Bro Ben Bassey the Founder and the Leader of the Ministry of the Word (MOW) has been a passionate lover of the undiluted and unadulterated word of God from childhood, and is very committed to the diligent obedience of the word of God, as a basis for enjoying divine health. He graduated from the School of the Disciples, of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in March 2009 and is a spiritual health counsellor within the body of Christ. He ministers the undiluted word of God freely to people on charity basis. He was baptised in the Holy Spirit on 10 February 2008. He is very passionate about true spirituality, righteousness, holiness, goodness, kindness , compassion, honesty, openness and transparency as the basis for life and health prosperity. He promotes spirituality as a key factor in maintaining mental stability. He is a true disciple of Christ, a priest, prophet, preacher, minister, an evangelist, an ambassador, a missionary, a spiritual health counsellor and a teacher of the undiluted word of God. He is a strong defender of the Truth. He writes regularly on True Spirituality and the Good News gospel . His life is a living example of Amazing Grace of God in Christ Jesus. He is married to Iyobosa, a registered Paediatric nurse, also very passionate about the word of God. Their marriage has been blessed with three lovely girls, Princesses Esther, Victoria and Daniella.
By way of declaration and disclosure, despite being a strict follower of our Lord Jesus Christ and True Spirituality, Bro Ben Bassey is a highly spiritual person and believe very strongly in religious tolerance and having respect for practitioners of other faiths. As part of his spirituality drive, he purchased his first Quran about 1995 while training as a psychiatrist in the UK. He has not only read the Quran, but has also read other spiritual books and materials on Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Silkhism, Taoism as well as the Book of the Mormon etc. Knowledge gained from these materials has greatly enhanced his spiritual awareness, spiritual work and understanding; this has been very beneficial with regard to supporting patients of other faiths who have mental health issues. Bro Ben Bassey is of the strong view that religious intolerance and spiritual ignorance are two major reasons for the lack of love and frequent conflicts amongst individuals as well in our various nations.
Bro Ben Bassey does his spiritual work on charity basis. He is very much against the corruption of the word of God with money within the Church, especially the ‘great’ preachers collecting money from their poor members through cajoling, manipulation and exploitation. This was NOT what Jesus was doing when he was on earth. Rather, while on earth Jesus preached the good news gospel of repentance and fed those that made contact with him. It’s unfortunate that people are using the house of God for money making.
