Jimmy Odukoya, a Nollywood actor and musician, has been named the successor to his father, as Senior Pastor of Fountain of Life Church.

He is taking over after the death of Pastor Taiwo Odukoya on August 7, in the United States of America, at the age of 67.

He was buried on September 9, 2023.

Rotimi Okpaise, a member of the Board of Trustees (BOT), announced this on Sunday, during the church service.

“Pastor Jimmy is now our Senior Pastor, and he is the chairman of the Board of Trustees,” he told the congregation.

He said the installation service of the new senior pastor, a graduate of Oral Roberts University, United States, will take place on September 30.

Okpaise disclosed that the late Pastor Odukoya confided in the BoT members about the succession plan before he passed away.

Pastor Jimmy Odukoya was said to have held a meeting with Bishop Mike Okonkwo of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM).

The former senior pastor had lost his second wife, Nomti, less than two years ago.

She died in South Africa, on November 9, 2021, after succumbing to cancer, which she battled for two years of the 11 years of marriage, leaving behind twins.

Late Odukoya, after 21 years of marriage, lost his first wife, Pastor Bimbo, who died in a Sosoliso plane crash in Port Harcourt, the Rivers capital, in 2005.
