Our operations in Jesus Army dates back to July 2007 when the founding and senior pastor, Pastor Sunday, invited some brethren – about 12 – with whom he shared the vision of what God laid on his heart. Said he, “We earnestly began to pray and seek the face of God for divine backing and strategies to deploy in making the vision a reality.
Our first meeting joints were the Assemblies of God Prayer camp (along Lagos-Ibadan expressway), a detached 2-bedroom flat Boy’s Quarters provided by a beloved brother and his family in Lagos (where we lodged for 40days and nights), and the Onyx Plaza, within the GRA, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria.” Though very few at the time, we were a united front.
Impeccable life of holiness, the Bible as the final authority on all matters, sacrifice, fasting, aggressive prayer were openly taught, lived and clearly defined as our standard. We moved and walked together as a team operating under some outstanding grace. According to the senior pastor, “God was gracious; He confirmed our every word and move with diverse supernatural acts. Even to the most undiscerning, it was clear God was out to accomplish great works in the emerging Ministry.
