He is an Apostolic prayer warrior, a passionate worshipper, a counselor and mentor, a seasoned teacher of the Word, a deliverance minister and missionary, and a writer. He is an ordained Pastor and a revivalist in the body of Christ. He is fondly called by many, “Man of Fire.” Although born and raised in a devout Christian family, he had a personal encounter with Jesus and got saved at the age of 13 while he was in Junior High School. He started preaching the Gospel of Jesus ever since.
By his senior year in high school, Sam became the president and student pastor of his entire school fellowship leading over 200 members and 30 ministers. After graduating high school, he mentored and trained many student ministers who are doing many great exploits for the Lord in various nations of the world, particularly, in Africa.
Sam was a translator who interpreted for many preachers from English to Yoruba (his native language) and vice versa for many preachers in different churches, open-air crusade grounds, and prayer mountains. In Nigeria, he was also a high school teacher for a few years where he taught Math, Physics, and Chemistry. Even as a school teacher, he preached the Gospel to all his students and many were saved and transformed.
As a college student in Nigeria, he was one of those who set his campus on fire for Jesus by raising a group of prayer warriors and passionate believers who went about preaching the Gospel to villages known for witchcraft. With a background in Electrical Engineering from Nigeria, Sam moved to the United States to work as a youth pastor and administrator for a Pentecostal church where he served for 6 years.
