He started his personal Christian walk as he gave his life and accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour on the 15th of July 1990. He flourished and joined the workforce in Living Spring Chapel as an usher. Soon enough, his gift of speaking unadulterated Yoruba came to light and so he became one of the interpreters in his church, interpreting English to Yoruba for the minister. Suffice to say that this gift made a way and a name for him far beyond the shores of his native town and country. He has spent years serving in church in various capacities.
He received his calling on January 22, 2008 when God specifically told him – “Take root downwards in U.K. and I will take your fruits all over the world”.
Hence the Ministry given birth to was based on Obadiah 1:17.
But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.
He started Mount Zion Christian Ministries International with 53 members on the 18th of May, 2008. The church has now grown to over 700 adults, excluding children and youths.
