The Brotherhood of the Cross and Star brethren from the United States of America have been requested to restrategize to provide greater services to God and the New Kingdom of God in the coming year.
The Heavenly Father, His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu, in His address to mark the fifty years celebration of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star in the United States, called on the members to reposition themselves and adopt newer approaches towards promoting BCS in the nation.
Giving an appraisal of their activities so far, the King of kings and the Lord of lords tasked them to tackle the challenges of limited worship centers, improve infrastructural and human developments, and contemplate new ways to imbue citizens of the country with the knowledge of the Kingdom.
The Holy Father mentioned that the fifty years celebration of BCS in the USA is a testimony to the fact that the Kingdom is growing higher and higher and is likened to the mustard seed that has brought forth many seeds.
While appreciating the members for their contributions to the development of BCS and the construction of the Supreme Temple so far, the Supreme Father acknowledged their sacrifices and assured them of His immeasurable blessings.
The Holy Father also called on the members to reflect on the teachings of the New Kingdom and represent them in their various fields of endeavours. He reminded the faithful that as children of the light, they should always make their lights shine to illuminate the paths of others.
Commending the leadership of the nation, headed by Patriarch Christ Shepherd Todd Johnson for his administrative pattern, His Holiness urged members of the Nation to continually support the administration to the glory of the Father.
BCS in the USA was started in 1971 by the late Bishop Meyer, who was an evangelist in both print and visual media in the United States. He was a presenter of religious programmes where he preached the gospel of the New Kingdom to the Americans. This led to the construction of a worship center in Florida.
Presently, the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star in the United States has bethels in Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, California, New York, Florida, Houston, Detroit, and Washington.
Thank You, Father.
