In addition, he is the senior pastor at Faith Tabernacle, a 50,000-seater church auditorium. Whereas the Winners Chapel can be found in thirty-two African countries as well as in the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and Dubai; Faith Tabernacle was named the world’s largest church auditorium by the Guinness Book of World Records. A husband and father of four, David Oyedepo is affectionately called “Papa” by the members of his church congregation and has been often referred to as one of the most powerful preachers in Nigeria.
He was raised by his grandmother in Osogbo, who introduced him to the virtues of Christian life via early morning prayers which she attended with him. She also taught him the importance of tithing.
Oyedepo became “born again” in 1969, through the influence of his teacher, Betty Lasher, who took an interest in him during his high school days. He studied architecture at the Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin and worked briefly with the Federal Ministry of Housing in Ilorin before resigning to concentrate on missionary work. Oyedepo received a Ph.D. in Human Development from Honolulu University, Hawaii, US.
According to him, he received a mandate from God through an 18-hour vision in May 1981, to liberate the world from all oppressions of the devil through the preaching of the word of faith. This is the inaugural vision that led to the founding of the Living Faith Church World Wide (LFCWW), first called Liberation Faith Hour Ministries, in 1981.
Two years later, on September 17, 1983, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, ordained David and his wife, Florence Abiola Akano (known as Faith Abiola Oyedepo) to become pastors and officially commissioned the new church. Five years later, Oyedepo was ordained as Bishop.
