I know of no Minister around the world that is more unique and influential than Bishop Sunday Adelaja. I count him as a wonderful friend in the Kingdom and pray God’s divine protection and direction over his dynamic ministry. The supernatural principles of this book are radical, controversial and life changing. They will make ministers of the Gospel reconsider their place and calling in ministry. Our minds will be stretched and our concepts will be challenged, as they should be, for more effective 21st Century ministry, and preparation for the coming of the Lord.
Dr. Wendell Smith, The City Church of Seattle, USA
Sunday Adelaja is a leading figure, not only in the Ukraine, but in the world. He has a spirit of faith driven by his compassion for people. The word he speaks is one of authority!
Billy Joe Daugherty, Victory Christian Center, Tulsa, OK
Sunday Adelaja is one of those new breed of men who is influencing a nation, and modeling a new style of missions. While there are some men who see success in another church or nation and follow their example, Pastor Sunday is that example that men from around the world hear about, and follow. He is a cross-cultural missionary who has made a new mold of what missions can do, to touch a nation. I consider Pastor Sunday a modern day hero of the Faith.
Pastor Robert Barriger, Camino De Vida, Lima, Peru
Sunday Adelaja and I share a hero – Dr. D. James Kennedy. Through Dr. Kennedy’s passion for both the evangelism mandate and the cultural mandate, Pastor Sunday was inspired to equip his congregation to impact public life. What a mark Pastor Sunday has made on Ukraine, Europe, and the world! I applaud his vision for ministry.
John Sorensen, Executive Vice President, Evangelism Explosion International.
Several years ago I was discarding items from an overgrown stack of mail. One brochure caught my eye. As I read, I was gripped by Sunday Adelaja’s brilliant grasp of the interrelationship between biblical truths and public policy. Instead of trashing it, I showed the article to others. If one brochure is that enlightening, think what an entire book might be.
Dr. Jim Garlow, Senior Pastor, Skyline Wesleyan Church San Diego, CA
If your life needs a revolution, Pastor Sunday has done that as well, described in these pages. His book “ChurchSHIFT” provides God’s model for transformation and the mind-set of a Christ-centered revolution all from an incredible man who has lead and experienced them both.
Dr. Ben Lerner; New York Times Best Selling Author and U.S. Olympic Team Physician
When you read about the awesome experiences of Pastor Sunday, it will inspire you to believe God for “greater things”. I cannot wait to see this book published and read by thousands of pastors and church leaders like me who are hungry for a powerful and extraordinary move of God to impact our cities and nations.
David A. Sobrepeña, Founding Pastor Word of Hope Church Manila, Philippines
Favour may open doors, but influence changes nations. Sunday Adelaja is a man of great influence for the cause of Christ. His anointing services in Kiev in a massive sports stadium are so dynamic, diverse, exciting that when they end after five hours, no one wants to leave! Simply spectacular! That is the man Sunday Adelaja – simple truth, spectacular faith, massive results. Catch the largeness of his spirit, and find the greatness of God unfolding in your life.
Paul Louis Cole President, Christian Men’s Network
Just as Moses was a meek leader who impacted change in a nation by the power of God, so has Sunday Adelaja. In a meek, yet bold way, Pastor Sunday shows the world how to make the Gospel socially relevant. His words will challenge you. His story will inspire you!
Bishop Dale C. Bronner, D. Min., Word Of Faith Family Worship Cathedral, Atlanta, GA
In today’s fatherless world, where men abdicate their roles and shun responsibility, God must raise up fathers who will accept responsibility for families, communities, and nations. Sunday Adelaja, a fatherless child, has become a father to a nation. This book reveals the Father’s heart and inspires us to act on what is right.
Doug Stringer, Founder and President, Somebody Cares
In CHURCHSHIFT, Sunday Adelaja articulates the greatest need Christians have today – for churches not just to be large, but to be large in influence. This book will help not only to build churches but to take nations.
Alexey Ledyaev, Senior Pastor, New Generation Churches, Riga, Latvia
The Great Commission includes saving souls and planting churches, but much more. God’s mandate to us is nothing less than taking dominion of His entire creation here on earth. No one has put this mandate into practice more wisely and effectively than my good friend, Sunday Adelaja. Of all the excellent new books on aggressively advancing the Kingdom of God, this one stands out as being the most practical.
Peter Wagner, Presiding Apostle International Coalition of Apostles
I believe CHURCHSHIFT is one of the most important and timely messages that you will ever read. This book is not only relevant, it is revolutionary. One thing that stands out about the great man of God, Sunday Adelaja, is His passion for the Kingdom and his vision for the nations. Are you ready to begin the greatest journey of your life? Your life is about to change!
Sam Hinn, Pastor, The Gathering Place Worship Center, Orlando
The interesting thing about Pastor Sunday’s “ChurchShift” is that it doesn’t only communicate vision, it communicates the passion to fulfil vision.
Sunday has practically applied the principles of the Kingdom to his life, church, city, nation, and the world in every sphere of life and it is bringing transformation. The only hope of seeing transformation in our world is the living out of the principles he teaches from God’s Word about the Kingdom. Rock on Sunday! Read this book-then apply it.
Bob Roberts, Pastor NorthWood Church; Author, Transformation and Glocalization
Sunday Adelaja brings to you one of the greatest Christian hero stories of the modern world. Reading these pages, you will be inspired to live a greater life than you have ever dreamed possible. Your fear will be turned into faith, your burdens into blessings and your impossibilities into possibilities in Christ. Think of Pastor Sunday in terms of, “These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also (Acts 17:6).
James O. Davis, Cochair/Founder, Billion Soul Initiative
Pastor Sunday Adelaja is a true man of God called to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ all around the world. His faithfulness and friendship have touched my life and the lives of many. This book will give you a true understanding of what the church is called to be; strong, powerful, and full of life. If you want to have an impact in your life, read this book, take to heart the message, and go fulfill the great commission.
John Bevere, Founder, Messenger International
There are many different levels of leadership in the world today. There are those leaders who want to make a difference in people: there are those leaders who want to make a difference in people who want to make a difference and last there are those few leaders who have learned how to make a difference in people who want to make a difference throughout all of eternity. Pastor Sunday Adelaja and his world class church in Kiev, Ukraine is such a leader who is making a difference forever in the lives of people worldwide.
James O. Davis, Cofounder, President, CEO, Global Pastors Network, Orlando, Florida
Sunday, God bless you in your important mission. When I next come to Ukraine I would like to be at your church.
Former mayor of New York Rudolph Gulliani
In my role as Christian journalist, I know or have interviewed many of the mayor Christian leaders worldwide. To me, Sunday Adelaja and his Embassy of God ministry are among the most impressive of any I have covered. I thank God for what has been accomplished in only a dozen years in this ministry. I pray that God will continue to bless this ministry and in the process Pastor Sunday Adelaja will continue to be the humble man of God I have found him to be. My congratulations to the entire ministry on this important anniversary!
Stephen Strang, Founder, Charisma magazine
Every christian that can attend the celebration in Kiev should make every effort to be there. I’ve never seen such a happy church. They study God’s word, rejoiced in His faithfulness, grow in His power, receive His idea for a brighter future for both them and their nation. It’s the greatest celebration I’ve ever seen of God’s mercy and grace.
Pastor Ted Haggard, Colorado Springs, CO
Congratulation with the 12th Anniversary of your wonderful church the embassy of God exists not through words but by power. In this church, people learn how to walk in their destiny and the power of prayer and liberty of entrepreneurial ship. See Psalms 1.
Through his church we see breakthrough in social, spiritual, economical, political areas in Ukraine. We can see all kinds of fruit e.g. the orange revolution.
I love Pastor Sunday. It’s wonderful to see and experience the involvement and personal care of Pastor Sunday. He is a wonderful spiritual father.
Rob Allart, The Netherlands
Congratulations, Apostle Sunday for the example you have set and for your persevering faithfulness to God. When the Embassy of God was birthed in Kiev twelve years ago, no one could have imagined that it would so quickly become one of the World’s most influential churches. We live in a day when the spirit of God is speaking to the churches about their mandate to take dominion over God’s creation and to transform the society in which they live. It would be difficult to point to a local Church and its growing apostolic network of daughter churches that has had more influence on a Nation than the Embassy of God has had on Ukraine. You, Sunday, are an outstanding role model for pastors all over the world who desire to see the Kingdom of God penetrate their cultures. My prayer is that you will continue in humility, in holiness, in the power of the Holy Spirit, and in your God given apostolic authority by the next 12 years and far beyond.
Peter Wagner, Presiding Apostle, International Coalition of Apostle, Colorado Springs Colorado, USA
My name is Pastor Christer Segerliv. I am pastor of Kingdom Center in southern Sweden, and since three years under the covering of Pastor Sunday Adelaja. The first anniversary I attended was the 9th anniversary 2003. Coming to the conference I was astounded by at least five main things; the great organization, the awesome freedom over the people — not just on the front rows but over the whole auditorium — the warm hospitality, the powerful and colourful worship and the high level of the teaching. Another thing that impressed me was the atmosphere of celebration and festivity — an atmosphere that I live in myself — which made me feel right at home. The whole anniversary is saturated with the knowledge of the reality that we are sent from heaven and living above, not crawling and begging from a bad earthly position. Also I see it as very positive that most of the speakers are coming from the God Embassy movement, which makes the teaching very practical and hands on. At the anniversary last year, I had the privilege to participate when Pastor Sunday took the whole conference out on the street — and with the power of the whole congregation demanded the land that they had been promised. This was a remarkable testimony of the power that the body of Christ has when it comes together and requires its’ rights.
I’ve known Pastor Sunday for almost three years now, since March 2003, and I’ve been travelling together with him extensively all over the world. I’ve not only heard his messages but I’ve seen his life in various situations, and lean say that I’ve never seen a Christian leader on this level having so much time and interest for all kinds of people, despite of their positions. That tells me that the super-star attitude among many leaders in the body of Christ is totally unnecessary. Instead of six body guards taking him out from the services he takes time to meet and minister to people in a personal way. It seems like he’s interested in every person’s history and destiny.
I have seen how Pastor Sunday’s two main messages; Seeking God and living totally devoted to Him, and secondly; Taking part and conquering society by building the Kingdom of God in every sphere of life, have changed the destiny of the Ukrainian nation. A country that was so oppressed, firstly by communism and then poverty and corruption, is now starting to experience freedom. Also, the way that Pastor Sunday encourages the body of Christ globally, to build the Kingdom of God in every area, is just tremendous. If every church in the world would have done the same, we would have had a changed world.
In my opinion Pastor Sunday is one of the best apostles in this time and still, he has just begun. I am looking forward to many years of good work together with my Pastor Sunday Adelaja. I strongly recommend all pastors and leaders to come to Ukraine and see what a happy, healthy and strong church can do in the society today.
Pastor Christer Segerliv, Kingdom Center
Greetings from Dr. Francis Wale Oke To Pastor Sunday Adelaja, and God’s Embassy on the occasion of the 12th Anniversary. Greetings to Pastor Sunday, the dynamic, visionary, courageous yet humble leader of God’s Embassy for all nations in Ukraine.
Greetings to the apostolic team, and the leadership of God’s Embassy for all nations. Greetings to the entire vibrant, destiny shaping God’s Embassy — that has not only affected Ukraine but is affecting and shaking nations of the world.
You are, without any doubt a model of what the new testament church of Jesus Christ is supposed to be — true worshippers, purpose driven, mission oriented and truly anointed of the Holy Spirit, operating in signs and wonders.
What God Almighty has done by your hands in the past twelve years is truly amazing. It is a clear demonstration of what God can do when His people walk in obedience under a focused, wise apostolic leadership.
There were twelve tribes of Israel: Twelve apostles of the lamb. The city of New Jerusalem has twelve foundations and twelve gates. Twelve is a most significant number in the scriptures. Without any doubt, God has brought to a glorious conclusion the first phase of your World — Wide Ministries. The foundation has been truly laid in righteousness.
As you enter into the next phase, It shall be much more glorious than the first, for the “latter house shall be greater that of the former, saith the lord of hosts; and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord Almighty”(Haggai 2:9)
Once again, greetings. The Lord shall increase you more and more and lead you from strength to strength, and take you from glory to glory.
II Corinthians 3:18
Dr. Francis Wale Oke, The Sword of the Spirit Ministries Nigeria
It appears it was just yesterday that I made my first trip to Kiev to under gird you and bring support to you for the majestic journey ordained and sanctioned in the heavenly counsel of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.
You and Pastor Bose responded prophetically to the question posed by Jesus “What seek ye” and then Jesus’ invitation to them “Come and See” You resolved that whatever sacrifices were required you were willing to make them and then humbled yourself, first, to the Lord and then, to me. By the will of God (2Cor. 8:5) everything The Holy Spirit wanted to accomplish in the both of you already existed, He only used me as a vessel, an instrument, to set in motion in your life and in this earth realm what He had already completed.
As I rethink the last twelve years, which represents the number of Eternal Perfection, it is very apparent that the sovereign Lord has faithfully watched over His word to cause you and Pastor Bose to be names to be established throughout the earth.
As a Shepherd who leads a flock, The Lord Jesus has guided you, Pastor Bose, and the Embassy of God to be “a shinning star” in these final days of countdown to lead those who have been blinded by the God of this world or religion to see Him, The Christ (The Star) who is invisible (Mt. 2:2, 7, 9 – 10, Heb. 11:27b). Again, I congratulate you for your labor of love in the body of Christ.
Apostle Ulysses Tuff and Pastor Deborah Tuff
Throughout history events human characters have emerged that step out from the shadows of obscurity; the light legacy shines on their significance on the stage of human drama. The history, development and accomplishments of my friend Pastor Sunday over the past twelve years are nothing more than a divine miracle and contradict all the norms of human expectations. I am humbled, honored and privileged to know, fellowship and serve this unique, passionate and inspiring man and to testify of his humility, sincerity and dedication to the vision, people and nation the Lord of Heaven have called him to.
I wish to congratulate my beloved friend, pastor Sunday, on his twelfth year of ministry and service to the saints at the Embassy and wish him many more years of health, strength, wisdom, vision and success as he strives to fulfill his purpose and maximize his potential to the glory of God.
The nation of the Ukraine is blessed to have had the apostolic and prophetic gift of Pastor Sunday for the past twelve years and I believe their national future is tied to the growth and expansion of the church of God in the nation. May the God of Heaven and Earth bless you Pastor Sunday and the entire family of the Embassy and we consider ourselves a part of this family also.
Best wishes from my wife Ruth, our entire Bahamas Faith Ministries International Fellowship family and the Trustees and members of the International Third World Leaders Association around the world. Pastor Sunday, May His kingdom come to the nations through another twelve years of obedience.
Always your friend,
DR. MYLES MUNROE
It is an extreme honor for me to be among those he calls “friend”. I am in absolute awe of how God can send someone from a different continent, place him into an Eastern European nation and build the largest church in the continent; and then, for this man to build such a passion into these people is staggering and encouraging to all the world. I am so grateful that God has raised up Pastor Sunday to influence the church of the Ukraine which is also influencing the church of the nations. Nothing is impossible with God and nothing is impossible in Him who believes.
Author/Speaker/President, Messenger International
My first meeting with Pastor Sunday Adelaja in October 2004 was supernatural as we met at a church service in Orlando under rather unusual circumstances. Immediately, Pastor Sunday felt the unction of the Spirit of God to spend some time with me while he was in the USA, and to encourage my heart regarding some personal issues in my life. I accepted, and we met for a couple of hours with some other friends at my home in Tampa. Pastor Sunday spoke great wisdom into my life and invited me to travel to the Ukraine for the 11th Birthday Celebration and to speak to a leadership Seminar with some of the Pentecostal leaders. This trip was one of the most significant times I have ever experienced in all the years that I have been in full time ministry. Not only was I impacted by the fire’ of the Spirit that is burning in the Ukraine but also by the most precious and wonderful hospitality and love of the people. I was privileged to stay in the home of a family in the church and even celebrate my birthday ‘Ukrainian style’! Pastor Sunday is truly a remarkable man of God who will impact this world, in a different way in these last days. The celebration was powerful and 1 enjoyed my time with the Pentecostal leaders that I came to love. I look forward to returning to the Ukraine in 2006 at the special invitation of Pastor Sunday and Bose. I am honored and privileged to be a part of this amazing ministry that is changing the lives of thousands upon thousands of precious people not only in the Ukraine but also in many other countries of the world.
