Pastor Faith Abiola Oyedepo is the wife of Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide a.k.a. Winners’ Chapel, and Senior Pastor of Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland, Ota, Nigeria. She propagates the Good News of Jesus Christ along with her husband, in numerous nations of the world, with a mission to liberate the oppressed.
The mandate that culminated into this ministry was received in 1981. She has a ministry to families and homes, which she has dedicated her life to, by showing people the perfect will of God for their homes and relationships. She also has a divine call to make her shoulders available, and enrich the lives of singles in a unique way.
Born February 5 1958, as Florence Abiola Akano, Pastor Faith is endeared to many in Nigeria, and across the globe, especially for her endless work in strengthening the family unit. She has written several books, and maximized various avenues of communication, such as media outlets, to become an authority in the area of family, youth, and women empowerment, as well as marital success.
With her life as a practical example, she has been able to portray a model lifestyle for others to replicate. She has demonstrated in practical terms and through deep spiritual insight, that the home can truly be the Eden that God created it to be.
Her passion has been further strengthened by a recent happening in her life, in which her health was challenged, and she was supernaturally delivered from death. This renewed her zeal and hunger to impact her world.
Today, she is back, preaching God’s Word with a renewed sense of urgency and passion. This experience has been captured in her most exciting book, Rescued from Destruction.
Despite all that God has accomplished in and through her, she believes that there are still more lives to impact and that the best is yet to come.
In 1982, Pastor Faith got married to David Oyedepo. They marriage is blessed with four children (David Jr, Isaac, Love and Joys). David Jr and Isaac Oyedepo were ordained as Pastors in May 2007 by Kenneth Copeland.
