NATIONAL COORDINATOR'S DESK
Gratitude is the memory of a glad heart. I am most grateful to God who gave me the
inspiration and the strength to source useful materials from our archives and make
wide consultations and receive invaluable advice from the founding fathers of
TACSFON inside Nigeria and in diaspora for the realization of this publication.
We in TACSFON have a common divine denominator. We are all attached and glued to the
Master, Jesus Christ, with divine tenacity which defies ethnic and tribal
chauvinism, satanic threats and attacks and even persecution. As our Creator, all
history begins in Christ. As the perfect Israelite, He fulfilled the spirit and
letter of the law and history of “the chosen people”. As our Judge, all history ends
in His courtroom. As our Saviour, all who trust His offer of mercy find fulfillment
notin what we have done for God but in what God has done for us in Christ ( I
Corinthians 15:10; Colossians 2:8-15).
TACSFON is highly indebted to God for His love, care, providential support and
supplies, His full protection of our lives and vision and the expansion of His
Kingdom in the world, TAC and our lives. Our hearts are enlarged for the fatherly
love, warmth and support of our late father, Pastor S.G. Adegboyega, who, even
though indisposed at the time when TACSFON was being formed, gave his approval for
our late father, Pastor I.G. Sakpo, to give audience to our founding brethren in
Lagos and to see far into what God was about to do with the youths in the Apostolic
Church, Nigeria. But for his approval, it may be difficult to have TACSFON in the
history of The Apostolic Church, Nigeria as of today.
We also bless the name of the Lord for the love and the graceful spirit with which
the fathers who strategically placed over the affairs of TAC Fields in Nigeria
played to seeing TACSFON to full establishment in schools and TAC assemblies all
over the country in fulfillment of God’s prophetical message to us at the inaugural
day. Fondly remembered were late Pastor E.E. Okon, the 1st National President of
TAC, Nigeria and the Field Superintendent of Calabar Field; late pastors I.G. Sakpo
and S.S. Jemigbon,the 1st and the 2nd Vice Presidents of TAC, Nigeria and LAWNA
Chairmen respectively; late Pastor Z. A. Alabi and Pastor S.O.B. Amaogu, the 1st
National General Secretary and the Assistant General Secretary of TAC,Nigeria
respectively; late Pastors Anyancho and Faara Vigo, the Field Superintendents of
Igbo and Maritime Fields respectively and all other members of the inaugural NEC of
TAC, Nigeria. You were all part of the history of TACSFON for in your spiritual
focus, well- calculated spiritual insight and foresight and full dependent on the
Holy Spirit you gave us a written approval and mandate to operate freely. Though
many of you are glorified,you speak volumes in our hearts today. We salute the
courage you displayed in our periods of childish behaviours. Your faith and trust in
our vision and your godly reasons and compassion that overlooked our limitations
believing that today’s saints were either yesterday’s spiritual raw-materials or
unfinished spiritual products are quite exemplary and heart-warming. And for the
present fathers in the Lord, starting from our beloved father, Pastor( Dr) G.O.
Olutola, the 2nd National President of TAC,Nigeria and the current LAWNA Territorial
Chairman; our beloved Pastor A.N.Aeba , the current Maritime Field Superintendent;
pastor B. E. Duke, the 2nd National General Secretary of TAC, Nigeria, who has been
an adviser to South Eastern Zone of TACSFON for many years and other members of NEC,
TAC,Nigeria,we are very grateful for the inspiration and great support received from
you over the years individually. Thank you very much.
Now, to my colleagues, the TACSFON national and zonal executive members, you have
always been the driving force of this ministry. Whether past or present, you are
part of this history and your contributions are the subject of this unique
publication- the sacrificial donation of your lives, time and money at the inception
of this ministry; your commitment to weather all odds, afflictions and persecution
and your loyalty to the Master in reaching out to the youths within and outside the
Glorious Vision of TAC. All our members inside and outside the country our sister
fellowship, the APOSA, Ghana are all part of this history. Thank you all for your
personal contributions, encouragement and support throughout these thirty-three
years of existence and during the period of writing this book.
I must also appreciate my good friends and brothers who spare their time to go
through the manuscripts and make useful corrections and advice-Pastor John in the
UK, Pastor Gbenga Oyedapo, my beloved brother and the Vice President of TACSFON,
Presiding Elder Isaac Ameobi and others who volunteered useful information. Iam
grateful for your tireless encouragement and support.
Finally, I wish to appreciate the role played by……………………………………………… ..under the
leadership of ………………………………………………………..who himself is a TACSFONITE. We bless the Lord
for you and Elder Sunday Oluwole and others in the same company whose efforts and
laudable assistance have made this publication possible. The Lord blesses
thiscompany because of the favour shown TACSFON and God’s work.
As the blossom cannot tell what becomes of its fragrance, only God knows the impact
He wants to create through TACSFON ministries and her members. Nevertheless, for
us,“we must work the works of Him who sent us while it is day, for the night is
coming when no man can work (John 9:4)”.
