Mr. Israel Adewole, a renowned dramatist of the Mount Zion Faith Ministry, in an interview with Charles Akinsete, speaks on new trends and his personal experience in the christian drama ministry.

You have performed in many Mount Zion Films, and have taken part in some of the lead roles. Can you share your experience in the ministry?

Taking part in Mount Zion films has been as a result of the grace of God. I never knew how to act until the Lord fished me out and then gave me the call into drama ministry.

God has been so faithful. I thank God for the period I have spent in Mount Zion Faith Ministry and for the life of my father in the Lord, the President of Mount Zion Faith Ministry, Evangelist Mike Bamiloye. He has been a good master and leader.

I give God the praise for the opportunity he has given me to serve in his vineyard. Concerning my roles in Mount Zion films, my performance has been determined by the grace of God and the influence of the Holy Spirit upon my life.

The scripts are written by Evangelist Bamiloye. He determines who performs a certain role and whenever he calls on me for a certain role, I see it as a privilege and I, through the grace of God, try to give my best.

In the film, The gods Are Dead, for example, you acted as the chief priest. How do you balance your christian beliefs and these roles, which seem contrary to what you preach?
In the ministry of drama, we are called to serve. As Paul says,” I need to become all things that I may save some.” So, when I was given the role of the chief priest, I saw it as a great challenge because it is quite contrary to my personal behaviour.

But through prayer, God gave me the instinct and the inspiration to play that role. It was a great challenge to me but I thank God. As soon as I put on the costume, I had the courage and enthusiasm to play out the role. Above all, the most important thing is that lives were touched by the film. We give glory to God!

What are the new trends in Mount Zion Faith Ministry?
The ministry has begun to multiply especially through our Christian drama. But it got to another level in the last few months, when the Lord gave my wife and I another assignment in the drama ministry that we should explore the area of french mission drama ministry.

On the 12th of June, the President, Evangelist Bamiloye, commissioned my wife and I and prayed for us in front of other drama ministers. He sent us off for the mission. With that, we would be having our own production, but not in English, but in French language.

But for now, we are still learning french. We are still undergraduates. We actually started learning the language in 2001. Because of this, for now, what we would do is to subtitle our films in french.

Later on, our vision is to eventually have our films, not just translated into french but performed and produced in the language so that we would be able to communicate the gospel of Christ in these francophone countries. We are still operating from Ibadan here.

Which of the francophone countries would you start with?
We are starting with Benin Republic and Togo. Very soon, we would extend, by the grace of God, to other french speaking countries in Africa.

What exactly is your position in Mount Zion faith ministry?
By the grace of God, I’m the Vice President of the ministry. My job is to assist our leader, Evangelist Bamiloye. Our stage drama is on hold now but I’s also the director of the stage drama.

So you are the President of the new mission?
I am just the co-ordinator. I was chosen by God though our leader, Evangelist Bamiloye, like I said, we are not travelling anywhere now. We would be operating from Ibadan, Nigeria.

What message do you have for your teeming admirers?
I really thank God for what he has been doing in my life and the ministry. We are still in the ministry. We are still in the calling. The new calling God has given to us is to actually propagate the gospel more.

He is the one who has called on us to do this work. So, all glory be to Him.

Thank you for your comment Ugonna. yes, the films are being acted by non professionals, agreed. But we are not resting on our oars, we are also pressing forward. we promise to keep up the pace. The major fact is that people are being blessed watching the movies. The purpose is therefore being achieved. Keep praying for us however. God bless you.

The Messages are Divine
Gbenga Ayodele | 11/8/2009 10:03:21 PM
There is absolutely nothing unprofessional in all the films produced by Mount Zion Ministry. The main objective of all the films is to draw people to God. Human beings generally tend not to realize that the essence of their creation is simply to serve the creator-God. The themes of all the films can simply be put as "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all other things shall be added unto thee." It is only those that has the eyes that can actually see- I mean spiritual eyes. To have this eyes is only by the divine grace of God almighty and that is what we should continually seek in order to be blessed. When we talk of blessing again, we are talking of the coming to life of the gift that God has posited in each of His human creation. It is not necessarily money or material gifts as most churches are propagating thse days. Mount Zion Ministry has asked for God's divine grace and God has endowed them the gift, and the light has been caused to shine in them through the propagation of God's gospel via film productions which professionalism is unparalleled. If I may digress a bit, another film productions in the country that teaches towards human progress are those of Mainframe by Tunde Kelani. You can be of use or service in God's vineyard via several medium. The essential is that you must, we must all compulsorily be of service to God if we dont want to perish in hell. And we must seek the face of God, the Kingdom of God so that we can arise and shine as Munt Zion has arised and are shining. My prayer is that they will continue to shine and many more will be brought to God through the ministry that God has assigned them. I also pray for my Sisters and brothers who commented above that God will stir the spirit of knowledge and wisdom in them so they can see and understand that these films by Mount Zion are not of the world, they are divine and are meant to bring the lost sheep back to their owner-God. May God bless Mount Zion and May God bless us all.

how do i join Mount Zion Movie
BUORO OMOH TEMITOPE | 11/12/2009 4:03:07 AM
Sir, I have been looking for an opportunity like this. i.e where I can make inquiries on the Mount Zion movie industry. I strongly believe that God endows each individual with different gifts and talents in order to work for him{GOD}. It is rightly stated in the Bible "for thou has created all things and for thy pleasure, they are and were created". And i know that i am gifted in this area{acting}. As such, i will want nothing less than to use my talent for my creator and propagate the gospel through this media, in order to bring lost sheep to the fold as we were saved to save others. sir, from my inquiries, i learnt that Mount Zion have their office at Ibadan, Oyo state. later, i was told they have moved to Osogbo, Osun state. I went on line but did not get much. But as God will have it this morning, i came across this medium. Sir, i do not know if this is an avenue to be making enquiries on auditions and all but i would be most grateful if I am replied as soon as possible. Just in case this is not a proper medium, here is my email address: {omo4all2001@yahoo.co.uk.} The bottom line is: I want to work with the mount Zion Film industry but do not know how to go about it. Thanks and God Bless.
