Oyedepo’s life journey began in Osogbo in Osun state ion 27 September 27, 1954.
He was born to a mixed religious family. The father was a muslim and the mother belonged to the Holy Order of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church (C&S), a branch of the Aladura movement in Nigeria. .
He became “born again” in 1969, through the influence of his teacher, Betty Lasher, who took an interest in him during his high school days.

He founded the Living Faith Church World Wide (LFCWW) in 1981. The ministry was first called Liberation Faith Hour Ministries, in 1981.
He was ordained as a pastor in 1983 by Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Church. Both have remained close ever since.
Adeboye was one of the Christian leaders who paid tribute to Oyedepo on Sunday:
“To a man of God who has consistently proved that the great commission is our utmost priority as believers and has become a global phenomenon standing out as a light to his generation, I want to say a Happy Birthday to you @davidoyedepomin”, Adeboye wrote
“I pray that my Daddy will continue to take you from glory to glory and from strength to strength in Jesus name. On behalf of the Adeboye and RCCG family, Happy Birthday dear Bishop”.
