It was on that beautiful day of the 24" of December, 1948 that a bouncing baby boy was born into the family of Pa. Joshua Idowu Agbabiaka and Mama Abigael Aina Agbablaka both of blessed memory. The baby boy was born into Alagunrunji Compound at Ikiran street in that great Evangelistic and Gospel town known as Efon Alaye in Ekiti State.

On the eighth day, the then baby and now a great and highly respected man of God was christened and named Joseph Oluwasegun Oluwadare Agbabiaka. He was born into a devout christian family.

He grew up with the likes of Kayode Gboluwaga of the same compound and town whose father was one of the followers and trainees of our great father-Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola.


He started his elementary education at CAC St Stephen's Primary School, Erekesan street, Efon Alaye in the year 1956. After two years, he was withdrawn from the school by our great father in the Lord (Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola) on the instruction of the Almighty God. In January 1958, he continued with his Primary Education at CAC School, Olugbode, Ibadan.

He was again withdrawn from Olugbode and moved to CAC Primary School, Alagbagba via Abeokuta. There was reason again to move him to CAC Pry School Olowode, Igbo Elerin, Ibadan where he eventually completed his Primary Education in the year 1962. For his secondary education, he was admitted into CAC Secondary Modern School, Ondo, in Ondo state in January, 1963 and completed the modern three certificate course in December, 1965. It was at this time that his guardian and father in the Lord in person of the late Pastor (Oba) I.B. Akinyele (Olubadan of Ibadan) passed on. This development forced him to leave Ondo town and returned to Ibadan.

On arrival back to Ibadan in 1965, because of his academic brilliance and academic thirst, he enrolled again at Okebadan Grammar School, Ibadan for further secondary education in the year 1966 and 1967. It is also on record that he attended Origbo Community Grammar School, Ipetunmodu. In all primary and secondary schools attended, he demonstrated profound commitment to intellectual growth and excellence. This has been attested to by available records and information.


He started his first ministerial training known at that time as TULE under the tutelage of Baba/Pastor 1.5.8 Odusona in 1965 at Ibadan. Thereafter and while serving in various stations, he equally had the opportunity of other theological.

(a) CAC Bible Training Centre (BTC) at Efon Alaye under the leadership of Mama Pearse between 1971 and 1972

It was at the early part of his life (as a young boy) that our great father in the Lord (Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola) first prophesied and delivered the Lord is message to him and his parents that the young Agbabiaka had the call of God upon his life.

On arrival back to Ibadan from Ondo town, as a result of God's call upon his life, he was taken to our late father Pastor J.S.B. Odusona to begin his ministerial training known as TULE in compliance with the Lord's directive through Oba I.B. Akinyele-the then Olubadan of Ibadan.

In January 1968, Pastor J.S.B. Odusona (his trainer and mentor) prayed, released and graduated him from the ministerial tutelage then known as TULE. Sequel to this, he was posted by our father Pastor/Prophet Akinade (a.k.a Budale) as a catechist to his first ministerial station at Christ Apostolic Church, Oke Ayo, Olodo, Ibadan in the same year 1968. From here to lle ife through the efforts of our former President Baba/Pastor E. T Latunde and late Pastor P.O.
