Goodnews Ministries is an indigenous ministry
located in Nigeria with its headquarters in Ejule, Ofu Local Government
Area of Kogi State.The Ministry came into being in the month of
May, 1988 with Evangelist Daniel O. Idih called and commissioned
by God as the head of this mandate. Thereafter he got married in
December of 1992 to his lovely wife, Evangelist (Mrs.) Grace I.
Idih, who is also called, commissioned and serving the Lord on a
full time basis.
Rev. Daniel Idih
" God's Word is God's total answer for man’s total need(s)".
Our vision is to take the total man; and training (or discipling)
them to be the followers of Christ. Thereafter, they are commissioned
as the needed solution to our generation.
for this generation is for an indepth all-compassing revivals (among
the Saints) and the harvest of souls and nations to the Lord.
ARMS OF THE MINISTRY
We believe that any soul is really within God's reach. So the act
of preaching the Gospel (either on a one-to-one or mass evangelism
basis) is mandatory to us. We therefore take the Gospel from place
to place (i.e. from village-to-village, city-to-city, school-to-school,
Church-to-Church etc.). We plan Gospel outreaches in areas God leads
us to and also in response to invitations.
This is a one-full day (24 Hours) strategic outreach programme to
unreached places, in company of Medical team, team of teachers and
giving helping hands to orphans, widows and the less privileged
ones like the disabled and the destitute. We reach such areas in
direct response to our personal survey or through invitations. This
is a programme of great and resultful interest, so if you interested
in any way, you may contact us rightway for further information
Deliverance / Healing Ministration
" .................In My name shall they cast out devils;…
they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover".
God has been so merciful to us in confirming His Word to us from
time to time and from place to place as we minister to simple and
complex demonic and health-related cases, ranging from individuals
to family and land deliverances.
In response to the mandate – “Heal, Deliver and Disciple”,
the sick, depressed, oppressed and possessed, the Gilead Lodge has
come to be in the ministry’s permanent site. Equally, because
some healing or deliverance cases has relatively slow processes
at times, this lodge stand at the advantage of such slow recipients
of these divine privileges. This is commonly seen among mad (lunatic)
and anxiety related cases.
Discipleship Training is God's means of concentrating believers
in Christ both for personal lifestyle and fruit-bearing service
to our King. In this respect, a systematic discipleship programme
is being put in place for believers from the first day thy accepted
Christ as their personal Saviour till they are nurtured to maturity.
Also, an Advanced Discipleship Training is available for those who
have graduated the elementary Discipleship programme. Presently,
we undertake a continuous Discipleship (Fellowship) programme on
a weekly basis (every Friday at 4:00 pm) at the National Headquarters
(G.R.A – God's Reservation Avenue, Ejule). Henceforth, the
following extension programmes will commence on an intensive basis.
- Distant Correspondence Discipleship Training (D.C.M); (Through
postage, Internet, etc.)
- Discipleship Through the Media; (Through audio/video tapes,
Radio, Television programmes)
Contact us now for details and support.
CHRISTIAN FAMILY LIFESTYLE
(A Marriage Enrichment Programme)
The Family is that special institutional unit where practical Christianity
is experienced on a day–to-day basis. In essence, one’s
overall success is pivoted on the pillars of a balanced marriage.
We believe that only God can properly set the solitary in family.
Also, God's Word has the potentials of making bad marriages good
and good ones better.
In CFL Department, special attention is given to singles (who are
mature enough to marry), the married couples, childhood and parenting; infact,
the family in whole. Our great expectation is to see God's mandate enforced in
every family in the society, especially in believer's homes. This is done through
specially arranged counselling, seminars (like Singles Aglow, Couples Retreat /
Convention(s) and "Teach them to Grow in Godliness' Seminars.
DOMINION ACADEMY INSTITUTE
(Center of Academic Excellence
and Strategic Studies)
Life to Life". The Goodnews Ministries presently embarks on creating the legacy of
a standard and qualitative education, with soul winning and training as our focal point.
The total man which comprises of the soul, spirit and body needs education and we are
duty-bound for this task.
Dominion Academy Institute comprises of five(5) major
The motto of the school is "EXCELLENT TRAINING FOR SELF-RELIANCE". We train students to
be self-reliant (while in school and after school). This is acheived through involving
them in extra-curricular trainings (like secretariate activities, computer science,
craft-work etc.). Students are actually trained to 'Do Things Themselves'.

- Thank God for granting us grace to know and serve Him in His
vineyard. The strength, health, protection and encouragements
hitherto has been so great.
- Pray that God should send more labourers into the work He
has committed into our hands. We need more grace, health, provision
etc. for all the ministry staff and their families.
- Pray for great and effectual doors to be opened to us in various
lands, denominations, institutions, groups, nations etc. We
have a deep sense of spiritual indebtedness to various places
that need our services on earth; only God can make the in-roads
as well as the provisions for such places available.
- We need standard outreach equipments (gadgets) like Public Address Systems (PAS),
Generator, Gospel Vans, Mobile Outreach Stage etc. Our Gospel Van (an old Niva 1600 Jeep) had a
serious accident quite some years now and since then, every effort to bring it back on road proved
abortive. We have really suffered a great setback as far as Gospel Outreaches are concerned.
- Gospel-on-Wheels has equally not functioned for about 3 years
now. The core reason is the fact stated above about our Gospel
Van. We are presently working modalities for the restoration
of this arm of the ministry. Please pray along with us that
God will mobilise us and provide materials (for shelter, clothing,
feeding, financing, education, medication) for free distributions
to orphans, widows and the less privileged ones in the society
as we take the total Gospel to them.
