Revd. Dr Paul Jinadu
Revd. Jinadu was born a Muslim in Lagos, Nigeria. He became a Christian after Jesus appeared to him and abandoned his pursuit of a medical education in the United Kingdom.
He went to The Bible College of Wales, Swansea, in 1962, and later also studied theology at The London Bible College, where he graduated in 1972.
He married Kate who he met in Bible College, and both returned to Nigeria as Missionaries in 1966. They first worked with The Apostolic Church in Lagos, and then extensively with the Four Square Gospel Church as pastors and church planters.
They returned to the UK in the early 80’s with Paul going all over the country as a travelling evangelist and conference speaker. Kate meanwhile was involved in leading people to Christ through the Christian Coffee Club in York.
In 1985, at the invitation of many of his disciples, Paul started the New Covenant Church in Nigeria and a year later in the UK.
He now oversees over 650 branches of the church in 23 nations of the world.
Paul was the second President of the African and Caribbean Evangelical Alliance in the UK. He is an Apostle, spiritual father and mentor to many pastors across the globe, a sought-after speaker and author of “I have seen the Lord” among many other books. He conducts Leadership Seminars and Training all over the world.
Rev Mrs Kate Jinadu loves Jesus dearly and preaches with a passion to see people fall in love with Him. She is a spiritual mother and mentor to many women and pastors, the International President of Covenant Women, and founder of Liberty, a charity registered under the New Covenant Church empowering people in the developing world, particularly in Nigeria. She is the author of “Foundations for Christian Marriage,” among many other books.
Their sons Philip and Simon are ministers and are married with children.
