Full Biography of Pastor Karounwi Damilola Gabriel

Pastor Karounwi Damilola Gabriel hails from Ogun state, Nigeria. He was born into a family of pastors and grew up in his grandparent’s house where he was deeply furnished with the knowledge of Christ.

married to Mrs Karounwi Itunuoluwa and above all, a lover of the Monarch of Zion
Knowing that his religious background wasn’t enough to truly encounter God, Pastor Karounwi received Jesus as Lord  and savior in the year 2001/2002, when I did my baptism but didn't really take it serious until I rededicated my life to Christ in 2009 when I left all for Christ and from then I began to witness the gospel of Christ Jesus to the end of the world and that was how my born again experience began.
Pastor was born into the C&S church even though at that time my Dad was a celestial while my Mum is a C&S. My grandparents were founders of a C&S church, so I grew up in C&S Movement Church Chapel of Resurrection Araromi Ifako.

 Tell us about your ministry. How you started and the journey so far?
Menorah, as we fondly call it, is a school of the Spirit Word which God placed in my heart as a burden to build youths into stature and ranking solely with the revelation of Christ, and it is an interdenominational gathering but with predominantly C&S members. Menorah is actually an Hebrew word for the 7 lampstands as seen in Revelation 1:12-13 "And I turned to see the voice that spake unto me. And being turned I saw seven golden candlesticks and in the midst of the seven one like the SON OF MAN clothed with a garment down to the foot and girt about the paps with a golden girdle." That was the scripture that birthed the revelation of the name Menorah. The Journey so far has been sponsored by God because when we started in June 2017, we never foresaw all that we see today. We were just in a small enclave, which used to be my former office, holding the meeting, and God was helping us. As God's word were released, we saw all manners of miracles, signs and wonders. Indeed Christ is at the epicentre of all our engagement, and we bless Him for His wondrous works amidst us.
So Menorah simply means Christ in the centre of the church, because when you proceed to the last verse of Revelation 1; we were told the lampstands represents the church and in verse 13 we saw Christ standing at the centre of the church.
What can you say about the C&S church?
 Oh my! The C&S church is a blessed church, and I must confess that the Lord raised the fold to reveal the knowledge of the glory of the Lord lavished with all manner of mammoth level of gifts expressions. We thank God that in our day the deficiency of scriptural knowledge and accurate doctrine is gradually fading off, because the Monarch of Zion has been raising some doctrinal luminaries who are so vast in the word, and the fruits of the word is actually finding expression in them and through them. But my prayer is that we'll not value gifts more than the word because we must come to a place of balance. The compass for our spiritual escapade is the WORD however we can't undermine the place of giftings as scribbled in 1 Corinthians 12. 

Then secondly there's a strong burden for evangelism on my mind because I'm an itinerant minister who does soul winning, and this is my 10th year in that business of winning souls. Presently some of us are even planning to visit some interior corridors where they have not heard with the gospel of Christ. I was in a place recently that i had to journey over the water to get to this extreme end where they are so obsessed with demonic worship, I saw erected altars of darkness but GOD helped us to do spiritual business in that place. This is what we need in the C&S church, there should be an arm for missions in every church, people who are dedicated to evangelism only few C&S churches are doing that and when they see some of us going out for missions they tag us "Proud" because they don't see you in church all the time. For us to grow we must give credence to the WORD, Evangelism and likewise PRAYER must be native to us (Act 20:32, Matthew 28:19-20, Luke 18:1)
How do we cultivate a sense of biblical and godly community in C&S church
Sincerely I have a simple answer to this, our lifestyles must depict what the WORD says. Our white garment must be white within and without such that when people see us even in our attire they can relate well with us because our attire makes us so conspicuous to the world such that any little mistake we do is so visible. My point is we must become the living bible, and our life should resonate with what the WORD says, and this can only happen when we as a church submit to the government of the Holy Spirit. Journeying in partnership with the Holy Spirit makes it easy to cultivate a sense of biblical godly community.
