Words fail to describe how I’m feeling! I’m at a loss for words.
To a father, Friend, mentor, Pastor sir
It was just a month ago I saw you .. we were jokingly planning for the next meet where I’d have a proper photo shoot with you .. you telling me you’d have plenty suits so you could change, I held onto that and the countdown till we were to see again was closing only to hear of this!
Thank you for the guidance, the leadership, the love, the care! the constant check in with me.
Heaven has gained a great General

Pastor Sir I miss you , and I love you dearly!

I still find it hard to believe you left so soon. You shared and exalted us to know who we are in Christ. You were a part of us, our Pastor here in Ottawa Christ Embassy. 
I salute God's General. I thank God for the opportunity He gave me to know you for the past 7 years as my Pastor. My consolation is knowing I will see you Sir when the trumpet sound .
Thank you Sir for your impact, your life , the word you shared . I love you Sir.

Its indeed a rude shock big brother, as i fondly call you. You lived every bit of Gods purpose while on earth. Uwese can't stop crying. I just cant accept the fact that you are no more. Baba wept like a child, he asked God why it wasnt him that He took. Bjay, you served God with everything. You led a life of sacrifice and selflessness. You large smiles, your large heart, your prayers, your encouragement i will miss and more. I will miss you too much. I pray the God of all comfort will comfort Sis. Jemine and the children, kehinde, folake, Baba and your other siblings ; and by extention all of us. Love you and see you at the feet of Jesus.

Such a nice person in every word, kind, funny, helpful, we always had a laugh every time we would meet. Man I will miss those encounters for sure. We have lost a great gentleman.
All my condolences to the family
Posted by Guy Duval on March 22, 2021
Although I only knew Daniel for a very short time, I quickly realized that Daniel was the embodiment of joy, humility, selflessness, a strong desire to help in any way, and a true model of devotion.
I always appreciated every chance encounter with Daniel…always feeling better after meeting with him.  Though I knew him briefly, it was evident that Daniel lived his faith.
As believers, we all long to hear the words spoken by Christ and recorded by Matthew (25:21) “Well done good and faithful servant…Enter into the joy of your Lord.” 
Daniel has indeed entered into the joy of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Redeemer.
A sad time here and now, but I will rejoice when we meet again.
To Daniel’s family and friends, take comfort in God’s gospel.

My personal person. I miss you. You were always so mindful of me and treated me like a daughter. You were always there to answer all my questions about ANYTHING. And you always showed me and others the love of Christ. I love the way you loved God and I admired your relationship with the Holy Spirit.
Nobody on this earth can fill your shoes.
I miss you so much.
I thank God for the opportunity to have known you. You’ve been such a huge blessing to me. I love you and I thank God for your life

You are indeed a man of God, your passion for Christ and love for humanity is second to none. You in collaboration with Pastor Kehinde brings out the fire in Ottawa. REST IN POWER PASTOR B

I knew Daniel for several years working and engaging with him on many SAP projects both in person and over emails. His kindness, friendliness and amiable nature was always evident. Being both originally from Nigeria there was kinship and he was like a brother to me. We shared stories from back home on common areas of experience, family happenings etc. The news of his sudden demise and at such a young age is really painful, heartbreaking and very hard to process.
My sincerest condolences and sympathies to his wife, children and extended family – in our conversations he talked about them and it was so evident how much they were his pride and joy. We can only take heart, knowing that as he is a Christ-lover, believer and follower, that he is surely now in the Loving arms of our Savior Jesus and we shall all by God’s matchless Grace surely meet again.
He will sorely be missed, but by God's Grace, his legacy will live on in the lives of his blessed wife and children, IJN, amen.
Posted by Shelley Baran on March 22, 2021
I worked with Daniel since the fall of 2019 and I enjoyed every moment. He was a very smart and knowledgeable person who was always willing to help. I will miss calling him for help and hearing him giggle at me as I complained about some complexity he was trying to explain. I will never forget how he made a special effort to check-in with me when my grandmother passed away. He wanted to ensure that I was ok and offer some words of encouragement and support which will stay with me for the rest of my life. I never imagined that I would repeat those words to his work team when I told them about his passing. He was a special soul who touched a lot of people. I want to offer my deepest condolences to his family, friends, and congregation. May God help give you strength in this difficult time.
Posted by Alan Zhang on March 22, 2021
Daniel, I can't image that you are no longer with us. I missed the way you call me a 'Big Man'. I can't appreciated more the pleasure you had brought to us to me since you joint our team. you were always willing to share with me your knowledge and expertise of the SAP skills. Your smile face on the last Friday's team meeting via Teams O365 will be my memory of you forever. God with you always, Amen!

Dear Pastor Bola,
Where do I begin? Do I start from Warri where I met you or in Canada where you continued soldiering on as a faithful? You were always dependable, trustworthy and faithful. You were humble, friendly and loving.
I know the scripture says ...."and to be with Christ; which is far better" Phil 1:23
Also, in Philippians 1:21,
"For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain."
You have gained my brother and worthy son. Presently, I will miss you, but you are always in my heart.
The comfort and strength of the Holy Spirit will be upon Pastor Jemine, Timothy and Isabelle.
Love Always.
Rev Ray Okocha

Good bye, Daniel.

1 Thessalonians 4:13 (KJV)
13 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...16-17
16 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: 17 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.

Dearest Pastor Bola Jegede you have fought a good fight, you have finished your course, you have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for you a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give you at that day: and not to you only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Thank you for the life you lived while you were here with us. Your life and times were characterized by passion and purpose in Christ Jesus. You were a true soldier of our Lord Jesus Christ, A worthy son of our man of God and a General in our Canada Region.

A soul winner, A passionate giver, A son of consolation, A helper of the War, result and resolved oriented, A Gospel Addict, A joy bringer and A help giver. An epitome of the Abrahamic exceptionalism. This is my Personal and Pastoral testimony of you. I have no doubt whatsoever that you are with the Lord. 

Pastor Jemine, your adorable kids and the rest of us shall see you very shortly at the RAPTURE. THEN SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD FOREVER. GOOD NIGHT MY DEAR BROTHER! I LOVE YOU DEARLY FOREVER.

Reverend Ken Oyakhilome,
Regional Pastor, CE Canada and Central America Regions

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.

His last role was as a consultant with the Government of Canada before his ascension to glory.

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.

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,
