Come Sunday November 15th, 2015, the popular publisher of daily devotional booklet, Our Daily Manna, and General Overseer of Manna Prayer Mountain, Bishop (Dr.) Chris Kwakpovwe, would be a year older.
And to celebrate and honour the Ughelli, Delta State born preacher, different activities like visitation to Motherless Babies homes, free medical services to the aged have been lined-up ahead of the ceremony billed to hold on Saturday November 21st at Our Daily Manna headquarters in Lagos.
Bishop Kwakpovwe is a dynamic man of God with strong prophetic, healing, preaching and teaching ministries. Since he met the Lord and got born again on February 3rd 1976, as a student at the prestigious Government College Ughelli, Delta State of Nigeria, he’s been preaching the Word in creeks, villages and cities with signs following.
He is a qualified pharmacist (1983) from the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) in Nigeria. By the grace of God, he is the founder of the various MANNA PRAYER MOUNTAINS worldwide. Years ago, he served as an assisting founding pastor of the Chapel of Praise Church under Bishop Isaac Nwaoji for years! The Lord called him into full time Ministry in 1992, having combined pharmacy and Ministry for 9 years. He got his Ph.D. in Theology, in 1999 and also on Sunday December 16th 2001, he was awarded an honorary doctorate degree in theology by the Calvary Academy in collaboration with The Light House Christian University, Brooklyn, New York, USA.
He is the president, Board of governors of the Liberty Bible College International. Rev. (Dr.) Chris was the ex-president of the Nigerian Christian Corpers Fellowship (NCCF) in 1984 and has worked with many Christian bodies such as the Scripture Union, the Nigerian Fellowship of Evangelical Students (NIFES), the Christian Association of Nigeria, (CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).
He was the vice president of the PFN, Maryland, Ogudu and Ojota zone of Lagos State. He is a registered member of the International Charismatic Bible Ministries (ICBM) based in Tulsa Oklahoma in the USA. Rev. Dr. Chris is also the President and Founder of the Dream Centre (Nigeria) – a vision for widows, widowers, the emotionally bruised, divorces, drug addicts, ex-convicts, the sick and such alike. He is widely travelled, and is a regular speaker in Churches, University Campuses, Leadership Conferences, Seminars and Crusades.
He has a very strong burden to seeing a people raised by God to publicly depopulate hell, with a strong private and solid fellowship with God. Rev. Dr. Chris, an anointed writer, who has been through the crucible of life’s strong battles and afflictions, writes from a deep burden and experience that provokes daily compassion for the bruised (Luke 4:18)! He is a tried and tested man of God! In fact, he received the strong burden and this unique commission to, “write and liberate my people who are victims of life’s daily battles/bruises”, the day he wanted to commit suicide because of life battles!
Now, a strong motivational speaker, he believes that, failures and mistakes are the pillars of success! He believes that pain is the father of profit! He believes that delay is not denial because behind every glory, there is an untold story, sometimes of tears, painful waiting, determination and ridicule! He believes that the storms of life are inevitable, but there is a beautiful Rainbow attached to every ugly and raging storm! He strongly believes that tough times don’t last, but tough people do! He is raised and separated uniquely by heaven to let this generation know that adversities are not permitted to make men breakdown, but to break records!
A man with a unique heart of compassion and a strong vision born out of the deep furnace of affliction, he believes that toil (hard work), stubborn determination, daily solitude and prayers are the engine rooms of every true-life success story! He is happily married with children!
