led by unrighteous men the nation will perish. What Nigeria and all nations need at this time is to pray for God to raise righteous men to lead the people” Pinnock said.
