Happy birthday to a Spiritual Giant, a Preacher of Preachers, Pastor Anu Ojo

Pastor Anu Ojo

Without any blabbing, Pastor Michael Anuoluwapo Ojo is synonymous with biblical Apostle Paul in terms of the zeal for preaching the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and church planting. He is a Preacher of Preachers, Minister of Ministers, Mentor of Mentors,  Book Writer and Editor. This quintessential clergy who marks his birthday today is an epitome of God’s chosen and anointed servant has being in the ministry over three decades. He is the Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Vineyard of Mercy, Districts Coordinating Council (DCC), Sabo-Yaba Lagos.

Pastor Anu Ojo told CAC NEWS how God called him into the ministry; “By God’s grace I started the work of the ministry in 1981 following the footstep of my first mentor, Late Prophet Timothy Obadare. He was an Assistant General Evangelist in Christ Apostolic Church Worldwide then. With the commission and mandate of God upon his life, he had a personal ministry in the body of Christ named World Soul Winning Evangelistic Ministry (WOSEM). He was a member of the General Executive Council of CAC Worldwide. CAC 83, Lagos Street, which my family attended then wanted to celebrate the anniversary of the church and they decided to invite Baba Obadare for an indoor revival.”

“Those days his ministry was around Ibadan, Akure, Ilesa and so on. So when we wanted to invite him, he told us that it would be better for us to have an open air crusade instead of having a local assembly programme. He said his ministry was beyond coming to one church and ministering for a whole week. For that reason we had to call other CAC assemblies in Lagos together to organize a crusade. The crusade was held at Tafawa Balewa Square. So it was the anniversary of CAC Ebute Metta, Oke Irorun that brought Baba Obadare to lime light in Lagos. Although, he had been coming to Lagos to preach before the crusade, but he was well known through the crusade. It was through the crusade that I got connected to him and I began to observe and follow him. He mentored me. Since that time I have been in the work of the ministry. My second mentor was also the disciple of Baba Obadare, by name, Rev. Holly Elijah Olaniyan.”

“I didn’t attend CAC Theological Seminary towards my year of ordination in 1987. But I went to a Bible School in Ilorin Kwara state which is United Theological Missionary College. The authority of CAC Worldwide recognizes the school alongside Baptist Theological Seminary, Igbara, ECWA Seminary and LIFE seminary, Ikorodu, among many others.”

“I was inducted as Pastor in 1988 after serving as an Evangelist for 7years, but in between my evangelistic service, I went for the Bible training from 1984 to 1987. Then, 1988 the CAC Authority did a retraining and short term course for us at Akure. Some of our Lecturers were The General Superintendent Emeritus who came during our anniversary, Pastor P.O Bandele, Late Pastor I. O. Lawal, Late Pastor M.B Oyeyemi, Late Pastor Adegoroye, Late Pastor Akintola and many of them like that. It was a good training programme. We were ordained on the 25th of September 1988.”
