Happy Birthday to Bishop Oyedepo!!
Today September 27, 2018, the president of the Living Faith Church Word wide, Bishop (Dr) David Olaniyi Oyedepo celebrates his 64th birthday!!
Having been born-again at a tender age of 15 in 1969, this grandfather apostle of faith was called into the ministry on May 2nd, 1982 in what is known among his followers as The Mandate, in an 18-hour open vision, where God gave him the marching orders to what has today become a global Commission.
This great man of God had his mission spelt out for him by God Himself: “To liberate the world from all oppression of the devil, through the preaching of the Word of faith.”
David O. Oyedepo,affectionately called “Papa” was born September 27, 1954 in Kwara State Nigeria. He is the founder and presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church World Wide, also known as Winners Chapel, and its affiliated international churches known as Winners Chapel International, with headquarters in Ogun State, Nigeria.
Bishop Oyedepo is the senior pastor of Faith Tabernacle, a 50,000 seat church auditorium, reported to be the largest church auditorium in the world by the Guinness Book of Records
His life has been a tremendous blessing to many. His diligent service and dedication to the work God has called him to do has impacted nations, and has sown the seed of faith in the hearts of the next generation.
The man Bishop David Oyedepo is a strong believer in the fact that not all that glitters is gold. He believes that a man’s worth is in following a path ordained by God.
In one Shiloh night service in 2007 he said, “One wrong step is enough to crash a destiny. God has an already made plan for you. If you miss it, you’ll pay dearly for it.”
In his book, Understanding Divine Direction, he tells several personal life encounters that show the importance of following the plan of God for your life.
He believes and teaches that you don’t need to be a pastor to be successful and make a great impact in life. All you need is to do whatever it takes and find the plan of God for your life and then give it your 110% effort.
Words will fail us in describing the depth of this man. I personally have been blessed by his books and messages.
Happy Birthday Bishop Oyedepo from team Ecclezzia!! We love you Papa!
