Meet Our Guest: Pastor Korede Adams


Pastor Korede Ipindumi – Adams, popularly called ” Prince of the Pulpit ” among his contemporaries is the Lead Pastor of Masterpiece Assembly in the city of Lagos, Nigeria. He also travels extensively as a prophetic voice to nations of the world, preaching and teaching to bring life and light to God’s purpose and program in raising a Masterpiece of Christ generation.

Born into the family of Mr and Mrs IPINDUMI around the mid 70s, Pastor Korede Adams is the third born of four children. At the early age of eighth, he began to experience unusual stirrings in his heart towards knowing and experiencing more of God, which led to his salvation experience at the age of nine years and he received the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues before his tenth birthday.

By the age of twelve, Pastor Korede Adams was already preaching and it was obvious that the call of God was very strong upon his life as God was also confirming His Words with notable signs and wonders.

He joined Rhema Chapel International Churches under the leadership of Rev George Adegboye where he served in different capacities. He became the coordinator of Rhema Campus Fellowship at the Yaba college of Technology where he studied Accounting. While in the same institution of higher learning, he also started the first departmental fellowship in 1993. In pursuance of his ministry, Rev Korede Adams entered full-time ministry with Rhema Chapel International Churches in 1995 as the National coordinator of Youth and Campus ministries, Coordinator of the Young Ministers Teaching School and Special Assistant to Rev George Adegboye. In 1997, he joined Daystar Christian Centre as an associate pastor under Pastor Sam Adeyemi.

He was released in 1999 and pastored House Aglow Worship centre till January 2005 before relocating to South Africa where he did extensive itinerant ministry. From November 2006 he pastored Masterpiece Tabernacle in Boksburg, South Africa under the auspices of Bishop Anthony Willis who is the presiding Prelate of PURE Ministries International Fellowship in Oakland CA

He has since grown to be an erudite rhetorician of the Word of God. His passion is to see people become true Worshippers, Experiencing and Expressing Christ in every place.

Pastor Korede is happily married to Catherine Eguono Adams.
