PASTOR’S NAME : Enoch Adeboye

Enoch Adejare Adeboye is a Nigerian pastor and the General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG)[1][2]

Pastor Adeboye has a PhD in applied mathematics from the University of Lagos, and worked as a lecturer in mathematics at the universities of Lagos[2] and Ilorin;[3] After joining the RCCG, he began working to translate the sermons of its then Pastor and founder, Rev. Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi, from Yoruba into English.[2][3]

In 1981 Adeboye was appointed General Overseer the church, taking over from Papa Akindayomi, who had died the previous year.[2][3] For three years he filled the role part-time, still lecturing at Ilorin, until giving up his university position to preach full-time.[3]

The church, which was not well known before Adeboye took charge,[3] now claims branches in over a hundred countries, including more than 14,000 in Nigeria.[2] Adeboye has stated that his aim is to put a church within five minutes of every person on Earth.[2] He is the national president of RCF (an interdenominational fellowship in all the campuses in Nigeria). In 2008, Newsweek magazine named Adeboye one of the fifty most powerful people in the world.[2] He is married to Foluke Adeboye, also a pastor, with whom he has children.[3]
