Thank you for not only letting me follow Jesus so hard but for doing the same.
I look forward to forever with you.

Bishop Oyedepo is also the Chancellor of Covenant University and Landmark University.
Let’s meet his children one by one.
DAVID OYEDEPO JNR:
Meet Bishop Oyedepo’s first son and first child – David Oluwamakinde Oyedepo (Jnr). He is 36 years old, born June 1, 1983, exactly 9 months after his parents’ wedding on August 30th, 1982.
After his birth when Bishop Oyedepo inquired to know the name of the newly born son, according to him, God told him that “Another Warrior has come”. This led to David’s native name ‘Oluwamakinde ‘ (God has brought victory).
He is married to Kemi Olubu-Oyedepo. Their wedding held July 2008. They have 2 beautiful kids, a boy and girl.
David Jr is an Alumni of both Oral Roberts University (ORU) and Oklahoma Christian University.
He was ordained as a pastor by renowned American preacher, Kenneth Copeland in May 2007.
David Oyedepo Jr formerly pastored the London Branch of his father’s church but is now the resident pastor of the Ministry’s headquarters church (Faith Tabernacle).
He preached his first message at Faith Tabernacle on March 24th 2013, the day after his grandmother’s burial. He was introduced by Bishop David Abioye as the ‘next generation’.
According to reports, in August 2016, Bishop Oyedepo and Mummy Faith Oyedepo went on vacation. Pastor David Oyedepo Jr then ministered in 5 services on Sunday at Faith Tabernacle. It was the first time anyone aside Bishop Oyedepo would do that.
David Oyedepo Jnr is the youngest Vice President of the Living Faith Church. There are 4 other Vice Presidents.
In 2004, he became the youngest member of the Covenant University Board of Regents (the governing council).
Meet the second child of Bishop Oyedepo who was also ordained by Kenneth Copeland in May 2007 just like his elder brother.
He tied the knot in 2010 with Ayomitide Omogbadegun and they are blessed with 4 children – Israel, Queen Esther, Joshua and Baby Peace who just turned 2 years old.

Third child and first daughter of the Oyedepo family is beautiful Love who is also deep into serving in her father’s ministry.
Love Oyedepo-Ogah is often seen on mission trips with her mother Faith Oyedepo.
Love wedded her husband Stephen Ogah, one of Bishop Oyedepo’s personal aides, in March 2013.
Reports say Love and Stephen met while they were students at the Covenant University. Even though he was many years her senior, they were able to maintain a great friendship.
Interestingly, the friendship took a new turn when they were both on the bridal party of Love’s elder brother’s wedding.
