Yul Edochie, a Nollywood actor, has declared his desire to take on pastoral responsibilities.
He claims that the time is now for him to carry out his role as a minister of God.
The actor confessed he felt called to serve as a minister of God “many years ago” in a video posted on his YouTube website, but decided it was not the proper time.
Yul Edochie claimed that recently, the calling has grown stronger. The actor continued, realizing that God had given him success so he could utilize it to spread the gospel and change lives.
After “miraculously” escaping death in a “ghastly auto crash” in 2019, the actor added that he believes God offered him a second chance to live and preach the gospel.
“I have a calling to serve God and be his minister of God. I have a calling to be a preacher of God, to preach the word of God through action. I have had this calling a long time ago actually, many years ago,” he said.
“But I always felt the time has not come or the timing wasn’t right. But now, it’s very strong. I feel the time has come. God has blessed me in this life and by the grace of God, I have become one of the biggest and most celebrated actors in Nigeria and Africa.
“I have realised God lifted me as an actor so I can become one of his ministers and use that fame to preach the world of God. My purpose in life is to become a minister of God and touch lives.”
