I Was Fondly Called a "Church Girl' Growing Up, The Esthers' Fellowship Abuja Founder, Pastor Justina Daniel Reveals
Pst. Justina I. Daniel is a graduate from the prestigious Kaduna State Polytechnic Tudunwada, Kaduna State, where she came out with ND Fine arts. She started ministry from an early age where she was fondly called a “Church girl”.
Born in Kaduna state, the last child from a family of ten children, growing up with her parents in Kaduna gave her a solid Christian background. She belonged to a young Christian dance group known as “Kingdom Dancers” in the Household of Love church where she served for fourteen years and as the group’s team leader
Pst Justina I Daniel knew early in life about her desire and calling into ministry that she willingly allowed the Holy Spirit to manifest through her, using her to affect lives she has come in contact with all through the years.
She was inspired by the Holy Spirit in 2006 to start a small prayer and mentoring group that caters for families as well as newly married couples, enlightening them on what marriage should be through God’s word with the help of invited guest speakers.
In her words “God originally knew that two is better than one that is why He created marriage. The bible says “That one shall chase a thousand and two, ten thousand to flight” therefore tremendous power is made available in the place of marriage.
The key to a successful marriage is through prayer. Like the Bible says “when the foundation is weak what can the righteous do”. Women ought to pray without ceasing for their marriage”.
What started from a group of three women in her living room grew to become what is known today as “The Esthers’ Fellowship, Abuja”. It is ten years gone and God has not ceased working miracles and restoring homes through same fellowship.
She is married to Pst. Daniel Hassan Ekpa and they are blessed with three lovely children.
