Biography of Prophet Samson Oluwamodede
Prophet Samson Oluwamodede was born into a Muslim family by the name Ogunmodede in Iwo, Osun State, Nigeria. He had his primary education at Ilupeju Grammar School, Iwo. In his encounters with Christian gatherings, the clergy confessed that he hardly close his eyes whenever prayer was in-session just to be sure if the Pastor is doing anything besides praying. He finally gave his life to Christ in 1987 and was baptized that same year in Christ Apostolic Church (C.A.C) Oke-Igbala, Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria.
One day, Prophet Samson Oluwamodede had a divine encounter during a 3-day Marathon Fasting and Prayers in the Church. On that glorious day, he saw a vision, in his word, he said:
“I saw that the Church building roof disappeared and the sun was shining that very night again; later I saw a white man…the hand that I saw went straight into my mouth, and a voice followed it saying, what I gave to Peter and John is what I have given to you.”
Immediately the vision disappeared, and suddenly he woke up. This spiritual experience gave the Prophet an inkling that God was up to something in his life.
Before his conversion from Islam to Christianity, Prophet/Evang. Samson Oluwamodede studied Quran for seven years at the Answarudeen Primary School and later became a butcher for another seven years, he also served as a newspaper vendor, then as a petrol attendant and Civil Servant respectively. Unlike his Muslim days which he had to go to Quranic school to understand what the religion is all about. However, it was a different issue when he started his ministerial work as he never understudied any man of God neither does he attend any Bible school for discipleship before beginning his ministry. The Man of God receives divine inspirations and direct instructions from the Holy Spirit to minister or deal with both spiritual and canal issues.
However, his Christian life started under two great men of God – Pastor Alonge and Salami Adeoye respectively who both serve at the Christ Apostolic Church (C.A.C). Today, Prophet Samson Oluwamodede is the General Overseer of Prayer Centre Church of God with headquarters at Km. 7, Adofure, Idanre Road, Akure, Ondo State. He is passionate about breaking the yoke of Satan on the lives of people and bringing them into liberty in Christ Jesus.
