‘An Icon Who Touched Countless Lives’ – Pastor Paul Adefarasin Mourns Taiwo Odukoya




Senior pastor of House on the Rock Church Paul Adefarasin has joined in mourning the late founding pastor of The Fountain of Life Church Taiwo Odukoya.

The clergyman died on Monday at the age of 67 in the United States.

Adefarasin in a long post on Instagram described Odukoya as an “authentic icon”

The clergyman further stated  that Odukoya touched countless lives and left an indelible imprint on the body of Christ.

He said, “We give thanks for the remarkable life of Pastor Taiwo, an authentic icon who touched countless lives. Through his dedication and spiritual leadership, he won numerous souls, built families, and restored homes. His influence reached far and wide, leaving an indelible imprint on the body of Christ.

“Although the loss is profound, we find solace in the knowledge that Pastor Taiwo fulfilled his calling and has now found rest in the arms of our Father The Creator. We will forever cherish the opportunity to have lived in the midst of his life and times.”

Adefarasin also had words for Odukoya’s children –Jimmy, Tolu, Tobi, Jomiloju, and Timilehin.

He said, “We extend our heartfelt condolences. May you find comfort and strength in this difficult time, knowing that his legacy will continue to inspire and gird us all.”

Adefarasin prayed that Odukoya’s journey may inspire “antifragility” within people “knowing that challenges for what they are may come, but we have the Greater God within and we will overcome.”

“Pastor T has completed his race and passed the baton, now it is time for him to rest, and we will miss him dearly on this earthly side! Our dear Pastor Taiwo, your memory will forever be cherished. Rest in eternal peace,” he added.
