Jimmy Odukoya, the son of the Fountain of Life Church’s late founder Taiwo Odukoya, has been appointed as the church senior pastor.
The disclosure was made on Sunday during church services at the headquarters office in Lagos.
Pastor Rotimi Okpaise stated in a sermon to the congregation that the late Taiwo Odukoya had discussed his succession plan with the members of the Board of Trustees before he passed away.
Jimmy was chosen as the Senior Pastor and Board Chairperson by the BoT, as stated by Okpaise.
Jimmy Odukoya is a Nollywood actor and musician who started his acting career in 2016 after featuring in ‘Baby Shower’.
He has played one of the lead roles — Oba Ade — in Netflix’s ‘Woman King’ movie and has also been featured in movies like ‘Lifting the Veil’, ‘I am Nazzy’, and ‘Oga Pastor’, among others.
Aside from acting, Jimmy is also a motivational speaker, dancer, and fitness enthusiast.
In January 2021, in an interview with actress, Iretiola Doyle, he revealed that being a pastor does not in any way affect his acting career.
He said: “How does being a pastor affect my acting career? I don’t believe it, some people have different opinions, one is if I am an actor, I should be a Christian actor and I say there is no such thing.”
