This announcement was greeted with mixed reactions from members of the public.
However, the church has taken to its official Facebook page to explain the concept behind the planned beauty pageant.
The church explained that the beauty contest tagged ‘Queen Esther pageant competition’ is geared towards selecting an ambassador for the church.
The post read:
“The evening usually features the parade and display of beautiful women in costumes inspired by popular female bible characters. The contestant with the most creative costume is then crowned as the Queen Esther and gets a cash prize of one million naira.”
