This journey started in 1990 when God spoke to Kayode Ijisesan.
And now we are here because of the obedience of one man.
KingsWord Ministries International was conceived in August 1990 when God spoke to Kayode Ijisesan (fondly known as Dr. Kay) the words “…raise me a supernatural army” in an unusual divine encounter. He was a college student in a Pharmacy School at this time. The first seed of this great vision was planted in April 1993 with the inception of a college ministry originally known as Victory Christian Fellowship now KingsWord Campus Church, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria.
On November 21, 1997, KingsWord Ministries International (KMI) was officially commissioned. The Church arm of the ministry known as KingsWord International Church (KIC) was later inaugurated on the December 31, 1997 in the city of Lagos, Nigeria. Presently, there are over 12 vibrant Churches in Lagos metropolis alone.
Dr. Kay was a college student in a Pharmacy School at the time God called him. The first seed of this great vision was planted in April 1993 with the inception of a college ministry in Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria, today known as KingsWord.
