Since August 2010 some group of young people do gather to have drama presentation at an annual youth camp meeting of a church called YATLEC (Ye are the Light Evangelical Church). Their involvement in the drama presentations was just out of love and interest in drama. The initiator of the drama group Bro Joshua Bamidele was only doing that which God can help him do. Not until 9th of April, 2013 when God told him that he will be having a drama ministry with the name “LIVING WORD”. Due to some fears, he refused to let the ball out of the court not until late 2014 that God intensified the burden. 25th December 2014, God said the time to start is NOW! Since then, he has been trusting God for directions, wisdom and grace.
The name ‘Living Word Evangelical Ministry’ (LIWEM) was born out of passion for dying souls with the main aim for evangelism and drawing more people to God. June 25, 2015 the name was changed to LIWEM NETWORK INTERNATIONAL. The network was added as the Lord revealed that “it’s the imparts can’t be denied or abandoned, for it shall sweep across the globe” Just like the wind Jesus talked about and its undeniable effects (John 3:6)
The first official meeting of the ministry was held 8am on the 11th August, 2015 at the LAUTECH (Ladoke Akintola University of Technology) Chapel Ogbomoso, Oyo State Nigeria with 6 members while the ministry had her inauguration October 30th, 2015 at the same venue.
