Tella Olayeri is the Paul of our time. An evangelist to the core. God called him by fire and he answered by fire to His glory. He was called to vomit fire prayers of liberation and deliverance to millions. This can be traced to his several deliverance prayer books. He has written over one hundred and twenty Christian books to set the captives free. Testimonies abound as his books are used for prayer, counsel, intercession, petition, salvation of souls and multiple breakthroughs.
He started his educational journey as a young boy in a military school, Army Children School, 3rd battalion Mokola Ibadan, where he finished in 1971. He lived with his uncle,Pa.Reuben Akinyele Omolola, a Police Officer in Sango police barrack. He was a barrack boy with a military touch. No wonder he is bold to face challenges of life without fear. He had a stinct at C.A.C Modern School, Ilepa â€“ Ikare Akoko, Ondo State, before he gained admission to St.Patrickâ€™s College (S.P.C) Oka â€“ Akoko. He is of 1977 set. He later attended, Ondo State College of Arts and Science, (OSCAS) Ikare â€“ Akoko Ondo State of 1979/81 set. He taught for a year in Isua High School, Isua Akoko, his home town before he went to a professional school in Uyo, Akwa Ibom (then cross River State). He sat for his professional papers and passed in flying colours.
He worked in several Companies like U.T.C Aluminum, Eleganza Industries, Chi â€“ Ltd, and Oriental Airlines in management positions.
It was in Oriental Airlines, Jesus appeared to him and gave him specific instruction to arise by fire and write for him. This he embarked on after passing through torture of life and hell on earth, when he disobeyed Godâ€™s instruction to quit his job to serve Him. After a little struggle with God not to serve him, which he dearly paid for, Tella Olayeri surrendered!
Today, people that come across his books and use them have reasons to praise and thank God.
The Paul in him counts. He is rugged, bold, dynamic, resourceful, charismatic, dedicated and spirited in the work of God. Ever since then he never look back to serve the Almighty God. His call is a testimony to those who knows him before he succumbed to the call of God.
Tella Olayeri is happily married to his wife, Ngozi Olayeri and blessed with five children, Miss Ibukun, David, Michael, Miss Comfort and Miss Mercy Olayeri.
