THIS IS OUR STORY; THIS IS OUR SONG
Like the Biblical King Saul, a young man confronted with tasks, urge for solutions to troubles and drive for answers to questions, embarked on a journey which was aimed at bringing about a turn around. The well desired hunt for greener pastures however pointed him towards the direction of his destiny. This is however not a surprise for the scripture says that: “Many are the plans in a man’s heart but it is the LORD’s purpose that will prevail”.
After what he, calls his first missionary journey between 1993-1994 in Germany, in the year 1996 precisely in the month of January during a church service in Lagos, Nigeria; a prophecy was given him saying: “If within one year no matter how much you try to run away, you are not ordained a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, then know that God has not called you”. This came after his several attempts to make himself another Biblical Jonah.
The LORD our God is the Almighty and no word of His will ever go without accomplishment. To His glory therefore in November of the same year having gone back on his second missionary journey, this young man was officially and publicly given the mandate to declare the glory of God, His Kingdom, righteousness and power without fear or favor by Rev. Emmanuel Amaning of Kingdom explorers Mission with other men of God in attendance.
He served heartily under his man of God, touching lives and saving souls. In the year 2002, after six years of serving and learning, this young man now growing older in the person of Pastor Darlington C. Jacobs was led by the Spirit of God to give birth to this great Ministry which has affected many lives.
He recalls how for months, it served only as a prayer meeting held in his sitting room every Wednesday. When the LORD gave the signals for the Church service to begin as well, for weeks, his apartment became too small for those who were hungry for the raw word of God which he declares. From there, we have moved to other bigger places as the LORD increases his Church. As a man with the heart and desire for knowing more of the Almighty, in the year 2003 he enrolled into IPCC Bible University in Hamburg where for more than two years he studied and learned at the feet of the Master tutored by Archbishop Oheneba Agyei Mensah.
In the year 2006, his father in the LORD Bishop Simon Iheanacho of UK World Evangelism Church during a Revival Service held in the Auditorium of C.O.B Hamburg before members of his congregation and visitors alike, proclaimed him a prophet of God. The gifts of God upon his life has continued to affect his members as well as any one that comes into contact with him as lives are imparted, empowered and transformed through the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Our publications, in books, tracts and magazines championed by our man of God, have continued to touch many lives. If Christ tarries, many other areas of the calling of C.O.B such as charities, hospital and prison visitations, will be explored into.
