Origin of RCCG Shining Light Christian Connections

The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) is a world-wide evangelical pentecostal mission committed to taking the gospel of our Lord Jesus to all nations worldwide


The RCCG was established in 1952 by Pa Josiah Akindayomi. The name of the church was revealed to Pa Josiah in a vision and the Lord promised He will meet this Church on His return.


Before Pa Josiah slept in the Lord, God revealed his successor to him - a young mathmatics lecturer Enoch Adejare Adeboye.  Pastor Adeboye took over as General Overseer following Pa Josiah passing in glory.


The RCCG is involved in numerous outreach programs worldwide and has experienced exponential growth with over 10,000 parishes  worldwide. RCCG Shining Light Christian Connections is part of this growth.
