Church news update: Adeboye calls for more Christian drama ministries

The wife of the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Folu Adeboye, has charged Christians to support Christian drama, saying it is a veritable medium for evangelism and discipleship.
Adeboye made this appeal at the World Premiere of With Wings Like an Eagle and Pastor’s Wife’s, the pilot of the RCCG Drama Department television serials last weekend. The project is in conjunction with the Redemption Television Media, Johannesburg, South Africa.
Pastor’s Wife is a satire, a mirror of what pastors and their wives are going through. It focuses on conflict in their official duties and the burdens placed on the shoulders of their wives. 
According to Adeboye, the need for the church to support Christian drama is important, as it can help to save lives, restore homes and shape destinies of millions of people around the world.
She said that a Christian drama ministry based on the scriptures had the capacity to reach many unreached people with the gospel message and get them convicted of their sins and make their way right with God.
She noted that the drama serial, Pastor’s Wife, is a welcome development to the needs, aspirations, challenges and godly principles needed for pastors’ wives in managing their homes and the church.
Adeboye, who pledged to support the production of some episode of the Pastor’s Wife drama series, appealed to Christians to work together and be part of the vision financially and spiritually.
The Managing Director of Redemption Television Ministry, Pastor Bamisile Badmus, said the two films were aimed at addressing the breakdown in marriages and rekindling hopes, through Christ, of the hopeless people around the world.
“The pastor’slife is one of the most difficult for women to bear. A pastor’s wife goes through a lot of work. We will learn how they build their homes in the midst of societal pressure”, he said.
