The morning session began with a time of praise, worship and prayers. Thereafter the Global Youth Leader’s Forum Coordinator, Pastor Rhoda Olusina, gave her welcome address. The campers then had an Orientation Brief with the Camp Commandant, the Esteemed Pastor Dupe Isesele, detailing them on what their experience on camp would be and how they ought to comport themselves with good Christian conduct. The youth were then divided into teams and introduced to their team leaders.

After the briefing, they had an outing to the Nelson Mandela Square and also visited the mall for shopping.

The evening session began with moments of worship, along with many special presentations in music and dance from representatives of various countries.

The highly esteemed Rev. Tom Amenkhienan, BLW Director of Church Ministry, was the guest speaker at the session. He welcomed the youth to the program and encouraged them saying, “There’s something special about you being here, because you're special. You’re going to have an impactful, life-transforming experience. Open your spirit and receive everything that God is depositing inside you and you’ll turn out champions for life.”

He went on to exhort the youth, teaching them on a message he titled, ‘Your Destiny in God’. He explained that there are two kinds of destinies: the natural destiny which is controlled by environment, economy and other such factors, and the divine destiny which a person enters into once they become born again. “Your destiny will determine your destination,” said Rev. Tom. He expatiated that divine destiny entails unveiling God’s love, His Word and His glory to all men. “You’re God’s hope, His voice and His medium of expression in your world; that’s why you can’t keep quiet,” he admonished the youth.

Indeed, their destinies are being shaped for the glory of God, and these young ones are being transformed by the Word of God.


Day 3 of the 2017 International Easter Youth Camp was an even more glorious time; after a day filled with wonderful activities and visits to the Lion & Rhino Park and Gold Reef City, the delegates arrived at the evening session with so much enthusiasm for a time of spiritual enlightenment and insight.

Sharing her experience thus far, Barbara from Switzerland said, “My experience at the Youth Camp has been great and full of glory. The teachings have been amazing; my heart has been touched. Thank you, Pastor Chris, for putting the Word in us.”

The message for the day was delivered by the Global Youth Leaders’ Forum Coordinator, Pastor Rhoda Olusina. She exhorted the youth about their calling to fulfill God’s dream, which is for all men to be saved. Expatiating, she urged them to use every opportunity to propagate the Gospel, saying, “You are the preacher to your world. God's desire is for all men to be saved, you have been called to fulfill God's dream. You're the only one who can reach out to the people in your world. Don't keep quiet –all the Holy Spirit wants is for you to open your mouth and let Him fill it with life-giving words.”

The delegates also spent time to pray for their countries and the prevalence of the Gospel in their nations, and they also prayed about the final healing service of the Autumn Session.

Indeed, the truth is marching on, and these youth are soldiers-in-training for the advancement of the God’s Kingdom.


Easter Sunday was indeed a different sort of encounter for the delegates as they enjoyed the rare privilege to attend the third healing service with Pastor Chris. Their expectation for a glorious time in God’s presence was not cut short as they experienced a display of the supernatural when the man of God ministered to the sick. They witnessed several proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Savior of their lives. Joy filled their hearts as the man of God specially recognized all delegates at the Easter Youth Camp from various nations around the world, amidst cheers and applause.What a glorious and unforgettable experience it was!

Delegates at the 2017 International Easter Youth Camp had their first exclusive meeting with the man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, on Monday evening. The session began with moments of prayer, praise and worship. The attendees were blessed with special presentations from different countries. They were motivated to do more for the Kingdom of God as they listened to fellow delegates share their testimonies of advancing the Gospel in their respective regions and countries despite oppositions.

Moments of worship spurred the young people to revel in the glory of God’s presence. It was in this atmosphere of reverence and awe that the man of God, Pastor Chris, entered the arena. The delegates received insight and increased knowledge as the man of God answered questions that had hitherto burned in their hearts.

In closing, Pastor Chris asked the youth to find the answers to the following questions, in readiness for the next day’s session: Who is the Holy Spirit? Where did He come from? What’s the difference between the first man and the new creation? What are the signs of the return of Christ? How will you impact your generation?

Stressing the importance of the last question, he said, “You’ve got to make a decision that your life is for the glory of God. No matter what you do, do it for the Lord. There's something supernatural inside us, and we’ve got to learn how to use it.

The evening ended on a high note, and the youth departed with heightened expectations.


The delegates testified to having enjoyed a marvelous time at the 2017 IEYC. From the first day of Camp, they received enlightenment and inspiration from the Word. Already, many are set to return to their countries and take the land with renewed fervency.

The day began with Bible study classes, followed by a morning session that was packed with many exciting segments, including a talk show that focused on informing the youth about the Global Youth Leaders' Forum (GYLF) and how to take advantage of the myriad of opportunities for global impact.

In his rousing message, Pastor BiodunLawal – Assistant Secretary General of Believers’ Loveworld Incorporated and Director of Teens’ Ministry, talked about the ‘Activist Minister’. He told the youth, “Let your life be for the Gospel – fight for it. God is raising soldiers, who will sacrifice their life for it and will not accept anything but the Lordship of Jesus in their locality. You are His weapon of war. When you get back, fight that the Name of Jesus should be known where you are. Fight for the Gospel.”

The evening session commenced with the youth glorifying God with open hearts and lifted hands.There were several talk shows, including a GYLF talk show on strategies for more impact. In a discussion about their experience at the Camp thus far, one of the delegates said, "As much as I love it here, I can't wait to go back and start doing what God has created us to do. I look forward to the testimonies."

The youth were also ministered to in dance, song and Spoken Word by delegates from Venezuela, Botswana, Norway, South Pacific, United Kingdom, El Salvador, Syria and Nigeria.

Expectant for increase in knowledge, the delegates glorified the Name of the Lord and were deep in worship when Pastor Chris arrived for the meeting. He exhorted the youth on the importance of True Worship. “Worshipping God with songs of praise and thanksgiving is very important to Him. So, when you get opportunities to do it, take it seriously, because big things happen when you worship.”

Explaining the Scripture in John 4:23, he said, “You can’t worship God in your own way. Jesus said ‘in spirit and in truth’. He meant that you worship Him from your spirit and based on the Word of God.”

The man of God again gave the youth delegates the opportunity to ask questions, and he answered each one with truths from the Bible, encouraging them to give attention to God’s Word. He also took time to specially minister to delegates who had health challenges in their bodies.


Things were taken up a notch on the final day of the 2017 International Easter Youth Camp with Pastor Chris, as the delegates woke up to a morning drill, during which their physical endurance was tested and pushed.

The morning session featured special presentations from representatives of various countries. The delegates sang, danced and clapped, cheering their peers on during the ministrations.

The campers had a special class with Pastor Deola Phillips, Director of the Healing School & ISM, where she taught them about being heroes for Christ, emphasizing that the purpose of the Christian is to demonstrate the praises of God to their world, and that every child of God has a hero inside. “The world needs heroes and role models,” she said. She also highlighted four factors for unlocking the hero within: desire, dedication, determination and discipline.

Lastly, she admonished the youth delegates to lead by following the right role models. Expatiating the Scripture in Philippians 4:9, she said, “The first way to follow somebody is to do what he has taught you. After being at the Camp, you should go back and do the things you’ve learnt – follow through the message.”

The morning session ended with the youth praying concerning their desires for God and the readiness of their mission fields after they return to their respective countries. Afterwards, the campers proceeded to other activities: They had an exciting and fun-filled afternoon with a Boat cruise and Canoe paddling.

The Final Session of the 2017 IEYC with Pastor Chris

The concluding session of the 2017 International Easter Youth Camp was a glorious and remarkable encounter. Excited and looking forward to receiving all that the Spirit of God had in store for them, the delegates arrived for the meeting.

With songs of praise on every lip, the meeting commenced in an atmosphere of worship and reverence. During one of the inspiring talk shows, several youth motivated their co-delegates by unveiling their plans for action once they return home from the IEYC. A youth from Trinidad & Tobago said, “I’ll make sure that I win at least one soul every day.”

The Grand finale for the 'Bible Man' competition and other special presentations from different countries also took place during the session.

The man of God, Pastor Chris, gave an extensive discourse on demons and other forces of evil in the world, as well as their spiritual activities. Explaining the import of this knowledge, he told the youth that, “We've got to preach the Gospel, now more than ever. We can't just be quiet, because there's no other Name by which men can be saved.”

Charging the youth to remember who they are, he said, “Preach the Gospel fearlessly. Like David and Goliath, it doesn't matter how small you are or how big the enemy is, we will always win. Believe in who you are, who God has made you. Be the David to your generation.”

Afterwards, Pastor Chris ministered specially to delegates who had health challenges, and then proceeded to impart the youth delegates in various categories with a special grace, equipping them for this new level of their walk as ministers of the Gospel.

The man of God brought the program to a close as he pronounced blessings upon the congregation, prophesying that each of the youth delegates will make great impact for the Gospel and shake the world.

It was a beautiful sight to behold; surely, these youth campers will never be the same again. They are afire and are full of divine energy to preach the Gospel like never before. Glory to God!
