Famous Nigerian Pastors And Their Mandate From God


There are numerous pastors in Nigeria with each of them having their own unique mandate from God to carry out on earth. The mandate being that what they have to accomplish on earth before they go up to meet their maker, this article is focused at bringing information about the God’s given mandate, so sit back, relax and enjoy!


Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye is the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Worldwide who was born on the 2nd of March, 1942 making him 76 years old. He is not the founder of the church, but was first translating Yoruba to English for the founder, Rev. Josiah O. Akindayomi. After the death of Rev J.O Akindayomi, the power was transferred to him in the year 1981 as the General Overseer of the church. Today the church is located in about 196 nations of the earth with up to 15,000 branches in Nigeria alone. You may wonder what the secret of this fast growth is, well, here it is.


God delivered his mandate which Pastor E.A Adeboye is running with, which is to make heaven and the strategies (ways) of doing that is to plant churches within a short distance to the homes of individuals, precisely five minutes walking distance in developing countries and five minutes driving distance in developed countries. That way, there would be no excuse of not going to church when you ought to, because when you open your gate, there would be a Redeemed Church staring you in the face.


When you hear about Bishop David Oyedepo, the church that comes to your mind straight is Living Faith Church Worldwide. He is a very famous pastor especially here in Nigeria and although criticized by some but is still making impact worldwide and you may want to wonder what his drive really is, well here it is. But before I pen that down, let me give a brief profile on the church. Living Faith Church was started by Bishop David Oyedepo in the year 1983 making it 35 years old now. While Bishop David was growing up, he always carried a strong passion for God that couldn’t be shaken by anything or anyone, today that passion for God had made him win numerous souls for God and Living Faith Church is located in over 65 nations of the world.


One day when going about his spiritual work, God spoke to him and told him to seek a quiet place, that he wants to speak to him and he went ahead and followed the voice of God and encountered God in an 18-hour vision, the words he heard are “Now the time has come to liberate the world from all oppression of the devil through the preaching of the word of faith and I am sending you to undertake this task”. Which means his God’s given mandate is the Liberation Mandate.
