The Redeemed Christian Church of God was born in 1952, destined by the Lord Himself to take the world for Him. Sometime in the early 70s, God had spoken to Pa Akindayomi about his successor. The Lord told him that this man, who was not a memeber of the Church then, would be a young educated man. Thus when a young University Lecturer joined the church in 1973, Papa was able to recognize him in the Spirit as the one that the Lord had spoekn about in the past. This pan, Enoch Adejare Adeboye who was then a lecturer of Mathematics at the University of Lagos soon became involved in the church. He became one of the interpreters translating Pa Akindayomi's sermons from Yoruba to English. He was Ordained a pastor of the church in 1975.
When Pa Akindayomi was preparing to meet his creator, He sent for Pastor Adeboye and spent several hours sharing with him the details of the covenant and the plans of the Lord for the church. Even though a year before this, the Lord had revealed to pator Adeboye the he would be Papa's successor. Pa Josiah Akindayomi was 71 years old when he died as the Lord has revealed. Pastor Adeboye was appointed as the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
