It it a general belief that Nigeria and indeed the world would have become much more better if all the clergy could emulate the life of tireless giving by Her Eminence, Rev. Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi, the Founder and General Overseer of the Love of Christ Generation (C&S) Church. The church headquarters is located in Clapham, London and has branches all over Nigeria and other parts of the world.

Rev. Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi
is the convener and sponsor of the annual ‘Celebrate The Comforter’ event which is being used to glorify God and celebrate unity and preach peace in the body of Christ; particularly the Celestial Church of Christ (CCC) and Cherubim and Seraphim Church (C&S). The 2019 edition of the evangelical event held in Lagos attracted a large number of participants from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, other European countries as well as people from the 36 states of the federation. Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi is also a fire brand prayer warrior, a spiritual virtue that accounts for her sobriquet of ‘Iya Adura’.
Iya Adura has indeed proven her mettle as a prophetess whom God has been using over the years to perform miracles and deliver all other forms of spiritual blessings not only to her congregants, but people of the world in general. She is also a leading light and icon of the white garment churches across the globe. God has been using this woman of prayers to send people out of churches that have gone fetish and to completely cleanse dirty altars. She has brought true love, unity, togetherness and empathy to the body of Christ. God has also been using Rev. Mother Ajayi to engender revival in the Christendom. She has to a large extent been able to correct the notion of spiritism and fetish practices that were formerly associated with the white garment churches in Nigeria.
Aside the ecumenical feats of Her Eminence, Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi across the continents of the world, she has also been of immense blessing to humanity through her global philanthropic endeavours. She has touched many lives within and outside of the African continent through her Esther Ajayi Foundation. The passion of Her Eminence to give and positively impact lives is simply unbelievably unmatched. She is irrevocably committed to giving back to her society without blinking an eyelid. Philanthropy has become a passion and way of life for Rev Mother Ajayi.
It is the firm belief of Iya Adura Worldwide that there could be no love for the motherland without genuine love towards humanity. She has over the years been making conscious efforts to reach out to the poor, downtrodden, sick, heartbroken, orphans, widows and those in need of general rehabilitation. She has joyfully taken it upon herself to take up the responsibility of alleviation of misery and poverty in Nigeria and the African continent.
The Esther Ajayi Foundation has so far restored many sick persons to good health, taken many children from streets and enrolled them in schools and it has also rehabilitated many returnees from Libya and other parts of North Africa.
The Esther Ajayi Foundation has thus far been saddled with the responsibility of assisting some Internally Displaced Persons as a result of terror activities of Boko Haram in the North Eastern part of Nigeria. Impacts of philanthropic gesture of the renowned prophetess have also been greatly felt in African nations like Liberia, Sierra Leone and Benin Republic. She and her delegation visited Liberia few years ago for a three day visit and they were received by the Vice President of the country, Her Excellency Jewel Johnson. The Foundation has also been providing support for the homeless and poverty stricken persons in the African continent. The Foundation has likewise concerned itself with the rehabilitation of offenders, drug addicts and sexually abused ladies across the African continent.
The Esther Ajayi Foundation not long ago picked up the medical bills of a popular Nigerian comedian, Babatunde Omidina, popularly known as Baba Suwe before he eventually gave up the ghost. Also, Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi not long ago adopted the then 4 year old Ayomide Adeoye, the orange seller whose video went viral on social media. The 7 year old boy was then enrolled in Avi-Cenna International school, G.R.A, Ikeja, Lagos and he has since been having the best of time in terms of his welfare, academically and health wise . The renowned prophetess has also been giving financial lifelines to countless number of people in Nigeria and the African continent. One of such beneficiaries of her kind gestures was a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God whom she gifted #5 million during a church programme organized by Shepard Israel Ogundipe of Genesis Parish, Celestial Church of Christ.
Rev Mother Ajayi is likewise a Matron and financial supporter of not less than 60 churches in Nigeria and other countries of the world. Her Eminence is also the Grand /Life Matron of many charity organizations and Non- Governmental Organization across the countries of the Africa continent. She is undoubtedly an extraordinary being who possesses an extraordinary heart and gift of giving. The doyen of Cherubim and Seraphim church has thus far set enviable records through philanthropy for posterity to forever remain kind to her.
Despite all the astonishing success stories and landmark achievements of Iya Adura, she still remains extremely humble and totally submissive to her husband, Rev. (Dr.) Ademuyiwa Ajayi. She has never allowed success in the ministry to erode her God’s given gift of humility. She would always kneel down to greet her husband even in the public and would never allowed someone else to handle the cooking of her husband whenever she is around. Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi is without doubt a product of grace whose genuine fear of God is constantly evident.
God’s special grace has become evident in the life of the Awori born Iya Adura since she was barely 20 years of age. This was the age she
took up the responsibility of taking care of her parents. It was also the same grace that made it possible for her to build her very first house, a storey building before she turned 25 years of age.
The clergy mission and calling of
Rev. Mother Ajayi unconsciously began at the age of 14 when she prayed for her sick mother and the woman became healed almost instantly. The second miracle that God performed through Her Eminence even as a little girl was when she prayed for a woman whose pregnancy was long overdue and she delivered safely almost immediately after the payer session. The woman therefore named the baby Oluwasanmi to show her appreciation to God Almighty.
Without doubt, God has continually manifest His faithfulness in the ministry of Rev. Esther Ajayi since it began. Unmerited favour from God has also been a recurring occurrence in her ministry. God indeed proved Himself almightiness by arresting the husband of Her Eminence who before the encounter used to mock her that she was only wasting time on church matters instead of facing business when she started the Faith Bible College. To the glory of God, Rev. (Dr.) Ademuyiwa Ajayi is today a lecturer in the same Faith Bible College that he once condemned.
Instructively, the decision of Mother Esther Abimbola to leave her flourishing business for a full time ministry was by the leafing of God. Even after a prophetess told her in Abuja that she must proclaim the gospel of God, she still refused to heed the instruction. However, there was no more hiding place for her again at a point when she went for prayer in a mountain at Iragbiji, Osun State. This was where she clearly got the confirmation of same divine instruction from God. The instruction was for her to ring a bell from her house to the streets if she does not want anything bad to happen to any of her children. She thereafter reasoned that God actually wanted her to summon enough courage and proclaim His gospel to the world and prove that she was not in any way ashamed of the gospel.
In all these, God has in return been using people of means across the world to help and bless the ministry of Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi. Divine provision of £5.2 million with which she built a church in London is clearly an evidence of God’s faithfulness in her ministry.
To the glory of God thus far, Her Eminence, Rev. Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi has totally submitted herself to a selfless service of God and that of humanity. She has consciously devoted her time and resources to the propagation of the gospel as well as impacting the lives of the needy and economically disadvantaged in Nigeria and across the African continent.
