Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has urged the Church to engage more in soul-winning programmes in order to produce change agents in the society.
The Governor made the call on Wednesday in Asaba when the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministry, Apostle Johnson Suleiman, visited him.
He said the world was witnessing challenges, prompting the need for more religious crusades to win souls who would contribute to rebirth in the country.
The Governor noted that the global challenges had impacted on Nigeria as a nation and called on the church to continue to pray for the nation and keep hope alive.
Governor Okowa said it was a thing of joy that the prayers said at crusades had not only won souls, but touched the lands spiritually and positively, pointing out that prayer had helped to engender peace in Delta state and would be sustained because the grace of God was needed for things to continue to work for the state and the people.
He said government would continue to diligently serve the people and would not be distracted in delivering its electoral promises.
The Governor commended Apostle Suleiman for choosing Asaba for his crusade, saying that such events and other church programmes had been of great benefit to the state.
Earlier, Apostle Suleiman said he was in Asaba for a crusade and thanked the Governor for the enabling environment which had made it possible for such activities to take place.
He described the Governor as a Godly man who had provided purposeful leadership in the state.
