The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has unveiled its football club, Dove FC.
General Overseer of RCCG, Pastor E.A. Adeboye, unveiled the club at the Redeemed Camp in Lagos State at the weekend as part of the church’s evangelism campaign to bring the youth out of criminality.
The players were selected from the six regions of the country and are between the ages of 16-21 to prepare them for a possible professional career.
Speaking at the event, Pastor Adeboye admonished the players to deemphasize money to the service of God.
Adeboye stated that “Winning is by God’s divine and not by might. To be a winner, you must have God by your side.”
Prince Dapo Ajibade, the chairman of Dove FC, also explained that the establishment of the team is for the church to break new ground.
“By the special grace of God and with the support of the GO, Dove FC will expand to become the biggest brand in the world,” he said.
