Good-day Sir, we feel indeed privileged to interview you
WHAT IS YOUR NAME?
My name is Pastor Damian Echesurum Uzoruo.
CAN YOU PLEASE GIVE US YOUR BRIEF BIOGRAHPY?
I am an indigene of Abba, in Nwangele Local Gorvernment Area of Imo state. I am born into Uzoruo’s Family. I lost my father in 1969, during the Biafra/Nigeria Civil war. My
mother is Rhoda Nwanna Duru Uzoruo in her nineties now and is still waxing strong and sound in health. I have a brother by name Martin Nwaoziri Uzoruo, and a sister Mrs. Lizzy Obinna Rufus Obasi.
I am married to a loving, caring and God-fearing wife, Evangelist Olanike Uzoruo whom I call my Dove. We are blessed with a son by name Divine Wisdom, Oluwashina Nwaoziomachukwu, Chimnecherem Uzoruo.
WHAT WAS YOUR PROFESSION BEFORE YOU WERE CALLED BY GOD?
Pastor Damian Uzoruo was once a trader as well as a trained and practicing general merchandise business man. My case was not exactly like that of Saul, who was an academician and a persecutor of Christians in defence of Judaism. Mine was more or less like the case of Elijah and Gideon, seeking and looking unto God from my humble corner for His marvelous will to be done in my life. However, Saul who later became Apostle Paul served God to the end as well as other great men of God. It is also my prayer that He grants me more grace and power to serve Him till the end.
IN WHAT WAY DID GOD CALL YOU, WAS IT BY DREAM, REVELATION, DIVINE DIRECTION or TRANCE ETC?
I can say it was by divine direction. I was dissatisfied with the attitude of some Christians at that time. However I met a man of God who not only preached what was true, but was also being used by God. Out of curiosity, I got into close chat with him. He invited me for a church service and when I saw what God was doing through him, I made up my mind. Though God had earlier revealed the name “KING’S” to me but I didn’t understand it then. After some months later the man of God unveiled the name of the church as “KING’S FAMILY CHURCH”. It was basically by divine direction that I was led to that man of God in confirmation to the revelation I had earlier on.
WHAT REALLY LED YOU INTO ESTABLISHING A CHURCH/MINISTRY AND WHAT BASES WAS THAT?
Let me quickly say that I did not set out to start a Church. We only had a Christian Group that gathered for prayers, praising and worshipping God ( (Hebrew 10:22-25). We just operated as a prayer band and we praised and worshipped God. Things started manifesting beyond human understanding, with signs and wonders following. This was however after I had received genuine salvation while in The King’s Family Church. I have always loved serving God in fullness, but the issue of opening a church or ministry was not contemplated at all. This was mainly because what I thought it needs to do such was not just there. God actually proved to me that indeed He uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.( 1Cor.1: 27). It was the prayer meeting that metamorphosed into a ministry
SIR, HOW DID YOU COME ABOUT THE NAME “DIVINE MAJESTY WORSHIP MINISTRY”?
When God starts leading a person He makes it very clear and concise. I went visiting my uncle by name Elder Emmanuel Ugwokegbe in his office to share with him my divine calling and series of experiences I had with God as well the word ‘DIVINE’ which kept coming to my spirit repeatedly, then we started checking and merging names till we arrived at the most suitable one. “Divine Majesty Worship Ministry” and I consented to the name. As we worshipped Him, He proved worthy of the title “DIVINE MAJESTY” with great wonders and power.
WHAT IS THE VISION OF THIS GREAT MINISTRY?
No human effort can match God’s direction! God’s vision for this ministry is great; but since it is His, whatever I say now maybe a limitation.
WHAT IS YOUR TESTIMONY (IES) TODAY, AS AN ATTESTATION OF GOD’S ANOINTING AND CALLING UPON YOUR LIFE AND THIS MINISTRY?
Well when God is involved in a business he sure backs it up by confirming with signs following as well; people attest also to it. Again the best thing that can happen to one is the grace to establish what he says. You may not be what I call charismatic but the grace for Him to endorse every pronounced word you make is often needful.
LOOKING INTO THE FUTURE SIR, WHAT HEIGTH DO YOU EXPECT THIS MINISTRY TO ATTAIN, SAY IN 10 (TEN) YEARS FROM NOW?
When a vision is given to a person the fulfilling of the vision does not only lie on a person but requires teamwork and God will take the person as high as he can get. Why I said teamwork is because there are so many things he has said which have not yet come to pass and that is not to say it will not come pass.
SIR, DO YOU HAVE ANY IMMEDIATE PLAN TO ESTABLISH THIS MINISTRY IN THE WESTERN WORLD?
Yes, by His grace as we progress, not just the western world but all over the world as the spirit leads.
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE SIR FOR DELIVERANCE SEEKERS ALL AROUND THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT COME TO DIVINE MAJESTY WORSHIP MINISTRY?
The hour has come to liberate the world from all oppression of the devil, through deliverance, preaching of the Word of Faith. My advice to deliverance seekers is that God is still in the business of delivering his people. Most importantly, is the maintaining of our deliverance which is the uttermost for anybody that wants to be successful in life; also if rapture takes place such a person is sure.
IS THERE ANYTHING LIKE TRIBALISM?
That is why I said one can have a vision, when we work as a team each person discovers his/her ability, put heads together and move forward. Tribalism is no barrier. Yes even in the western world the Church Pastored by black is dominated by blacks same goes to the whites. The truth is that our mind set is what matters in the real sense of it. God started with a family: example Moses from the Levite. Later he said every first son should be given to him. If I am Igbo it will be more dominated by Igbo vice-versa Yoruba. The truth is if you focus on God he will tell you where to be but a lot of people are looking for position, money and personal interest.
FINALLY SIR, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR GREATEST JOY?
My greatest joy will be that He is happy with the ministry from time to time, till Jesus comes. Even after me, God will continue to say I am happy with the ministry.
Today, to God’s glory, Pastor Damian is not only a prolific writer. He is also a teacher, and deliverance minister. His passion is to point men/women to Jesus Christ and His word.
Sir, we appreciate the audience granted to us for this interview.
