David Olaniyi Oyedepo (born September 27, 1954) is a Nigerian preacher, Christian author, businessman, architect and the founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, and presiding Bishop of the Faith Tabernacle in Ota, Ogun State, Nigeria. The church is also known as Winners’ Chapel International..

The Winners’ Chapel International network of churches is located in over 300 cities, in all states of Nigeria, and in several cities in 45 African nations, Dubai, the United Kingdom and the United States, Europe, Asia and Canada. Oyedepo has been seen as one of the pioneers of the Christian charismatic movement in Africa and has been referred to as one of the most powerful preachers in Nigeria.

He is the Chancellor of Covenant University and Landmark University. He was named in 2011 by Forbes magazine as being the richest pastor in Nigeria. On September 27, 1954, David Olaniyi Oyedepo was born in Osogbo, Nigeria, but is a native of Omu-Aran, Irepodun Local Government Area of Kwara State. He was raised in a mixed religious family. His father, Ibrahim, was a Muslim healer. His mother, Dorcas, was a member of the Holy Order of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church (C&S), a branch of the Aladura movement in Nigeria.  He was raised by his grandmother in Osogbo, who introduced him to the virtues of Christian life via early morning prayers which she attended with him. She also taught him the importance of tithing. Oyedepo studied architecture at the Kwara State Polytechnic Ilorin. He also received a PhD in Human Development from Honolulu University, Hawaii, US.  Oyedepo worked briefly with the Federal Ministry of Housing in Ilorin before resigning to concentrate on missionary work.

Oyedepo was “born again” in 1969, through the influence of his teacher, Betty Lasher, who took an interest in him during his high school days. According to him, he received a mandate from God through an 18-hour vision in May 1981, to liberate the world from all oppressions of the devil through the preaching of the word of faith. This is the inaugural vision that led to the founding of the Living Faith Church World Wide (LFCWW), first called Liberation Faith Hour Ministries, in 1981. Two years later, on September 17, 1983, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, ordained David and his wife, Florence Abiola Akano (known as Faith Abiola Oyedepo) to become pastors and officially commissioned the new church. Five years later, Oyedepo was ordained as Bishop by his life mentor, the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa.

Living Faith Church (AKA Winners Chapel International) started in Kaduna but moved to Lagos, the former capital of Nigeria in July 1989, to start a new branch of the church after Oyedepo claimed to have received instructions from God to reach out to the people of Lagos.

According to Forbes, Bishop Oyedepo is the wealthiest preacher in the world with a net worth of over US$150 million. The church owns four private jets and several buildings, including in London and the US. Oyedepo is an author and publisher who has written over 70 titles apart from periodicals. He is the chairman/publisher of Dominion Publishing House (DPH), a publishing arm of the ministry. DPH has over 4 million prints in circulation to date. Through Oyedepo; Covenant University, Faith Academy, and Kingdom Heritage Model Schools have been established to equip the youth for global impact. The construction of a third university named Crown University is already underway, located in Calabar, Cross River, Nigeria.

 

In 1998, Oyedepo claimed he was instructed by God to build a new base for the commission to accommodate the increasing number of worshippers. This resulted in Oyedepo’s church’s acquisition of the initial 530-acre (2.1 km2) facility, known as Canaanland, which serves as the headquarters. It is the home of the 50,000-seat capacity auditorium, the ‘Faith Tabernacle’. This was a feat also recorded by the Guinness Book of Records.

Construction was completed within 12 months. Reports also claimed that this building was built debt free. This 50,000-seat edifice was dedicated on September 18, 1999, under the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Canaanland is in Ota, Ogun state and is the 5,000-acre (20 km2) estate and campus, that houses The 50,000-seat auditorium, the church secretariat, the church’s youth chapel, a primary school called Kingdom heritage model school, a full boarding mission secondary school called Faith Academy, with over 1,500 students and the Covenant University facilities – which accommodates over 7,000 students, fully resident in ultra-modern hostel facilities – with fully equipped faculty buildings and numerous staff housing facilities. Canaanland campus also has for-profit establishments operated by the church such as a bakery, a bottled water processing plant, a petrol station, various restaurants and shopping stores, several residential houses that provide for the over 2,000 church employees and guesthouses. Four banks are also present on this Estate, three of which are branches of external commercial banks and one which is a community and micro-finance Bank and operated by the Church. The whole of Canaanland which includes a proposed 15,000 housing estate known as Canaan City had increased to 17,000 acres as of 2012.

The Ministry’s biggest annual meeting Shiloh, holds every December in the same Faith Tabernacle and often welcomes thousands of congregants across the world. The ministry is currently building an 100, 000 seater auditorium called the “Ark”, which is reputed to be the building with the largest span in the world.

Winners’ Chapel International operates a Bible training programme known as the Word of Faith Bible Institute for members and non-members alike to develop knowledge of Christian principles as well as to develop leaders and future pastors. The institute is run in major branches of the Church.[26]

Oyedepo is the president of David Oyedepo Ministries International (DOMI). DOMI is the umbrella organisation comprising Living Faith Church World Wide (a global network of churches), World Mission Agency (WMA); the global missionary arm of the church’s operations, Dominion Publishing House; the publishing arm of the church, Covenant University, and the Social Development Missions projects – made up of hospitals, maternity homes, schools, etc.

Oyedepo’s church operates its own publishing house, called Dominion Publishing House (DPH), commissioned on December 5, 1992, which has published over 70 Christian, inspirational and motivational books, mini-books, magazines and other resources.

In 1982 he married Florence Abiola Akano (now known as Faith Oyedepo). They have four children together (David Jr, Isaac, Love and Joyce). David Oyedepo Jr and Isaac Oyedepo were ordained as Pastors in May 2007 by Kenneth Copeland. David Oyedepo Jr formerly pastored the London Branch of the Church with his wife, Kemi but is now the resident pastor of the Ministry’s headquarters church (Faith Tabernacle) while Isaac Oyedepo pastors Winners’ Chapel International, Maryland, in the United States of America with his wife Ayomitide. His first daughter Love is married to Stephen Ogah, who also pastors in Winners’ Chapel. Joyce Priscilla is the last child and second daughter. She married Abimbola Abodunrin in 2020.

  • Anointing For Exploits

    Many have limited the mission of the anointing only to spiritual and physical manifestations. However, the anoiting holds the answer to all questions of life. Sadly, many have also assumed thad the anointing is only for preacher, pastors, evangelist, etc. This is far from the thruth, the anointing is relevant to the day-to-day triumph of every child of God. In addition, it is the divine platform that empowers bilievers for exploits.

    Dr David Oyedepo unveils the personality of the Holy Spirit. We need this understanding because the Holy Spirit at work in a man is what produces extraordinary results. Thus, it is impossible to understand what the anointing is without first knowing who the Holy Spirit is. When we understand his personality, it becomes easy to know how he empowers people to accomplish supernatural feats.

  • Breaking The Curses Of Life

  • Comprendre la Prospérité Financière

    Beaucoup de personnes croupissent dans la pauvreté. Souhaitant devenir un jour, ou avoir de relations pour s’en sortir. Mais le Dr. Oyedepo certifie avec véhémence dans ce livre que: “La question de chance ou hasard dans le royaume de Dieu. La lumière et ce qui fait toute la différence, car nous sommes tous d’égales destinées”.

    C’est donc à cette lumière que l’apôtre de la prospérité vous expose ici. Ce livre est le résultat des décennies de recherches et de pratique sur la prospérité par un homme qui déchire:

    “Je ne suis pas un prédicateur de la prospérité, je suis un prophète. Dieu me parla clairement lors d’un voyage missionnaire en Amérique en ces termes: Rentre au pays et enrichi mon peuple!”

    Voilà pourquoi ce que j’enseigne n’a rien avoir avec une thématique ordinaire sur la prospérité. Ce sont des forces célestes qui vous sont imparties, afin de faire de vous une célébrité sur terre.

    Pourquoi ? Parce que je suis envoyé ! J’ai vu Dieu à l’œuvre dans le domaine de la prospérité depuis ce mandat, et c’est la raison pour laquelle il m’a envoyé: effectuer un changement dans le destin des hommes.

    Je suis envoyé, non seulement pour l’enseigner, mais aussi pour le montrer afin qu’en entendant ce que Dieu dit par moi et en vous y conformant. Vous voyez libres. Parce que: “Par un prophète, l’éternel fit sortir Israël d’Egypte, et par un prophète il fut préservé”. Dieu est prêt pour avoir votre destinée préservée”.

  • Comprendre le pouvoir de la louange

     

    La louange nous voire sa force, Sa puissance et Sa toute magnificence!

    Dieu vous dit en ce moment: “Il est temps de comprendre le nouveau programme”. Ce n’est pas ce à
    quoi nous sommes habitué. Dieu est entrain de restaurer le tabernacle de David à l’Église. Si vous
    regardez de près la prophétie d’Amos, elle dit: “<Puis je relèverai de la chute la maison de David … ” (Amos 9 : Il). Il doit d’abord y avoir la restauration du tabernacle de la louange avant que Jésus ne revienne. Et c’est justement l’ère dans laquelle nous entrons maintenant, un domaine où rien ne répondra tant que la louange n’est pas offerte!

    La louange, c’est ne pas se focaliser sur ce qui se passe; c’est se connecter sur la fidélité de Dieu. C’est se fixer sur l’efficacité des Écritures. C’est se focaliser sur l’intégrité de Dieu et des visions que vous avez reçues. Voilà ce qui rend la louange interminable! Je crois qu’il y a une rencontre préparée pour vous
    dans ce livre ! Vous serez introduit dans un nouveau mode de vie – un monde tout en louange!
