SACEM Motto: “Revive Thy work oh Lord” Habakkuk 3 vs. 2

BACKGROUND: SACEM - A SPIRITUAL MUSTARD SEED

“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear” - Hebrews 11: 3, and “This is the LORD’S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes” - Psalm 118: 23.        

The manifestation of the Sacred Evangelistic Ministry popularly called by its acronym SACEM in physical realm was borne out of the great commissioning of our Lord Jesus Christ, the captain of our salvation who commanded that we should go out and make disciples for Him. Consequently, Jesus Christ had planted in the minds of the youths of the District the diverse ways of promoting evangelism based on the discussions in times past. While the spirit of God constantly wanted Senior Apostle Oluwasola Oyewole to spear head the establishment of such an evangelism driven body, he looked forward to seeing somebody who will do it. He always complained to the Holy Spirit like Gideon did in the Holy Bible.

The first District Harvest Thanksgiving Service under the Chairmanship of Most Special Apostle Bola Odubela, now a Superintendent Apostle, created an everlasting impression on the mind of Senior Apostle Oluwasola Oyewole. The revival aspect of the programme was anchored by the General Superintendent of the Sacred Cherubim and Seraphim Church of Nigeria and Overseas, His Eminence Most Elder Apostle Prophet (Dr.) Solomon Adegboyega Alao, JP (Baba Alakoso Imole II). It was an open air crusade. Although Senior Apostle Oyewole was elated, his spirit was troubled by the fact that by the following year the open air crusade could not continue due to some constraints.  

Consequent upon the ministration of Senior Apostle Oyewole at the three (3) days revival programme of L.D.C.C Agege Harvest (tagged “God of all possibilities”) from 6th - 8th August, 2004 he deliberated with Pastor Prince Kosygin Oluwole Adetule and Prophet Taiwo Adeleke on how the youths can move evangelism forward in L.D.C.C Agege.  

On Sunday 10th August, 2004 which marked the grand finale of the District Harvest, the Preacher of the day and Patron of the Sacred C&S Church, Orisun-Ayo Model Parish, Alimosho, Most Special Apostle E.O. Oyeneyin (now a Senior Superintendent Apostle) spoke on the need for members to give their money and time for the promotion of evangelism in our Church. Immediately after the thanksgiving service, Evangelist Yemi Oguntuga conferred with Senior Apostle Oyewole on what could be done to light the fire of evangelism which was becoming dim in L.D.C.C. Agege. Together with Evangelist Bola Akindele, the three individuals deliberated on a plan of action. A meeting was scheduled for Tuesday 12th August, 2004 at the Sacred C&S Church, El-Bethel Shiloh Cathedral, Agege (State HQ.). Some other youths across the district, including Pastor Kayode David, Pastor Shola Bankole (then Co-ordinator General of the Central Youth Fellowship LDCC Agege), Prophet SOS Akintola, Prophet Taiwo Adeleke etc., attended this meeting.

By the 19th of August, 2004 the body had contacted some Elders in the District Church Council to seek their blessing. Those that were contacted were the Chairman of L.D.C.C. Agege - His Lordship Superintendent Apostle Pro. J.A. Oguntuga JP (now Senior Elder Apostle); His Lordship Senior Superintendent Apostle (Dr.) T.A. Akindele JP (later elevated to the position of Elder Apostle) - Minister-in-Charge of Sacred C&S Church, El-Bethel Shiloh Cathedral, Agege (State HQ.); and the Co-ordinator of the District Council - Senior Superintendent Apostle T. Ogunmesa. The Elders were so happy with the conception of the body and assisted in its safe delivery. The body was unanimously approved at the general meeting of L.D.C.C. Agege on 23rd August, 2004.  

In a meeting at Shiloh Mercy Land (1, Ojekunle Street, Amoo, Agege) the body was christened Sacred Evangelistic Ministry (SACEM) by Senior Apostle Oluwasola Oyewole out of the suggestion made by Pastor Kayode David that the body be known as Sacred C&S Evangelistic Squad. Three officers were later appointed by members to manage the ministry. They were Bro. Abraham Oluwasola Oyewole who later adopted the title “Christ Chief Messenger” instead of “President”, Bro. Bola Akindele - General Secretary, and Bro. Shola Bankole - Treasurer.  

To God who has sustained the body and made it to flourish is the Glory. Kudos must be given to all Ministers-in-Charge, all Life Partners, Partners with Christ, the entire members of L.D.C.C. Agege, Guest Ministers who had honoured our invitation in times past and others too numerous to mention. The contributions of the Chairman Evangelical Committee of the C&S Unification Church of Nigeria & Overseas, Special Apostle Akin Owolabi (now the Secretary General) is quite commendable and appreciated. The sacrifice and commitment of members have also helped to sustain the body. 

As at today, SACEM has organized numerous zonal revivals, open air crusades and participated in numerous evangelical programmes within and outside Lagos State. The maiden revival organized by the body was held at Sacred C&S Church, El-Bethel Shiloh Cathedral, Agege (State HQ.), between 20th and 24th October, 2004.  

To the God of St. Moses Orimolade Tunolase be the glory.
