BACKGROUND AND MINISTRY.

Though he graduated as a Mechanical Engineer from University, he found his greatest fulfillment in his present mandate – according to him.
Before his present mandate, he worked as a lecturer at pen Cast Polytechnic, Auchi between the years 1985 to 1986. And everything changed when he met Bishop David Oyedepo (future founder of Living Faith Church). The two met at a Christian Student Fellowship in the year 1980s and what he was in Bishop David Oyedepo inspired him to love God more.
David Abioye received the call of God on his life and entered into full-time ministry at a time when ministers of the Word were tagged failure or poor but he changed the narratives. Looking back to that time, he said “…. I and my wife, newly wedded then had to start up in a small cubicle for an apartment. Among my most priceless possession was my face cap and a 6 spring mattress”.
His relationship with Bishop David Oyedepo surpasses brotherhood to spiritual mentor. When Bishop David’s ministry departed to Lagos, David Abioye stayed behind in Kaduna as the Senior Pastor of Garden of Faith, the former national headquarter of the church. David Abioye became a Bishop in the church in 1993.
