Popular Nollywood actor, Jimmy Odukoya, has succeeded his father, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya as the General Overseer of The Fountain Life Church and his Sister as Deputy Pastor.
The announcement was made during the church service on Sunday when a pastor, Rotimi Okpaise said that the actor’s late father, Taiwo Odukoya confided in the board of trustees (BoT) members about the succession plan before his demise.
Recall that the Odukoya family has a deep history within the church, and Jimmy’s new role marks a generational shift in leadership.
The family has faced some public losses over the years.
Back in 2005, the Odukoya family suffered a tremendous loss when Abimbola Rosemary “Bimbo” Odukoya, Jimmy’s mother and a beloved pastor and televangelist, lost her life tragically in the Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145 crash.

This devastating incident shook not only the Odukoya family, but also the entire congregation of the Fountain of Life Church.
Jimmy Odukoya has demonstrated his dedication to his faith and family over the years, just as his parents did.
Despite the personal loss and challenges they have endured, the Odukoya family remained very committed and dedicated to their religious community.
Aside from his pastoral responsibilities, Jimmy Odukoya is also a loving husband and devoted father.
He got married to a beautiful woman whose name is Kemi Odukoya, and together, they are raising their precious daughter.
In 2018, Kemi Odukoya expressed her admiration and gratitude for her husband’s part in the parenting process of their child.
She shared a heartwarming moment when Jimmy took on daddy duties, carrying their daughter on his back while she enjoyed a girls’ trip with a friend.
Kemi’s words had not only celebrated him as a doting father and loving husband but also all fathers who understand the profound importance of active parenting.
As Jimmy Odukoya assumes his role as the new Senior Pastor of the Fountain of Life Church, the congregation and the wider community eagerly anticipate the continuation of his family’s spiritual journey.
It’s a moment of transition, remembrance, and hope for the future as the Odukoya family continues to inspire and lead in faith.
