About CHRISTIAN LEGENDARY AND IMPACT AWARD (CLIMA Awards)
Celebration and appreciation triggers hard work and persistence. It also motivates God and human to do more. When you give thanks to God, you are creating and opportunity for a double honour.
This principle is fully understood and practiced by the unbelievers. They tend to celebrate and award their Leaders, Musicians and even nudity in the name of Fashion Award while the Christians are busy segregating and criticizing each other, quarreling and down casting our faith instead of praying for unity, expansion and abundant grace.
God has been faithful and has shown His grace to Nigerians as far as Christianity is concerned. We have witnessed influx and increase in the number of converts, miracles, breakthrough and testimonies by the special grace of God. Our Ministers and Ministries have been a positive influence across the globe despite the fact that we have wolves in the midst of the sheep.
CLIMA Award is designed to be the apex Christian Awards in Nigeria. It is aimed at celebrating genuine anointing and impactful Men of God with high level of integrity, hard work and great input to the sustenance of our faith despite all odds. This Award also celebrates Christian Professionals, Institutions and Organizations of positive influence to the growth and sustenance of our landmark even our faith.
