Pastor Yemi Awodiran is the current Resident Pastor of Winners Chapel International, Calgary, Alberta. A graduate of Banking and Finance from The Polytechnic Ibadan, Pastor Yemi was ordained as a pastor in October 2009 by the presiding Bishop of this Commission, Bishop David Oyedepo in New York U.S.A. Pastor Yemi received his calling from Ephesians 3:8 – Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ.
He has been given the privilege of fulfilling this vision by vigorously pursuing the Liberation Mandate given to his spiritual father and Presiding Bishop of this great commission, Bishop David Oyedepo in an 18hr encounter over three decades ago:
“The hour has come to liberate the world from all oppressions of the devil through the preaching of the word of faith, and I am sending you to undertake this task.”
This Mandate like wildfire has spread around the world including the United States and especially the state of Georgia. We have witnessed and still witnessing the state of Georgia yielding to the Liberation Mandate.
Pastor Yemi is joyfully married to Sharon and they are blessed with 2 children, Miguel and Faith.
