Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye Ministry
Pastor Adeboye gave his life to Christ on July 29, 1973, when he became a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. He served in the church as an interpreter for Pastor Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi, founder of The Redeemed Christian Church Of God, who could only preach in Yoruba language.
He was ordained a pastor in 1977. After the death of Pa Akindayomi, he became the general overseer of the RCCG in 1987.
However, this new ordination seemed difficult to combine with his job as a professor. Not long after, he was instructed by God to quit his job and focus on the ministry.
God has used him and his position as general overseer to bring about marked changes in the Church.
The most notable achievement was when he bought a huge tract of land along the Lagos-Ibadan highway that houses the Redemption Camp, which hosts the Holy Ghost Congress and other annual programs.
Today RCCG has offices in more than 196 countries. This is in line with the vision of planting a Redeemed Christian Church Of God branch within five minutes walking distance in emerging cities and five minutes driving distance in developed cities.
