The Metropolitan and Senior Pastor of all House on the Rock churches, Paul Adefarasin over the weekend, led a team of volunteers to four communities; distributing food items, clothes and medical supplies to residents of the respective communities under its Project Spread initiative. The communities visited are Lagos Island, Ikate-Elegushi, Ebute-Meta and Bariga.
Recall that around this time last year and as it has been for some years now, the Church embarks on this Food and Free Medical service mission.
Project Spread is a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative of House on The Rock under the auspices of the Rock Foundation. It is the organization’s way of reaching out to the needy especially during a time when festivities can be so loud around us despite the fact that some have little or nothing to live on. According to Pastor Paul Adefarasin, spreading the gospel of Christ to the far-flung parts of Nigeria has always been an utmost priority for him. He believes in starting from his “Judea”, which is the immediate environment the ministry is planted. One of the ways he does this is by reaching out to the less privileged and the distaff that are amongst us – also following the biblical injunction that states: “…whoever gives to the poor lends to his Maker.”
As the holidays approach, it’s the mandate of the church and every well-meaning Nigerian to show and share love with all. Pastor Adefarasin also promised secondary school scholarships for some of the best brains in primary school in the communities visited for project spread 2017.
