A Queen, Prophet of the Most High God, Wife and Mother, Philanthropist, Humanitarian, Mentor, Woman of Purpose and Change, A Giver....

She is an accomplished Christian leader, Philanthropist and Author with a real passion for the power of prayer and giving as foundational pillars in her life

She has dedicated much of her life to supporting on the ground, grassroots initiatives which has seen her touch thousands of lives and receive over 20 awards in the last two years.

She was born and grew up in Lagos Nigeria, where before dedicating her life to full time ministry, she excelled in the corporate world as a successful business woman. It was in Nigeria that she developed her Christian faith within the Cherubim & Seraphim Church.

As an avid theologian and scholar of the Bible, she holds a BA degree in Biblical Theology from Faith Bible College Sango-Otta along with other academic honors.

As a humanitarian and philanthropist, she has made significant contribution to the work of the church physically, financially and spiritually and across many denominations and many continents.

She holds title of Matron and financial supporter in more than 50 churches in Nigeria and other countries of the world.

She is also Grand / Life Matron to many charity organisations and various Non-Government-Organisations across many communities in Africa.

This work was instrumental to her carving a niche for herself across both secular and spiritual spectrums as a great philanthropist within many communities, including United Kingdom and across Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria and other parts of Africa.

This has led her to establish her own charitable organisation - The Esther Ajayi Foundation to holistically cater for people in need of help, especially the homeless, poor and underprivileged.

She is a great bridge builder across many communities especially in Nigeria. She influences Secular, Political and Traditional leaders positively and spiritually for the sake of good governance, equality and social justice within society and most importantly for mutual unity amongst all faiths and denominations.

She is the Visioner and Sponsor of the Revival jointly powered by the Celestial Church of Christ and the Cherubim & Seraphim Church - tagged: Celebrate The Comforter which was hosted last July at ExCeL London. A United States of America (USA) edition is billed for next year.
