'' Behind Adeboye's extraordinary success is his reputation for honesty. While other Pentecostal pastors (including some Nigerians) have been accused of financial misdeeds or faking supernatural powers, Adeboye remains above the fray. Nigerian government leaders seek his input on pressing social issues. He recently made a public-service announcement condemning discrimination against people with HIV. He distributes his message globally through Facebook and MySpace, a self-published magazine called "The Mandate," and a digital-cable channel called Open Heavens TV. His appearance is straitlaced: he always wears a pinstriped suit, a gleaming white shirt and a bow tie''.

Pastor Adeboye is an embodiment of humility, simplicity,wisdom and   a carrier of the manifest presence of God.

As we join the world to celebrate his 78th birthday today, from tomorrow we shall be posting his answers to vital issues gleaned from his secret place with the Lord. Its a life changing and transformation posts that will quicken your mind to the renewal you have waited for for so long.
