My name is Olawale Akintunde AKINROGUNDE. My friends call me ‘Wale’. I am a current student at the London Seminary. The church is called Grace Church Walthamstow and is on the corner of Church Hill and Cairo Roads. God has given me the passion to see the lost brought into the care of Jesus Christ just as He has bought me. In doing this, I am unashamed to tell people about Jesus Christ. I have started and will continue to do this in Walthamstow. I also have a passion for youth work and really desire to see people grow in the Lord.In this church plant, Jesus Christ is The Shepherd. I am just an ordinary servant doing the work of The Master. I am a keen cyclist and do that often as a form of exercise. I am married with children.
I became a Christian in 2001, having realised the truth of Christ in the Bible. Originally from Arkansas. USA, I moved with my family to London in 2003 for the purpose of church planting and revitalisation. I serve as pastor of The Angel Church in Angel, Islington. As part of The Angel Church’s sponsorship of Grace Church, Walthamstow, I assist in oversight and occassionally lead meetings. I enjoy history, reading, sport, gym exercise, cinema, and spending time with my wife, Rachel.
