Brief History of Jesus the Restorer Adoration Ministries (JERAM)
Jesus the Restorer Adoration Ministries is a Catholic prayer ministry in the Catholic Archdiocese of Onitsha, Nigeria. It is founded by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, the lover and restorer of humanity. It saw the light of day of the physical world on Monday, October 20 2014. Holy Family Catholic Church Umuoji, Onitsha-Nigeria, was its birthplace. Our Lord Jesus Christ having suffered to make man whole, the Ministry emphasizes the restoration and restorative potentials accruable to a believer in Jesus Christ in the life, crucificion, death, resurrection and ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus the Restorer Adoration Ministries focuses attention on the children of God with elaborate emphasis on the holistic restoration of man in the Event of Christ Jesus our Lord upon the hilly land of Golgotha (Jn 19,30). It makes sincerest effort to let the children of God be aware that there can never be condemnation for them again as far as they are in Christ Jesus (Rom 8,1). It tries to create an atmosphere imbued and influenced by the presence of the Holy Spirit of God through the preaching of unadulterated and undiluted Word of God and adoration of the conquering lion of the tribe of Judah (Rev 5,5), Jesus Christ of Nazareth in the Blessed Eucharist. The Ministry makes effort to be an avenue where the children of God learn and pray very well. Moreover, it makes a bold effort to drum it into the ears of the children of God that they must be as perfect as their Heavenly Father is perfect (Matt 5,48) even as they lay claim to the riches of God in Christ (Phil 4,19; 2 Cor 8,9). Jesus the Restorer Adoration Ministries has physical instruments of work as follows:

Mission-Vision Statement of the Ministry
A la St Paul, the love of God urges us, (2 Cor 5,14), Jesus the Restorer Adoration Ministries preaches and tries to make known the love of God in Christ Jesus (Jn 3,16), and to bring it to the awareness of the children of God that Jesus Christ our Lord came into our world so that we shall be free in the full meaning of the word (Lk 4,18-19), be not condemned by whatever forces and powers (Rom 8,1), be in a tête-à-tête with the Father (Jn 6) and that the forces of evil and downfall shall all be eradicated (1 Jn 3,8). Jesus the Restorer Adoration Ministries tries to create in the world of today men and women who are giants and tigers in the Catholic faith, that is, unadulterated and undiluted faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and who can boast with their faith and are salvation-minded and heaven-toward in their private and public life.
