BRIEF HISTORY OF CGMI EJIYERE HEADQUARTERS
The Church started in 1970 at the Local Authority Primary School at swamp road Warri by some Scripture Union Students (SU) FROM Benin that are residing in Warri through the Youth Evangelical Movement.
Some of such are: Rev. E. Enofuroh (Overseer, Spring Trust), Rev. Dennis Muoghere, Rev. Blankson Dudu (Deeper Life Bible Church) and Evangelist (Mrs.) Erhisere.
Rev. Edosamwam of CGM was the first Pastor who alternated with lay preachers like the then Bro. Onofuroh in tending the church. To enhance progress, the Youth Evangelical Movement metamorphosed into the Souls Harvesters.
Th church later shifted base from the Primary school to the house of Papa Ejukulem at Ighogbadu and finally to No: 8 Ejiyere street in a wooden structure. God then used Evangelist (Mrs.) M.O. Erhisere to convince Evangelist Cousin Mosheshe who gave the land eventually to the church free of charge. The inauguration service of Ejiyere branch started with the wedding ceremony of Rev. & Rev. Mrs. Wilson Ofoluwa on the 2nd of February 1975.
