Church members extol TB Joshua’s virtues at posthumous birthday anniversary



Members of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), on Wednesday, extolled the virtues of the late Founder of the church, Pastor Temitope Balogun Joshua (TB Joshua).

The SCOAN members spoke with our correspondent shortly before a church service to celebrate Joshua’s 61st birthday anniversary posthumously.

The late founder of SCOAN headquartered at Ikotun Egbe, Lagos State, was born on June 12, 1963, according to the church.

The renowned televangelist and philanthropist, died on June 5, 2021.

Mr Dare Adejumo, a member of SCOAN, said that Joshua had tremendous accomplishments across the globe in terms of gospel preaching, healing, deliverance and humanitarian works.

“As a child, he was a precocious one. The little Temitope stood out in character, understanding, knowledge with a propulsive bold faculty that used to amaze elders.

“He grew up facing life without losing focus of his assignment on earth as he grew up more in grace, wisdom and power till when the time came for him to announce his apostolicism,” he said.

He described TB Joshua as a game changer that invigorated and rejuvenated the early church.

Pastor Robert Acosta from Argentina said: “The man of God who impacted lives and transformed generations under the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit never died.

“The teachings, the example, the impartation continue to live in our hearts.

“Prophet TB Joshua, his life, example and ministry have been a gift from God to the whole world, but in a particular way to my life, my wife and family, and to our church and congregation.

“He was our pastor, our friend, for five years until he passed on to glory, and we continue to live with the legacy he left.

“I believe there is still much anointing to continue resurrecting lives and ministries, not by a man that has passed on to glory, but by the Spirit of God that continues to operate.”

Pastor Sandro Gomes dos Santos from Brazili said: “I am here to celebrate the birthday of Prophet TB Joshua, a unique man, a unique prophet, a great man of God. His legacy remains.

“The good works he did here on earth are wonderful and cannot be forgotten.

“Prophet TB Joshua impacted my life not only with his ministry of miracles, signs and wonders, but with his love for the Word.

“His teaching on offence and forgiveness completely changed my heart. I learned how to let go of offence and the importance of having a pure heart.”

He said that he was determined to come to Nigeria for the posthumous birthday anniversary celebration.

“There is a fresh anointing, something new and extraordinary. The wonders of God continue here, at SCOAN.

“God has done great and extraordinary things through Prophet TB Joshua, and that mantle continues to rest upon Pastor Evelyn Joshua,” he said.

Mr. Kolawole Samuel, an engineer and a follower of Joshua, said: “For the past 14 years, I have been part of the ministry, and by the grace I received through the anointing, I have not stopped coming despite the fact that I come from the far North of Nigeria, Sokoto.

“Every year, I specifically budget to be here in June for our prophet’s birthday anniversary celebration.

“The way he treated people inspired me to follow him,” he said.
