Meet 30 Ibadan Popular Pastors and the Churches they Run

Ibadan, the capital city of Oyo state, is blessed with good number of powerful and influential men of God. These men of God are not just popular, but they have won more souls to the Kingdom of God either through their preaching, Christian publications or awareness on both television and radio stations as well as social media and crusades. 

While some go to these men of God because of “miracles”or “Solutions” to their problems, some patronise them for soul-lifting messages. This is because each of them has different special area of calling. While some are revivalists or spirit-filled evangelists, some have been blessed with power to perform miracles. 

Some of them are so blessed with power of the word of God that they can use just the word to turn things around positively. 

I present to you list of the most talked about pastors/prophets in Ibadan. Ministries of some of these men of God have grown so big with branches all over the country and even outside the country and always like a small mecca whenever there is program.
