About Us

The National Day of Prayer and Worship was a call to Unity, Prayer and Transformation across the British Isles. The Tour took Dr J Oloyede and Team across many villages, towns and cities. Wembley stadium witnessed the largest unity Prayer event in a generation. Thousands of people were commissioned to be change agents.

Meet the Team

Dr. Jonathan Oloyede
Founder & CEO

Born in Britain but bred in Nigeria, Dr. Oloyede is a medical doctor by profession but serves as a full-time apostolic missionary to the United Kingdom and Europe. In 1991 while on a three-month holiday in London, he responded to the call to Europe. He was subsequently ordained into Pastoral Ministry in 1993 and has served full-time for 28 years.

Jonathan’s overriding passion is to raise a global network of One Million Disciples of Christ across the continents and nations and to see the Vision of Jesus fulfilled through the Great Commission and Great Commandments to Love God and all people. Dr. Jonathan is the leader of City Chapel and the Convener of the National Day of Prayer UK which saw hundreds of thousands pray across multiple locations and stadiums across our family of nations.

Jonathan is blissfully married to Abbiih and lives in Kent with his two children.
