The Mission Director of Christ Apostolic Church,Worldwide, 
Pastor Caxton Segun Fasuyi, who marks his 58th birthday today May 5th, 2020 in this interview with 'Gbenga Bankole speaks on what life taught him at 58 and other interesting issues. EXCERPT !

How do you feel to be celebrating another birthday?

I feel great and I appreciate the Almighty God for sparing my life to witness another year.

How can you describe the journey since the last 58 years?

We thank God for everything. It has not been easy, but God has been sufficient for me. It has been a wonderful journey and I want to tell you that it is according to the way God had decided it. Everything has been going according to His will. Knowing Christ is the most important thing in my life. Some people look at me somehow, but I know who I am and God knows who I am. God has been so great in the course of our upbringing and everything, and that is why our children have been marvelous to people.

What has been your sustenance?

It has been the grace of God. I am nothing outside of His grace.

What has life taught you since the last 58 years?

Life has taught me patience. I thought I had money some years ago when God started blessing me. I didn’t even know that what I had then was ordinary stipend. I was arrogant then and when I am talking you will know that a rich man is talking and at that time I didn’t have anything compared to what God has done for me now. I later learnt that life is not easy, one has to cool down. Anything anyone has is given by God and God does not dwell where there is pride. I learnt that God doesn’t want us to be arrogant and I decided to change my ways to be humble and He has been helping me.

Who are those that have contributed immensely to your success since the last couple of years?

We give all glory to God and then my wife has been so supportive to my life and most especially my ministerial life. There are people God used for me who are no more but I can’t forget their contributions to my life. I can’t forget Baba Disu who was my mentor when he was alive and many others.

If there is one thing we all know you to be, it is a “philanthropist.” There is no word that can best describe your humanitarian services. What prompts that sir? What makes you to show interest in caring for people, particularly the needy?

I used to tell people anytime I have opportunity to minister that it is good to live in a difficult environment where things are not rosy. I am from a polygamous home and my father had many children. They used to serve our foods together and it was always not enough. It depends on how fast you can eat and the food was always hot.  If you are not fast and clever, you won’t eat anything. I have experienced hardship in life and I know it is not good to be poor. I shed tears at times when I see people who are struggling or poor. There are people who do not have anything to eat and if you have a lot to eat, you must know God blessed you because of such people. In the course of my upbringing, I learnt how to give not only to people, but also to ministers of God because my parents used to give to Pastors which I also learnt from them. It is always good for you to pass through a little bit of hardship so that God will now use that to teach you that it is not good to be poor.

What is your advice to those who are wealthy regarding supporting the needy?

We thank God on behalf of those who are wealthy. To continue to be wealthy, they should not sit on what God has done for them. They should continue to aspire more because God has more than what He has provided for them and they should spread the money to people who are not fortunate to have it. For example, God told me and my wife to evangelize and we have been doing it even before I became a Pastor. We have been planting churches before I became Pastor and it was not our wish that I should be Pastor. It was God who did it because He still wants us to do many things. About 180 Pastors are doing the work of God in the churches we have planted. The lives of those Pastors are what it is today because God has used us to brand those churches. Whoever that God gives opportunity to be wealthy should know that the money does not belong to him, but belongs to God. When you scatter (give to people) you will always have testimony because God will not leave you.

You are a reputable man of God and a successful businessman. How do you balance it?

The journey of my life was designed by God and I used to tell people nobody knows His ways. It is only God who knows how He used me to plant many churches despite the fact that I am a businessman. My motto in life is “the person that sent me is with me.” Since it is God that is leading me and I am not leading God, I will always see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.


  1. Umh.. what a great lesson to be learnt from Pastor CS Fasuyi....use your wealth to know the needy,evangelise and plant churches(people of God).
    May you never have reasons to regret doing His works in Jesus name amen.
