Pastor Dare Adeboye, the son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye is dead.
According to reports gathered, the 42-year-old, who was the third surviving child of the revered cleric, died in his sleep on Wednesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was based with his family.
It was gathered from reliable sources in the church that the deceased, who was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35, had ministered the previous day (Tuesday), slept but died in his sleep by Wednesday morning.
It was when his wife, Temiloluwa Adeboye noticed her husband’s unusual sleeping hours and could not reach him on the phone that she raised the alarm and he was discovered dead.
“He was not sick and did not complain of anything before the incident. Pastors in the church were summoned to pray for him, all to no avail,” a source added.
Several leaders of the church, who confirmed the incident, said they could not comment on it.
The Head of Media and Public Relations, RCCG, Pastor Olaitan Olubiyi, however, confirmed the tragedy on Thursday morning.
He said, “It is true. The incident happened in Eket where he was based. I don’t have the details for now. Maybe before the end of today, we will issue a statement.”
Dare would have been 43 years old next month, June.
Pastor Dare has held previous positions as the Senior Pastor of RCCG House of Praise Birmingham, the Provincial Youth Pastor of RCCG Kaduna Province 1, and RCCG Kaduna Region 8 Youth Pastor.
Also, he has held various posts such as the RCCG Youth Affairs National & International Director of Programs, Chairman Organizing Committee of 70hrs Messiah’s Marathon Praise, National Youth Convention, and Northern Zone Abuja RCCG SHIFT programs.
All these positions have allowed him to understand the various dynamics of young people across the globe and how to increase the church’s influence. He has dedicated his life to training and mentoring young people on making the most of their faith anywhere they find themselves.
Pastor Dare Adeboye also creates opportunities for young people to feel empowered and be ready to carry on the mantle of the church and to keep promoting the church’s mission and goals. Pastor Dare Adeboye is happily married to Mrs. Temiloluwa Adeboye and they are blessed with lovely kids.
May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
