He is a father to the fatherless, a source of hope to the hopeless, an encouragement to the devastated, through his unadulterated teachings of God's word, many has been liberated from their oppressors, the sick gets healed, the slaved free, the poor getting rich to live their destiny in Christ Jesus.
Presiding over an ever-widening network of Citadel of Praise Church International (CPCI), Pastor Immanuel is the founder of this great and unique ministry in which he serves as the Senior Pastor with love, humility and meekness.
He had his first encounter with the Lord Jesus in the year 1995 when he saw a revelation of Jesus seating in the midst of a large crowd, it was unexpected encounter to him considering the fact that he has a poor relationship with Jesus back then. Surprisingly, he was singled out from that crowd and Jesus called and chose him, but the encounter meant nothing to him with regards to his nonchalant relationship with Jesus. His ambition to become a business tycoon worsened his then uncharacteristic relationship with God and made him not to give a second thought to the vision.
Pastor Immanuel fully accepted Christ at Save the Lost Mission in the year 2000, and in 2006 the Lord spoke to him again concerning his calling though he has moved to Malaysia for the pursuit of greener pasture in the quest to expand his successful business empire. He accepted the call whole hearted without any reserve to serve as a shepherd to God's people.
Pastor Immanuel was born with a humble beginning to the family of Late Engr. Luke Anyanwu Asogwa, which hails from Nigeria the western part of Africa. He is married to Pastor Hannah, a virtuous woman, whose passion and burning desire for the gospel of Christ has resulted in unprecedented support to the husband in the expansion of Citadel of Praise Church International as a voice and a vision.
