Born Great Academy is a child of necessity -—Rev Anthony

General Overseer of Kings in Christ Power Ministry, Rev. Chidi Anthony, speaks on the Born Great Academy that he is about to establish and the just concluded programme of the church, entitled, “Greater than the Pool of Bethsaida,” in this Interview with Correspondent Emmanuel Clement
Sir, tell us about “Born Great Academy”
Born Great Academy is a school that is established to help some parents who cannot afford to train their children in expensive schools. We discovered that there are people in the church today who are intelligent; we wouldn’t want their destinies to be wasted that are why we decided to introduce Born Great Nursery, Primary and secondary schools to help the less privilege obtain quality education.
Many motherless baby homes we see today were built by Catholic and Anglican churches to help the less privileged ones and orphans. Check any school being built by some orthodox churches, you will be able to train your child.
Most of the schools being built by the most Pentecostal churches even the pastors in the same church cannot afford to train their children in the school. Now, I have come with a different version to help people who cannot afford a qualitative education to make it affordable.
We are going to create an avenue whether you have money or not we will hep you.
Pool of Bethsaida has finally ended, sir can you compare this year Pool of Bethsaida to the previous ones?
Not at all, there is no how you can compare it, we increase everyday, I strongly believe that in the Ministry in everyday we moved to the next level. This is just 5 years vision and yearly programme. The first one was done in Ajao Estate and it was wonderful, people came. The second edition was held in National Stadium, the third edition was held at Oshodi mini stadium, the turn out was very massive.
The fourth edition which was last year clashed with the election day and it affected the programme greatly because Nigerians were all scared of the outcome of the election, So the turn up was not too encouraging as expected. This just concluded edition was so powerful and there was increase in numbers as the day goes by.
In all the years of this programme, there have been increases and the publicity of this year was not really much though we branded more than 4 BRT as another way of advert for announcing the programme. The church was filled to outside and over four thousand participants were recorded everyday it was really a huge success. You don’t need to be told that the next time, we can’t hold such programme in this place because every where was filled up.
Sir, how would you access your guests’ ministers at this year’s event?
Right from day one God that gave me this vision, God has been the one directing me of who to invite, I don’t invite guest carnally, maybe out of friendship I might put your pictures in my posters/flyers but before the programme or during the course of the programme, you might be surprise I will call you and tell you don’t come, if you check in the flyers, you will find out that not all that appears there came or preaches. I don’t play with God’s order and I don’t compromise in the things of God, there is nothing like friendship. Its better you please God and displease men. When you are at peace with God even your enemy will always be at peace with you
Based on what happened this year, what is your expectation for next year’s Greater Than The Pool Of Bethsaida?
(Excited) let me tell you the practical truth, next year we are holding it at Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) that is where the next programme will be held because this church site will not contain us. Vision grows, I mean true vision, if the vision is of God, it grows, take it or you leave it, in fact as am talking to you from the middle of this year we will start working on the date and fixing of the venue for next year pool of Bethsaida.
Whatever God is blessing me with am putting it into the gospel. My TV Station is coming back; we will be on air by first week of May, with that TV station it will help in announcing the program more. TBS is where we are going for the next program. The first edition we did on “Pool of Bethsaida” it was not at this level but then we tagged it as a success. Like this just concluded edition, everybody was saying its powerful, its success. when we will do the next year’s edition, people will still appreciate it more than this year. My friend Bishop Idahosa will say “Everyday is a Plus”
Was there any recorded testimonies?
Ha! A lot of testimonies were recorded, countless of them, in fact this year Pool of Bethsaida was wonderful and outrageous. Healing and miracles took place that marvels me. Like the case of an imbecile young man called Lucky whom his uncle infected it on him for no just cause. This young man suffered for this imbecile for a year and 8 months till he miraculously found himself in the programme. He was ministered to, his problem was revealed and he got back his memory instantly. His uncle who did it to him ran mad immediately Lucky got his deliverance. Another case of a man who was poisoned, the man of God Rev. Chidi Anthony brought him out after his problem was revealed, he vomited out a live scorpion signifying the poison: A case of deaf and dumb, people that suffered for long time sickness which could lead to death got their healing. Countless of them to the glory of God.
What inspires you as a pastor to this school thing? How did you get the vision?
The vision had always been there, even in my house now, when you come to my house you will see a lot of people living with me, at times people think they are my relation, I don’t even know where most of them come from.
I have an orphan who is in university. There is this mentality we have that if you have maid, the highest thing you can do to the maid is for her to learn how to trade, learn saloon, tailoring etc that they are of low class and they are not qualify to have education. When you go to most Christians homes you don’t need to be told who their bonafide children, you will know it by their dressing.
You will also see some families their children will be in the best private schools while their maid will be struggling  in public schools I wanted to change their mentality that is why am bringing up this. I have people whom am paying their school fees in my house that I don’t even know where they come from or their village. There are some that I adopted and I train them to school, I have also given a lot of people scholarship though I don’t have money but I strive to do that, I think the best way that will help is if I start this school I want to affect lives and give it a meaning.
How do you intend to fund the school for the main time? It requires a lot of money.
I have never been a failure and anything I start I see the hand of God on it. He who has given me the vision will make a provision, because where there is a vision there is always a provision, and where there is a mission there is always a vision to accomplish the mission. So since it is God’s WILL it is God’s BILL,
God will fund it  after all the orphans are there, God is the father of the orphans, if he refuse to sponsor his own children then I withdraw , I know the hand of God is on me and God can never stop half way.
So where and when is the school commencing?
Born Great Academy School will be located at Kings in Christ Power Ministry at Jubilee close Ago Palace way Lagos. And the school will commence next term, September to be précised.
Sir, how many guest ministers were present at the Pool of Bethsaida
We have Prophet Tony Anthony, Prophet Favor Maduforo from Warri, Chinedu Nwadike, Prophet NC Mike, Praise Machine, Dan Ike (Battle Axe), Vivian Ejiofor, Bishop Ikeanokwuru from Port Harcourt. They all ministered powerfully and lives were transformed.
