Mike Okuneye is the West Africa Hub Director for Multiplication Network.
Mike was raised in a Catholic home but never knew the love of Jesus until a family friend led him to a church that introduced the Gospel to him. Family pressure led Mike to leave this encounter behind until he was reintroduced to Jesus while at university in 1989. Mike dedicated his life to Christ despite the threat of being disowned by his family and was able to share his faith with his father before he passed.
For several years Mike worked as a missionary and coordinator in Niger before being called back to Nigeria. However, Mike was dissatisfied with his approach to church planting and longed for a simpler and more practical church planting program. Friends and former colleagues in Niger and Ghana who were working with Multiplication Network introduced the organization to Mike. When Mike heard about Multiplication Network and their training, he was excited to get involved. Today Mike partners with Multiplication Network and Living Word Global Leadership Mission to raise up generational leaders who will make a lasting difference.
Mike lives in Kaduna, Nigeria with his wife, Titilope and their five boys.
