Olu Sobanjo has always had a passion and grace for the kind of life that is exceptional.
Working along side her husband Pastor Ade Sobanjo, Olu serves as co-pastor of Overcomers Assembly. God has been using both of them to develop wonderful men and women in the Overcomers family since its inception in July of 2005. And right now with 4 locations in Canada and 1 in Kuje, Nigeria; the Church continues to work towards its mandate of 100 life group leaders and 1000 workplace missionaries.
As a co-pastor, Olu is part of her husband’s ministry around Canada and beyond. As a wife and mother of two boys, Olu is also a mentor and inspiration to women everywhere. She is passionate about helping women, youths, families labor against all odds to enjoy the abundant life that God has already given to us.
Her desire to meet the needs of women led her to found the ladies ministry at Overcomers Assembly to strengthen the lives of married and single ladies. Olu also started Vessels of Grace Conference (an annual ladies conference) since 2007. She loves to worship.
As the last child of the family growing up she learned much about life and business from her Mom & Dad (Pa & Ma Olowosoyo). Prior to coming to Canada, OluwaSeun was called Seun (SHAY-HUN) by many of her dear friends and family. She attended the famous Obafemi Awolowo University in Nigeria where she earned her BSc in Accounting while working on personal and church related business initiatives. She met Ade in the latter end of 1997 and everything changed from there till Ade and Olu eventually got married in 2004 after four and half years of long distance relationship.
She worked as a financial advisor at Investors Group (a leading Canadian financial planning institution) for about 5 years until she left her practice to devote herself to full-time ministry. She loves to share the life of Christ with people far and near. Over the years Olu has had many hats and she believes that each person was deliberately designed therefore she would work passionately with people to turn their gifts/skills into profit. This led her to start her Launch a dream series.
She is the author of Living from the Inside Out: experiencing unending joy in Christ and a few other books. She also helps other people publish their books at Gracepress.ca. She is currently a missionary in Nigeria with her family.
