Office of The Chancellor

Dr David Olaniyi Oyedepo, Chancellor Covenant University, Canaanland, Ota, in Ogun State, Nigeria; had his early education in Nigeria and later earned a Ph.D in Human Development, from Honolulu in Hawaii, USA.

Dr. Oyedepo has significantly impacted many spheres of life, especially in Church ministry and lately in the educational sector.

An ordained minister of the gospel, his entrance into full-time ministry in 1981 brought honour, dignity, and colour to the hitherto unattractive pulpit ministry. This change occurred in a country where the church was synonymous with poverty.

By dint of hard work, commitment, and dedication to vision, Dr. Oyedepo is today the President of Living Faith Church Worldwide Inc., a vibrant church network in over 250 cities and towns in Nigeria. In addition, he is the Senior Pastor at Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland, a 50,000 seat capacity Church auditorium renowned to be the largest in the world.

He is also the President of World Mission Agency Inc. (WMA), a Christian missionary organization with mission stations in over 40 nations in Africa, including Europe, Jamaica, and America.

Dr. Oyedepo has a great passion for knowledge and research. This love has translated into the establishment of many vibrant educational institutions. These include the Word of Faith Bible Institute (WOFBI), Faith Academy, Kingdom Heritage School, and Covenant University.

Covenant University, an institution he founded in 2002, is currently pioneering a revolution in education in Nigeria and the African Continent.

With the motto- Raising a New Generation of Leaders, the University was founded on a profound philosophical departure platform of moving Nigeria’s education from form to skill, from knowledge to empowerment, from figures to future-building, from legalism to realism, from points to facts and from mathematics to “life-matics.”

Under his visionary leadership and mentorship and within nearly a decade of existence, Covenant University has challenged the old records, dazed the doubting Thomases, and blazed the trail in Nigeria’s tertiary education system.
