Senior Church Pastors

Our Leadership Team works together to shape the vision and direction of Freedom Arena

Pastor Debo

Solomon Adebowale Adegoke, the Senior Pastor and Founder of Mount Zion Christian Ministries International, Freedom Arena, is an incredible leader. Alongside his wife, Abigail Tutu Adegoke, they pastor the branch in Plumstead South East London. Solomon was born in Abeokuta, Ogun State of Nigeria, into a Baptist family. He received his early education in his hometown of Okeho and pursued higher education in the Ibadan Polytechnic, studying Marketing.

Solomon’s personal Christian journey began on July 15, 1990, when he dedicated his life to Jesus Christ. He started serving in Living Spring Chapel as an usher and his gift of speaking fluent Yoruba soon became evident. He became one of the interpreters in his church, translating English messages into Yoruba for the minister. This gift opened doors for him beyond his hometown and country, allowing him to serve in various capacities in different churches.

On January 22, 2008, Solomon received a specific calling from God to “Take root downwards in the U.K. and I will take your fruits all over the world.” This led to the birth of Mount Zion Christian Ministries International, based on Obadiah 1:17. Since its inception on May 18, 2008, with 53 members, the church has grown significantly, welcoming adults, children, and youths.

PDA, as he is affectionately known as, puts his complete trust in God’s grace and favor, which shines through in every message he delivers. He’s well-known for his impactful ministrations during the popular Yoruba services called Bami See & Oru Atunse. These services happen at least three times a month and attract a minimum of 2000 members, both in-person and online. Pastor Debo is happily married to Adetutu Adegoke, who serves as a co-pastor in the ministry, and they are blessed with three wonderful children.
