Q&A with Pastor Ayo 

Where are you from/where do you live now?
I was born in Nigeria, grew up in Wichita, Kansas as a child, then Fort Worth, Tx for high school and have now been living in Houston, Tx Since 2008.

How did you come to know God? 
I came to faith in Christ while in college at the University of houston. This was when I really understood the gospel and believed it for myself.  

In a nutshell, what's your role? 
I get the wonderful opportunity of leading the church towards its vision and towards fulfilling its mission of transforming the Alief community with the love of God by making disciples for Jesus Christ. I am not only responsible for the preaching and shepherding of our congregation but I am also the “chief encourager” of our people.

Describe The West Church in one sentence. 
It is a place to experience rich and deep Christ-centered relationships.

Share a little-known fact about yourself. 
I am an undefeated cup stacking champion.  

Who does life with you? 
(Wife/husband/children/pets/parents, friends, etc.): I am married to my beautiful wife and best friend Amaechi and we have three kids, Ezra, Simeon, and Eden. And most importantly we have no pets :)
