Every generation is blessed by humans with extraordinary qualities, endowment and superlative energy to do what ordinary seems impossible. Anywhere they go, they put indelible marks of excellence and unparallel achievements. Their motto is entrenched in Luke Chapter 1 verse 37; “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” One of these is  Pastor Michael Olasunmiboye Oyepetun, the outgoing Regional Superintendent of Babalola Region.

It was a great and fulfilled day on Saturday December 21, 2019 when the retirement and send-off service of the living legend was held at the regional headquarters of Babalola Region, CAC Eleta, Ibadan, Oyo State.

The service officially marked an end to the 46years ministerial career of the living legend which started in 1973.

Speaking at the programme, Pastor Oyepetun said Ministers of God should note that wherever the Authority of the church transferred them to is where God wants them to go.

He also urged ministers to work for the salvation of souls of people.

The Cleric appreciated God who preserves him for His work, adding that the contribution of his is enormous.

Pastor Oyepetun started his theological tutelage under Baba Abiye, in Ede. He was taken to Baba Abiye in 1971 by Pastor Ogunrinde, where he spent two years. He later received another tutelage under Pastor Olutimehin at Agege, Lagos state in 1973 where he spent another two years.

As part of personal efforts to train himself, he tried to attend ECWA Theological Seminary. He was to spend seven years, but, when he started, he only spent two years, by then, CAC had started her seminary in Ile-ife. That was how he changed to Ile-Ife CAC Seminary and spent another two years.

The first place of work of Baba Oyepetun as a minister of God was CAC Oturpo. He met Baba Abiye there. He was transferred there to plant churches. It was Baba Abiye that established CAC Oturpo in 1969. He also established other CAC assemblies at Igede, Otupa, Ogugu, Utonkan and so on. Baba Abiye later left Pastor Oyepetun there. At Otupo area of today Benue state, he planted about 15 CAC assemblies. Today, these assemblies has become DCCs and Zonal headquarters.

From Otunpo, this man of God was transferred to Oke-Igbala, Aromoko in Ekiti state today in 1981. He spent five years there, he revived a lot of churches that were not well established or the ones suffering from one problem or the other. He served under one Pastor Ago.

In 1987, the church authority transferred Pastor Oyepetun to Ede. He was promoted to the post of District Superintendent. He was transferred to Oke-Agbo in Ijebu-Igbo in 1987 and he was there till 1995. He developed all the smaller churches, virtually, they became headquarters. Also, he established churches in many area including Egbe, Apoje, and so on where CAC mission was not visible before. He bought land for the Superintendent quarters and he succeeded in building it seven year before he was transferred.

Pastor Oyepetun was transferred by the authority of CAC Worldwide in 1995 to Ede. He spent three years there before he left the place. 
In 1998 September to be précised, this amiable man of God was transferred  to Lokoja, the present Kogi state. He had been familiar with Lokoja when he was in Otunpo. The CAC authority promoted him to the position of Zonal Chairman in Lokoja in 2000. He was promoted to the positions of AGS 2 and AGS 1 after. He spent only four years there, but, he succeeded in planting many churches again which included Jegubeki and so on.

In 2003, Pastor Oyepetun was transferred from Lokoja to CAC Oke-Igbala in Ondo state. By 2006, he was transferred to CAC Agbokojo in Ibadan, Oyo state capital. On getting there, God used him greatly for revival. It was from Ibadan that he was moved to Badagry, in Lagos state. He renovated all the dilapidated churches and the mission house. He raised the church to a storey building.

In December 2012, he was transferred to Ebute Elefun, but started work on January 2013. At the general headquarters, he bought land and built English Assembly and Faith Home among others.

The biography of this great man of God will not be completed without making reference to his sojourn at the CACMA. Pastor Oyepetun was appointed the National Chairman of CACMA in 2007.

The CAC Authority from Ebute-Elefun appointed Pastor Oyepetun the Regional Superintendent of Babalola Region in January 2018.
