Young Couples Fellowship Executives
The Young Couples Fellowship of Emmanuel Baptist Church which was inaugurated in 2008 through a vision which God gave to Revd. Taiye Shola Adeola was formed to bring Couples whose marriages are between ages of 0-12 years together so that they can share fellowship and prayerfully solve the peculiar challenges that confronts marriages within this age bracket.
In October 2010, the fellowship was broken into smaller groups of about ten comprising of four couples per group to strenghten the fellowship within these groups. As at today there are seventeen of these groups and each of them having about 9 couples.
By the grace of God the fellowship has recorded successes in the following areas:
To Build Godly families that excel and standout in every area of life in a perverse generation!
Marriage Consolidation: Reduction in the rate of broken marriages and cases coming to Pastors for settlement;
Evangelism: Some of the groups visit motherless homes and other institutions (in the name of Emmanuel Baptist Church, Sabo-Oke, Ilorin) to give materials and financial assistance;
Assistance of group members to secure jobs, start businesses of their own, build their own houses, pay school fees and attend ceremonial functions; Spiritual development through Bible studies and prayers within these groups.
Involvement in the life of the church: Many of our members are encouraged to be involved in the life of the church. They are playing active roles in their various units.
