SAVING ARK CHRISTIAN MINISTRY
(As it was in the time of Noah, Genesis 6-9, Mathew 24:37-42)
ABOUT OUR PASTOR
O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar. You… are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, you know it completely, O LORD. You hem me in-behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there, your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast….Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:1-10,16)
At the age of 5,the gifts of God upon the life of Pastor Chidi Onyesonwu began to manifest: He prayed for the sick and they were healed;He prayed for the barren and they conceived;etc.’Father’ IE. Rev Father took over his name till this day because of the wondrous miracles God did through him.
At 9,he realized he was naked like Adam and Eve. He started shying away from the people;He no longer prayed for them. God dealt with him to the extent he became good for nothing even in school. He failed the Common Entrance Examination. He failed the First School Leaving Certificate Examination. As a result,his father wanted him to learn carpentry. But he realized himself and prayed to God for divine mercy and wisdom,so that he could go to school to become a priest. Miraculously, God intervened and he went back to school. He became extra-ordinarily brilliant. He passed all his exams to the glory of God-the Giver of Wisdom.
He could have enrolled in a seminary school in order to become a priest,but seminary education was too expensive as it was sponsored by parents not the Catholic Mission. In Secondary School,Paternoster Secondary School Ekwerazu, he was made the Chapel Prefect and the Spiritual Director.
In 1996,he surrendered to the Lordship of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in Faith Renewal Ministries International, Olodi Apapa Lagos. In 1997,he was baptized by immersion.
He was trained as a minister of God in 1999 at The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM) Obanikoro Lagos. That same year,he was baptized in the Holy Ghost.
Pastor Chidi Onyesonwu has a University degree in Business Administration (Lagos State University,Ojo). He is happily married to Pastor Mrs Chinyere Onyesonwu. And like Noah, favoured with three great sons: Abdiel Yagazie Chiemezie Chidi, Royal Chinomnso Chidi and Kadmiel Chizorom Chidi.
On the 20th of October,2006,God showed him SAVING ARK CHRISTIAN MINISTRY.Also,with a tabular inscription:’AS IT WAS IN THE TIME OF NOAH’ and ‘GO AND TELL MY PEOPLE THAT I AM COMING BACK SOON.’ The meaning was not clear to him,he went online to search on internet the meaning of Saving Ark. There was no result. That same night,in a dream,a Finger was pointing to him Genesis 6.The ‘Genesis 6’ became bolder as if there was a microscope. He woke up to check his Bible. Thus the birthing of the great ministry,Saving Ark Christian Ministry! On that 21st of October;his birthday!!!
God has been very Faithful to him. He uses every available tool to preach the gospel: The internet, the tracts,etc. He preaches in schools,hospitals,various churches and crusades and souls have been returning to Jesus Christ. More so,the sick people have received their healing;The barren have conceived;So many miracles to the glory of God the Father. He has also worked with different Redeemed Christian Church of God,(RCCG) parishes in Abuja.
A man of God with great passion for Souls. He diligently and of course by the Special Grace of God guides people to that CITY whose Builder and Maker is Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!
By the special grace of God,Pastor Chidi Onyesonwu is the Presiding Pastor and the Gate-Keeper,Saving Ark Christian Ministry World Wide.
