The Pastors and Leaders Conference, an initiative of Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, started as an in-house pastors retreat for ministers at The Fountain of Life Church, and has over the years, rippled in its reach to include other pastors, as well as corporate and political leaders across society.
The Conference, which is fast becoming a movement, is geared towards building a community for leaders across various strata of society to converge, sharpen themselves, and refuel for the demands of their office. Whether in ministry, business or politics, good leadership will always be pivotal to improving human condition.
This year’s conference, scheduled to hold from Wednesday, February 21st – Friday, February 23rd, is tagged: Leadership – The LightHouse. It will feature teachings, presentations, and panel discussions from a range of Christian Ministers, Technocrats, Industry Experts and Social Influencers.
