Popular Nigerian Pastors Above 70 Still Vibrant In Kingdom Business

The Bible says, the glory of the youth is in their strength, but old men in their grey hair (Prov 20;29). Even the young men shall utterly fall, and get weary, but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as Eagle, they shall walk and not be weary, run and not faint. (Is 40:)

Also, In Rom 8: 29 For those God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified.  Certain men have defied the law of nature and tapped into the Supernatural to achieve what they have today. These men are fruitful, resilient, vibrant, sound, energetic and still in the Kingdom business with no retirement yet in View.

Nigeria is blessed with great servants of God who are true to the call, faithful and have a great reputation internally and globally.


Below is the list of servants of God who are above 70 years and have enjoyed supernatural strength from the past and still waxing in the euphoria. Their results stand the taste of time and relevance in the kingdom amazing even in their old age.

1. Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Enoch Adejare Adeboye is the General Overseer (G.O.)of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG). Adeboye was born on March 2, 1942 (aged 79). Although Adeboye wasn’t the founder of RCCG, he only took over from his father in the Lord, Pa Josiah Akindayomi of blessed memory. Adeboye was ordained as one of the ministers of the ministry in 1977 (age 35), and 4 years later in 1981, Adeboye was made the Head of RCCG after the death of Akindayomi.

From simple calculations, it is revealed its been 44 years since Adeboye was ordained a minister and 40 years since he was made the G.O. of RCCG. That is, Adeboye’s walk with the Lord in life and ministry has gone beyond 4 decades. In a matter of months, Adeboye will be 80 years old, but it does not look like he is retiring from the active service of the Lord anytime soon.

2. Pastor W.F. Kumuyi

Williams Folorunsho Kumuyi is the founder and General Superintendent (G.S.) of Deeper Life Bible Church. Kumuyi was born on June 6, 1941 (aged 80). In 1973 (aged 32), as a lecturer at the University of Lagos, Kumuyi began ministry, but not on a large scale. He held a fellowship meeting, which had a population of 15 students who were interested in hearing God’s word.

Going by the calculations, Kumuyi has been actively serving the Lord for about 40 years now and has been leading the Deeper Life Bible Church for 39 years. Kumuyi may be ageing in the flesh but is waxing strong in the Spirit.
