Senior Pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, Sam Adeyemi, recently shed light on the circumstances surrounding his relocation to the United States, citing a series of unsettling dreams and concerns for his family's safety amidst the #EndSARS protests fallout.

The renowned cleric found himself entangled in legal battles following his condemnation of police brutality during the #EndSARS protests in 2020. Alongside other public figures, Adeyemi faced criminal complaints for their involvement in the demonstrations, prompting a legal saga that unfolded in Nigerian courts.

However, Pastor Adeyemi shared a different perspective on his decision to move abroad during a recent interview with Channel TV’s Seun Okinbaloye on the ‘Mic podcast’.

He disclosed that the COVID-19 pandemic initially prompted his family's relocation to the US, where their children resided. Yet, plans to return to Nigeria were delayed by the eruption of the #EndSARS protests and subsequent violence.

A pivotal moment occurred when both Pastor Adeyemi and his wife had unsettling dreams about returning to Nigeria. In one dream, Adeyemi found himself embroiled in a violent altercation, seeking refuge in the name of Jesus Christ. The intensity of the dream prompted him to awaken his wife, and together, they interpreted the visions as potential danger.

Fearing for their safety, the couple intensified their prayers, recognizing the significance of the foreboding dreams. Despite their initial plans to return to Nigeria, Pastor Adeyemi's dreams, coupled with the volatile situation in the country, compelled them to prioritize their family's well-being.

These revelations offer insight into the personal and spiritual factors that influenced Pastor Adeyemi's relocation, underscoring the complex interplay of faith and circumstance in his decision-making process.

Return to Nigeria
Mr Adeyemi revealed that whenever they (him and his wife) set dates and booked flights to return to Nigeria, he would have a bad dream about something terrible happening to him there (Nigeria).

The author of Build Real Wealth: Practical Steps to Regain Financial Stability said he had never experienced two dreams about the same event in one night.

“A few days later, we called family members in Nigeria, and one person said, ‘I’m feeling very uncomfortable about you travelling to Nigeria.’ We called another family member who said, ‘I feel uncomfortable about you coming. What is going on?’ We just turned and looked at each other, pondering the situation. Then I said, ‘You know what? I’ve been a Christian for 40 years.’

“At this point, if God is speaking to me, I should have an idea that it is God speaking. Something is going on. I don’t know what it is, but I want to pray more. And at that point, we called a meeting of all the leaders in Daystar Christian Center, the top 120 leaders on Zoom.”

The President of Success Power International noted that he informed the elders of Daystar about the situation, and they agreed to keep the church running.

“They said you’ve never deceived us before. If God asks you to stay, stay as long as He directs. We’ll continue this journey”, Mr Adeyemi stated.

The host of the radio and television ‘Success Power’ programme heard and seen in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East said he and his wife stayed in the US after the church leaders’ Zoom meeting.

“Six months, we were still in the US, one year, tearing me apart. I discovered that until COVID-19, I’d been out of Nigeria for eight weeks. To now be away when you had the church with 40,000 members”, he noted.

He added that the experience in the US highlighted Daystar’s strengths, including investments in training and established systems.

“I’m passionate about building systems so the church does not collapse. It is fantastic, and we call it an organisational miracle. It was almost three years before we had the Holy Spirit’s clearance to return to Nigeria.

“But what eventually the Holy Spirit would tell me was that he wanted me to shift my focus from just being the pastor of a local church to that global walk that I had known that I would do. So right now, the focus shift is to do that global walk while we keep Daystar running, leveraging technology.”

Daystar Christian Centre was established on 18 November 1995 to empower individuals to discover, develop, release, and maximise potential in God through the word.

The church has branches across Lagos State, such as Oregun Centre (the main branch), Lekki Centre, Ikorodu Centre, Alimosho Centre, Badagry Centre, and an online church.
