Having been properly trained and skillfully equipped in eleven different vocations, a total of 397 youth Nigerians were graduated by the Daystar Skill Acquisition Programme on Friday February 14, 2014.
Keeping to its vision of raising role models in the society, Daystar Christian Centre held a memorable graduation ceremony for the 13th set of the Daystar Skill Acquisition Programme (DSAP) at the church’s Main Auditorium, Plot A3C, Ikosi Road, Oregun Ikeja, Lagos.
It was a joy-filled day as the graduating students leaped in happiness having been empowered with new skills in different crafts such as Makeup, Photography, Web-Design, Graphics, Sewing, Generator Repairs, Shoemaking, Beads-Making, Cake-Making, Pastries and the likes.
Speaking to the grandauds, senior pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, Sam Adeyemi, ably represented by associate pastor Kenny Folarin charged participants to make the best of their newly acquired skills toward adding great value to the Nigerian and the world in general.
“The skills you have learnt here can take you to places you never expected if put to good use. The money you’re looking for is in meeting people’s needs, and it is skill acquisition that helps us to solve people’s problems.” he said. Pastor Kenny Folarin also challenged the participants to strive to be the best. “Please don’t underestimate the skills you’ve acquired as there are millionaires all over the world who live on what you’ve learnt,” he concluded. He also appreciated the entire DSAP team and facilitators as led by Pastor Bolutife Aje and Mrs. Toyin Olusola, for investing their time in building people.
Sharing her DSAP experience, Bukola Oyedokun, one of the Makeup Class graduands, said impact of the training was beyond her expectations. “Although I’m not a member of Daystar, I came around to learn makeup because of my love for it, and I was literally blown away at what I was able to learn and do within two weeks. It’s been an empowering experience and may God continue to bless this church.”
