Pastor Olakunle Yusuf could be described as a man of many parts. He is a pastor, and a media and public relations consultant with over two decades experience spanning both print and electronic media.
But in spite of all these, this young man did not stop there as he went to obtained Post Graduate Diploma from the Redeemed Christian Bible College, main campus. to become a pastor.
“I never knew I could become a pastor until God dealt with me. I was a minister with the Redeemed Christian Church of God. Doing well until life happened. As a staunch Christian, I do believe in tithing. Doing this was both rewarding and fulfilling.
But this later turned out to be my Achilles’ heel. I can’t recall the year, sometime around 2005 and 2006; one pastor (name withheld) was transferred to the parish where I was serving as minister.
He never saw the reason why I should be paying tithes, especially in cheques.” Pastor Olakunle revealed.
Speaking further on his call to evangelism, Pastor Yusuf said, “I was called by God.”
He added, “I’m not finding it challenging coping with these tasks. My experiences over the years both as a minister and consultant came in handy. This later metamorphosed into public relations. This never came as surprise. I majored in Public Relations and Advertising, Master’s degree.”
But for him he has never been tempted by the opposite sex, simply because “I make Discipline my watch word. Many pastors sexually abuse women members for lack of discipline” concludes Pastor Olakunle who mentioned Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye as his role model.
