DLCF OAU Gives Scholarship Awards To Indigent Students
The Deeper Life Christian Fellowship (DLCF), Obafemi Awolowo University chapter has awarded scholarships to indigent students and top performing academic students of the university.
Scholarships worth N650,000 were awarded to 12 students of OAU who are workers in the fellowship for varying reasons. Announcing the scholarship on Sunday, Pastor Bakare who is the Chairman of the Scholarship Committee said the fellowship was able to identify some of their members who are in need of financial assistance and the reason for this help. Donations for the scheme according to him came from ex-students who were indigent members of the fellowship during their days in school.
Olubunmi Deborah of the Department of Foreign Languages and Oluwafunke Kehinde Adeoye of Department of Management and Accounting both bagged the academic scholarships for the best performing identified students in the fellowship. Both of them with CGPA above 4.5 (first class). 10 indigent students were also given scholarships to assist them in their studies. This will be the second edition of the scholarship award as similar scheme held sometimes last year.
The Sunday service also saw the announcement of new set of leaders for the fellowship as the tenure of the previous executive members elapsed. Awojodun Bunmi Amos who previously served as an off-campus representative was announced as the new General Coordinator(GC) of the fellowship while Oyebade Simeon emerged as the new Assistant General Coordinator(GGC). One of the recipients of the academic scholarship award, Oluwafunke Kehinde Adeoye was also announced as the Sisters' Welfare Coordinator(SWC).
The Regional Overseer of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Ife Region, Pastor Ajala in his charge to the newly chosen leaders urged them to lead the fellowship in the fear of God and see this as a privilege to lead God's people. The Regional Coordinator of DLCF, Ife Region, had earlier appreciated the outgoing executives for their great service to God and thanked God that none of them backslided in the course of their services to God. "By the grace of God, we did not record any backsliding among them. There was love, unity among them"
