OUR HISTORY

Redeemed Christian Fellowship was officially inaugurated by the visionary, Pastor E. A  Adeboye the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in May 1988.

 

Redeemed Christian Fellowship was originally called “Christ Redeemer’s Fellowship” in 1984 at Obafemi  Awolowo University where the Fellowship started. The need for the establishment was becoming great as the students from other denominations on campuses were coming together.
