In a multi-cultural, diverse and highly populated enclave such as Nigeria, it is possible that many influential and rare gems go unnoticed.
When Pentecostal Pastors are the topic in Nigeria, the usual names bandied are that of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy, Pastor E.A Adeboye, Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith to mention a few.
Some Pastors are more averse to media publicity and fanfare, Pastor David Ogbueli perfectly fits the bill of “front-liners who fly under the radar”.
