Happy Birthday To Dr. Enoch Adejare Adeboye

adeboyesPsalm 90:12: “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”

Psalm 92: 4: “For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands. O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep. A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this. When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever: But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore. For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered. But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil. Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me. The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.”

Adeboye Turns 68 Culled From INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER

Enoch Adeboye, university lecturer, clergy, author and administrator, was born at Ifewara, now in Osun State on March 2, 1942. On Tuesday, he would attain 68.

Daddy GO, as he is popularly called by his church members, attended St. Stephenโ€™s Anglican Primary School, Ifewara; Ilesha Grammar School both in Osun State. His primary and secondary education were almost curtailed due to the problem of funds both of which he underwent barefooted and in tears. Until he was 17, he never wore shoes. However, against all odds, he managed to graduate from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) in 1967 at the age of 25. Between 1967 and 1975 he had added two more degrees, an M.Sc in hydrodynamics and a Ph.D in applied mathematics.

He started his career as a mathematics teachers at Okeigbo Grammar School, Okeigbo, near Ondo and later Anglican Grammar School, Surulere, Lagos. He left teaching in the secondary schools for lectureship at the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) and University of Lagos (UNILAG).

Adeboye joined the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) then presided over by the late Pastor Josiah Oluwafemi Akindayomi, through an invitation by his uncle. Realising he could have all the Ph.Ds in the world and still be on the losing side, he gave his life to Christ on July 29, 1973. Two years later, he was ordained a pastor in the church. Through the ordained will of God, after seven years of accepting Christ he was made the General Overseer of the church at the age of 38 precisely on January 21, 1981 after Akindayomi passed on.

He has written several Christian religious books ever since.


The first weekend of the Month of March is dedicated to celebrating Pastor Adeboye’s birthday, usually tagged SPECIAL HOLY GHOST SERVICE. This year’s event will kick off on Friday 4th to Sunday 6th march, 2010. Venue is at the CONGRESS GROUND, REDEMPTION CAMP, KM. 46. LAGOS-IBADAN EXPRESSWAY. THE THEME FOR THIS EVENT IS: “BEHOLD THE KING”.

  7. God bless you pastor, but may I state the followings,many nigerians are worried the way nigeria is going,I pray for nigeria daily even in the middle of the night I pray so that there will not be any problem in that country anymore, but the ways the politicians are behaving is giving many of us a big concern, God will need very few trusted nigerian to be a leader as Moses did, and not a ruler, but to many of us , God is yet to find any capable free of corruption, free from injustice and above all a GOD fearing leader.
    If we have to talk about corruption, nigeria is number one within the planet, I wonder where these lotted illegotten money or wealth aquired by the rulers are taking the money to ,our heart is needed by our creator ,not the earthly possessions,.With the money nigeria is having , there should not be any poverty in that country, but because of me,me, everybody is suffering, what a shame, the light and the roads are out the reach of every nigerians,the 50years celebration is within two weeks from now the roads and the power failure is not the concern of the greedy rulers, many visitors will like to watch the 50years nigeria anneversary,and the way the reporters will meet nigeria and publish their findings will be very bad. So pastor please increase your prayer,in other that God will have mercy and save that country, God help you, and long live nigeria and its citizenries.

    I worship with Deeperlife Bibile Church, but this Man of God Daddy Adeboye has stolen my heart ever since I watched him praying on his knezz. i was stunned, and dazed. Since then I learnt to give more Glory to God. Truly I love Daddy for his simplicity and humility. He doesn’t use MIGHTY grammar like other so called educated men of God. He always uses simple words just Like Jesus. in the language the simple can easily understand. God Bless him more and more.
    As a minister of the Gospel, I think I ve leanrt so much from him.
