Abel Damina (born on 29th August 1960) is a 62-year-old Nigerian pastor, televangelist, author, speaker, and entrepreneur. He is popular for being the founder of Abel Damina Ministries, a.k.a Power City International Church in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria.
Pastor Abel is one of the new generation preachers who preach “once saved, forever saved.” He is also known to be a controversial preacher, given the different views he holds on some biblical issues. What’s more, the man of God is a doting husband and father to his wife Racheal and three lovely children.
Pastor Abel Damina is from Kaduna State
Born on the 29th of August 1960 in Uyo, the capital city of Akwa Ibom State, Abel Damina originally hails from Lere in Saminaka Local Government Area of Kaduna State, the northern part of Nigeria.
He spent the bulk of his early life in Akwa Ibom State alongside his parents. There is no record of the schools he attended, but the man of God goes with a Dr. title which apparently means that he is well educated to the level of bagging a doctorate degree.
He Founded Abel Damini Ministries in 1992
According to pastor Abel, he received the vision to start up his ministry in 1992 and since then has been striving effortlessly towards fulfilling the vision. He said that God gave him these words; “feed my sheep, for they are hungry; I’m raising a quality people who will stand their ground and not fail me”. Hence, it was the total submission and obedience to the calling that birthed Power City International Church which has been touching lives on a global scale.
A year after he founded his church, he hosted what happened to be the first apex service in Apex Cinema Hall, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State. Abel Damina Ministries has its headquarters at 98 Nwaniba Road, Uyo. The church has an ultra-modern state-of-the-art facility that seats over 5,000 persons. Running three services every Sunday, Pastor Damina dishes out the word of God to his congregation with power, impartation, and insight.
Further, Power City International Church owns a cable TV station known as Kingdom Life Network. This is a popular Christian satellite TV that is described as the fastest-growing television network which covers many parts of Africa, the Middle East, Canada, Europe, North America, and Asia.
Moreso, pastor Abel is the host of the everyday TV and radio program Righteous Invasion Of Truth [R.I.O.T.]. He is the host of The International Charismatic Ministers’ Association (ICMA), a platform that is focused on providing and covering resources for gospel ministers across the globe. Dr. Abel was once the National Chairman of the Pentecostal Fellowship Of Nigeria Youth Wing.
Meanwhile, the Akwa Ibom-based pastor is a well-known grace preacher who strongly believes that a Christian is saved for eternity once he accepts Jesus Christ and his finished work on the cross of Calvary. He has, over time, been embroiled in controversies given this belief and other suggestive teachings with which he feeds his flock.
Again, one of the most controversial preachings of pastor Abel is that sin cannot take a Christian or believer to hell fire. He also preaches against tithing. According to him, anybody that encourages tithing renders the finished work of Christ on the cross of calvary useless.
