PASTOR ADEBOYE BEFORE THE FAME
Born on 2 March 1942 in Ifewara, near Ife, in Osun State, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye is 77 years old.
He went to the University of Nigeria (UNN) in Nsukka but because of the Nigeria Civil War, he completed his first degree in the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics in 1967.
That same year, he married his wife Foluke Adenike.
2 years later in 1969, he went back to school and obtained a master’s degree in hydrodynamics from University of Lagos.
Pastor Adeboye joined the Redeemed Christian Church of God in 1973 and began interpreting Yoruba to English by Pastor Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi.
In 1975, he obtained a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Lagos. He holds a position as Professor of Mathematics at University of Lagos.
He was ordained a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in 1977. And in 1981, after the death of Pastor Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi, the founder of RCCG, he became General Overseer of the church.

PASTOR ADEBOYE’S MARRIAGE:
Not many people are aware that the general overseer worldwide of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Adejare Enoch Adeboye had to suspend his white wedding to Mummy Foluke because of lack of money back in the 1960s.
Pastor Adeboye as a young man first got married traditionally to his wife Folu in 1967 but because he could not afford the money to have a white wedding, he suspended it till two years later.
Their white wedding in church held in 1969, two years after their traditional wedding.
Pastor Adeboye said since he couldn’t afford a wedding ring then, he promised his wife later that she would never lack anything and he has since kept that promise.
When the young Adeboye could finally afford a wedding ring, he refused to buy or wear one.
