“Bad leaders are bad examples; they spread immorality, destroy lives and harm the people they lead. When we don’t understand the purpose of power, we hoard and abuse it, oppressing those who have already been oppressed. The essence of leadership is service and power is not to be hoarded but shared.” convener and senior pastor of the church, Sam Adeyemi, affirms while speaking during the conference.
“Over the last seven years, God has renewed minds, restored hope, built lives and nations through the Excellence in Leadership Conference.
“It was an unusual gathering of practical teaching, capacity development and spiritual renewal for me. My results can never be the same,” said Tolu Oluwagbesan, one of the participants, while reiterating her uplifting experience after the conference.
