When he started several decades ago, he drove around and did the work of God in an old model vehicle which is nothing compared to the dozens of better and newer cars he’s used from that time till this day.

He’s one of the most renowned spiritual leaders in Nigeria, and the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) which now has parishes in several nations of the world.
However, Pastor Enoch Adeboye is not the founder of the Church, the ministry started as far back as 1952, and Pastor Enoch Adeboye has led the Church through several trials and has contributed gravely to the growth of the Church spiritually and financially.
Pastor Enoch Adeboye was given birth to in Ifeware, Osun State, Nigeria on the 2nd of March, 1942. He was born Enoch Adejare Adeboye, and that’s abbreviated Pastor E (Enoch) A (Adejare) Adeboye.
He was born into a family of four children, and his parents were very poor. His farther was a farmer who was not very literate and didn’t have much value for education.
Therefore, he didn’t see the need to send his children to school, or the need for his children to acquire quality education. The poverty in his family at that time of his birth was intense to the point where paying school fees was a major problem.
At that time, Enoch Adeboye really wanted to go to school. He let his father know several times but his father rejected his request severally. In a bid to persuade his Dad, he stopped eating and assumed an hunger strike.
Seeing this, his Dad eventually concurred to his desire and sold out a goat from his stock so as to gather enough money to send him to school. After all and all was done, Enoch Adeboye went on to study at the only missionary school in his village at the time.
After primary school education was done for, Enoch Adeboye got enrolled into the Ilesha Grammar School in 1956. The school was located in Ilesha, Osun State, Western Nigeria, and there he fell in love with mathematics and sciences. Coming from a poor background was more than just a motivation to be the best.
After finishing secondary school, he wanted to further his education. This was a bit of a challenge for him as his family didn’t have enough money to sponsor him, and the ongoing Nigerian civil war contributed to making the reality of his dreams seem almost impossible.
Notwithstanding the formidable obstacles, Enoch Adeboye pushed further and was able to acquire a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in 1967, a Masters degree in hydrodynamics from the University of Lagos State, Nigeria in 1969, and a Doctorate degree in Applied Mathematics also from the University of Lagos in 1975.
Pastor Enoch Adeboye loved education and academics so much that he desired to be the youngest Vice-Chancellor of any topnotch University in Nigeria. With this desire in heart, he kicked off his career in academics as a mathematics lecturer in the University of Ilorin, and the University of Lagos.
Just before the acquisition of his Doctorate degree in Applied Mathematics in 1975, Pastor Enoch Adeboye was already married to his wife Foluke. The marriage was quite a successful one but it was punctured by the constant problem of childbearing.
The couple had two children already which were ushered to this world through cesarean section. Having two children already with difficulty, they received advice from doctors to not have Kore children which could be fatal.
Science failed, and so the couple looked elsewhere in search of a solution to their marital issue. In 1973, Pastor Enoch Adeboye and his wife got to the Redeemed Christian Church of God which was Overseen by Pastor Josiah Oluwafemi Akindayomi. At this time, he wasn’t even a born again Christian not to talk of being a Pastor.
On July 29, 1973, Enoch Adeboye became a born again Christian, and dedicated his life to God. He became actively involved in the things of God, and in the things and activities of the Church.
All of these happened due to a cause that he and his wife needed to have more children, and they needed the intervention of God. In the year 1975, he was ordained a Pastor, and in the same year he earned his Doctorate degree.
Initially, Pastor Enoch Adeboye would translate the messages of Pastor Akindayomi from Yoruba to English language (that was his initial assignment in the Church). As time went on, he started organizing crusades, bible meetings, and revival meetings, and outreaches, and a programme known as the Congress.
In 1981, Pastor Oluwafemi Akindayomi passed away and before this happened, there was an instruction he left behind which would determine the next in line to succeed him.
Based on this instruction, Pastor Enoch Adeboye seemed the most aligned for the position, and he was ordained the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God worldwide.
Today, the church has parishes in several nations of the world, specifically in more than 180 countries, and has extended parishes scattered across these nations.
He’s married with four children and grand children to his lovely wife, Foluke Adenike. They got married in 1968 and a very simple wedding ceremony was organized. He got married to her at the young age of 25 while he was in hard struggle to level up his academic qualification.

February 2020 Holy Ghost Service Text: Genesis 1:1-3 Topic: Let there be Light 2 When God says “Let there be light”, it could also mean “let there be morning”. It means Weeping and Sorrow stops and Joy comes. Psalms 30:5. Sorrow could come as a result of Tragedy. Luke 7:11-16. Sorrow could come as a result of Disappointment Matthew 26:71-75 Sorrow dims Vision. Job 17:7. Sorrow weakens, it causes one to sleep. Luke 25:45-46 Let there be light could also mean “let there be a new beginning, a new dawn”. This would mean Restoration.Withered hands can mean going from financial prowess to having nothing. When we talk about restoration another example is in 2Kings 6:1-7 If you use to be a person of value and then you lose your relevance, it takes God to restore this person. Two words: Relic: Someone who is past his time and lost value. Relevance: Someone who is relevant. “Let there be light” could also mean “let there be a new creation”. John 9:1-7, 2 Kings 5:1-14. Going right back to my origin & making things right. Gen 17:3-5. “Let there be light” has a deeper meaning and that is “let the siege be over”. Judges 16:1-3, 2Kings 8:16. The siege of the woman with the issue of blood ended. Mark 5:25-34. “Let there be light” could also mean “don’t let my sun set, yet”. Joshua 10:1-12. I'm not ready to die yet! I've not finished my assignment!! I've not reached my goal!!! My sun can't set yet! If your sun is not shining yet, pray that your sun will rise. If you sun is already shining, pray to God that your sun will not set yet. Judges 16: 18-31 @thehgservice #lettherebelight2
