FOUNDER – PASTOR OLUBI JOHNSON, (BSc. MSc. Ph.D)
Pastor Olubi Johnson is the President of Christ Life Ministries and Founder/Setman of Scripture Pasture Christian Centre Ibadan, Nigeria. He is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Lifeforte International High and Junior Schools, Biscordint Travels, and Lifeforte Holdings and Investments. He is also the Nigeria Master Affiliate of the Linux Professional Institute (LPI).
Pastor Olubi Johnson is the Chairman Board of Trustees Elyon Koinonia Estate Developers Limited, Living Mercy Voice Foundation, a charity organization established by Scripture Pasture Christian Centre and Lifeforte Scholarship Foundation.
He attended the first secondary school in Nigeria, the prestigious CMS Grammar School, Lagos, graduating in 1974 with Grade One Distinction in the WASSCE. Subsequently, he was admitted to Nigeria’s premier institution of higher learning, the University of Ibadan, graduating in 1978 with a B.Sc. First Class Honours in Physics.
After serving his NYSC in Ikom, in Cross River State, he proceeded to the prestigious Imperial College, London in 1979 where he studied for and completed the course requirement for a postgraduate degree in Communication Engineering.
It was while there that he received a divine call to return to Nigeria to teach the undiluted Word of God for the ‘…perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ… (Eph.4:12)’.
Upon his return to Nigeria, he served as an assistant to a Christian minister and later taught in a secondary school in Oyo State from 1982-1984.
He returned to his alma-mater, the University of Ibadan in 1984 to obtain a Masters degree in Solid-State Physics and then became an Assistant Lecturer in the Physics Department. During that period of time, he co-founded the church Scripture Pasture Christian Centre and began a PhD. program. However, after about six years, he had to set aside his studies and teaching appointment in Ul in order to focus upon the burgeoning responsibilities of full time ministry, though he never stopped private research into cutting-edge Computational Theoretical & Applied Physics, Artificial Intelligence & Computer Control Systems.
As the Set man and Senior Pastor of the church Scripture Pasture Christian Centre, Ibadan, Nigeria, and President of Christ Life Ministries, Pastor Olubi has and continues to minister extensively in churches, seminars, and conventions worldwide.
An anointed teacher of the Word of God with over 35 years of unblemished ministry with an Apostolic and Prophetic grace, his love for the challenge of research in cutting-edge Computational Theoretical Physics led him, after many years of fruitful ministry, to return to his passion for academic research and attainment, and was recently awarded a PhD. in Physics from the University of Ibadan for his dissertation entitled: “Atomistic Simulation and Calculation of Optoelectronic Properties and Efficiency of Graphene-Anatase Based Magnesium Perovskite Solar Cell.”
Pastor Johnson is also the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Lifeforte International High and Junior Schools, established in November 1990 with Pastor (Dr.) Mrs Sarah Olubi Johnson, his beloved wife, helpmeet and visioner of the divine success that is the Lifeforte International Schools project. Pastor Sarah is a woman of divine graces who deeply loves God, is blessed with prophetic graces and has a passion for excellence, and the education and future of Nigeria.
