- VP Osinbajo noted that Pastor Dare was the face of young preachers committed to preaching the gospel
Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo has declared that Late Pastor Dare Adeboye represented the future of Christian ministry with his commitment to preaching the gospel.
The vice president made the comment in a tribute to the young pastor when he attended the Service of Songs celebrating Pastor Dare.
Osinbajo's tribute was read at the event, although the vice president was in attendance at the event alongside his wife, Mr. Dolapo Osinbajo.
Describing the attributes of Pastor Dare, the vice president stated that:
“He knew what was important to do and to emphasize and he worked very hard, everywhere, with the zeal and speed of one who knew that we don’t have all day.
“He understood the dynamics and urgency of reaching young people with the gospel, especially because of their fundamental role in the sustainable growth of the church of God.”
According to the vice president, Pastor Dare was in many ways, a representative of the future of Christian ministry,
“A new generation birthed in a period of great turbulence in ideas and doctrines, a surfeit of distractions, but committed to ensuring that the unvarnished gospel is preached to that generation.”
He further went on to say that despite the late pastor’s position of privilege,
“He was deeply and unpretentiously respectful, not just of elders and those in authority, but of everyone, even his subordinates.”
Speaking on his personality, Prof Osinbajo noted that:
“Everyone has a story to tell of Dare’s warmth, compassion, friendliness and his open displays of affection for others.”
Earlier, Temiloluwa, the wife of the late Pastor Dare, said her husband was not afraid of death, adding that she was sure he was already in heaven.
According to Temiloluwa, her husband told her before his death that if he died, he knew he was fulfilled because he had done what the Lord asked him to do on earth.
n a related development, the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Prophet TB Joshua, has suggested that God’s time played a role in the sudden demise of Pastor Dare.
The cleric made the suggestion on Friday, May 7, in a condolence message to the Adeboye family published on the Facebook post of his ministry, adding that what matters is not how long people live but how well.
