It was an atmosphere of joy at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) on Sunday, June 12 as the church marked the second posthumous birthday of its founder Prophet TB Joshua.
The televangelist died on June 5, 2021, a week to his 58th birthday.
Bishop Trevor Williamson from Bahamas was also at the church to celebrate Joshua. He joined in the cutting of the birthday cake alongside Joshua’s children and SCOAN evangelists Chisom, James, Ope among others.
In a Facebook post, the church vowed to continue celebrating Joshua and his legacy.
The posthumous birthday celebration came one week after the church held a memorial service to mark the first anniversary of Joshua’s death.
When Joshua’s widow and SCOAN leader Pastor Evelyn joined congregants for the prayer line and anointing water ministration session, she first thanked people all over world for their outpouring of love during the anniversary on June 5.
She said, “I and the entire Synagogue family say, ‘God bless you'”.
Evelyn added, “We will continue to celebrate Prophet TB Joshua and all he stood for.”
Many of Joshua’s mentees and disciples, including Emmanuel TV partners, were present at the Lagos-based church on June 5 for the anniversary of the man known for charity and miracles.
As part of the celebratory mood on Joshua’s posthumous birthday, Pastor Evelyn announced the gifts of DVDs and stickers for all congregants.
Emmanuel TV Choir led the congregants in worship to God for the life of Joshua.
Earlier, Evangelist Ope took a sermon titled ‘The Power of Love,’ reading from 1 John 4:7-8.
