We are delighted to welcome Yinka Oyekan to Refuel21.
Yinka is senior Pastor at @The Gate Church in Reading, England, and President of the UK Baptist Union and also spearheaded The Turning, the evangelistic street mission which began in 2016 and has now taken place in dozens of UK towns and cities, as well as further afield.
Yinka will be staying with us all week and has such a heart for Scotland and believes for revival in the nation.
Yinka was born in Edinburgh of dual heritage. His Mum is Scottish, and his Dad was Nigerian. He is married to Fiona and they have three sons. He was in Edinburgh studying accountancy when he was saved in 1984 through the ministry of Wester Hailes Baptist Church.
He is particularly excited by the third declaration of principle. It makes clear that “It is the duty of every disciple to bear witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to take part in the evangelisation of the world.”
Yinka’s main passion throughout has been in Church Planting as the building of a strong community of disciples is the ultimate goal of evangelisation.
Yinka has written several books/training manuals some of which have been translated into French, German and Portuguese.
