Isaac Oyedepo is the youngest son of Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, popularly known as Winners Chapel. In September, Bishop Oyedepo appointed his son as the Youth Pastor of the Youth Alive Fellowship (YAF), the youth wing of the Living Faith Church.
He was recently reported to have stepped down his role as a pastor in his father’s youth church. However, he has addressed speculations on his alleged separation from Living Faith Church Worldwide.
An online platform, Church Gist, reported that the younger of Bishop Oyedepo’s two sons had stepped down from his role as the Youth Pastor of Winners Chapel but no official statement or resignation letter was made public.
Setting the record straight, the son of the renowned cleric, took to his official social media handles on the 31st of October, 2023 to reveal his stance with his family and father’s church, Living Faith Church.
Pastor Isaac, who was ordained as a pastor in May 2007 by famous American televangelist Kenneth Copeland, said he remains a steadfast member of Living Faith Church, dedicated to the service in the Body of Christ.
Before he was appointed a Youth Pastor, he had served as the resident pastor of the Living Faith Church International, Maryland, USA, since October 2018.
His statement reads,
“It is worthy of note that no external statements have been authorized or verified by me.
“I must state that there are no complications in my relationship with my beloved family and my beloved dad (Bishop David Oyedepo), who have stood by and supported me over the years, nor are there any in my commitment to my church-turned-home, Living Faith Church (also known as Winners Chapel International).
I remain a steadfast member of Living Faith Church, dedicated to service in the Body of Christ.
On Tuesday November 28th 2023, Pastor Isaac , revealed his own ministry, ‘The Isaac Oyedepo Evangelistic Ministries’.
He made this announcement by sharing a video on his X account titled “Unveiling of the Isaac Oyedepo Evangelistic Ministries”.

In the viral video, Isaac and his wife, Ayomitide, knelt and were blessed by Bishop David Oyedepo, his father.
Bishop Oyedepo was heard saying in part, “As hands are laid on you, I pray for unusual grace for sustainable connectivity that will keep you going without sweat.
“I pray that impact will be your goal not good preaching but great impact and I pray that your life will interpret your message in the name of Jesus.
“As you step into this new phase of your assignment, may you be clothed with humility. I have never begged, yet I have never lacked, I have never borrowed yet I have never lack.”
This is an evangelic ministry that ensures the Gospel of Jesus Christ is preached throughout the world.
The Isaac Oyedepo Evangelistic Ministries (TIOEM) is not being commissioned as a church ministry but an evangelistic ministry with a clear vision and mission for this generation.
Pastor Isaac was also blessed by other notable men of God in attendance including; Pastor (Dr) Paul Eneche, Pastor David Abioye and a virtual blessing from Pastor E. A. Adeboye. Our prayers for him is that the best that God has him shall be revealed.
