As far as we are concerned, Ope Banwo is a good public analyst and an accomplished barrister, but beneath is a man who cherishes working for God. It would be recalled that the name Ope Banwo strolled into public consciousness some years back when he was the managing director of Dove MediaGroup which is owned by Redeemed Christian Church of God. But due to some factors, the brainy lawyer had to relinquish his lofty position at Dove and headed straight to the United States of America where he established and ran his own church, House on the Rock at Omaha, Nebraska, United States of America.
But in recent times, he’s been off the pastoral job due to his highly demanding new passion as he’s currently spreading the gospel of the internet business. However, the good news is that Ope is back actively in the vineyard of God.
Recently, when he was quizzed on his pastoral career by your soar-away columnist, here is what he said: “I am an associate pastor at BETHEL WONDERCITY now and have just been sent to oversee one of our struggling parishes in Abijo, Lekki, Lagos for a few months. I am very happy to serve the General Overseer of the church in whatever capacity God directs. So I am very happy right now in my role in the kingdom. Some are meant to be full time pastors and others are blessed to be trouble shooters and project catalysts for short spurts at a time and I think my own anointing and gifting is towards the latter set of people. I love setting stuff up and I love reviving struggling ventures.”
Lest we forget, let’s inform you that Dr. Banwo, a Ph-D holder in law is also the founder of American Internet Business School, an independent institution that has trained thousands of youth on how to be millionaires.
