Pastor Emmanuel Olaleye is the senior pastor at Open Door Christian Center. He was ordained as a pastor in 1991 at Abraham’s Evangelistic Ministry in Lagos, Nigeria after serving as a civil servant for over ten years. His calling to the ministry is by divine arrangement as pastoral work was the last thing he ever wanted to do. Pastor Olaleye operates in the ministry with God’s gift of teaching and preaching, holding the firm belief that the preaching of the gospel should not be compromised or watered down at the altar to appease some interests. This is why the vision of Open Door Christian Center is to teach and preach the undiluted and uncompromising word of God. Pastor Emmanuel is happily married to Grace Olaleye who he describes as tremendously supportive in the ministry. They are both blessed with three children and a grandson.
