You might not know him but Pastor Goodheart Obi Ekwueme has been a pastor with the House on the Rock in Abuja for the past 17 years.
So when he decided it was time to call it quits with the church owned by Pastor Paul Adefarasin and move on, he decided to do it by reading out his lengthy resignation letter to the entire congregation.In his four-page letter, the pastor said, ‘I began to pick up a most ‘unusual’ prompting from the Spirit of God, that my task and assignment under the umbrella of House on the Rock was coming to an end! Naturally – and again, my first reaction was a rejection of such thoughts, and a refusal to contemplate such ‘direction’.
He continued, ‘With my natural mind and logical thinking at the time, I assumed that such prompting could not be from God! But the nudging and prompting was persistent and impossible to deny –if I’ve learned anything in my walk with Him, it is in His voice and the LEADINGS and DEALINGS of the Holy Spirit. And so after two years of consistent prayer and waiting upon the Lord, as difficult as it was to finally embrace and accept that it was time for yet another “exit”.’
He went on to say further, ‘It is against this backdrop that my wife and I chose to courageously take the step of faith in obedience to God. I have prayerfully sought the understanding and permission of my spiritual father to be released from the responsibility of pastoring the wonderful local assembly and church Family of The Refuge, House on the Rock and my other responsibilities within the Rock Foundation.’
It is rumoured that Pastor Ekwueme has already set up his own church, named Horn of Festival Ministry.
It remains to be seen how many of the House on the Rock members will be following him to his new church as is normally the wont.
