We are located opposite Community High School, along Ijede Road, Ikorodu, Lagos Road. Our branch is along Imota Gberigbe Road, Rice Farm Bus-Stop, Idabi Town before Ajas Estate, Imota Ikorodu, Lagos.
When did you start this ministry?
Could you share some miracles God has done through this church with us?
We give glory to God. A lot of barren women have become mothers, those seeking for jobs have got jobs, those in sickness have been healed and lots of unlimited miracles have come to pass.

We hold prayer meetings for barren and pregnant women on Tuesdays, we have Shiloh programme and counseling on Wednesdays. On Thursdays, we hold Good Morning Jesus. First and last Fridays of every month, we do Vigil. Our Sunday service starts with Sunday School Bible Teaching and the Sunday Service proper.
Could you tell us about the special programme coming up?
The programme tagged 7 Days, 7 Nights with the theme “Arise and Walk” will kick off between December 3 and 10th, 2017. It is a marathon prayer and revival programme but on Sunday December 10, it will be thanksgiving grand finale day.
Are you inviting gospel artistes and other anointed men of God to rejoice with you in the thanksgiving?
Yes, we are inviting some spiritual gospel artistes to join our own choir with spiritual fathers and anointed ministers of God to celebrate with us.
How did God call you to work for Him?
My future was prophesied before my mother had me in her womb. They told her that she would give birth to a son that would be working in the vineyard of God. When I grew up, I tried to be educated to avoid becoming a minister of God but it didn’t work, I also received messages from various prophets that if I refused to obey the call of God, I would suffer in life and would not have breakthrough. I also dreamt of it too before I eventually yielded to the voice of God.
Before you eventually established your ministry, where did you worship and did you go to a theology school to learn more about the Bible?
After my secondary education, I went to God’s Time Theology School at Agbado, Ogun State. I have worshipped at FRCN C & S, I also worshipped at C&S Movement Church, All Saints District at Ikorodu. I also went to C & S Movement Church, Promised Land at Ebute, Ikorodu, Lagos. I left the place to yield to the voice of God to establish this ministry.
You have been in your ministry for 14 years, can you share the challenges with us?
Bible makes me understand that no one will be successful without facing challenges in life. We thank God that we were able to overcome all the challenges when they surfaced with the grace of God.
Could you just be specific and share one of the challenges with us?
One of the challenges was when the building of our church collapsed from the foundation and thieves came to pack the church’s instruments.
Tell us about your family background
I am married to my beautiful wife and we are blessed with three kids.
Where do you hail from?
I am from Ikorodu. I was born at Aga at Ikorodu and that is where I hail from.
What is your message to our leaders?
The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom says the Bible. Our leaders should have the fear of God in the way they are administering the nation.
What prophecy did you have for Nigeria in 2018?
God revealed to me that 2018 is a year of joy for those who are steadfast in Him.
Which profession were you into before you eventually started God’s work?
I was working as a welder.
