The new of Rev Joseph Agboli death came across as rude shock, here’s all you need to know about him.
Many people in Nigeria believe that starting a church is one of the easiest businesses. In fact to others, it is a reliable source of income for the general populace.
It is thought that once you know your way around it, you can’t go wrong.
However, those in the know will warn you that it is not as simple as it appears. Yes, hundreds of churches are founded every day, but hundreds of them also fold because their foundations lack sincerity.
Victorious Army Ministries, founded by Rev Joseph Agboli and his wife, Blessing, is one of the thriving churches around.
VAM, as the church is known, began with a small congregation of approximately 70 persons in 1995, inside a flat in Opebi, Ikeja owned by Rev Joseph Agboli.
In reality, following a night vigil, a crowd of about 70 individuals descended on his home unannounced one Sunday morning. They had all left their separate houses on Sunday morning to attend Pastor Agboli’s church service.
The ministry now has a congregation of over 50,000 members and headquartered on ACME Road in Ogba, Ikeja.
VAM is committed to helping its people through empowering them, with a particular focus on the poor.
It offers programs to help the elderly and widows cope with the challenges of survival. Aside from providing financial aid to individuals in need, the church also assists its burgeoning young population in realizing their full potential.
Without a doubt, VAM is today not only one of the most popular and recognized churches in the country, but also one of the wealthiest in terms of assets.
Few people are aware that VAM is striving hard to establish its own private institution. The university is expected to gulp about N13 billion when it is finished.
Because Rev Joseph Agboli and his wife have a penchant for high standards, the university is expected to be world-class. They are also constructing secondary schools, which they hope to imitate and expand throughout the country.
The health sector is another area where the church is concentrating its efforts. A multibillion-naira hospital project is currently being developed and will be announced soon.
According to reports, the hospital project is the brainchild of Pastor (Mrs.) Blessing Agboli, and plans are in the works to hire foreign health consultants to administer the facility alongside some of Nigeria’s most skilled medical professionals.
The church is also said to have assets worth billions of naira strewn across Ogba and beyond.
Those in the know claim Pastor (Mrs.) Agboli, the founder’s gorgeous wife, deserves credit for the church’s excellent economic investments. She is thought to be the driving force behind the church’s strategic expansion in terms of business and investment.
Long before she met her husband, she had always been a businesswoman. Her remarkable financial success is admirable, despite the fact that she is a lawyer by training.
Her Real Estate Firm in California, USA, is one of her largest investments. She’s been operating the business for decades, and it’s only getting bigger.
To be honest, this wonderfully gorgeous and stylish virtuous woman has the Midas touch. Whatever she touches turns to gold almost instantly. When you meet her for the first time, you will be struck by her warmth and captivating energy.
Her dazzling grin and immaculate character would undoubtedly disarm you if you had reservations about her personality and approached her with a preconceived notion.
This is why her spouse adores her and never makes fun of her. This is also why all of the members of the church adore and respect Pastor (Mrs.) Agboli.
The female members, in particular, adore her. She may exemplify everything they aim to be in life.
She has a lovely marriage, has been blessed with wonderful and smart children, and has been an excellent partner, assisting her husband in the leadership of one of the country’s fastest-growing churches.
And, may we add, she is a stunning woman who has defied the passage of time to maintain her stunning attractiveness.
She won’t settle for anything less than high-quality textiles. Everything she wears is made for her, and she constantly tells anybody who will listen that she owes no one an explanation for being born beautiful and wealthy.
Without a question, they are the ideal pair, one that every young couple wishes to emulate in terms of substance, riches, and, most importantly, spirituality.
