Pastor Aigbe Highlights the Importance of Women in Society

The Lead Pastor of House on the Rock (The Refuge) in Abuja recently emphasized the crucial role women play in society, asserting that “without women, there would be no life.

Addressing attendees, he stated, “God created men and women, and women have an essential role in life. Without you, women, life would never be the same. For all the colors and many things you do to make life interesting and fun, may God bless you and keep being all that God created you to be.”

The conference gathered women from various backgrounds to discuss issues impacting women and families.

Ibukun Awosika, the first female Chairperson of First Bank of Nigeria, spoke on the importance of empowering women to realize their full potential. She stressed that women are vital assets to the church and nation, and investing in them is critical for growth and development.

“Helping every woman to find her purpose and maximize her talents is key. Women are strategic assets for nation-building and the church, and investing in them yields long-term value,” Awosika emphasized.

Dr. Chichi Aigbe, President of the Woman-to-Woman Fellowship at House on the Rock (The Refuge), highlighted the importance of women supporting their husbands and families. She encouraged women to flourish and live according to God’s plans, especially during challenging times in Nigeria where many men struggle to provide for their families.

Doreen Mogaji, Coordinator of the Grow-to-Grow program under the women’s ministry, detailed the church’s initiatives to support small women-owned businesses. “House on the Rock is committed to giving back to our community. We have numerous initiatives, including providing food, clothes, and money to those in need,” she said.

The conference featured counseling sessions, entrepreneurial support, and other initiatives aimed at supporting families and women in crisis. It served as a call to action for women to continue making a positive impact in their communities.

Awosika also highlighted the strategic importance of investing in women and young people for the nation’s future. “Maximizing the talents of women is a strategic decision for nations, churches, and communities. Investing in young people early on saves them from future troubles and helps them perform maximally for a longer period,” she concluded.
