Over 400 Fulani Christian converts were reportedly part of a 3-day Church conference in Plateau state – The converts were urged to preach the gospel of peace to their kindred in order to reduce the prevailing crises in the country – Seven of the Fulani people were ordained as Reverends Over 400 persons of Fulani ethnicity across the country have converted to Christianity, NAN reports. This was disclosed in a sermon by Reverend Copper Sebok of COCIN Church Panyam, Plateau state, on Sunday, April 30, at the end of a 3-day conference organised for all Fulani converts of all denominations nationwide. Rev. Sebok urged the converts to preach the gospel of peace to their kindred in order to reduce the prevailing crises in the country.
He said: “The conference is also a re-union service for all Fulani converts regardless of their denominations and to share experiences and encourage one another in the propagation of the gospel of peace. “It is a concept of COCIN 43 years ago, and to debunk the notion that Fulani’s are nomadic and can’t be reached with the gospel of Christ.’’ According to him, man must have compassion on the unsaved to draw them to Christ for eternal salvation. Rev. Sebok decried the level of crisis in Nigeria which usually resulted to loss of lives and property, adding that Nigerians must embrace peace for the progress and development of the nation. Speaking on behalf of the converts, Rev. Hassan Mohammed expressed gratitude to God for giving them a new lease of life as Christians.
He disclosed that the conference was an eye opener for them to go and proclaim the gospel not only to their kindred but to all nations. He said: “We have a total of seven Fulani people ordained Reverends beside other Pastors and Evangelists and we are doing our best to enlighten our brothers and sisters about Christianity.” R
