Mofe-Damijo Avoids Pastoral Call
Mofe-Damijo revealing a true story on his a Instagram page wrote, “There was a time when for every other day or week, somebody would tell me they had a dream where they saw me as a pastor. Having taught Sunday school for over 15 years it was not far-fetched
“Besides every perceived Bad Boy is supposed to end up in full-time ministry right? So, what did I do? Run!
“I’ve avoided the pulpit with trepidation. But just like Jonah, I continue to end up somehow in the belly of the calling where I have played a pastor or reverend father more than anything else in my acting life.
“God does have an amazing sense of humour. I’m not even sure as I write this if I’ve fully escaped the CALL!
“To date, I still frighten myself every time I’ve had to speak in a church because when I take the pulpit, the Holy Spirit takes over.
“And so once again I embark into a world of make-believe where I play yet another man of God. I invite you on this epic cinematic journey into the spirit realm!”
