While also appreciating the Diocesan Bishop of Igbomina West, Right Reverend Olajide Adebayo, and the church for the honour bestowed on him, Dr Ademowo described the Adebayos as goal getters and urged the church to offer them maximum support in their quest to take the church to higher heights.
The cleric also urged clerics to see their stations as their Jerusalem and endeavor to do something memorable.
In his sermon, the Arch Bishop of Kwara Province and Bishop of the Diocese of Igbomina, the Most Reverend Michael Akinyemi, said with the project, the Diocesan Bishop and the church of God has made history.
He stated that the chapel is hallowed for praise, giving, obedience and to keep the word of God alive. He also called on all Christian faithful to ensure they make impact wherever they are towards the propagation of the gospel.
