The General Superintendent
Pastor Aloysius Chukwuemeka Ohanebo is the General Superintendent of the Watchman Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement (WCCRM), with its headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria. In his over two decades in ministry, his view that Christianity must remain an “all-round package” has remained consistent. What this means is that any person, whether preacher or prophet, who claims to use the power of a holy God for miracles and wonders must equally vindicate such a claim by right-living and personal holiness in every conduct and relationship with others.
His name rings bell among the multitudes that had encountered him and his God-directed and God-centred ministry.
Pastor Ohanebo has excelled as pastor, evangelist, Christian leader, and well sought-after Bible teacher. He has come to be specially known for the “revelation-messages” he dishes out from time to time in which the mind of God for the hour is revealed. The non-denominational International Gospel Ministers Conference (IGMC) of The Hour, sponsored by the Watchman Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement has been a tremendous blessing to many pastors, evangelists, Church leaders, missionaries and other Church workers who convoke in several parts of the world to hear about God’s Three-fold End-time Project, which He revealed to Pastor Ohanebo for today’s Church. It is impossible to hear him and not be awed by his strong passion and deep concern for souls of men and the declining state of the Church; you cannot but be humbled by the exceptionally sharp intellect that orders his presentations. A trained quantity surveyor, he has built into himself (as is usual with quantity surveyors) the carefulness, meticulousness and precision of a construction economist, virtues he has brought to bear in his ministry and leadership. He had worked with a number of very reputable Construction Companies where he left enviable records of dedication, honesty and efficiency. In line with the character of sacrifice he teaches, he had continued to combine his secular work with the ministry until the workload made the combination impossible.
The phenomenal growth of the Watchman Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement, the presence of God’s power that has brought freedom and deliverance to many people, and the sound Christian doctrines and conducts which the Movement is known for, is eloquent testimony to the fact that indeed God has given to him and the Ministry he spearheads a definite mission for the hour. He presently lives with his wife and children in Lagos (the headquarters city of his Church). And from there, he oversees the several branches of the Ministry all over Nigeria, in several parts of Africa, the Middle East, Europe, United Kingdom, Canada and the United States of America.
According to full circle Magazine (February 2006 edition) a publication of the crossroads ministry, Ontario Canada, www.crossroads.ca/pdf/comp2006feb.pdf, Pastor Aloysius Chukwuemeka Ohanebo holds aloft the shining light of true godliness, selfless service and unquestionable character. He is a humble leader who beckons others to follow a Christ-like lifestyle as practised by Jesus and the apostles. Although Pastor Ohanebo’s ministry includes a lot of miracles, “where incurable diseases are rolled away,” he stresses that the real emphasis remains on the salvation of souls.
