House On The Rock Drummer Slumps And Dies In Church

Chris Okafor, the drummer for House on the Rock, passes away after slumping during worship.

Chris Okafor, the drummer for House on the Rock, passed away on Sunday, March 12, following a fall in church.

Pastor Paul Adefarasin, House On The Rock Church’s founder, made this announcement in a statement on Monday.

He said, “We lost one of our own, and our hearts ache for a young man who died in his prime.

“Chris Okafor was full of life, his understanding of music and how beats make your worship experience so much better is a talent that he will be remembered for. Chris served with us in the music ministry arm of HOTR for over 12 years, and while serving, on Sunday, he slumped and was immediately rushed to our in-suite clinic for first aid before being rushed to the hospital.

“Since the news of his passing, we have been reflecting on the moments we had with him. We were so proud of all that he had achieved and we knew that he had so much more to manifest as a son of God.”

Additionally, Adefarasin had a message for Destiny, Okafor’s wife. “We wrap our arms around you, knowing how deeply you hurt,” he uttered. But rest confident that we shall overcome this together and you are not alone.

To the late drummer’s aged father, the cleric said, “We hope that the memories of Chris will be a constant reminder of his purpose here on earth.”

Adefarasin also acknowledged the arm of the family to which Okafor belonged, the Lagos Metropolitan Gospel Choir (LMGC).

“Moments like this make us stronger, so let us stand in God’s unfailing promise, that though the night may come, joy awaits in the morning.

“Chris, you lived a fulfilling life. Rest in the bosom of our Lord. We pray that God will keep everyone that you have left behind. We will miss you on this side,” he added.
