Apostle Femi Lazarus is an experienced Gospel preacher who is passionate, intellectual, committed, and skilled. His vision of liberation as a commandment from God drives him to preach selflessly. His conversion story was unusual, as he recalls that God was chasing him, not the other way around. His father, who he adores and acknowledges plays a significant role in his life, asked him a few questions after a night party, and that was all God needed to bring him closer to Himself. Since then, Apostle Femi has led many people to Christ through his spirit-filled preaching and teachings.
The Founder of ‘School on the Street,’ Apostle Femi Lazarus, continues to have a significant impact on the lives of many people, young and old. He received an award at the Royal Awards and Leadership Summit Ceremony held by the Ooni of Ife Foundation on January 18, 2020. In his words, “the land I had to depend on God to give support to be able to buy pure water for 5 naira, the same area where I had to ‘prayer walk’ from university to campus gate since there was no 20 naira to take a bus, God brought honor from that same place.”
As a man of God, Apostle Femi Lazarus considers Pastor Bimbo Animashaun to be his spiritual father, and he is known for honoring fathers in his speeches, teachings, and behavior. He has previously spoken with Fathers of Faith, including Prophet Michael Ojo Olowere, whom he and two other ministers visited days before the Latter Rain Conference hosted by the Sphere of Light Church at Obafemi Awolowo University. Apostle Femi Lazarus is also a student of Church History, and he recently debunked a widely held belief about Apostle Joseph Ayodele Babalola’s wife. He defended her, saying, “She didn’t maltreat the God’s General as many believe, but locked the door against him to rest, which the General most times doesn’t have because of the General’s robust schedule of programs and ministrations.”
Apostle Femi Lazarus’ Sphere of Light Church now has two branches, one in Ile-Ife and the other in Ibadan. The Sphere of Light Church began in Ife, Osun State, and after receiving a call from God to relocate to Ibadan, he formally inaugurated another branch of the Sphere of Light Church in Ibadan on January 19, 2020. Along with its major churches, the Sphere of Light Church also operates the LA Church, a campus-based church for students, with branches at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, and the University of Ibadan. The Sphere of Light Church is expanding in terms of both physical members and internet followers. The Church has concrete testimonials, one of which is of a Muslim lady who was healed of epilepsy.
