Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It's about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers.”Robin S. Sharma

The District Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Oke-Aanu District, Pastor Samuel Olusegun Ojo who marks his 62nd birthday today, is among leaders who have made unquantifiable impacts in the lives of almost everybody they met. He is a Man of God par excellence who has used, and still using his God given wealth to bless lives and depopulate the kingdom of hell. God has also used him to planted many churches for His glory.

Pasto Ojo was born on the 10th of March 1957 at Baptist hospital Ogbomosho. His father, late Pa David Adebayo Ojo worked with Western Nigeria Water Corporation for many years at Ede in Osun state. Also, his Mother, Mrs. Esther Adebayo Ojo was a trader. Apparently, the journey of Pastor Ojo to Christ Apostolic Church started with his parent, although they were predominantly Baptist.

His Primary school education was at Local Authority Primary School, Ede in 1964 to 1969. He finished Grammar school in 1974 after which he was an auxiliary teacher for a year and half.  After then he went to National Bank of Nigeria Limited to work as a banker. Incidentally, he was posted to Ogbomosho from the District office at Ibadan and he was there till 1981. All along this period, they have been revelation about his calling into the ministry, but he didn’t take it serious. He was of the view that he can do some other works for God without becoming a Pastor. He got married to Prophetess/Evang. Deborah Ojo who happens to be the Vice General Lady Evangelist of CAC Worldwide in 1981.

In 1994, Pastor Ojo had the privilege of being appointed as an Elder at Itire District Headquarters during Pastor A.O Akinosun tenure as the District Superintendent. In 1996 he was appointed the District Secretary for Itire District still under Pastor Akinosun and he occupied the post for 20years.

He was ordained as a Pastor in 1999. This was because he and his wife were planting churches. By the grace of God they have planted more than six churches apart from the District Headquarters. He relinquished the post of Itire District Secretary in 2016 after CAC Oke-Aanu became a recognized centre preparing for District status in CAC. He became the Secretary of Itire DCC in the year 2017 which he holds till date.
