Pastor Mathew Ashimolowo- Senior Pastor of Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC)

Prosperity is the bye-products of an effective management of whatever God provides. No one has an investment on your personal life as you do. You never increase in anything you resent. The greatest illiterate is the inability to learn the great things of life from small things around. You can’t be the head if you are a mediocre.  Nothing is more beautiful and romantic than when provision and purpose kiss. - Pastor Mathew Ashimolowo
