Reverend Joseph A. Adejare was born in Lagos, Nigeria, in 1945, the third of twelve children. He was raised in a polygamous environment. He was a disfavored child of both his father and mother. After his fatheras support through the sixth grade, which was free in that part of the country then, he struggled to attain secondary and university education, self-supported. After university, he worked in sundry corporations where he handled various sensitive military projects successfully. From his childhood, the word of God has always been the highest authority to him and as such he was most of the time reliant on God, and frankly, God never failed him. When Joseph allowed God, God always stepped into the situations and Joseph won. The opposite is true when Joseph relied on himself. Joseph A. Adejare is the assistant pastor of Joyful Nations Ministries in Ontario, California.
