Dayo Olutayo is the Senior Pastor of Good Tidings Bible Church International (GTBCI). Dayo Olutayo is the in-law to Bishop David Oyedepo, by reason of being the younger brother to Faith Oyedepo, the wife of Nigeria’s richest and most generous pastor. He is a mechanical engineer by training. Dayo Olutayo and her elder sister Faith Oyedepo came from a family where good Christian ideals are highly espoused, such that even their father, who died at ripe old age, was still very spiritually sound till death.
Dayo was introduced to ministry work by Bishop Oyedepo where he served as a church assistant and actually lived with the Oyedepos for a few years until his boss felt he was matured enough to pastor a branch.
His first official posting as a Resident Pastor was the Maiduguri Branch of Winners Chapel. He showed ministerial grace and excellence which earned him another foreign posting to Nairobi Kenya in 1995. It was on record that within three years, a church started from the scratch was able to erect a 3500 seater auditorium, built debt-free and dedicated in 1998, a feat never experienced in the history of church building projects of any other church, in the entire nation of Kenya.
The Grace of God upon his life earned him another posting to Abuja to supervise the transition from Area1 to Durumi District and subsequently, he was consecrated a Bishop. Bishop Afolabi, Bishop Dickson and Bishop Adjeman and Bishop Olutayo formed the third level of Hierarchy in the Bishopric office under the Ministry.
The normal wind of transfer associated with Living Faith Church came calling in 2004 and Bishop Dayo Olutayo was sent to Port Harcourt. This decision of his boss and in-law to remove him from the lucrative Abuja Diocese to make way for a hierarchically senior colleague, Bishop David Abioye, to replace him, did not go down well with him.
He introduced Bishop Abioye to his flock, jetted down to Port Harcourt, took over from the man there, returned back to Abuja, ostensibly to prepare to relocate finally to the new territory, and he ended up relocating finally out of Winners Chapel.
Dayo Olutayo shortly after his return from Port Harcourt circulated a leaflet where he denounced his Bishopric Office and described it as a title under ‘Living Faith Church’, resigned from the church and started Good Tidings Bible Church.
One cannot deny that Pastor Olutayo has the calling of God upon his life. In Good Tidings Bible Church, testimonies of favour have become so common that it is no more celebrated. Persons have been astronomically promoted, businesses suddenly turned around miracle jobs, miracle marriages, and mega contracts through processes that show only a magnetic influence of delight associated with God’s favour.
Pastor Dayo Olutayo also gets involved in feeding the poor and helping the less privileged in the society irrespective of religious leanings. Muslims, Christians and Pagans have all benefited from his ministry of rehabilitating the poor and needy in Abuja in dimensions never exhibited by any other church in the city.
What he introduced years back as a process of feeding the poor has metamorphosed into a Lifegate Care Centres located around Abuja where the poor are fed occasionally. In addition, a quarterly programme of feeding, clothing and rehabilitating the poor and needy called Kingdom Welfare Day (KWD) has become a regular feature in the church. Diverse categories of scholarships are also given out to the less privileged, in dimensions not witnessed around the city.
Dayo Olutayo has been able to organize the numerous wealthy and highly placed personalities in Good Tidings Bible Church into utilizing their God-given privileges, opportunities and wealth into making the larger society a most habitable place to be. He teaches Christian leadership and corporate responsibilities and believes that a man’s worth is what he gives out to society, not what he receives.
