The life of Enoch Adejare Adeboye is a fulfillment of the scriptures in Zechariah

4: 10 which declare, “despise not the days of small beginnings”. Born in 1942

into a humble family in the village of Ifewara, Osun State located in the

South-western part of Nigeria Enoch Adeboye often humorously states that

his family was so poor that even the poor people called them poor. As a matter of fact, he unashamedly tells his congregation

that he never owned shoes until he was eighteen years of age. What he possessed

though were physical intangibles such as focus, consistency, diligence, ambition,

a brilliant mind and a determination to succeed in life.

In 1956 Enoch Adeboye was admitted into Ilesha Grammar School, Ilesha,

Osun State, Western Nigeria and as a youth he discovered a passion for books, and

an aptitude for science and in particular the field of Mathematics. This led to

an academic journey in the field of Mathematics against incredible odds including

but not limited to finances, the Nigerian Civil War and academic politics. By the

time he was done, Enoch Adeboye had obtained not only a Bachelors (BSc.)

degree in Mathematics from the University of Nigeria, Nnsukka, Nigeria

in 1967, but also a Masters (MSc.) Degree in Hydrodynamics and a Doctorate

Degree (PhD) in Applied Mathematics, both from the University of Lagos, Lagos,

Nigeria in 1969 and 1975 respectively.

One of the motivations for these academic achievements was Enoch Adeboye’s

passionate desire to become the youngest Vice Chancellor (University President)

of any one of the frontline Universities in Nigeria. It did seem that his academic

ambition would be realized as his academic career flourished. However, this was

not to be as a greater career awaited him in the service of the Lord. In 1967

Enoch Adeboye got married to his beloved wife Foluke Adenike Adeboye

(nee Adeyokunnu).

this is one of the pastor i love so much in Nigeria  is a fulfill man his life as torch

the life of many in the society will are in, his a blessing to the word. as he plans

to celebrate he fourth coming birthday, this my prayer for him that God will

continue blessing him with his word and wisdom and he will continue  to know

God more and more his days on health will be a blessing to the word.
