Born in Britain but bred in Nigeria, Dr Oloyede is a medical doctor by profession but serves as a full-time missionary and minister in England and Europe. He was radically converted from Islam to Christianity within the wake of the revival that hit Nigerian Universities in the 1980s.
In 1991 while on a 3 month holiday in London, he responded to the call to Europe as a missionary and minister. He was subsequently ordained into Pastoral Ministry in 1993 at Glory Bible Church where he served in full-time ministry for 15years.
His versatile abilities enabled him to serve in various capacities including Church Administrator, Associate Pastor, Senior Associate Pastor, Principal of the College of Ministry and Executive Director for Community Projects Development..
Through his passion for Community transformation he initiated the Newham Health Day, Caring Hearts (an outreach to the elderly), the Government sponsored Workwise scheme, the schools/ youth outreach, Xpect and the Glory House Football Academy.
In 2008, Jonathan and Abbiih Oloyede together as Team leaders started an independent church plant called City Chapel. Its ethos is Uniting peoples from all races and spheres into the Great Commission for Social Transformation.
