All hands are on deck come Tuesday, 2nd, April, 2019, ahead of the celebration of one of Nigeria’s most celebrated man of God, Pastor Wole Oladiyun better known as Baba Aladura, of the Christ Livingspring Apostolic Ministries, as he is set to add another year to his age.
Pastor Wole, who will be turning 60 years of age, is not just known for his love for the pulpit but for his philanthropic lifestyle which has seen him, cater or both the aged and those in need either through scholarships or supporting communities in every little way he can.
He has grown to become one man of God who does not stop people from having access to him despite the tight protocols always around him as he has continued to show that learning how to accommodate people is through understanding the word of God.
He was born and raised in the Christ Apostolic Church (C.A.C) founded by the late Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola. There he was imparted early in life with the raw power of the Holy Spirit. There, too, the seed of Heaven was sown in him for the old-time prayer, evangelistic and deliverance ministry that CLAM is renowned for today.
His ministerial training was mixed and varied, beginning at the Latter Rain Bible School, and then at the Deeper Christian Life Bible School and the Victory Christian Church, all in Lagos. He held his first leadership position at the Faith Family Bible Church, Lagos, where he was appointed Assistant Pastor to Rev. (Dr.) D. K. Aboderin, the man he fondly calls “My Daddy in the Lord.”
He is a man born to pray, but also with a consuming passion for soul winning. And he leads the way for the ministry under the umbrella of Clam Global Outreach (CLAMGO), Clam’s soul winning and evangelistic arm, through village and city-wide crusades and other outreaches. He also presides over the Ministers’ Apostolic Fire Convocation (MAFCO), an annual 3-day apostolic retreat forum for Christian leaders to be revived with the “Upper Room” unction.
Before going into full-time ministry, he distinguished himself as a brilliant building/civil engineer and successful business man. He rose to the position of chief engineer at an indigenous engineering firm. He was also an active member of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International.
A true family man, he is married to Pastor Bukola Oladiyun (nee Olubakinde), who is the Director of Family Life in the ministry, and they are blessed with four prophetic children. Pastor Oladiyun loves philanthropy, reading, music, playing the drums, lawn tennis and driving.
