PASTOR E.A ADEBEYO
Enoch Adeboye is a famous Nigerian pastor who rose to national and eventually international prominence upon being appointed as
the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG). Hitherto unknown to the public at large, he began his journey
to fame at RCCG where he initially translated the sermons of its then Pastor and founder, Rev. Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi,
from Yoruba into English. With his undying devotion towards the Lord and his commitment towards helping the common man understand
the nuances of Christianity, he helped to expand the church which now has branches in over a hundred countries.
Prior to his involvement with the church he had been a lecturer in mathematics at the universities of Lagos and Ilorin.
Even though he had always known that God existed in heaven, it was not until he was a young man that he actually realized
the truth about God. He had a revelation in 1973 and received the Lord Jesus as his personal Lord and Saviour.
Since then he has dedicated his life fully to the service of God. As a born-again Christian he realized that the purpose of his life
was to spread the teachings of Christianity and thus he eventually gave up his prestigious university position to become a full-time preacher.
