ABUJA - Pastor William Kumuyi, General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, on Saturday, charged Nigerian youths to be decisive, aspiring, virtuous and inspiring to achieve success in life.

Kumuyi, who was the Guest Minister at the ongoing YOWICAN National Convention 2023 with the theme "The Role of Christian Youth in Actualising God's Kingdom" held at the National Christian Centre, Abuja, tasked young people to be decisive in action to surmount all odds in life.

Speaking on the topic, "The Making of A Better Youth for a Better Nation," with text taken from 1 Samuel 17:32-37, and he sub-divided the message into three points namely; The Identity and Confrontation of Goliath; The Inferiority and Cowardice of the Gifted; and The Integrity and Cause of the Godly, pointed out that so many gifted youths have been overtaken by inferiority complex and cowardice, which have stagnated their progress.

He urged youths to aspire higher than the level they have attained, adding that they must take decisive actions of faith like David to conquer the 'Goliath' intimidating them, which seems to a great giant, obstinate oppressor, lawless liar, incomparable intimidator, aggressive adversary, terrifying talker and horrifying hater.

He also made the youth to understand that despite being gifted, they can be overrun and overtaken by inferiority and cowardice, leading to intimidation by strong delusion, impoverished by subtle disobedience and imprisoned by self -doubt.

Kumuyi, therefore, tasked them to awake like David and be unstoppable by family and familiar anger, unbreakable by false accusation and unconquerable by factual analysis.

The highpoint of the Convention was the conferement of award by the Youth Wing of Christian Association of Nigeria, (YOWICAN) on Pastor Kumuyi as "Father and Pillar of Faith in Nigeria."

Other activities included the unveiling of a national uniform for Christian Youths, decoration of the First Lady of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu as Grand Matron of YOWICAN and presentation of awards to selected personalities including the Governor of Taraba State, Dr Agbu Kefas, Reverand Esther Ajayi, among others.
