On Friday 13th March, 2020 the Liberia International Radio and Television Preacher, who also doubles as the Founder and President of the Christian Evangelistic Pentecostal Church, Inc. (CHRISEM), Evang. Rev Christian K. Dagadu Sr. has urged women to be influential in society. He made this disclosure during a one day Women Conference held at the Mountain of the Lord’s Temple Ministry Church at Aberdeen in Freetown.
In his presentation, Evang. Rev Christian K. Dagadu Sr. disclosed that women are pivotal towards the development of any nation and in that regard they should be given the opportunity to serve. He urged women present at the conference that they should be women of influence and be productive, adding that women should also be contributors and not to just serve as recipients.
He noted that women have contributed much to the ministry of many Churches throughout history but their roles in that area has never been free from controversy saying today society doesn’t appreciate the roles of women, adding that long ago women were usually regarded as subordinates and inferior in virtually every area of life ,that they were to remain at home, to be good wives and mothers, and to take no part in public discourses or acquire education, saying the current roles women are playing globally redefine the negative notions people have about women in those days.
He said Jesus himself believes in women and in that regard he taught women like Mary of Bethany, the Samaritan woman etc. and incorporated them in his group of committed disciples, noting that the women Jesus included became the proclaimers of Jesus as Saviour and risen Lord and that it was women disciples who were the first persons to declare the message of Jesus’s resurrection.

Dagadu, who is into a worldwide ministry of teaching, training and evangelism is in the country on a two week “Walking Under an Open Heaven Crusade 2020” hosted by the Christian Evangelistic Pentecostal Church-Sierra Leone situated at 1H Old Railway Line at Tengbeh Town in Freetown.
