The National President of The Apostolic Church Nigeria, Apostle (Dr) S. E. Igwe, has made a case for the economic welfare of members of the church, holding that it is important for the church to be concerned with economic growth of the congregation.
Apostle Igwe who spoke shortly before laying foundation stone for the water factory project of The Apostolic Church, Akwa Ibom State Territory, named, TACKWA WATER, explained that apart from the interest for church revenue, there should be a conscious attempt at creating avenues for business opportunities and general economic growth for the congregation.
In his response, the Akwa Ibom State Territorial Chairman, Apostle A. O. Udoiyak, speaking through the Uyo Field Superintendent, thanked the National President for his support in kick-starting the project, announcing that the project will be completed before the next territorial convention.
Tackwa water is an investment initiative of Akwa Ibom State Territory, aimed at creating new revenue channel for the church and creation of jobs for members. Lately, the National President had directed that all territories should consider economic investment projects.
