He graduated from University of Miami with a professional Bachelors Degree in Architecture and practiced in Florida before his eventual call by God into ministry. Pastor Paul Adefarasin
Formerly a drug addict himself, he is well motivated to preach against all social vices that bedevils humanity. He is well known for his publicly aired programme Something is about to happen.
As a visionary, he obeyed the leading of God to start the Lagos Experience Gospel Musical Concert and the program was first produced in 2006. Now, the Lagos Experience has become a landmark event that draws gospel music greats of this age.
Pastor Paul Adefarasin is married to pastor Ifeanyi Adefarasin, and together, they have three lovely children.
Today, January 25, his birthday, Adefarasin is not leaving any stone unturned in talking about God’s faithfulness in his life. He took to social media to chronicle how his life changed when he met with Jesus.
“What a joy to be blessed with another year. I’m supremely grateful to God for every day He has given me, for every person who has been a part of the journey, for every experience that has brought me to this place because THIS is the right place to be to receive all that is required to ‘Become’ what He has destined that I should be … and I thank Him for another year within which to praise Him and live my life in service to Him.
Friends, Jesus Christ is the glory of my story. My life truly began when I surrendered to Him and fell in love with Him; He is the essence of who I am – everything good about me emanates from Him. He has blessed me with an amazing wife, beautiful children and a loving family; He has given me mentors to guide me and men and women to lead; He has made me a messenger of His gospel – the greatest story ever told of the greatest love ever known … and He is not done yet.
He is the One who died that we might have life and have it in abundance. He raises lowly men up and makes them more than they ever dreamed they could ‘Become’. He is the reason we are confident that no matter what season you face, if you only believe in His word, He can and will do exceeding, abundantly above all you can ask, think or imagine.
Our hearts are open to receive the fullness of the promise of God as He works in and through us to cause us to ‘Become’ in Jesus name. I am confident that the best is yet to come and I hope you are as expectant as I am.
Thank you all so much for your greetings and felicitations as I turn another page in my many years on earth, do join us in thanking this King of Glory… It’s my birthday!”
