For those that are not physically or spiritually closed to Bishop Isaac Idahosa, the Presiding Bishop of Godfirst Ministries International (a.k.a Illumination Assembly) would quick to criticize his social media postings as a “worldly clergy”. Anyway it is described; Bishop Idahosa is just a product of social media evangelism that has what it takes to win souls for Christ. Only few clergies still know the relevance of social media evangelism and other forms of media to reach out to souls across the globe.
