Joda, a men’s ministry pioneer, founded Champions for Christ (CfC) as a ministry of CCIC and in 2001, organised the first National Men’s Conference on the theme Mighty Men of Valour, which held in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt. CfC later became the Nigeria national office of Christian Men’s Network, a US-based, inter-denominational, international ministry to men, founded by the late Edwin Louis Cole.
A statement by KMEN’s Dennis Onwuegbu stated: “Remi Akano, chief vision steward of Kingdom Men and many of us in the leadership team of the ministry,Men are products of his vision for raising and discipling men to take their place in the Divine Plan. And so, by extension, is the ministry, Kingdom Men. That is why there is nobody better qualified to be Special Guest of Honour at the ministry’s flagship event.”
Dr Joda, as a young doctor, responded to the call of God upon his life, by laying aside a promising medical career to found and take up the mantle of leadership of the vibrant church now known as Christ Chapel International Churches. He has and continues to work tirelessly at coaching his flock to be rooted and grounded in the word of faith, know who they are in Christ and enforce the victory of Christ in their lives and circumstances.
A pastor of pastors, who has trained pastors for the work of the ministry, he selflessly travels thousands of miles yearly, depositing spiritual truths into the lives of believers at home and around the world. As a result, Christ Chapel members can be found around the globe doing exploits for God with established Churches and their own ministries, affecting their communities – to the glory of God.
Dr Joda, widely referred to as ‘Coach’ will also speak at the Ministry to Men Summit, another special session of the Mega Summit on Friday morning.
