Pastor Tunde Bakare

Pastor Tunde Bakare


Dr. ‘Tunde Bakare was born into a family steeped in very rich Islamic heritage in Abeokuta (Ogun State, Nigeria). He became born again on September 24, 1974 after a unique encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. He studied law at the University of Lagos between 1977 and 1980. He was called to the Bar in 1981 and following his NYSC, he practiced law with Gani Fawehinmi Chambers, Rotimi Williams & Co and Burke & Co, Solicitors. He established his own law firm Tunde Bakare & Co (El-Shaddai Chambers) in October 1984. In May 1988, at the peak of his legal career he was called into ministry and helped to pioneer the 1st Model parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.

Subsequently, he founded The Latter Rain Assembly that’s today known as the Citadel Global Community Church (CGCC) on April 1, 1989, and is currently its Serving Overseer.

Pastor Bakare was God’s instrument to deliver the Word at the inauguration of Glory Christian Ministries on March 8th, 1992.

He has since been the most constant face at our annual conventions and meetings through the years. A constant friend and partner like no other, Pastor Tunde Bakare has always been there, willing and making great sacrifices to assist, counsel and help maintain and preserve the purity of this heavenly mandate.

Pastor Bakare, and his lovely wife Layide has been a great influence and blessing to Glory Christian Ministries in so many ways from the beginning. They have never made or placed any conditionality for their availability either privately or publicly each time we’ve needed their attention. And it is for that sort of unconditional love and acceptance that we remain forever grateful for their lives.

So today, as he gets ready to once again impact our lives, let us all stand together and with deep love and appreciation, receive back home God’s choice Servant and our father in the Lord, Pst Tunde Bakare.
