PLATFORMS

MINISTERING: PASTOR TOLU OKUSANYA
Materiality does not answer the quest for relevance
The life of a man does not consist in the abundance of resources
A platform is an opportunity or a place where you are allowed to express what you carry
Having ability and an innate skill is one thing but it does not constitute a platform outside opportunities
God has a global scale for you. He wants you to engage all you have and that’s what platforms do

Your ability and your skills will connect you to opportunities that will give you a platform
Your skill must find an opportunity for you to have a platform where you can showcase what you can

A platform makes you heard, a platform makes you seen, a platform makes you known 
If you don’t have a platform, you can not make an impact

Until you get to your platform, your impact can not be felt by anyone

Every platform engages.
