2016 in Review
The meeting of December 31, 2015 set the tone for the year – 2016. The Lord spoke to us through His servant, Dr. Emeka Ozurumba, to take careful heed as never before that you accept and consider every breath you take in 2016 as if it is your last one. For the day of the Lord is at hand and the door is fast closing on this perverse, wicked, abominable and rebellious generation.
He spoke of three levels of complete and sincere self-evaluation:
Level of absolute resolve to do the will of God
Level of being half-baked.
Level of being cold.
For most of the year, the messages focused on attaining “The Ultimate Prize”. Without identifying the ultimate prize and working towards it, we will waste our time. This speaks of living in a constant state of readiness.

Nigeria, April, 2013
In April 2013, eight members of Today Evangelical Ministries went back to Nigeria for another mission trip. Today Evangelical Ministries kicked off this mission by an impromptu Ministration of the word by Dr. Ozurumba at Assembles of God Church, Amachara, Afikpo on Sunday April 14, 2013. He delivered a powerful message on Spiritual forgiveness and love for all which set the foundation for all the messages during this trip.
The next day, a three night crusade organized by the Afikpo South (Edda) Local Government Area commenced. Today Evangelical Ministries participated at this crusade on the invitation of the Afikpo South Local government Chairman, Hon. (Chief) Nkama, Nkama Ude. The theme for this Conference was “Hosting the Almighty God in Edda Land”. All the Local Ministers and Pastors under the umbrella of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) headed by a Catholic Priest participated in this Conference. Dr. Emeka Ozurumba ministered the Word the first two nights of the Crusade and the last day in a Question and Answer morning session. Over one thousand people were present each night for the Crusade. Almost all came out in answer to a call for prayers of repentance and to recommit themselves to the truth of the word of God. The Lord showed Himself mighty at these meetings.
Right after the Afikpo South Crusade, Today Evangelical Ministries immediately joined in another three day Pastors and Church Leaders Conference at Assembles of God Church, Amachara, Afikpo North. By the end of this conference, there was a strong evidence of brokenness among the church leaders as they danced and praised the Lord. Many rededicated themselves to the uncompromised and undiluted truth of the word of God.
Subsequent to the Afikpo Conferences, Today Evangelical Ministries traveled to Imo State where the team conducted two days Revival Meetings at Grace and Truth Revival Church, Owerri and a one day meeting at Balm of Gilead Ministries, Tower of Peniel, Orji, Owerri and then proceeded to Ngor Okpala for Today Evangelical Ministries Fellowship meeting.
After Imo State, Today Evangelical Ministries team headed to Lagos State where they held a final meeting, hosted by a special partner and servant of God, at the Wheatbaker Hotel, Ikoyi. Dr. Ozurumba ministered on “The Power of Reminiscence and Spiritual Understanding”.
The impact the messages in Nigeria had on many resulted in numerous invitations for Today Evangelical Ministries to return to Nigeria soon. If God allows it, Today Evangelical Ministries plans to be back to Nigeria before the end of the year (2013).
India, February 2012
On February 19, 2012, five members of Today Evangelical Ministries led by Dr. Emeka Ozurumba arrived in Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh, India where they remained for ten days. While in Kakinada, Today Evangelical Ministries in partnership with Pastor Kavuri Vara Prasad of Gates of Heaven Ministries, conducted three days Ministers’ Conference, three days Women’s Ministry Conference and three nights Village Revival crusades.
More than one hundred Pastors and some of their wives from numerous villages in Andhra Pradesh attended the Ministers’ Conference. Many had to travel hours to get to the conference hence they all stayed at the conference site wherein they slept on the floor for three days. Today Evangelical Ministries fed these pastors and provided them with transportation fare and gifts.
During the Ministers’ Conference, Today Evangelical Ministries presented bicycles to seventeen village pastors who had no means of transportation. The bicycles were to help these Pastors navigate and coordinate the tedious work the Lord has called and appointed them to do in the villages. One Pastor in particular had been praying and believing God for a bicycle for two years. God answered his prayer by placing it on the hearts of Today Evangelical Ministries members to gift the ministers with bicycles.
WOMEN MINISTRY CONFRENCE
Sister Joann and Sister Bisi conducted three days Women’s Ministry Conference in Kakinada, India. It was a refreshing time of anointed teachings and being in the presence of the Lord.
After the women’s conference, Today Evangelical Ministries moved on to three nights of Revival Crusade. Over two thousand people came out each night of the Revival crusade. Many were brought in farm tractors by their Pastors. Dr. Emeka Ozurumba ministered the word every night during these meetings. The atmosphere was charged for the three nights as people were actively engaged during the services. Numerous people gave themselves or rededicated themselves to the Lord at these meetings.
Dubai, March, 2012
Today Evangelical Ministries members arrived in Dubai on March 1, 2012 and were welcomed at the airport by our host Pastors Tenny and Lydia Ebai of Redeemer’s Refuge Ministries International, Dubai, accompanied by a host of other African ministers that live in Dubai. Today Evangelical Ministries in partnership with Redeemer’s Refuge Ministries International conducted three days conference. In attendance at the conference were two Sheiks (Muslim Rulers of the land), some ambassadors, the Anglican Chaplain who is the leader of all Christians in the United Arab Emirates, and some leaders of other Christian fellowships within the country. Dr. Emeka Ozurumba ministered the Word during the meetings after dynamic praise and worship by the local team.
Most people were engaged and excited about the message. On the last day of the Conference, many were filled with the spirit of thanksgiving and awe for what the Lord had accomplished. All were brought to their feet dancing, rejoicing and praising God for a job well done.
Nigeria, November 2012
