The Senior Pastor of Charis Family International Church is Tunde Jaiyebo. Pastor Jaiyebo attended University of Ife, Ile-Ife, Oyo State, Nigeria (now Obafemi Awolowo University) where he bagged an honours degree in Law.
After graduating from the Nigeria Law School in Lagos, Nigeria, he practiced as a Legal Practitioner for several years. He was the Pioneer President and Field Representative of Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International in the South Western Region of Nigeria and a member of the Nigeria National Executive Council.
He relocated from Nigeria to the United Kingdom in 1990 where, in addition to secular employment in the United Kingdom Government Service, was actively involved in ministry work at New Covenant Church, London.
After spending four years in London, the Lord directed him to return to Nigeria to pioneer Charis Family International Church which he started with six people but has now grown to a network of churches in Nigeria (Ibadan, Onidundu, and Lagos), South Africa and United Kingdom.
Pastor Jaiyebo now devotes his full time to teaching, writing, pastoring and leadership development. He has written over eleven books and is a columnist in Sunday Tribune, a national daily in Nigeria.
He is happily married to Mojisola Jaiyebo, a co-labourer in the work of the ministry and they have two children (Toluwanimi and Mofifoluwa).
