The global Christian community mourns the loss of Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, a Senior Pastor of The Fountain of Life Church (TFOLC), who peacefully passed away at the age of 67 on August 7th, 2023, in the United States. 

The news was shared with deep sorrow through an official statement posted on the church’s  social media accounts on Tuesday evening.

In the heartfelt announcement, The Fountain of Life Church Family conveyed, “The Fountain of Life Church Family, in total submission to the will of God Almighty, announces the passing unto greater glory of our Father, our Teacher, a great servant of the Most High God, Pastor Daniel Taiwo Odukoya, Founding Pastor of The Fountain of Life Church, who passed unto glory on the 7th of August 2023 in the USA.”

Known for his impactful sermons, charismatic leadership, and unwavering dedication to spreading the teachings of Christianity, Pastor Odukoya leaves behind a legacy that has touched countless lives over the years.

This tragic event occurs less than two years after the passing of his wife, Nomthi Odukoya, who was 47 years old at the time of her demise on November 9, 2021.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
