The death has occurred of Pastor Oluwadamilare Temitope, one of the biological sons of the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye.

Pastor Dare Adeboye popularly called Pastor Dee died in his sleep on Wednesday May 4, 2021 at Eket where he Pastored a Youth branch of The Redeemed Christian Church of God. He died aged 42 years. He was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35 before his death. He was survived by three daughters.

His death which came as a rude shock to the whole world has been attracting messages of condolence from well-meaning persons including presidents, governors, and personalities sympathising with the 79-year-old General Overseer and his wife over the death of their son.

Meanwhile, a special burial arrangement announced by the family began on Sunday May 9, 2021 at the City of David Youth Church in Eket, Akwa Ibom where the deceased pastored. It was followed by a night of Thanksgiving songs and tributes held on Monday, May 10, between 4 pm and 6 pm, at RCCG House of Favour, Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. It was rounded off with a Farewell service on Tuesday, May 11, at the Youth Centre, also at RCCG Redemption Camp.

There was a harvest of tributes on Sunday as the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) City of David Parish in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, at a service of songs held in honour of the late Pastor Oluwadamilare Adeboye.

The Church was filled as members from various parishes in the state came to pay their last respects.

Clergymen, including the resident pastor of the Living Faith Church (a.k.a Winners Chapel), Eket, Pastor Afolabi; General Overseer of Glory World Church, Eket, Pastor Samuel Effiong; Zonal Pastor of RCCG Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Pastor Timothy Mulero and others paid tribute to the late pastor.

Youths of the Province 5 said in their tribute: “We are missing you dearly. God enabled you to pioneer the work of the youth province from nothing to a position that is being admired by all.

”Your love for hard work and excellence made every one of us sit up and work with you. You taught us that only failures make excuses. With that, we got immunised against failure.”

Resident Pastor of City of David, Vincent Okolosi, said the death of Pastor Adeboye left a big vacuum not just in the parish but the entire RCCG and Christendom.

“He was a strong pillar to the Church and the youths in particular. He lived a life of sacrifice and generosity. He used his resources for the work of God,” affirmed Pastor Okolosi.

The music director of the City of David Parish, Iheonye Emmanuel, said he worked closely with late Pastor Adeboye.

“He was generous and completely sold out to the service of God. He embraced everyone and was accessible despite his tight schedule.

“I can’t count the number of youths he paid school fees for or the number of people he gave capital to start their businesses,” Emmanuel said.

It was a cascade of tears, whimpering sobs and free flow of emotions on Tuesday afternoon as the remains of Pastor Dare Adeboye was laid to rest.

The cleric was buried after a Farewell Service at the Youth Centre, Redemption Camp, along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. In attendance at the farewell service were his wife, Temiloluwa; his three daughters; his brother, Leke Adeboye, other siblings; the Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide aka Winners’ Chapel, David Oyedepo; his wife, Faith; as well as his son, Pastor David Oyedepo Jr.

Dare was later buried in the presence of friends, family and church members.

The family, in a statement by the deceased’s brother and Personal Assistant to the General Overseer, Pastor Leke Adeboye said in a statement which read partly: “With our hearts full of gratitude, we appreciate you, for standing by our family, in this period of trial. We are consoled, no doubt, by the fact that our beloved son has returned home, to rest in the bosom to his maker and father.

“Our confident assurance is rooted in the life of selflessness and sacrifice our son lived for Jesus Christ, our Saviour. Thank you so much for your prayers and words of encouragement. Our prayer is that we will all make it to that glorious home, in Jesus mighty name.”

Otherwise known as Pastor D, the deceased who was a carbon copy of his father while alive served as the RCCG House of Praise Birmingham Senior Pastor, the RCCG Kaduna 1 Provincial Youth Pastor & RCCG Region 8 Youth Pastor, the North Central Youth Evangelist covering all the YOUTHS, RCF, RCCF, & PSF in the states of Niger, Benue, Kwara, Kogi, Nasarawa, Plateau and FCT, and the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35, Eket, Akwa Ibom State before his death.
