Tope Tweets From Africa

My pastor has been on a ministry trip, here is his report, sent from the airport lounge and posted on the Jubilee Church news page.:The Zim conference was a success I believe. I am grateful and humbled. I preached 8 sermons in 3 days to A.O.G leaders.I preached Jesus again and again and again until they could see that - it's all about Jesus. It always was. It always will be. I challenged them to stop playing games with Gods Word when preaching. If it's not about Jesus, it's your gospel not His … [Read more...]

It’s All About Jesus

To our delight at Jubilee a few years ago a few different people who were visiting commented about our church, that it seemed to them to be "all about Jesus" rather than some other things church could be about. There is a song we have sung many times over the years that expresses the same idea "It's All About You, Jesus". So, when the leadership team couldn't seem to find a fancy "mission statement" for the church, it was decided we would simply use the phrase "It's all about Jesus" wherever … [Read more...]

Jubilee Prayer Meeting – A visitor's view

It was a delight for us to have two sets of visitors from two different continents at Jubilee this past weekend. Andrew Fountain from New Life Church Toronto was one of them. He has posted a report on his time with us, which included the following view of our prayer meeting.The first 20 mins were a time for coffee and fellowship and as more and more people arrived I wondered how we were going to fit into the meeting hall. (I counted over a hundred—more people than chairs.)We began with Tope K … [Read more...]

Video – Tope Koleoso On Alcohol And Other Dilemmas

Following on just a couple of weeks from his sermon on sex, Tope preached on another controversial matter. This is a subject where many Christians take very different views from each other.   I think that whether you agree with Tope or not you will, find the sermon of great  interest. If nothing else it is very funny as he describes the difference between African and English Christians on this issue. He also talks about other issues of conscience basing his talk from 1 Corinthians 8.  Should Ch … [Read more...]
