As the new millennium unfolded, a passion to make impact and make a difference in my generation began to mount pressure on me. In the year 2000 I began to see pictures of a new nation.
Suddenly, the Holy Spirit inspired me with these words in August 2002.
“The continent of Africa is presently undergoing a socio – spiritual reformation that would culminate in the economic, political and technological revival of this great continent.
A new breed of youths the world has never seen before are rising from this continent beginning with Nigeria as the trigger of this maximum impact.
With the tools of creativity, the African youth would restore the dignity of the continent of Africa.
The harvest of Africa has never been more ripe.”
The vision which gave birth what is today known as the Center for Creative Youth International has a base founded on scriptural concretes.
The Holy Spirit in the course of time fired into me the following scriptures to prove the validity and eternal scope of the vision. ………..a great people and a strong: there hath never been the like, neither shall there be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
Joel 2: 2 – 28 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: they shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and they shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of paths to dwell in. Isaiah 58:12
And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolation, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolation of many generations. Isaiah 61:4
And Saviors shall come up on mount Zion to Judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s. Obadiah 21
Up till this day, this has been the scriptures that have single-handedly sponsored all the activities of the youth ministry.
In its simplest form, our vision is to:
Raise youths that are Kingdom addicts (combating all forms of drug addictions and cultism etc)
Raise youths that are financial champions
Raise Industrial giants (Promote entrepreneurship skill acquisition)
Raise creative leaders (Promote a unique philosophy of spending yourself towards making life meaningful for others)
Raise society changers and City developers. (To offer significant help to the less privileged in our society – feed the poor, cloth the naked and feed the hungry of which the youths and children constitute a very large percentage)
Raise great sport ambassadors (Promote education and faith in sports) Release from Africa, Apostles of Social – Economic, Political and Technological transformation.
