Brief History Of Apostle Segun Obadje’s Calling

In October 2005, the Lord instructed PastorsSegun and FunkeObadje, who were living in Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital, that they should leave Abuja and start working for Him in Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria. In obedience, the couple left Abuja on November 11, 2005, and went to Ile-Ife.

God told them to preach and teach about the New Creation Realities in Christ Jesus in a clear and simple way, with a strong focus on the truth of God’s Word.

14 months after they left Abuja, on February 4, 2007, about ten people met in a small room in Ile-Ife to start God’s Love Tabernacle International Church.

In one of his interviews about the mission of GLT, Pastor Segun said, “I like to stress this, GLT is not another denomination, but a movement; and an ongoing move of God’s Spirit to awaken the truth of His word and the reality of His blessed Holy Spirit.”

I have to tell you that since we left Abuja, God has been good. The Apostolic, Prophetic, Teaching, and Healing Grace have been so clear in this movement.

The church now has its own land and a hall that can hold an average of 1,700 people. It also has a number of branches and outreach programs inside and outside of Nigeria.

God’s Word is true. The path of the righteous is like a bright light that keeps getting brighter until the perfect day.
