Church Planting is an experience every RILA graduate must have before the completion of their program This is no doubt in line with the vision of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
In 2002, the Rector in an attempt to give expression to his God give passion for Rural Evangelism and Empowerment organized an evangelism outreach in the rural coastal axis of Lagos State – Eleko, as it is now known.
It began just with a beach-side fellowship, soon an RCCG parish was planted. Now, the dream is bigger…
The Atlantic Coast Welfare Outreach Program is a yearly Evangelism/Outreach Program carried out by RILA students, Alumni and Partners. It aims at Reaching Souls for Jesus in the Rural Coast through Youth and Children Empowerment, Excel Football and Quiz Competition, Powerful Evangelistic Crusades and Welfare Programs.
