A renowned Nigerian Pastor, Enoch Adejare Adeboye is 79 today.
Adeboye was born on 2 March 1942 in Ifewara, near Ife, in Osun State, Nigeria. He joined the Redeemed Christian Church of God in 1973 and served as an interpreter before he was ordained a pastor in the Church (RCCG) by Pa. Josiah Akindayomi in 1975.
He became General Overseer of the church in 1981. For three years, he filled the role part-time at Unilorin before giving up his university position to preach full-time.
The church, which was not well known prior to Adeboye becoming the General Overseer, has branches in about 196 nations (as of March 2017), including more than 14,000,000 in Nigeria.
Adeboye has stated that his aim is to put a church within five minutes walking distance in developing cities and five minutes driving distance in developed cities.
