The Founder and General Overseer of the Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Dr. Paul Eneche has taken his philanthropic gestures to Plateau State where he donated relief materials to thousands of Internally Displaced People (IPDs) in various camps in the state.
Dr. Enenche who was in the company of his wife, Dr. (Mrs.) Becky Paul-Enenche and other top members of the church decided to undertake this monumental community projects and outreaches to show the milk of human kindness that flows in him.
Days after the commissioning of the 100,000-capacity Dunamis International Gospel Centre which has continued to divide Nigerians, the man of God decided to show that his ministry is not only about asking members to pay tithes and offerings but about helping the poor and the needy.
According to a media release by the church, while many have been condemning Dr. Enenche over the edifice, what they do not know is that he is very particular about helping the downtrodden.
The release reads:
“The newly commissioned edifice, the largest of its kind in Africa (or world) was tagged the Eighth Wonder of the World.
For many in Christendom, the magnificent worship centre is inspiring, even as they marvel and give glory to God and kudos to the church and her leadership.
However, what many don’t know is the unending humanitarian work of the ministry that has been going on silently for many years.
They have, in the past, carried out several developmental projects conceived and executed by the ministry.
The church, under the leadership of its founding and senior pastor, Dr. Paul Enenche, and his wife, Dr. (Mrs.) Becky Paul-Enenche had commissioned no fewer than 25 of such projects across the country, spreading across towns and villages.
The church has been a succour to victims of various calamities who ended up as Internally Displaced Person (IDPs).
In this charitable exercise, the Dunamis Ministry even surpassed the federal government in the provision of relief materials to victims.
This was further confirmed on December 8, 2018, during a Sunday service by a Plateau State indigene who stormed the Dunamis Glory Dome to thank the church for coming to the aid of the community with relief materials.
According to the visibly excited Plateau native who gave his name as Joel Choji, the IDPs from his community were grateful to God and thankful to the Enenche-led ministry for the items they donated.
The very emotional Choji had said: ‘I want to give testimony to the glory of God on behalf of my community for what this church and the Senior Pastor have done for our community.
Recently, the crisis in Plateau State wiped away our community and Daddy sent relief materials to the IDP camps.
I was in Jos last week and they called me and were celebrating. They asked me to tell my Pastor that they are grateful for the items he sent. They said this is how a church is supposed to be.
They told me that even the churches where they worship did not send any relief materials to them.’
His testimony further reinforced the statements of Prof. Dennis Ityavyar, Benue State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, who earlier this year affirmed that the revered clergy and the church brought reliefs for the IDPs in Benue in a proportion that surpassed the federal government donation.”
However, a source in the church has confirmed that Dr. Enenche had placed an embargo on the publicity of any sorts regarding the church’s charity activities.
Hence, a lot of the church’s outreaches go unsung. According to him, ‘the minister is a man of great modesty; whatever good the church does should be kept away from the limelight and public glare and would be rewarded publicly by God.’
It was gathered that the ministry actually embarked on this particular humanitarian act on October 8, 2018, while in the heat of preparation for the Glory Dome dedication.
In the wake of the Plateau crisis, truckloads of relief materials were distributed by the church to the major IDP camps in Angludi, Riyom and Heipang areas of the state.
Some of the items distributed to the IDPs included hundreds of bags of rice, over 500 mattresses, hundreds of cartons of noodles, slippers, detergents, sachet tomatoes, toiletries, wears and several others.
