The launch of the new assembly, Trinity House, was witness by a large turnout of members and well wishers.
In his welcome message, Mr. Ighodalo thanked ministers, friends and family, who stood by him during his period of difficulty. “I want to thank all the ministers of God who gave us encouragement in those dark times. May God continue to bless you all.” Mr. Ighodalo last year left his position as Pastor of Christ Church Parish due to controversies over his second marriage to Jumoke Ajayi in 2007. The controversies arose because his first wife was still alive.
He introduced the new church, Trinity House, as a church with a mission to transform the society and the future of generations yet unborn. He said “It is with great pleasure that I welcome you,
in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to Trinity House, a place where children of God of all denominations can gather in fellowship for the propagation and advancement of God’s kingdom here on earth.” Speaking at the inauguration, Pastor Fagboyegun who represented the Ekiti State governor, Olusegun Mimiko, urged Mr Ighodalo to continue in his calling. He said, “We believe in the anointing of God upon your ministry. We believe God that great shall be your destiny. Through God, you will do great things. The government of my state believes in you.”
Other dignitaries at the event included former governor of Ekiti State, Niyi Adebayo, former first lady of Cross River state, Onari Duke, former high commissioner to the United Kingdom, Christopher Kolade, amongst others.
Mr. Ighodalo said he had received tremendous support from Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Church of God saying “I want to thank my General Overseer and his wife, Pastor E.A Adeboye and his wife who said to me, Ituah, in spite of everything, I still believe in you and I want to assure you that I have his full support for that which is happening here tonight.”
