Happy World Virginity Day!!!

HAPPY WORLD VIRGINITY DAY!!! @mineministry

“Father, we thank You for this revolution of sexual purity. We are grateful for the hearts of young men and women that You are turning back to You. We rejoice because immorality loses its hold on this generation.
We are excited for the strength You’re giving virgins to hold on and be proud to be, honouring You with their bodies. We thank You for Your love engulfing those of us who have made mistakes, restoring us to peace, joy and a life free of guilt.
Jesus, we thank You for Your sacrifice that has redeemed us all back to God and we can all boldly declare that we are #unashamed
We are forgiven, we are empowered, we are focused, and we are change agents.
Holy Spirit, we rest in Your power in us to keep us from falling and to help us lift others who fall. We trust You to make everyone see the love of Christ and see beyond their struggles.
Thank You for this successful 8th edition of WVD.
WE LOVE YOU LORD!!!”

World Virginity Day 2018

WVD 2018 Updates

We are 37 days away from our celebration of sexual purity (Saturday, June 9th, 2018).

World Virginity Day is a movement, encouraging virgins to rise above victimization and intimidation (they are not alone) and encouraging non-virgins to choose celibacy.

We are simply restoring the dignity of sexual purity before and after marriage, honouring God, ourselves and our spouses (future and present). This is the 8th edition (we started this movement in 2011).

For this year, please note the following:
1. The National Venue would be at UNILAG Indoor Sports Complex, estimated to sit about 2,500 people.
2. We would be having the event at different locations concurrently within and outside Nigeria. Locations would be posted in the following days. For enquiries on locations near you, please reach Mr Aremo on 08032446129
3. We would be releasing picture and video promos soon. To be involved in our media publicity, please reach Dabest on 07033629543
4. Shirts for this year are available. Please visit http://www.mineteenageministry.com/virginityday/ to pay for your shirt(s) or reach Bobo directly on 08088579245
5. If you are into sewing and want to sew and/or donate flags of nations for the flag procession, please reach Pastor Titi on 08024341167 (we would be praying over all nations of the world, asking God for a purity revival among our young people)
6. We are publishing 17 editions of MINE Magazine (the most widely read faith-based magazine for teens in Nigeria) to be distributed FREE before, during and after WVD (17,000 copies)

We remain #unashamed

God bless us all. Timi Adigun. IC, MINE TM

​Celebrating five years of LOVE!

I guess I’m a very emotional person and today brings back many memories that I would love to share, memories I am proud of. Please ensure you read all the way until you see my sign out:)
Today, Monday October 17th, 2016 makes it exactly five (5) years MINE Bible Study started. We started Monday, October 17th, 2011 at Yeshua High School. YHS has been a tremendous blessing to MINE TM. God bless YHS. And God bless the proprietress, my mother, Mrs. Sinmisola Adigun. I love you, mum. 😚

We started with about about ten  (10) people on that Monday evening and we have grown since then. Many of the State Coordinators we have, in Abeokuta, Ado-Ekiti, Akungba, Lagos, Ogbomoso, Jos, Benin, US, Ghana, and more were tutored in the Word at MINE Bible Study. God has RAISED giants in the Kingdom in the past five years. Halleluyah!

I remember telling my wife, four months into our marriage that we were going to start Bible Study, and my ever supportive wife said it was fine with her. I explained the vision to her and she caught the fire. She missed the initial days because of her schedule at work but she caught up on the gist. By the way, God used the book, “In the footsteps of a prophet”, by Jerry Savelle to start me on this journey. And here we are today.

Amazing testimonies have been shared over the years on the power of and in the Word of God. Many teenagers, young adults (some married now) have been literally TRANSFORMED by their time in BS. It has become a ‘seminary’ for some and a “family” to ALL.

Thousands have passed through MINE Bible Study across the world and are doing exploits in career, business, family and ministry. All praise to God! 

Do you know Toyo Baby is a product of MINE BS! God is raising Kingdom Giants!!!


The interesting thing about MINE BS is the love we enjoy. There were many times, that at the end of BS, envelopes were shared with cash in, ranging from N1k per person and above. Everybody present on those numerous occasions went home with money that would have made their families laugh and rejoice. EVERYONE! 

The sad truth is, no matter what you do, people would still criticise you. So, stop trying to please everyone. Do what you know is right before God and man!

One of the attendees told me that after she took her envelope (seed sown by ministry) home that her mother said it was “jazz”. We were using the money we gave out for diabolic things. Can you imagine that! Can’t people actually do things in this world for FREE without any ulterior motives? We just wanted to put smiles on faces o!!!

Back to the gist…and for the past five years, we have cooked and served food EVERY FRIDAY (our fasting day) to break our fast. By the way, BS was EVERY week day. We just excluded Wednesdays this year when Evening of Worship began. So, we cook Jollof Rice and meat every week. The welfare team freestyles and makes beans sometimes to the delight of the guys… lol But everybody goes home fed.

When The Ark started in 2012, we decided every Sunday would be feeding day too. So, we feed every Sunday at The Ark. So, that’s cooking and feeding twice a week. I’ve been challenged by some people on this but I ask myself, What Would Jesus Do?

I KNOW, I’m not guessing or postulating, I KNOW that many families go back home after Sunday services in their churches to an empty house and no food, after probably giving their last kobo as offering! Why am I so sure of this? I and my wife have been there. No food at home, yet giving our best in church. What if we were guaranteed a good meal and a free ride by a “wealthy couple” in church.

And in that same congregation, where members are hungry, are people with billions in their accounts who are recognised in church because of their big tithe. The world may honour the wealthy and give special places to them but that shouldn’t be so in the church of Jesus na!!!

So, we decided that every body who comes on Friday and Sunday would be GUARANTEED a good and healthy meal. This was not a publicity stunt but from hearts that understood pain.

The early church wasn’t building edifices at the expense of the Word and Lives. NO!!! Many church buildings in some countries have been sold to clubs and gambling houses after bankruptcy. What if they had invested more in lives. What if???

We, in MINE TM, follow the early church’s foundation of being given to “The Word and Prayer” and “No one had need”.

We study the word, we fast, we pray, we feed, we love on each other. We don’t compete with each other or brag about our latest acquisitions. That’s not the church Jesus died for! That’s a “show house”.

All we do in BS, is just one part o, World Virginity Day is there, same as MINE Magazine, MINE Forums across Nigeria , MINE Charity Outreach, BALL, The MEET, and more! 

I hope you don’t see this as bragging but if you do, I can’t help that. We have been called to LOVE. Let’s look away from ourselves. You’re so concerned about your children  alone. Why not also help other children and allow God honour your sacrifices by taking care of your children in ways you can never do as a human. Can you stop your child from being sick or having an accident or getting addicted? But God can! Sow seeds into the lives of others! 

Today, as MINE BS celebrates five years of the Word and of Love, I ask that you please pray for us as God keeps using us to raise a new generation.

If you’re reading this and you’ve ever attended BS, please do me two favours:

1. Please share this post (buttons beneath the post)

2. Please post a comment beneath on how God has blessed you through BS. All the glory goes to Him.

If you’re reading and have never attended, you could join us any day you’re free, weekdays (except Wednesdays) at 4pm. Presently at 11, Baale street, off Adebowale street, Ojodu, Lagos. You could also join us for Evening of Worship on Wednesdays at 5:30pm.

Finally, I ask as we celebrate five (5) years of impacting lives, spiritually emotionally and physically, that you please give your best gift, sow your best seed to support this ministry.

My resting place!

On Thursday, October 11th 2012, sometime around 6pm, I was driving back home for MINE Bible Study on our then bumpy street, when God told me words that brought tears out of my eyes. I felt like acting like I did not hear Him but I could not. I know when I hear God and that evening, I HEARD GOD. The tears stung my eyes. I was taken aback. He said to me, “Start ME a church for teenagers.”

Why did I tear up? Because I DID NOT EVER want to start a church. I had told people in my university days that I would NEVER start a church, saying “There are enough churches already” and I still think so. I always said, “Find a church that believes what you believe and join. You don’t have to start your own.” I was totally against the springing up of new churches everywhere; I felt it further divided the beautiful body of Christ! But here I was with an instruction I could not ignore.

When I got home, I told my wife. Thank God for giving me the best wife in the world; TOTALLY SUPPORTIVE. We prayed together and trusted for God’s leading and direction. I told family, starting from parents (on both sides) and siblings. I also told my pastor, Pastor Noruwa Edokpolo.

I was skeptical to go to my pastor because I remember vividly that he called me someday and asked if I was ever going to start a church and I said an emphatic NO. Because as at then, I was sure it was a NO. I told him and he gave his permission.

Note, a couple of people were of the opinion that I should take months or few years to be sure BUT I am a “quick-to-obey soldier of the cross”. I knew what God had told me to do and I was going to do it IMMEDIATELY.

We (my wife and I) were going to obey God but we did not have ANY MONEY to do it. So, I told God I was not going to move a finger until He sent someone to give us a land or hall or cash. I told Him it was His show to provide since He was the one asking we begin a church. That was where I was in my mind until I attended another MINE Bible Study.

By the way, we hold bible studies every week day; we’ve been doing that for over four (4) years now. I went for bible study, and I allowed one of my daughters, Omowunmi Sodimu to take the study. As she was teaching about Abraham, I heard God speak to me and say, “Just like Abraham, I need you to obey ‘blindly’. Go and look for a place for the church” (paraphrased).

So, after that Bible Study (thankfully I did not take the car that day), I began my “Abrahamic trek”. I walked for several minutes, checking different places until I got to an event center, Deborah Lawson Event Place at Omole, Lagos, Nigeria.

It was about 7pm but as God would have it, the Facility Manager was still in. Long story cut short, she drafted an agreement with us after my wife and I went back the following day for negotiations. I would leave out the amount they were charging for a quarter but it was HUGE. The money my family and the ministry had (combined) was not up to 1/20th of what was needed just for 3 months. But we believed God wanted us to have the place.

Cutting the story short again, 2 days to the expiry date of the agreement (time we were to have deposited), I got a call to see someone. God used the person to bless The Ark (name of the church) and start us up. Please note: WE DID NOT BEG ANYBODY OR SOLICIT FUNDS. GOD, BY HIMSELF, PROMPTED THIS PERSON. HALLELUYAH!!!

We paid for the quarter, bought equipments and were ready to go. We met at our house for the first service on Sunday, December 2nd, 2012, then moved to Deborah Lawson on Sunday January 6th, 2013. We’ve since moved thrice (3ce) and believe God the next move would be to “Our own resting place”.

Lives have been blessed in tremendous ways and God has been faithful. Why did I post this?

  1. To give glory to God for His faithfulness
  2. To let people who criticised us know that we were not acting in flesh but in Obedience to the Master of the Universe.

And most importantly, 3, to tell someone who is reading this, “IF GOD SAID IT, HE WILL BRING IT TO PASS!”

Please don’t be overwhelmed by a decision you feel God leading you to make. He doesn’t set up His children only to embarass them. No! He remains faithful to His word and promise.

TAKE THAT LEAP OF FAITH TODAY! Sow that seed! Change that location! Ask out that person! Quit that job! Take up that job! Visit that ‘offender’! Cancel that debt!

Whatever God is asking to do, please DO!

Thank you for taking the time to read. If it blessed you, you could write a comment. And if you have not followed this blog yet, please do.

I love you! Together, in obedience to God, we WILL WIN!
