President/Vice Chancellor, Professor Ademola Tayo has charged the 10 graduates of the executive diploma in Church Administration to brace up for the task ahead.
The graduates represent the second batch of scholars who have completed their ministerial administrative programme run in Babcock University in collaboration with the Church Administrators of Nigeria, CASON.
In his address, Professor Tayo encouraged them to spur one another with good deeds and to spread the message of salvation through words and deeds.
“As you go, uphold the institutional mission and work as Christ’s ambassadors,” he added.
The President of CASON, Pastor Seyi Olademeji reminded the graduates that this event was a turning point in their ministerial journeys.
“What you have learned should be your new way of doing ministry,” he said. “I believe this programme is the beginning of the change that God is bringing to us in Africa.”
He also enjoined them to blend technology with the knowledge gained for the enrichment of the body of Christ and to become solution providers to Nigeria’s problems.
For Director of the Babcock Centre of Executive Development, Professor Titus Akintoye, the event is a celebration of the existing cordial relations between both institutions. He therefore urged the graduates to remain steadfast in all circumstances. He was represented by the BCED Coordinator, Dr. Chinedu Ahanaya.
