Hello, my name is Babatunde David Adeyemi, and I am receiving training in Christianity and ministry at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about online Bible classes, Click Here). I grew up in Nigeria in a town named Egbe, fondly called the Jerusalem of Nigeria. I’m married to a beautiful and amiable woman, Esther, and we both live in Egbe.
I grew up in a Christian home and a religious community without the knowledge of Christ. I participated in all church activities as a routine and for the fun of it. In 2004, I was about to round up my Secondary School education. I met with an evangelist one day on the way to my grandma’s house. The evangelist led me to Christ.
Youthful Struggles and Training in Christianity
I gained admission into a higher institution of learning two years after my Secondary School education. Therefore, I had two years at home that I spent learning a vocation. I also invariably spent time learning about the Christ I received. Christian life became real to me. However, there came the temptation to be in control of my life and spiritual dream as I got to a higher institution of learning. I still loved the Lord, but I wanted control. I had a lofty ambition that gave no room for God’s will.
However, I went to a conference in Kwara State, Nigeria, in 2011. There I met with the LORD again and rededicated my life to Him. It was a turning point in my life. The Lord was able to communicate His will afresh to me. Then I knew the Lord wanted me to serve Him in full-time Christian service.
My Marriage and Ministry
The mission began when I got married as led by God’s Spirit. Moreover, I had no formal training in Christian leadership and ministry. So, it was a challenge for me to access the religious community I sought to impact and serve with. Furthermore, I had no other vocation to pay for a theological seminary education. However, thankfully, my wife’s job affords us the privilege of daily upkeep.
