Chris Oyakhilome and His Pursuit of Greatness

We’re living in a world that’s full of innovative technology. Unfortunately, most of this technology doesn’t give us any spiritual connection. We’re also living in a time of hardships. Senseless deaths and war seems to be the name of the game, but what really happens to us humans when after we take our last breath. This is where religion or spiritualism comes into the frame, and there is one place that demonstrates this perfectly.


The Christ Embassy in Lagos, Nigeria, is home to one of the world’s most prominent religious centers. It’s huge location hosts a teaching and healing ministry as it is a part of an enormous prayer network. The guy in charge here is Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, and he has revolutionized spiritual media.

The numbers are staggering especially coming from such humble beginnings. The embassy’s “Night of Bliss” conference is more like a grand celebration in a sense. The grand event takes place in Johannesburg, South Africa at the FNB Stadium. This revival celebrates and teaches the passion of Christ and is broadcasted to millions of households around the globe.
