The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor E.A Adeboye conducted the May edition of their communion service on Thursday night, this came after the death of his son, Dare, on Wednesday.
Dare Adeboye died in his sleep in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was based with his family. During his Communion message, Pastor Adeboye spoke about the importance of the bread and wine of the Holy Communion.
The sermon was aired from RCCG’s owned Dove Media, while members of his church congregated in the auditorium along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway and around the world watched him.
He said, “The bread multiplied in the hands of the disciples, as you receive the bread, it will multiply in your hands.”
Adeboye did not address the passing of his son. After the sermon, another officiating minister said, “Our Daddy has prayed for us. He was supposed to be here physically but due to circumstances beyond his control, he couldn’t make it.”
