PEM was established on September 9th, 1989 at Ibadan, Nigeria with
Dr. Yemi Adedeji as the visionary and president along with eight other
Christian friends. God randomly brought together nine of His children
on the ninth day of the ninth month of the year 1989. On that day
heaven opened over the venue of meeting it was prophesied that this
ministry would reach the ends of the world. During the years of 1997
and 1998, PEM was involved in village evangelism, Church planting and
development project in the beautiful Island of Saint Lucia. During
this period, food and clothing was freely given to the villagers and a
new Bible was given to every one who gave their life to the Lord.
Because some new converts could not read or write, PEM was involved in
signing them up for the adult literacy program organized by the
government. PEM was later established in the United States of America
on May 9th, 2000, having members and volunteer workers from different
churches and ministries who conduct and participate in the monthly
Reconciliation Power Outreach, annual Christian Singles Fellowship and
In 2 Corinthians 5:18 we read “And all things are of God, Who has
reconciled us to Himself by Christ Jesus, and has given to us the
ministry of RECONCILIATION.” PEM is therefore dedicated to revealing
the knowledge of the glory of the Lord to all nations. PEM has
organized outreaches and has been invited to minister in different
places including different parts of Nigeria, the Caribbean, Ireland
and several States in America. We are motivated to fully equip God’s
covenant children for enrollment in the end time army of God.
