From a humble background in the Southern part of Kaduna State, Apostle Emmanuel Kure has risen to bestride the state and nation like a colossus, among other contemporary men, ecclesiastically engaged with dispensing hope, spiritual awakening and moulding the character of a nation hovering on the edge of moral depreciation.
The emergence of Kure on the physical and spiritual scene of Kaduna state, especially the Southern part is akin to when Philip in John Chapter 1 verse 45 said to Nathaniel, “we have found him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophet, wrote – Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” But Nathaniel in verse 46 said to him, “can anything good come out of Nazareth? Philip said to him, “come and see.”
Sometimes, when people hear that Kure’s emphatic and deliberate interventions in the lives of Nigerians, has its headquarters in Kafanchan, the local government capital of Jema’a , a lot wonder how that came to be possible. In their thought, such a huge spiritual force, depositing valuable life principles in the lives of countless people, should be headquartered in the state capital or the bustling capital city of Abuja.
But Kure, who has been able to define the fact that believing in the strength of an idea whose time has come can only get strengthen by a thousand obstacles, has been able to make serious impact on the lives of millions of Nigerians.
This has seen him rise to become the National Secretary and member of National Advisory Board of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN); African Ambassador/Covening Apostle of Global Spheres International Apostolic Network, led by Apostle Chuck Pierce and Dr. Peter C. Wagner in the US; National Advisor, Women Aglow International, Nigeria; Board Member, Redeemers University, Lagos, Nigeria; Member, Arewa Elders Forum; and Board Member, Nigerian Coalition of Apostles, Nigerian Chapter of the International Coalition of Apostles (ICA).
But the springboard to such height remains his Throneroom (Trust) Ministry, Kafanchan, Kaduna state where he is the vision pioneer.
The Throneroom is a prayer and missions ministry with prayer towers (branches) and Churches within and outside Nigeria, including the United States of America. The Ministry is involved in hospital community health projects, youth training, scholarship and empowerment and widows’ cooperatives. It has a craft centre, a rehabilitation centre for the persecuted, an orphanage and a bible school – the International School of Prophecy and Biblical Studies (ISPBS).
Throneroom Ministry has also been involved in community development, providing infrastructure around where the international headquarters is located and has been a major rallying religious centre for the people of Southern Kaduna and the nations of Africa and beyond.
A graduate of Bayero University, Kano, Kure was a Senior Lecturer at the Kaduna State College of Education, Kafanchan, Kaduna State before, acting on the Russian proverb that says ‘If you chase two rabbits, you will not catch either one,’ he resigned into full time ministry and since then, the Lord has been using him to massively impact on the lives of people of the state.
Of particular interest is his rehabilitation centre for the persecuted and the orphanage which has provided tremendous succour to the downtrodden, the castaways and the rejected of the society. He has been able to place smiles on the faces and bring hopes to the lives of those that the rehabilitation centre and orphanage caters to.
Constantly, seeking new grounds to conquer, Kure has been prophetically saying that, “God is moving us to take to the streets, to become his “voice” to the nations. We can no longer stay in the church and pray we must move out and speak to the forces that are attempting to take ‘ground’ in our cities and our nation.
As a result, we are asking God more and more, ‘where do you want us to go, and what do you want us to say?’ The purpose of the watchman is to see ahead of the projected end, and speak to the forces that be, what God intends for that place or situation.”
Apostle Kure has been involved with past five governments at the national level, giving spiritual counsel and directions and as a well-travelled minister of the gospel, both within and outside Africa, through him, millions today have emerged from the scourge of spiritual hopelessness, the better for it.
