WHO WE ARE
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
THE JOURNEY THUS FAR
In October of 2005, the Lord spoke expressly to Pastor Segun and Funke Obadje who were living in Abuja, the Federal Capital of Nigeria located in the continent of Africa. And told them to start a work for him in Ile-Ife, located in Osun State, Nigeria. Therefore, on November 11, 2005, the left Abuja for Ile-Ife in obedience to God.
The mandate God gave them was ” to preach and teach with simplicity and clarity the New Creation Realities in Christ Jesus, stressing emphatically the integrity of God’s Word by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Fourteen months after that bold step, God’s Love Tabernacle International Church (GLT) was birthed on February 4, 2007, in a small room with about ten people in attendance. In an interview with Pastor Segun Obadje, he stated “I like to stress this, GLT is not another denomination, but a movement and an on-going move of God’s Spirit to awaken the truth of His word and the reality of His blessed Holy Spirit. I must tell you, God has been faithful since we left Abuja. The Apostolic, Prophetic, Teaching and Healing Graces have been so evident in this movement.”
In that same Spirit, GLT has expanded in leaps and bounds with numerous extensions across the globe.
God instructed them to extend the work to the USA, the instruction God supernaturally worked out by sending Pastors Tunde and Bunmi Adebiyi to relocate to the States. They are presently the SMR of GLT Houston Texas.
GLT Houston, in particular, started in October of 2015, with about nine people in attendance and her official inauguration at Residence Inn by Hilton Westchase on April 16, 2016.
As a growing church, GLT Houston has been experiencing awesome testimonies, some of the great and many testimonies that is evident in GLT and is most humbling is the testimony of changed lives! and God’s unparalleled favour and open doors….…this is just the beginning!
