Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has been General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) since 1981. Within these thirty-five years, he has expanded the reach of the church, instituted various innovative programmes and broadened its membership base. His visionary leadership has steered the ship of the church through various courses without any major rupture. This has earned him respect from various quarters across the globe and made him a model for many young people. This chapter identifies some areas of influence where the mark of E.A Adeboye has remained indelible both within the local context of the Nigerian society and the wider global community. This also underscores the fact that the RCCG is no longer a local brand’ but a transnational church with parishes in over one hundred and eighty nations of the world.
