The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E. A Adeboye, has been conferred with an Honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree on by the renowned Christian institution, Oral Roberts University, for distinguished service and spiritual leadership in the nations.
The Citation to confer the award noted that with “thousands of spiritual sons and daughters all around the globe, Dr Adeboye has led the RCCG into expansive outreach in the nations of the world on a missionary movement built on prayer, fasting and bold witness, and Adeboye has written over 60 books.”
Extending his appreciation to the University, Baba Adeboye as he is fondly called said: “I recall that day in 1979 when I accompanied my father, Pa Josiah Akindayomi, to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to attend Kenneth Hagin’s Camp Meeting; and, how the power of God moved mightily.
“If anyone had told me then that I would be awarded an honorary degree from one of the most prestigious universities there, Oral Roberts University @oralrobertsu, I would have said the person was joking. But, looking back and seeing what God has done so far, I can’t but just say, Thank You, Jesus!”
