Meet The Oldest Preacher In Nigeria

The holy Bible records in “Psalms 91:16 – With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation”. This verse of the Bible can be seen in Apostle O. Godwin Nwoye the oldest man of God in Nigeria.

Born on the 11th of may, 1929 to the family of Umuchifu-ejim clan, Umuchita kingdom in isiogbo community, Nara Unateze, Nkanu East Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Apostle O. Godwin Nwoye accepted Christ into his life in the year 1942 in the then Christ Apostolic Church at Asata Enugu. Thereafter, he met with the Apostolic Church General Suprintendent, Rev. Hawkins. The meeting changed the life of Apostle Godwin Nwoye when the General Suprintendent prophesied that he will be a great servant of God.

The prophecy stirred up serious hunger in Apostle Godwin’s heart to know God more and to love, honor and serve Him.

In the year 1953, Apostle O. Godwin Nwoye became an interpreter to late Rev Thomas Wyatt and his wife, the well known American. The meeting with Rev. Thomas and wife transformed his life to Glory.

Rev. O. Godwin Nwoye then had to quit from the Nigerian police force and fully entered into ministry of serving God. He enrolled into theological school and obtained a certificate in Theology and then serves under the tutelage of Apostle Ayo Babalola ( The father of Africa Pentecostal). A fresh annointing fell on him and he received a direction and instructions from holy spirit.
