I cried, I cried, I cried again and now again with so much joy as I am reminded ….Pastor B, YOU ARE NOW HOME! 

There are men and there are MEN, You Pastor were neither. A great Spirit amongst men; You stayed Steadfast, Honest, Passionate and Zealous about the work entrusted on you. You last word to me were words of Blessing even to many. I love and greatly miss you.

Dearest Pastor Jemine and the family, Timothy and Iszabel, words cannot convey. My Gods spirit and Comfort and strengthen you.

Dear Daniel Bola,

It was shocking to know that you left us all, may almighty bless your soul; my first time of knowning you is when you were working in Ottawa at ESDC about 8 years ago, you were quite professional in your work. Once I knew you I realized how gentle soul you always were and you tried to help your clients and colleagues.
Thank you for all you have done for all of us. My deepest Condolences to the family. God bless you all and gives the courage to bear such a loss.

Rest in perfect peace pastor Bola. My deepest Condolences to Pastor Jemine and the family.

So shocking to hear of the early transition of esteemed pastor Bola Jegede. When I arrived at the ministry in Warri in the early 1990s, then bro Bola Jegede was one of the young leaders that shifted my paradym of service in the house of God. With such exciting competitiveness in the cell ministry, it was easy for me to catch the passion. Pastor Bola Jegede, however stood out in his lively, friendly, cool, calm and helpful ways which only got more enriched over the years.

Great warrior and mighty soldier of God, you have impacted many and left glorious legacies. We choose to celebrate your accomplishments knowing the time of the great catching up in the air is near. Farewell soldier.

My Father My Father, it been 7 days since you left to be with the Lord, I refuse to sorrow but to celebrate your life well lived. You impacted every life that came your path, since I met you in 2010, when you were transferred to pastor us at CE Toronto South before we moved to CE Norseman, I knew I have met my man of God, every word of God or prophesy spoken from you always come to pass. You stood strongly by me in my darkest days in this land, you brought light to my path and I am forever grateful and blessed to have met a man so full of Faith like you. I celebrate your life and happy you ran your race and finished your course , but you were gone too soon. My dear Pastor J, Timothy and Iszabel, the peace of God that surpasses all understanding is at at work in your heart, Pastor B left us all a great legacy that we will forever remember till we meet to part no more.

Hm! I tried a couple of times to write something but find it difficult to start - no words to truly express my thoughts. I have known Pastor B since he came to Canada. He is a true man of God - an ardent lover of the word and a committed follower of our man God Pastor Chris. He left a legacy as a soldier of Christ - he fought a good fight and won - thank you for all that you accomplished in ministry. Pastor Bola - a consistent and dedicated minister of the world - a go getter. I will miss your peculiar smile and jokes greatly - we will meet again soon. The joy of the Lord is the strength of Pastor Jemenine, timothy and Iszabel Jegede.

Bro Bola,

It is still so surreal, like a dream, we still can't believe that you are no longer here with us.

I'll never forget that year you came to visit the family in Nigeria, I had been unemployed for a year after NYSC. You took up my case and connected me to the person through whom I got my first job after service year.  You would never hear of or source out someone's predicament without seeking to actively provide a solution. I can't forget how you and your family hosted my wife and I when we moved from Montreal to Toronto, the atmosphere in your home was one of warmth, generosity, and hospitality. Your jokes and discussions - till today, we laugh everytime we catch ourselves repeating one of your signature phrases "It's a little chilly l'oni"

You were a big brother in every sense. I may not have spent a lot of time with you as a child but the few years I got to spend here in Canada with you were a privilege and blessing. The way you adored, loved and praised Aunty J, was a genuine reflection of your love for Christ. You were unashamedly in love with the Lord and all about loving people and making his name known. We still remember the word you shared "The only advantage a man has in life is the Word of God and the Spirit of God".

Uneku and I miss you sorely and can only imagine the void your presence has left. We pray that Jesus who you pursued with such passion will be as he promises to be - a husband to Aunty J and a father to Timothy and Issa.

I remember how you honored my wife when you chose to speak at the Career Webinar she organised barely 2 months ago and under short notice. You told her, "Mary, I'll do this for you, you know I don't normally do things like this, but I feel like it's only right for me to pour out into others lives what I've been blessed to receive. Even if it's just one person that's blessed by me sharing my story it will be worth it".

Bro Bola thank you for being a man yielded to the Holy Spirit, and letting him pour Christ's love out through you.

Till we meet in the Father's house. Love always.

Tunde and Uneku Jegede

Esteemed Pastor Bola Jegede was a supremely gifted man. Pastor was a man of deep conviction whose passionate heartbeat was for the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I am indeed saddened to learn of the passing on to glory of this great man of God. I send my deepest condolences to the family. Though, I mourn his passing but know with absolute certainty that today he heard those words from the Master “well done good and faithful servant” Thank you Esteemed Pastor Bola, I love you Sir.----- Pastor Abayomi Anifowoshe and CE Bayshore Family

My wife and myself are still in shock and trying to comprehend all of this. Rest in Peace my Pastor, Brother and Friend. Your Expose on the workings of the Holy Spirit during Foundation school in the early days of our Ministry in Canada changed my life forever.

God has made his heart known through his Son Pastor Bola Jegede. John 14:6 – Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me"... Pastor Bola showed us the way of God's love, selflessness, compassion, conviction, power, humility, grace, service (honorable service in spirit & in truth), family values and just all things Christ. Pastor brought us in! Hallelujah!

Pastor, you were God's eyes & heart while on earth; you were His outstretched arm to the high & mighty & to the most vulnerable & lowly in our world. I choose to believe that your passing is a catalyst for the next level among those you’ve strategically prepared & embraced for such a time as this.... These ones are uncommon- supernatural children of love, humility & strong convictions. I'm honoured having experienced the essence of your character; you always brought the manifested presence of the Lord & the heart of God, as you demonstrated the character of His spirit. You're the true embodiment of an Associate of The God-kind and as a result, your passing enables a "NEXT-LEVEL" transition of your ministry in our lives.

Sir, when the fullness of the shock grasped my heart, I spoke in NEW never-before-heard tongues. Since that moment, I've been another man. Hallelujah! Thank you for your love.

.... sending my love & prayers to our Esteemed Pastor Jay, Sister Bella, Brother Timothy, your closest family/friends/colleagues/brethren & to everyone who found God in you. We're strengthened knowing that even in your passing, your life is still transforming souls, expanding God's kingdom, and inspiring the region of Canada to do even more for the Master! We will manifest all prophecies released by you during your time in Office and you'll smile at us in glory as you cheer us on from Heaven.

I love you Sir... and mommy Rose, though still in disbelief, sends her love.... you're truly loved by us =)...... What more can I say, but that I love God for loving me enough that he ensured I experienced His Character through the word at work in your spirit.

Pastor B your memories, guidance, smile, laugh, lessons will always be with me. You’ve left a mark in my life and I am forever thankful for that. You were always on top; blessed and perfect. I’m happy you are at a better place. I remember the first time we met, after Sunday service and I had so many questions, you were so happy and excited to answer them all. You made me see God's word with brand new eyes. Thank you for your time, love and guidance.
Posted by Daniel Dickson on March 26, 2021
I have held back coming here to write anything. I can't put into words or text the feeling of this. But in all I trust God. The only one who can comfort Pastor J,Timothy and Isabel. A great work you did for the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, a true General of God's army.
I will dearly miss you in the time we have left before our first flight. It does seem though you wanted a bit more leg room and chose a private Jet instead:)
Looking forward to that time when we all see again.
You always reminded me that they could only
be one Daniel in this ministry,it was you Sir!

Indeed you were a friend who turned a brother. From our days in school up until a day before you entered Paradise, you constantly looked out for me. A brother ,a friend and a leader you were. The greatest joy I have is that you made it to Paradise though I miss you here on Earth . We will meet in Heaven when JESUS CHRIST comes. I love you Jegedus
Posted by Frank Prempeh on March 25, 2021
I'm most grateful to our gracious Lord for bringing Pastor Bola in my path in November 2009. Pastor Bola was my first Pastor in Canada at Christ Embassy Dufferin and Christ Embassy Norseman. Pastor Bola's passion for the gospel and the affairs of the kingdom were unparalleled. I was most honoured to be picked up from home and dropped home every service day by both Pastor Bola and Pastor Jemine. We discussed and analysed the scriptures in depth during the private rides with Pastor Bola and he always endeavoured to boost my faith in the word.
Pastor Bola also baptised me in water in 2010 into the ministry for which I am eternally grateful. I'm deeply rooted in Christ Embassy partly because of the ground work and support Pastor Bola provided to me.
There's a lot more I'd like to share but I'm positive there are thousands of others who were equally touched and edified by Pastor Bola's ministry.
Most grateful to our living God for blessing the kingdom of Zion with Pastor Bola.

Dear Pastor B, its a privilege to have been brought your way. Its was divinely orchestrated by the Holy Spirit. You were my first Pastor in Christ Embassy. You taught me about service in the house of God. You made an usher, then the head usher of the church to lead people far older than myself. My journey of service in the Loveworld Nation ( Christ Embassy) began through You and with you.  Thank you sir for the eternal investments.  You sure raised a champion for Jesus Christ in me. While your physical presence is very sorely missed, my comfort remains in the word of the God whom you loved and served with your life till you breathe your last on this side of heaven. Psalm 116:15 "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints". You were faithful unto death and now you have exchanged your sword for the crown of life. For this reason , my joy abounds and I'm comforted.  You overcame!!!!!!!. See you at the rapture very very very soon.  Pastor Jemine, Timothy and Iszabel and your extended family, Christ Embassy family are strengthened and comforted by these same comfort wherewith I'm comforted. Glory!!!

Pastor Daniel Bola Jegede, what a world? It’s hard to believe that the news about ur departure to be with the lord is a reality , it still seems to me like a dream, pastor I missed you more than everyone else, but for fact that the lord allowed it i can’t question God he alone knows it all, my joy is you’re resting on the Bosom of the lord, and you left a legacy in the memory of everyone who had come in contact with you, you’re a father and a good shepherd. Thanks be to God for the life well spent.

How could i hold back tears for a person who loved so deep and made a great impact in
my life’’
For a short time I've come to know him, it was as though I knew him all my life. He
made a lasting impression. He is a humble and meek person. His smile alone brings
encouragement and hope. Pastor B. taught so much about love and he expressed love
just like Jesus. Pastor was more than a Pastor to us, he was part of our families.
Pastor was a supremely gifted man of God. he was a man of deep conviction whose
passionate heartbeat was for the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and God’s children.
I think the value of a life is when you look back and say you impacted one person’s life
for eternity- how amazing is that? Well, Pastor B can look back on his life and be
absolutely assured that he impacted millions of lives for eternity.
The thing i adored most about him is that he remained the most humbled and giant of a
person you would ever, ever, ever want to come in contact with. He had this incredible,
loving presence of a person for masses, but then when you were one- on -one with him,
you were the only person in the room.

You were very understanding, always with a kind smile, encouraging and reassuring words.
Sad to hear the news of your departure, albeit comforted and confident of the hope of the resurrection.
Good night sir, rest well.
Posted by Connie Azogu on March 24, 2021
Dear pastor B, I really don’t know how to start addressing you in the past but that’s how it’s turned out to be. I have asked many times ‘Did Pastor Bola go with all the word of God in him or did he leave it for someone to deliver to us, the brethren. You were an ardent follower of our MOG. I can’t forget one of those dark days of mine, I shared with you. You agreed with me in prayer and gave word of prophecy. Your prophecy came to pass and we rejoiced together in fellowship. Thanks for the service you rendered in the house. I’m consoled that you are resting with Daddy. ADIEU Pastor Bola.
Pastor J, our Daddy will never leave nor forsake you and the children. Be strong.

My Uncle in Canada as I fondly call you, I still don't believe you're gone too soon to rest with your creator... When I close my eyes and think of you, I flashback to your level of generosity and your laughter that could move mountains...
You were always so vivacious, warm and loving that I suppose I just took your being around for granted.... I have so many memories of you when you visited Nigeria and I still hoped to see you this year unfortunately I heard the shocking news of your death... I will cherish the time that we had with you and the amazing memories that you have left behind. I will miss how you always made everyone laugh and how you placed a smile on the face of all... I vividly remember when you came to Nigeria 6years ago while grandma was ill and when we were together as one family to celebrate Mama's glorious exit, you were instrumental in organizing the burial of grandma – What a memory and good person you are... Uncle, it’s those good deeds of yours that we will have a huge void to fill. We will strive to continue that love and we pray you intercede for us as we still search to understand and dwell in your absence, we as a family will strive to share those values of kindness, humility, compassion and fatherly nature to the world; values that cannot be transformed to money nor learned in a classroom but only nurtured from being good to others.
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, although, the Bible says in everything give thanks, and I am indeed full of thanksgiving for the privilege of having had you in my life. You are INIMITABLE and IRREPLACEABLE. We love❤️ you but God loves you more and I know that he has you resting comfortably in his everlasting arms. Rest Well Uncle. Rest On Uncle B.
Posted by Sylvester Oputa on March 24, 2021
Up till this time of this post I utterly find it very difficult to believe that my only Boss by name PASTOR BOLA had passed on. He was a very kind young man and a very kind Pastor. I met him over a period of time when he came to Nigeria for his father in law burial. I was the one who drove him to the Benin Airport when he was leaving for Lagos .on getting to the Airport he gave me his contact number and address and ever since he gave me a job as his PA in Benin. I was in charge of all his financial transactions. He gave me the name GENERAL. I was his only GENERAL no more no more less. He touched my life and he touched so many lives I know that no can quantify. He was a nice and a very kind and caring gentleman not because he was a pastor and being a true man of God made him the best amongst equal. Nobody born of any woman will do what he had done for me. Before mama passed on, mama told him that I am his senior brother. I cannot quantity what he had done for me so numerous to mention. Oh the cold hands of death have snatched away my big boss and my big brother. Oh my God it wouldn't have been more honorable for me to pass on for him to be a life to touch more lives. I know that he will not let my family suffer. I made it bold to day to people that I have no problem with my burial because if he was told that I am gone he would definitely fly down for my burial but the good lord has spoken then who am I to query the Lord. My message to all Pastors of Christ Embassy if there is any miracles you can perform I would gladly opt to replace him. My good boss we were in touch when you told me that mama jos papa don die that I should call to sympathize with her and you then asked me General how are you guys doing over there. you still get food for house. Yes pastor. you sure yes pastor you still get small money for pocket yes pastor
And I think that he passed on after 2 days
That was our last talk. If you can call me tonight I will be glad to follow with out further delay. I sent you a Jim Reeves Record May the good lord bless and keep you and I never that the spirit sometimes speak but we will no understand.
Now that you have passed the border line of the other part of the planet called death
I wish you well. May your gentle soul continue to rest in in the bosom of the Lord Amen. Tell mama that things are no longer what she left behind. Rest in peace my big boss and brother.

Words are not enough to express what you are to me and my family. You are an amazing big brother, loving pastor to me, deacon and many others. The life and joy you exude is contagious, your humility is great. As our pastor, you had no issue with helping to deliver our car from Ottawa to Missisauga. You bend over backwards multiple times to see people comfortable, happy and smiling. You do it without expecting anything in return. You celebrate everything about us unlimitlessly.

We thank God for the opportunity He gave us to know you. You are love personified. When i think about the scriptures: "For when you saw me hungry, you fed me. When you found me thirsty, you gave me something to drink. When I had no place to stay, you invited me in...Matt 25:34-40...I see you in this words.

We take solace in the truth that you are only asleep and we will reunite at rapture. We pray for the overwhelming comfort and peace of the Holy Spirit for your lovely wife Pastor J, beautiful kids; Tim and Isabelle and all loved ones. Your legacies are tangible and eternal. We rejoice that you are not dead but alive and present with our Lord Jesus. Till we meet again at rapture...

Farewell Pastor Bola, you will be greatly missed. You impacted so many lives effortlessly including mine even from afar. Your entrance into a room commanded so much authority, yet so much grace. You were love personified and gave so much of yourself, watering everyone that came in contact with you! You were a true soldier of our Lord Jesus Christ and I rejoice because I know that you are with the master waiting for the rest of us to join you at the rapture.

May God’s Spirit greatly strengthen and comfort Pastor J and the children even as we are comforted.

It was an honour calling you my dad, and being your daughter

This one hit very hard!!!

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.
