Bishop Israel Ade-Ajala is a visionary leader with an insightful awareness of what people need to succeed and what he can do to empower them for success. Bishop Ade-Ajala was born in Nigeria, West Africa. Bishop Ade, as he is fondly called by us, is a graduate of Economics from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria. After completing his University education, Bishop Ade went to Ghana as a missionary and served under Youth With A Mission, Tema Ghana. He later joined Mercy Ships, a missionary ship that travels around the developing world and provides medical assistance and the gospel of Jesus Christ to the poor.
As a prolific and articulate teacher of the WORD of God, Bishop Israel Ade-Ajala has traveled to over 60 countries in all the continents of the world, preaching the gospel of the Kingdom of God, planting churches and empowering local church leaders through his dynamic and insightful leadership training seminars.
Bishop Israel Ade-Ajala is married to Rev. (Mrs.) Adeola Ajala, who is a graduate of Chemistry also from Obafemi Awolowo University. She has traveled alongside her husband to the nations of the world, preaching and encouraging women to rise to their full potential.
Throughout the years, Pastor Adeola has assisted her husband in many different areas as these churches grew and became established. She has been a part of Women's Ministry, children's ministry, intercessory prayer and the ministry of the Word of God. Rev. Adeola Ajala has a love for God's Word and desire for the body of Christ to rise to their greatest potential through practical application of God's Word in their everyday lives. Her teachings bring a clear understanding of biblical truths with an emphasis on walking in victory in every circumstance of life.
In 1994, Bishop Israel & Adeola Ade-Ajala immigrated to Denver, Colorado in the United States of America. They came to Denver as missionaries and served as pastors at an inner-city church in Denver for five years before the Lord asked them to move to Aurora (a suburb of Denver metro) to start Hands-On World Missions, which is a church-planting missionary organization.
Kingdom Connection Christian Center, Aurora was planted by Hands-On World Missions under the leadership of Bishop Israel & Adeola Ade-Ajala.
Our pastors are blessed with three God-fearing and wonderful children: Holly, Adebowale and Donald. They are inspirations to other children in our community.
We are blessed to have them as our pastors!
