The day was indeed bright and beautiful and the sun was glowing gracefully as guest from all walks of life gathered in the city of Malmø to celebrate the 50th Birthday Anniversary of a great man of God Pastor Joshua Oladokun.
According to Jim Rohn ‘’ whoever renders service to many puts himself in line for greatness- great wealth, great return, great satisfaction, great reputation, and great joy’’ and this has come true in Pastor Joshua’s life. His well-organized 2- day extravaganza was filled with glamour, grandeur and was very entertaining. It was colorful and regal.
Who is Pastor Joshua Oladokun? When Lucius Annaeus Seneca wrote ‘’ it is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness’’ he had Pastor Joshua Oladokun in mind.
Pastor Joshua Oladokun is a husband, father, pastor, philanthropist, an entrepreneur and investor with successful companies in his portfolio. He was born on the 2nd of April in 1963 to Pa Isaac and Abigael Oladokun in Odoka compound, Ifelodun local government area, Iree, Osun state. Nigeria.
He attended Baptist Day School from 1970 to 1976 and as he could not further his education, he decided to learn fashion designing and subsequently moved to Benin where he served as a fashion designing apprentice before he started his own fashion designing outlet in Benin City. He also alongside his fashion designing business ran a car business with his Uncle.
Pastor Joshua Oladokun is a remarkable, hard-working trail blazer, someone whose life, ministry and business philosophy is based on touching and impacting lives. Despite coming from a poor background he was determined to change the course of his life and thanks to the grace of God, the value of humility, hard work and sacrifice ingrained in him at an early age he has come a long way.
His business partners see him as a man who dreams big but is not afraid to start small, a man who never takes a ‘’No’’ for an answer and dares to thread where others dread. His success in business has endeared him to many and his known for his hard work, determination and focus in life and business.
His colleagues in ministry described him as a man who keeps his word and works his talk. His go-getting spirit in the face of opposition which may have come across as stubbornness has been a contributing factor to his success in life and ministry.
His friends described him as a wonderful and dependable friend, confident, assertive and a courageous man.
His Pastor, Pastor Ade Olushola spoke of him as a remarkable, God fearing man.
His wife Pastor Ingrida Oladokun described him as her soul mate, her love, her friend and a perfect gift from God. Truly coming in contact with them you can right away see the strong bond between them which is electrifying, expressing the kind of bond found between two people honestly in love
They are blessed with 4 children (2 boys and 2 girls). And to his children Pastor Joshua is their loving doting dad.
Pastor Joshua is the pioneering pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Jubilee Centre in Malmø and serves there as the Parish Pastor. Afroscandic wish him well in his future endeavors. Happy viewing!
