Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is one of the most vibrant, dynamic and successful ministers of the gospel Nigeria has ever produced. 30 years ago he began what would be a global ministry with a footprint on every continent. Christ Embassy International, the ministry started by Pastor Chris, is now a huge network of churches and campus fellowships. As the head of this ministry, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is the leader of one of the largest congregations in the world. You can get a glimpse of just how expansive the church is during the Higher Life Conference and Night of Bliss crusades when more than three million souls gather to hear the Word of God and experience the power of the Holy Spirit. Again the Christ Embassy pastor runs a Healing School which has seen attendees from all over the globe come away with exciting testimonies of the miraculous power of God at work in their lives such that even those present need faith to believe the things taking place right in front of their eyes. The teaching ministry of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome also extends to the International School of Ministry where ministers of the gospel are rejuvenated and refocused through the word and the spirit.
Besides guiding the congregations in Christ Embassy Lagos, Nigeria and other parts of the world, the pastor also offers spiritual nourishment through the Rhapsody of Realities booklet. This best-selling Bible study guide/devotional is read by millions around the world as every monthly edition is published , giving them inspiration and a sense of purpose. The book, authored by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, is currently available in 642 languages including French, Italian, German, Russian, Mandarin, Myanmar, Afrikaans, Swahili and Arabic. Messenger Angel, as this booklet is affectionately known is still being translated into more languages in a bid to reach the nook and cranny of the world with the message of faith, hope and love captured so eloquently in the daily devotional guide.
Christ Embassy International also has a very active media arm which enables people of all cultures to receive the ministry of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome right from the comfort of their homes. Every week viewers are encouraged and uplifted as they listen to the teachings broadcast on so many local stations that most have lost count. One of the programs, aptly titled “Pastor Chris Teaching” opens hearts and minds to the simplistic many sided wisdom of God’s word. Another favorite TV program is ‘Atmosphere of Miracles’. Aside the several local TV stations, these programs also air on major networks in Africa, the US and the UK.
