1. Redeemer Christian Church of God (RCCG).
Pa Josiah Akindayomi invented or founded the Redeemed Christian Church of God in 1952, and Pastor E.A. Adeboye serves as the organization’s current general overseer. The largest church in Nigeria is the RCCG.
The RCCG theater, also referred to as the “redemption camp,” is situated on more than hectares of ground in Ogun State alongside the Lagos-Ibadan throughway. One million worshipers may fit in the camp alone at once, and from there, it has distributed branches across Nigeria and even outside.
Rev. Akindayomi chose Enoch Adeboye as the next General overseer. Enoch Adeboye was a lecturer in mathematics at the University of Lagos, Nigeria, as at the time he joined the church in 1973. Adeboye initially became one of the interpreters translating Akindayomi’s sermons from Yoruba to English. He was ordained a pastor of the church in 1975, and his appointment as the leader (General overseer) of the church was formalized by the posthumous reading of Akindayomi’s sealed pronouncement. In 1990, the Redeemed Christian Church of God Bible School was founded.
In 1981, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye became the General Overseer of the Church. In 1983, the land for the Redemption Camp in Mowe was purchased. In 1988, a students’ body known as the Redeemed Christian Fellowship (RCF) was established. It is the youth wing of the church concentrated within tertiary institutions of learning in the country. In 1990, Christ the Redeemer’s Friends Universal (CRFU), was established to garner financial and human resources from the very wealthy in the society. In 2005, Redeemer’s University was established.
The church is currently running under the leadership of Pastor EA Adeboye who God has helped.
