The Prelate and Moderator of General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria, His Eminence Nzie Nsi Eke, has dedicated and commissioned the newly built Presbyterian Students Fellowship (PSF) house, located at the PCN Aladinma, Owerri Parish. Imo State.

Speaking during the church service held for the dedication/commissioning of the PSF house, the Prelate and Moderator lauded the students of PSF for bringing a new life, a new way of worshipping God in the church, adding that the zeal was second to none.

 

He hinted that PSF which started in 1991 was inaugurated as a Directorate in 2008. The PSF house started in September 2017. He expressed happiness that in a short while the building was completed under the leadership of the National Director, Very Rev David Ama Kalu.

The Prelate who spoke on the concept of fire, noted that the motivation is gotten from burning zeal akin to fire, while urging the students to keep their hearts on fire for God. If you do this ‘you will see results beyond your imagination’, he submitted.

Explaining further on the concept of fire, he said that some fires are not for consuming but for teaching and purification, referring them to read Jer 23:29, Zechariah 13:9, Mathew 3.
He stressed that three things can keep the fire burning which is, stirring up the gifts in one’s life, being regular in attendance to fellowship, and never saying I have enough.

He applauded the National Director of PSF for his doggedness and determination in achieving the feat of completing the PSF House. He equally lauded Owerri Parish for donating their land for the project and prayed to God to bless them and all who supported the project.

In his contribution, the National Director of PSF, Very Rev David Ama Kalu noted that before now the Directors of Presbyterian Students Fellowship (PSF) lived in the rented apartment from 2008-2020, adding that the dream of having PSF Manse was nurtured by Rev. Sharon K. Uka, and was consolidated by the strategic plan of the current leadership.

He posited that the idea of having a Manse was to tackle the challenges of distance to the headquarters, remove the burden of rents paid by the General Assembly and protect the image of the Church. He appreciated the church that the PSF house that started in 2017 has been dedicated in 2022, by the amazing grace of God.

Very Rev. Kalu thanked the principal officers of the church, especially the Prelate and Moderator, the Principal Clerk, Most Rev. Dr. Miracle Ajah, Synod, and Presbytery Moderators, Owerri Parish, all directorates, desks, departments, ministers, Elders parishes, PSFITES, and partners of the directorate who contributed to the realisation of the PSF house.

In his remarks, the National President of PSF, Samuel Ezera Ukoha expressed joy that the vision of having PSF manse has been realised, adding that the students will continue to be motivated by the support of the church.

He appreciated the Prelate and Moderator of the General Assembly of the church, His Eminence Nzie Nsi Eke for finding out time to grace the event, stressing that they were rather enthused by his visit, positing that the fire in them will not go down. He called on the students to continue to be good ambassadors of the PCN in all they do.
