Education and Early Life
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has a special relationship with the Benson Idahosa University. It is the place where he found his true passion and his career began to take shape. He realized his true purpose by working under the legendary late Archbishop Benson Idahosa, who was also the founder of the university at his Church of God Mission International (CGMI). This was the place where Pastor Chris learned what would make him the person he is today.
He speaks very fondly about the late Archbishop. Thinking about his early memories, he states, “Archbishop Benson Idahosa was one of the most remarkable and inspiring personalities of the 20th Century. It is a fact of life that those who did not have the privilege to get to meet him, are blessed to meet him through many of us. The impact of the Archbishop on me as an individual is unquantifiable.” Through his work and university, Pastor Chris was inspired to preach and spread the Word of God and impact people in a similar way.
