In 1989 while in Nigeria, they both received their calls to ministry at different times. After which, they both on different occasions have received numerous confirmations attesting to the validity of their calls to ministry. For years they sought God for wisdom and direction, praying in the spirit with fervency. God honored that prayer when in March of 1998 Olumide was prompted by the Holy Spirit to be a part of a group that went to the Philippines (located in Southeast Asia) on a short term missions trip. On that trip God confirmed his mandate with the message on Identity. Later on that year, Vision For Life Ministries was born.
In December 1998, Kayode sensing the timing of God spoke with prophetic insight: “Let us write a book!” This message led to their first book, Uncovering the Hidden Stranger Within: Answering the Question of Identity. As a result of this book, many lives have been positively impacted; the testimonies are still coming in.
Kayode and Olumide have a strong passion to fulfill their God-given vision to Raise Men and Women of foresight who will positively impact generations (present and unborn). This mandate has become their moral imperative and pursuit.
