People of God,
2013 is a very special year for us, being our 50th anniversary. I welcome you all to a new dawn and the year of our Golden Jubilee. The past 50 years have afforded us the opportunity as a people to build a fellowship whose sure foundation is Jesus Christ. To make the year eventful and memorable, we need commitment and participation.
We have made giant strides, learnt many lessons, witnessed great move of God and HIS Spirit and survived numerous challenges. What has kept us through these years is GRACE. The giver of this is God and that is why we are celebrating the GIVER, hence, the theme for 2013 Reunion: Celebrating God’s faithfulness.
We have used the past one year after the last reunion to lay a very solid foundation for our chapters. It is no longer news that we now have more vibrant chapters with full participation; in fact our chapters have earned many accolades. Let us not relent but keep reminding ourselves that we possess enormous strengths if and when we stay together. Making our chapters a rallying point should therefore be our collective goal.
Going into 2013 and beyond, our collective task will be to forge a formidable bond as a people. Of course it will require a lot more hard work, endurance and unrivaled passion for the things of God and HIS people. Home and abroad (because ECU Alumni are everywhere) wherever we may be, let us continue to pray for one another, push onward and forward towards perfection.
We enjoin every one to be part of this year’s reunion. Preparation has started and sensitization too. It is time to begin to identify those that have never been part of reunion and take the news to them. We count on everyone to be part of this publicity move and we trust that we will spread the news. Every set must be dully represented; from 1963 to 2013!!!
… and let the publicity starts now!!!
God bless you.
People of God,
