Pastor Adebayo Adeyokunnu is a seasoned man of God who by the grace of God has a strong track record of integrity in the service of the gospel. He serves his generation by the will of God as a pastor, teacher, author and church planter. Having ministered in different capacities within the body of Christ for more than three decades beginning as a leader at the University Of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) Student Christian Movement, Pastor Bayo has risen to become a Regional Pastor of The Redeemed Christian Church of God in North America. He has pastored different congregations of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Lagos Nigeria before pioneering RCCG Victory Temple Bowie in 1996. The church today has a membership of over two thousand worshippers. Victory Temple is a winepress that has turned out several other leaders who have started more than twenty-five other parishes of RCCG sprawled around the States of Maryland, Virginia, the Carolinas and Washington DC.
One of the graces demonstrated in the life of this man of God is the capacity to raise leaders through training and discipleship, he being an outstanding leader himself. His ministry has produced leaders who are vehemently affecting their generation positively in ministry, business, the academia and other spheres of human endeavor. His overriding passion is to see people succeed and fulfill their divine destiny and make a glorious eternity with Christ at the end of their journey on earth. A leader with the heart of a shepherd, he believes that no life is beyond the redeeming love and power of the gospel of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
As a missionary pastor, it has pleased the Lord to use him to establish more than forty parishes of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in the nation of India. He believes that the primary purpose of the church is to evangelize the world; this belief is expressed in different mission and missionizing efforts in different nations of the world.
An astute writer, Pastor Bayo has written empowering books on spiritual and social issues relating to family life, leadership, the Holy Spirit, service of the Kingdom, money matters, divine healing, the anointing and how to succeed in life, to mention a few.
