New Baptist Union President appointed
The Rev Yinka Oyekan has been elected President of the Baptist Union for 2020-21. He is the senior pastor of The Gate, a Baptist church in Reading, and has spearheaded the evangelistic street mission The Turning, which introduces passers-by to the concept of a loving God with the hope that a visit to church will follow in order to find out how to become a true disciple.
Yinka said: “There has never been a revival in the history of the Church without two key elements being present – prayer and a deeper hunger for the Holy Scriptures. I believe a great renewal is coming to our Baptist family because I sense a hunger for both is increasing.”
