Pastor David is the senior pastor of both Dominion Faith International Church in Nigeria and Balanced Life Christian Center in New York. He is a spiritual educator, missionary evangelist and preacher of the gospel of Christ.
He was called into ministry in 1986 at the age of 20 and got involved with church planting from the same year, planting churches in Badagry, Lagos State; Ibeshe, Ikorodu-Lagos; Umuahia, Abia State; Okene, Kogi State; Ihima, Kwara State; Ipaja, Lagos State; and New York, United States.
He graduated from LIFE Theological Seminary, Lagos in 1989; an alumnus of Word of Faith Bible Institute, Lagos; Morris Cerrulo School of Ministry, San Diego, California, U.S.A and Jack Hayford School of Pastoral Nurture, Los Angeles, California.
For years, he has kick-started and continued with various projects that help to meet people’s needs – physical, spiritual and economical.
He’s been running leadership development and empowerment seminars and workshops in different nations of the world for years since he started ministry. These sessions aim to improve the spiritual walk of those holding leadership positions in small, medium and large churches and boost their spiritual insights, knowledge and strategies for leading the flock.
The skill acquisition training and development programmes he organises aim at equipping sons and daughters of God with needed vocational skills to improve their personal economies.
He has been to over twelve African nations, including Togo, Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Benin Republic, to mention a few; holding a combination of these leadership seminars and skill training classes – reaching and teaching the under-privileged major keys to better economic and spiritual lives.
David Olatona holds different leadership positions in the body of Christ and also successfully ran a Bible School for three years. He was a speaker at the Peace December Coalition anniversary in 2015.
For the past 12 years, David Olatona has also been involved in medical missions – seeking to improve the medical conditions of people with little or no access to proper medical attention and check-ups.
In addition to these, he also has dedicated the last couple of years towards organising food pantries and drives Ipaja, Lagos and in Mount Vernon, New York; during the COVID-19 global pandemic, he also organised palliative care for hundreds of families whose livelihood and means of living have been affected in Nigeria.
His passion is to contribute his quota in building a healthy body of prevailing Christians across the globe! He is happily married to Pastor Dele Olatona and they are blessed with a son.
Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness. When He saw the crowds, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest.”
