“Daddy” as He is normally called by Mount Zion friends and families. A Veteran drama minister whom God had helped to initiate the fire of Gospel drama worldwide and much more continued in that fire ignited over three decades ago. A man born on 13th of April, 1960; cried at birth; sucked his mother’s breast; exposed to sun and cold just like everyone of us, but the way he sees and handles the deposits of God in his life has made him so distinct amidst the multitude. He started the household name, Mount Zion August 5,
1985; just after his wife, Mummy Gloria Bamiloye said YES to his proposal.
They prayed together and declared the ministry started! He was just 25 YEARS when the ministry started. The then youth with a great Vision! Fasted for a whole year in preparation for what lies ahead.
The first drama ministration of the ministry staged just immediately after the fasting at the National Teachers conference, Ilesha 1986, was really a FIRE ENCOUNTER! A REVIVAL! A result of what prayers can wrought, and ever since Mount Zion has been on an increasing level of glory and impacts, it was really an explosion when the blockbuster, TV serial; Agbara nla came into limelight 1993 with so many testimonies of encounters and salvation. The faith life of this Legend surpass human comprehension; in the early days when the ministry was seemingly insignificant, God taught him a
great lesson about faith, just at the point he questioned the replication of what he saw and read in the lives Oral Roberts, Kenneth Hagin, Kenett Copeland among others… God said to him:
“They used Faith; they spent FAITH as their CURRENCY. Faith! Faith!” And that birthed the ‘FAITH’ in the name: Mount Zion FAITH Ministries. This great man arose like Abraham GOING… NOT KNOWING WHERE! In the thick and thin, he kept going and moving FORWARD! One of his popular statements is “Wherever faith is, Jesus works.” On so MANY occasions he has acted in faith in obedience to whatever instructions he hears from his dear father, God. His life is FAITH!
His Ministry is FAITH in ACTION! His consistent tune to whatever God is saying, and his obedience to what God is doing has placed this great man on ever increasing greatness.
One more important cardinal point of His life and ministry is his art of GIVING AND SOWING. He can SOW! The giving and sowing is as old as the ministry, it started with sowing of the very first honorarium N5000, huge! That was 1988 to ten different ministries as instructed by God; gave out over 1000 photoplay magazines; organized free drama fiesta 1987 where feeding and accommodation was absolutely free for several days; the sowing of the then 1995 ‘ISACC’- the one and only ministry bus with tears, free books, free films, free premiers among so many. It wasn’t a MISTAKE the height the ministry under his leadership has gotten to today! The first Christian drama ministry to produced over 100 movies and several TV serials; the first to own a 24-hours gospel movie television station; recently own a television Network; a Christian entertainment broadcasting platform with over 18 channels. A great man God has used to raise several gospel drama platform worldwide. He said in 2015 when Mount
Zion was 30 years and I quote:
“I’ve not started ministry… The world has not yet seen the best of God in me, watch-out!”
God bless Daddy Mike Bamiloye, God Bless Mount Zion faith Ministries! AMEN!
