Globally-renowned Christian institution, Oral Roberts University, has conferred a Honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree on the general Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adenoye
The university authorities conferred on him the degree 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.”
Reacting to the award conferred on him, Adeboye 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, 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!
“I extend my sincere appreciation to the leadership of the University. God bless you all.”
In the same vein, his wife, Pastor Mrs Folu Adeboye congratulating him on the award said, “We congratulate and celebrate our father, he has indeed been of great impact to the world at large. Thank you and God continue to bless and keep you sir.”
