Senior pastor of Word of Life Bible Church and National President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Ayo Oritsejafor, has just opened a new ultra modern 40,000 capacity church auditorium in Warri, Delta State.
It was gathered that the new auditorium which is tastefully furnished and fully air conditioned, was officially dedicated on January 1, 2014.
During the dedication service, Oritsejafor said the new structure was built in order to accommodate the overflow during church services and crusades.
According to a report by Encomium:
The new sanctuary dubbed, Place of Refuge Teaching Centre is magnificently situated very close to the church’s 40,000 capacity worship centre in Ajamimogah, Warri, Delta State. Sources revealed the new facility is to serve as a centre of teaching the gospel and also will be used for crowd overflow during Sunday services.
The new facility dedicated on Wednesday, January 1, 2014, is built to taste with walls and floor tiles, fully air conditioned and is said to be worth N50 million.
