Celebrating A Life Of Faithfulness & Great Impact!
Read tributes to a man who served God and his community with his whole heart and convictions fueled by the salvation and fulfillment he found in Jesus.
“Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His faithful servant” – Psalm 116:15
We submit to the will of God, whom it has pleased to call Rev. Johnson Olatuyi home to glory yesterday Tuesday 17th August, 2021.
Rev. Olatuyi, a gifted and passionate evangelist and pastor was a devoted husband, father, grand-father and leader of leaders.
He pastored successfully in Lagos, Nigeria before relocating to Maryland, USA in June 2002, where he pioneered the Maryland church. He served two (2) terms as the National Treasurer of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) under the late Archbishop Idahosa as well as Pastor E.A. Adeboye.
He was the National overseer of Christ Gospel Mission Int. in North America and a treasured member of the General Advisory Council globally. We thank God for his devotion to the King of kings, his zeal for missions and dedication to global evangelism.
At this time of temporal separation, let us lift up his wife, children, family members and the church in prayers; committing them to the comfort of the Holy Spirit, as they focus on Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our faith at this painful period.
Necessary burial announcements would soon be made.
Rest on Soldier!
Reverend Victor Ogunkanmi, General Overseer Christ Gospel Mission Int.

Reverend (Dr) Johnson Owolabi Olatuyi was born on Saturday, September 9, 1950 into the Royal family of Oyeleke of Ootunja Ekiti and was raised by his late uncle of blessed memory,
His Royal Highness, Oba Edward Ogundeji Olatuyi, Alasin of Asin Ekiti in Ikole Local Government, Ekiti State, Nigeria. He was the first born of his father’s twelve children out of whom eight are still alive. His father, late Pa Joseph Ojo Oyeleke owned a successful tailoring business and his mother, late Yeye Usinbaka Ajeigbe was a successful petty trader. His parents feared God, prayed every morning and took them to church. The young Johnson and his siblings were disciplined whenever they did wrong.. Their parents taught them the slogan: “Always remember the son of whom you are.”
