Pastor Leke Adeboye is a Nigerian Pastor famously known as the youngest son of Pastor Enoch A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG). Like his father and other siblings, Leke is a pastor, working as an assistant to his father. He has three older siblings, including two brothers and a sister. His mother, Foluke Adeboye, is also a pastor, popularly called mummy G.O.
Leke Adeboye is the Youngest Child of Pastor E.A. Adeboye and His Wife Foluke
Born Leke Oluwagbemileke Adeboye on May 20, 1982, Leke is the youngest of four children born to Pastor E.A. Adeboye by his wife, Foluke Adeboye. He was born in Lagos State. However, his family later moved to Redemption Camp in Ogun State. There, he spent his early years and completed his basic education.
Pastor Leke’s father, E.A. Adeboye, is the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. His mother, Foluke Adeboye, is also a televangelist and pastor in the same church. Being the wife of the General Overseer, she is widely known as mummy G.O.
Growing up, Leke had a not-so-wonderful childhood. As he recounts, when his family moved to Redemption Camp, the place was just a large area of land, without light or access to modern facilities such as telephone and others. Even the surrounding villages were yet to be developed at the time.
His family stayed there, and his father began his ministry, which has become widely known in Nigeria and beyond. At the same time, Pastor Leke learned the rudiments of being a preacher from his father, and today, he has come to be his assistant.
He Completed His Higher Education in England
Pastor Leke attended Command Secondary School, Apata, Ibadan. Soon after his graduation, he moved to England where he completed his tertiary education. He first attended the University of Hertfordshire, England, where he studied Aerospace Technology and Engineering.
Although it is unknown when he graduated, after his graduation, Pastor Leke enrolled for his master’s degree. This time, he attended Bournemouth University, where he acquired a master’s degree in Engineering project management. After finishing his master’s degree, Pastor Leke wanted to tow a different career path, thus utilizing what he studied in the university.
However, he never knew he would join his father’s ministry where he has been working as an assistant pastor and special adviser to his father. Since his return from England, Pastor Leke has become an integral part of his father’s ministry to date.
Pastor Leke Adeboye Works as His Father’s Special Assistant
Although the ministry was a family affair, Pastor Leke never saw it as one, and neither did his family. When the opportunity to employ a special assistant for his father came, Pastor Leke applied like everyone else. According to him, he had to apply even though the position had the lowest salary. However, after eight hours of rigorous interviews, he got the job and became his father’s special personal assistant.
According to Pastor Leke, his job description entails working with his father, the General Overseer, to see that he gets his primary assignment done without any hassle. He has continued to do the job to date, and his impact in the ministry can’t be over-emphasized.
Asides from working in their family ministry, Pastor Leke Adeboye hasn’t disclosed the details of his other endeavors to the media. The salary he earns from his current position is also a thing of mystery. That notwithstanding, being Adeboye’s son has made him incredibly famous, and many have come to liken his personality to that of his father.

His wife, Titilope Adeboye, is a mass communication graduate. She also has a master’s degree in International Business from Loughborough University. Titilope works as the CEO of Mimi’s Confectionary and Oasis Suya Eatery and Shawarma.
They Are Parents to Three Children
For a union that has lasted a little over a decade and still counting, Pastor Leke Adeboye and his wife have welcomed three children. However, Pastor Adeboye’s son has never shared information regarding his children in the media space. According to some sources, the couple welcomed their first child sometime in 2012. Besides that, nothing much is known about his other children.
Currently, even the pictures of his children can’t be found on any social media platform. Given that their marriage has lasted a little over a decade, their oldest child might be around 11 years old as of this writing. It is also hard to tell the schools they attend and if they would follow in their parents’ footsteps.
