National President, The Apostolic Church Nigeria (TACN), Pastor (Dr) Sampson Igwe, has urged the Federal Government and the body of Christ to give youths a chance in the affairs of the nation.
Addressing the newsmen during his familiarisation tour of TACN areas in Ibadan zone, Igwe noted that a society without youth involvement would not achieve anything.
Speaking at the Gbagi branch of the church penultimate Saturday, he stated that youths were assets that should be harnessed and developed to serve as leaders for tomorrow.
Igwe urged churches, as the body of Christ, to care for its members spiritually, physically, materially and emotionally.
According to him, the church should be seen as home for all without any feeling of tribal superiority over others by any group.
Also, the National Vice-President, TACN, Pastor (Dr) Emmanuel Awojide, read through the history of the church which turned 100 years old last year.
He said the church started in July 1918 as a purely African indigenous church, popularly known as ‘Precious Stone Society.’
He added that the group was affiliated with an American Holiness Movement called Faith Tabernacle Congregation in 1923, while the present Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) reportedly broke away from the group in February 1940.
Awojide also expressed his gratitude to God over the steady growth of the church.
