“S.O.C!! You know the Team!!” – The Soldiers of Christ are the youth here at the Elpis Church community, who, through mentorship and in an atmosphere of love and acceptance, are transitioning into adulthood to become beacons of light in a society where the distinction between good and evil is fading at a very fast rate.
Dayo Oluwamuyiwa is the leader of the S.O.C and has been serving with great enthusiasm and passion since 2013. Leading by example, he teaches the significance and importance of having a genuine, raw, but beautifully pure relationship with the Holy Spirit. Pastor Victor K.A. Darteh is the overseer, to whom Dayo liaises to set the structure of every activity that pertains to the spiritual, emotional and physical development of the youth.
Dayo is also backed by a team of sub-leaders, who work alongside to support his work and to help the youth in various areas of their lives through a mentorship program, and these are: Lara Oluwamuyiwa, Matthew Darteh, Marjorie Diamond, Mark Acquaye and Catherine H. Attafuah. Their role is also significant in organizing and planning the major events that seek to support the youth in their pursuit of the Lord: The Agenda and Breaking Forth. Respectively, these are a monthly event and annual event, which aim at unfolding specific topics and issues that are of great concern to the young people; moreover, they seek to encourage them to walk out of their comfort zone and use their talents and gifts to draw their peers to the knowledge of the Lord and His relentless love.
