CU Hosts Kenneth Copeland, Creflo Dollar
Between May 16 and 18, 2007, Covenant University had the privilege of playing host to some of the greatest Christian leaders of our time, including of the Charismatic Worldwide Movement and Dr Creflo Dollar of the World Changers Church International, USA.
They were in the University for the just concluded ‘Open Heaven Conference’ hosted by the Chancellor of Covenant University and President of Living Faith Church, Dr David Oyedepo, held at Faith Tabernacle, Canaan Land, Ota.
During the visit, Covenant University community had an awesome experience, especially on the first day, when Dr Dollar addressed the University faculty, staff and students at the Chapel. In his teaching, titled, ‘How to Manage Life on Everyday Basis’, Dr Dollar who holds a PhD in Counseling, explained how one could achieve successful living by understanding life according to the word of God. He said one however need to balance his or her physical and intellectual development with the development of his or her spirit man in order to make impact. He urged the people to crave for power, which he gave its acronym P to stands for planning, O for organization, W for work, E for enthusiasm and R for reward.
Also at a farewell dinner organized for the guests, Kenneth Copeland, who is also a member of the Board of Regents of Oral Robert University, praised Covenant University for its achievements within the short period of its existence and commended the University for its corporate packaging, which he promised to market to his fellow Regents at ORU.
Their visit was very symbolic to the University’s vision of raising a new generation of leaders, especially considering the global impacts of these anointed men of God, who through their ministries have been mightily used by God to raise army of leaders across the continent of the world.
