Who We Are


RCCG Living Waters Iqaluit - Pastor Adeboye

A brief history or general information of Living Water Parish, Iqaluit (what you believe people should know).

RCCG Living Water is a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), one of the largest and fastest growing Pentecostal Churches in the world. RCCG started in 1952 with just 12 members but has grown into a mega church with parishes spread across the five continents of the world under the present leadership of Pastor E.A. Adeboye and his wife, Pastor (Mrs) Folu Adeboye.

In 2009 when Pastor Rotimi & Adebola Lawal were seeking the face of God regarding their relocation to Canada and the Lord gave them a vision of a town under the administration of the Queen of England, dominated by local whites, their appearance was like the Aboriginals and their women were welcoming us and saying, “thank you for bringing water”. This vision was hard to interpret as we had no knowledge of Aboriginals and land ownership in Canada.

In 2013 while leading the School of Disciples in Edmonton, we initiated a monthly evangelism outreach as practical into the discipleship training and a First Nation reserve in Hobbema, Maskwacis about 70km drive from Edmonton was chosen as the field for the outreach. It was in this reserve that the vision was re-ignited in our hearts and we started to seek the face of God for direction.

In January 2017, Sister Bola was interviewed for a position with one of the employers in Iqaluit and selected for the job. She moved into Iqaluit on 7th of March 6th, 2017. The vison of 2009 was then clearer as the town topography and people that were seen in the vision were accurate and precise.

Pastor Rotimi joined Sister Bola in July 2017 and the work of intercession, spiritual mapping and registration of the parish with the territorial government commenced. The parish was registered in September 2017. The inaugural service was conducted on 13th January 2018.

Please join us as Ambassadors of Christ to dissipate the Light and Love of Christ to redeeming the Land, raising Leaders, especially Inuit Leaders and restoring inheritances.
