Life and History
As stated by his church website:
In 1984, he embarked on a missionary journey, reaching out to villages and planting churches in stack virgin lands (then known as Redemption Faith Churches). This became a great opportunity for a lot of youths to train for ministry. In 1988, God spoke to him to conduct citywide special healing services in different towns where believers were taught on victory over sin, sickness and poverty. In the year 1990, he began holding Bible conference for believers in major cities in Nigeria, through this, various churches came together to receive light from God’s word. This lasted for about six years. By November, 1989, the church arm of the ministry took off as he claimed to have been commissioned by God to raise people as an oasis of life and power of God in their world starting from Ilesha, Osun State, Nigeria and going forth to touch the globe.
He claimed he was taken in a vision in 1996, where he stood before the Lord with other servants of God in his country where each person was being assigned for destiny appointments to their generation. When it was his turn to pick from a basket, he stepped out and picked a paper with the bold inscription “COMMITTED TO HELPING MEN REALIZE THEIR GOD-GIVEN DREAMS IN LIFE!”
