Hi sir…it’s been a year and I’m hurt I miss my father, mentor and most especially I miss talking to you and taking orders from you (you know it all) but I’m happy because I know where you at. I miss you so much and I miss how you will say “ tell them your pastor said this or that and if they have a problem with it, they should call me” lol. Thank you for all you have taught me, self discipline, prayers and love; I’m forever showcasing them and holding on to them. I love you Pastor B the extraordinary PERFECTIONIST. Excellent is who you are.

Esteemed Pastor Bola was my first Pastor when I joined Christ Embassy at Christ Embassy Ekpan, Nigeria. Although I only got to know him for a few months, as he had to relocate to Canada, he left an indelible impact in my life. I got to know him as a man who was always full of the Spirit. I was always inspired by the way he prayed, communicated the Gospel with the demonstration of the supernatural, and expressed his love for the brethren, such that when he was being sent forth to Canada, the whole congregation was full of tears. Rest on God's General. Heaven has gained a gallant soldier. I love you sir.

Esteemed Pastor Sir,

It has taken me a very long time to believe that you are out of the body and with the Lord. The first day I stepped foot in a Christ Embassy Church, you were the Pastor Teaching. I always remember you walking majestically on the stage and teaching the Word of God. Two weeks later when I cam back, you had been promoted to another church but the words and all I witness on the first day was still strong with me. I have never left Christ Embassy since then. Thank you Sir.

But ever since, listening to you has always blessed and strengthened my walk of faith. You are a great man of faith, full of love, full of the prophetic and great love for ministry. You called me on my last birthday and prayed for me...very touching. You have impacted my life and the life of many around the world. I love you and I look forward to meeting you in heaven. LOVE YOU FOREVER SIR! SEE YOU SOON!!

Pastor B.
I will leave to tell my kids, friends and family's your Hart of benevolent spirit. I don't know you by face to face I have not seen you or meet you in person. But in spirit you know me. You played a big part in my life to see that I'm free from the deep valley (prison in 9ja) I was in. The father in you has led me to be of help to people I don't know. For me not to see you before departing to meet the Lord Almighty. I say God knows why, everything you have done for us all, God almighty will give your family the higher grace of comfort in peace and spirit IJN.
Am still in shock.

Dear Daniel, in the short time we worked together in Ottawa, you became more than a colleague, you were a friend. You were kind and generous. I am very shocked and saddened by this news, but I know you are in a better place. RIP my friend, I pray that your family find strength and patience in this difficult time. You will be most dearly missed. My prayers are with you.

Thank you for all you did while on earth, your kind smile and all inclusive nature is remarkable. Thank you for honoring my family with your presences countless times, you are missed & were deeply appreciated. I wish I said this to you, and said it more often.

Pastor J,
Thank you for making his life sweet, you are loved & blessed.
Posted by Ayo Folahan on April 1, 2021
I still can't believe this is true...I've known you since Pastor Joseph, Pastor Elizabeth and yourself were the only Pastor in CE Canada; was in Mississauga with you. You're very humble and kind; you would fly in from Ottawa every Wednesday just for service with less than 10 in attendance sometimes and off to airport afterwards only to drive down again for Sunday church. I remember you packing all our music instruments for the venue in 2003 Yonge/Shepherd program before we arrived in church. You're one of a kind, so much to say...goodnight Pastor Bola, gonna miss you. My condolences Pastor J.

Dear Pastor Bola

Our beloved and Dear Pst Bola.served the Lord wholeheartedly. He was very prayerful and devoted to the Lord. His passion and zeal for soul winning was very contagious.

We worked together closely when I was senior pastor in Canada and I testify that he was always available, very zealous unto good works, participated effectively in ministry as Group Pastor and was just exceptional in so many ways. His love for our man of God, senior ministers and our ministry is praiseworthy

We are confident that he's with the Lord whom he loved with so much passion. The Spirit of God will comfort and strengthen Pst Jemine, Timothy & Izabele.

Rest on Dear Brother and general in God's army. We will see soon at the rapture of the church.

Pastor Siji Dara
Zonal Director, Christ Embassy Kenya

IThes 4:13-17
"But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord".

Its really painful that Bola and I were unable to connect since we left school in 1983. It’s now I realize that we were literally both living in Warri in the early 90s but the lack of technology made it impossible to know.

Isaiah 55:10 - 11
For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, …..
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Bola and I were classmates in Command Secondary School, Ibadan, a 100% boarding school at the time, between 1978 and 1983 and attended the Student Christian Movement (SCM) fellowship. My significant recollection of Bola was him leading praise and worship. He had a remarkable voice and energy. The choruses were simple and with absolutely no instrument, hand clapping and probably supported by one other person, the praise and worship time will go on and on.

Fast forward 38 years, I now read of Bola’s testimony. The Lord's name be praised for He is true to His word.

I pray that the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit will bring comfort to his dear wife and children.

Our Dear Brother-In-Law
The news of your demise shocked us because you were still in your prime. But we take solace in the fact that God knows best; and we believe that you are now in a better place resting in the peace of God. As we grieve because you have left us so soon, may God Almighty condole the Family that you have left behind. May God grant them the strength to bear this irreparable loss. Adieu until we meet at Jesus’ Feet. Amen.

My family and I are still in shock that it is not a dream but real. My boys, whom you knew very well, are not left out, feeling the impact of your transition to eternal glory. You are a man who never quits until the job is done. Pastor Bola will be forever remembered for your courage, love of people, and Christlike qualities. You are indeed a great exemplar of righteousness and an extraordinary missionary. My admiration of a man of faith, wisdom, and true humility.
Adieu Pastor B! Adieu, my man of God. Forever missed.

Dear Pastor Bola sir.

Oh! I miss you so dearly my Esteemed Pastor, Big Brother and friend. Sir, you were someone I tell everything because you are real and true. You are a Pastor who listened ,cared and had compassion on his brethren. You are a true Man of God, a soul winner, a solution provider, a light, a passionate giver. You are a Christian who practiced true christianity and an ardent follower of our Man of God , Pastor Chris and Christ. Sir, I met and knew you 6years ago in Canada but it seemed like forever.

Pastor sir, your smile and laughter were so sincere from within. Your love for friends turned family so genuine.

Pastor sir, it still like a dream to me that you've relocated truly from this earth to be with the father. It still a dream to me to know that I cannot just pick up my phone to call or chat you up and you will be there to say hello or hi my Sister.
It still a dream that I wouldn't see you during IPPC anymore.

My PBJE sir, thank you for the liquid love of Jesus you showered on me and all the words of Jesus you shared with me while you were here. I will miss you greatly. I love you sir.

Rest on Great Soldier of the Lord,
Rest on Son of Consolation,
Rest on Soul Winner,
Rest on Pastor, Friend & Brother,
Till we meet on the Rapture.

Dear Pastor B,
Pastor B my Father, my Mentor, and my Favorite Pastor. The only one that calls me Iya Omo ( Mother of Children) I will miss you! Thank you for preaching God's word with Boldness. Your spoken blessings has brought healing to many aching souls. You are the true meaning of Love. You love unconditionally.
Thank you for being a blessing to me, Deacon Marcus and our Children. You are in a better place now.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Pastor J. Timothy and Iszabel. May your heart and soul find peace and comfort.
Remembering you Pastor B in our minds and in our hearts
Posted by Rotimi Ajai on March 30, 2021
Pastor Bola, much as I know what the word of God says about what you have done in exercising your choice to be with the Lord which is far better, I think of you telling "O deacon live forever" to which I will respond, "you will never die". Well. you have taken an early flight not choosing to take the first flight. Hmm. Now the Holy Ghost will now have to comfort Pastor Jemine and Timothy and Iszabela with comfort no one else can provide. But then he's a master at that.
Never mind you have chosen a far better option to be with the Lord. While you sleep we await the first flight where we shall surly connect again.
You have lived well and we bear on the torch and baton you have handed over. I love you my brother

Rest well till we see you again.

Posted by Pastor Becky Allison on March 30, 2021
Pastor Bola Jegede always made me laugh. His greeting to me was always about anticipating a ministry of the tummy. Something about venison. Always full of smiles.

As shocked as I was to hear of his departure from the earth, I was comforted by the Lord who reminded me that it's 2, 5 or 9 years before we are caught up together to meet the Lord in the air. The Lord got me to thank Him, for meeting Pastor Bola and for the work he accomplished in the ministry and in the body of Christ. So I saw that we would be celebrating his life, achievement and legacy. Then I thanked the Lord for His comfort with Pastor Jemine and the kids. I am thankful to the Lord for a life well spent.

See you again soon PastorB, where we the saints will meet again to depart no more but to ever be with the Lord.

Pastor, I still find it hard to believe you have transitioned; It is very evident you made tremendous impact in many lives which cannot easily be quantified in words.
I will never forget the services we had with you in CE Ottawa last summer; your teachings in those services took my understanding of God’s word to a new Dimension.

Thank you for the life of Love, Impact and Service you exemplified. I love you dearly Sir. You will be greatly missed, but I take comfort in the scriptures and confident that we will meet again in Heaven at the Rapture

Thank you for impacting and empowering so many lives. Pastor Bola, I will never forget the series you had taught last summer at CE Ottawa with Pastor Joseph on exceptionalism.

To the general, God’s own child, an angle sent by God to this world to spread the word, show kindness, be a listener, extend a helping hand, show love to all and be a faithful ambassador of Lord. Is and was pastor Bola Jegede. Every thing he did in life was done to perfection. He did not fail God at all. With pride and confidence he served God. This he left behind for us all to continue in his footsteps as he now have a bigger and new assignment with God Almighty. Knowing and believing this, I accept with heavy and massive pain in my heart that he is resting with the MASTER who sent him and he is in PEACE! He was a great guy, husband, father, brother, friend and family to all. His kindness, love and care for all is unimaginable and this has been his identity from way back at school(Auchi polytechnic) I will miss you brother, keep smiling down on us, Rest In Peace.

All about Pastor B

Pastor Bolarinwa Daniel Jegede was born on the 1st of September 1967 at Ososo in Akoko-Edo Local Government Area of Edo State, Nigeria, to Late Major Michael Adeyemo Jegede and Late Madam Comfort Abiodun Jegede. Pastor Bolarinwa is the 6th. Child and first son of the Jegede family.
Pastor Bola had his elementary education at Command Children in the Yaba area of Lagos, Nigeria and proceeded to Command Secondary School in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. He later went to Auchi Polytechnic, in Auchi, Edo State, Nigeria, where he studied Accountancy.
Pastor Bola later performed his one-year compulsory National Youth Service (NYSC) to the nation after graduation at Kaduna State in Nigeria. After his one-year compulsory youth service in Kaduna, Pastor Bola got employed with a private Accounting firm in Warri, Delta State, where he met his wife, Pastor Jemine and they got married on the 6th of June, 1998 in Warri. In 2001, their first child, Timothy Alvin Jegede was born.
Pastor Bola, a dedicated leader at Christ Embassy Warri, was later sent out to pioneer two outreach fellowships at Ekpan and DSC from 2000-2002. In 2002, he relocated with his family to Mississauga, ON, Canada where in 2008, a second beautiful child, Iszabel Atinuke Jegede, was added to the family. Shortly thereafter in 2005 Pastor Bola was formerly ordained a pastor in the Christ Embassy Canada region where he contributed immensely to the expansion of God’s kingdom until the time of his ascension to glory on March 20, 2021.
Professionally in Canada, Pastor B possessed several decades of accounting & SAP expertise. He has deep knowledge of business operations and core processes. Being a Certified SAP consultant with strong ability to successfully lead complex projects made him to be sought after by many corporations. He worked as a Finance Lead and management level SAP Consultant for several multi-national corporations with one of his key roles being the SAP & Finance Manager with Deloitte Consulting.
After leaving Deloitte, he setup his own consulting outfit (Alvin Hayes) and through this platform, he continued to consult for several fortune 500 organizations.
His last role was as a consultant with the Government of Canada before his ascension to glory.
Pastor Bola’s ministry work was exemplary. He Served loyally and dutifully under several of our CEC members and Regional pastors in the Ministry.

Ministry Work In Warri - From 1994 to 2002 as the Senior Pastor In 1992 Pastor Bola joined LoveWorld Nation and he attended LoveWorld Ministerial College (LMC) in 1995. In 1999, Pastor Bola was sent out as a missionary in the newly pioneered Christ Embassy Ekpan Satellite Church. At the time, the membership strength of the Church was just about 7. This Church eventually grew to well over 300 alongside 2 new Churches pioneered within the 3- Year period with a track record of being the highest giving church after the mother Church in those days, until Pastor B. left for Canada.
Today, majority of the Leaders Pastor Bola raised within the period in review are now Pastors and coordinators of Mega Churches across the LoveWorld Nation, including in Warri, Port Harcourt, Abuja and many cities in Nigeria and abroad.
Ministry Work In Canada Pastor Bola was truly an embodiment of the Ministry Vision, an Ardent follower of our Man of God Pastor Chris, an Excellent Mentor with the heart of a Shepherd. Pastor Bola continue the ministry vision immediately he arrived in Canada and was part of the headquarter church, then in Sheppard avenue. Like in Warri Nigeria, Pastor Bola was sent out as a missionary to pioneer a new church in Brampton (Now Brampton West) in 2003. From then, he was sent to pioneer a new church in Etobicoke (Now North York) in 2004. He then moved to take over the Mississauga church in 2005. With his vison and passion, Pastor Bola was transferred to take over another church in Etobicoke (Now Etobicoke Central – Norseman – Toronto South) after Pastor Lanre Adewoye and Pastor Seyi were transferred permanently to Ottawa to continue their mission in 2009. He was then moved to Hamilton church in 2015 to continue his missionary work by Pastoring both Norseman and Hamilton church with his lovely wife Pastor Jemine as the resident Pastor in Norseman. Pastor Bola was giving a higher portfolio to be the group Pastor of the Mississauga group of churches in 2019 till he was transcended unto glory. Pastor Bola passion was contagious, and his faith always produce results. Pastor Bola hunger for God’s work was deeper and strong and demonstrated the Character of the Spirit of God in all things. He combined faithfully his ministerial work with his secular job and excelled in both successfully. Pastor Bola truly demonstrated exceptionalism, perfectionism, and expansionism of the Love-world nation. He won several partnership and achievement awards during his time here. Pastor Bola lived a life of blessings, love, joy, and kindness. His love for people was legendary and always interested in the welfare and happiness of those around him and those that were just introduced to him. Pastor Bola checked out from here to be with the Lord on March 20th, 2021 at the age 53. Pastor Bola was and will remain a legacy unto all that he impacted and will be dearly missed by all. His family,
