Pastor Zachariah Adesina Adedeji

Assistant General Overseer Prayer (AGOP)


Pastor Zachariah Adesina Adedeji was born on the Ist day of the year 1956 in Oshogbo, Osun state by parents who became Muslims by some unusual circumstances. He had his elementary and what was known then as ‘Modern School’ education around Oshogbo, all in Osun State between 1962 and 1972 before he migrated to Lagos for his post-elementary school education. Through dint of hard work and the grace of God, he had his West African School Certificate [in 1979], and Higher School/Advance Level certificatesſin 1982] at Western College of Commerce, Onike, and Baptist Academy Obanikoro respectively. He subsequently obtained an LLB degree from the University of Lagos and was called to the bar in 1986.

He is a highly experienced lawyer who also holds the Masters of Law degree (LLM) and membership of the Notary Public.

Pastor Adedeji’s Kingdom started at an early age when he joined the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG From his parens religion as devoted Muslims. The family rose in unison to stand against his defection from the Islamic religion but for his determination and strong support from his late father who reminded the family that Christianity was the family’s early religion.

Before this time, his grandfather has always been a devoted Anglican member together with all his children, including his father. The grandfather had traveled outside their tot s trader and died there. Unable to perform his financial obligation to the Anglican Church where he used to worship, the Church unwaveringly demanded that ll outstanding dues must be paid before burial could be conducted his late father, vowed never to have anything to do with the Christian religion again they all defected to the Islamic religion. So, when Pastor Adedeji later went back to Christianity, it was not difficult for his father to silence the critics telling them that his son had only returned to his original faith.

He joined the Redeemed Christian Church of God at Odi-Olowo Osogbo in Osun State, the only parish of the church in 1971 and became born again there in 1973.
