Omega Power Ministries has rehabilitated some repentant criminals in
Rivers State with various skills acquisition who gave their lives to
Christ sometime ago in the church.
The repentant criminals who were into different crimes such as
kidnapping, cultism, armed robbery among others were trained by the
church to acquire free skills in Oil and Gas, Marine Construction,
Paint Making, and others.
Speaking during an inspection tour to the free training centre of OPM
at Elekahia, Port Harcourt, the State capital, the Church General
Overseer and Founder, Apostle Chibuzor Gift Chinyere advised other
churches in the country to establish more free skills acquisition
centres adding that such gesture would help to reduce crime and
criminality in the society.
Apostle Chinyere warned church Pastors that are acquiring property for
themselves with church money to stop the act and invest in the
capacity development of the masses.
He said ‘’ everything you see here is from the tithes and offerings of
OPM and God has been faithful. We made it open. There are many people
that are not members of OPM but are being trained free of charge by
the church. We are doing this for heaven. They are not only learning
these skills but we are also helping them to go to heaven. I believe
that the knowledge you are getting here, God will use it to enlarge
‘’ There are soldiers of Doctor Jesus here. By the grace of God, some
of them surrender their guns and repented in the church. We provided
free accommodations, feeding, academic scholarship for their children,
bankrolled their weddings and some of them who want to be Pastors are
in bible college.
‘’Church Pastors should stop being greedy. Rather than using church
money to buy property for themselves, they should use the money to
empower the poor.’’
When asked by newsmen concerning the upgrading of facilities at the
free training centre, the General Overseer said the church has
purchased 149 plots of land in Port Harcourt to build OPM free
technical college with modern facilities from overseas as well as a
free secondary school.
Apostle Chinyere promised the trainees of job provision as soon as
they graduated as he revealed a communication he had established with
some captains of industry to employ them.
While thanking the Man of God for the gesture, the coordinator and
ex-militant of the repentant criminals, David Okoro said God used OPM
to bring him and others out of crime that almost wasted their lives.
Okoro said today, he is happily married and doing well because of the
intervention of Apostle Chinyere upon his life.
He said the Church did not only empowered them but also gave them free
accommodation, feeding and bankrolled their weddings.
The free skills acquisition centre is purely interdenominational and
has been in existence for the past five years.
