The call to serve in the Master’s vineyard is something that Pastor Tony Omoruyi Toluwalase Jegede has known and acknowledged from a very early age; when He met the Lord Jesus Christ. He has been involved in the furtherance of the gospel of God for many years and has had the honour of sharing the eternal message of Christ’s love all over the world. His desire is that everyone comes to the Son of God the way they are; with the hope that they would be changed for the better.
It is impossible to talk about his drive to serve the Lord without making mention of the greatest influence in his life – second only to Jesus Christ of Nazareth – that is, his mother (now with the Lord). Her life, love and example to her family and community convinced him that there is no greater honour a human being can have in this life than to impact his or her world to the glory of Almighty God.
He is the Senior Pastor and General Overseer of the Conquerors Congregation Ministries International Incorporated (CCMI); a vibrant Pentecostal Church with branches in Australia and Nigeria. Concerning his educational background, he had his primary and secondary school education in Benin-City, Nigeria and studied Petroleum Engineering at the Open Cast Polytechnic (in Benin-City as well), after which he worked in the Oil and Gas servicing industry for a period of 6 years (1999 – 2005). He is happily married and blessed with two (2) wonderful children – a boy and a girl.
