Capacity Development Summit (CDS) which entered its seventh edition this year is an annual event that was conceptualized by Pastor Idowu Ogedengbe – the Resident Pastor, House on the Rock Harvest House Ibadan, an investment banker of no mean repute with a great wealth of experience.

Pastor Idowu Ogedengbe

He noticed a great disparity in economic vibrancy of Ibadan and Oyo State as a whole, and Lagos State despite their close proximity and the massive resources available to Ibadan. It was determined that a way to jumpstart the economy of Oyo State is by creating a forum where industry experts and business gurus come to share their knowledge and inspire participants to economic capacity growth and entrepreneurial development.

CDS holds on May 1st every year to coincide with May Day and is organized under the umbrella of Men of Courage which is the Men’s fellowship of House on the Rock Ibadan.
