The set man...Pastor Dr. Larry Ovie
A rising star has been born to the family of Madam Lady Otulugbu nee warri and Late Pa. Jonathan Otulugbu Ovie of Orogun, Delta State , Nigeria.
This Child, born in June 1963 would eventually rise to become an outstanding star worthy of emulation and support, but through a hard way and humble beginning at the Orogun Primary School, Orogun, Delta State . He later proceeded to Wugheru Grammar School, Delta State .
Faced with the challenges of life, he relocated to Lagos State to seek greener pasture in order to further his education, and cater for his siblings and parents, being the 1st child, a burdensome task for any young lad at the time.
He started his career at a Furniture Company in Lagos State, not knowing this would be the cradle of his own business ventures to come. In 1985, he set his own company-Larry Best Furniture.
In 1986, out of his burning desire and love for music, he went to a musical school in Ajegunle, Lagos State and before he finished he met one young and gifted Mack Elvis Nzebude who later became his musical partner, hence the creation of De BOOMERS, a unique and exciting musical career. Between the year 1986 to 1990 De Boombers released their first Album: - “Africa Would Rise Again” It sold like hot cake 2nd Album: “ Nigeria is our Home” came a year later.
1991 marked a year of great expansion, as the now thriving furniture business boomed tremendously, that diversification into communication and securities business became inevitable. Larry Best Securities performed so well that it secured for itself the sole franchise of the CCS Security’s of London .
Our outstanding shining star, in a search for the safe delivery of his 2nd child traveled to the Republic of Ireland, leaving behind an enormous wealth and thriving business venture, and got hijacked by the call of God to be ordained as shepherd and Pastor to God’s People, hence the birth of the Faith Christian Fellowship (FCF) in 2001, after an eight months of consistent fellowshipping with neither tithe and offering.
Through committed leadership and shepherding, the FCF vision of bringing the joy of the Lord to God’s people continued to grow. The Faith Christian Fellowship became the Praise Ministry with God’s confirmation.
Since ordained Pastor, he has committed himself to the call and church of God, no wonder in December 2004 God gave him the privilege to Minister to international audience and believers of fifty thousand in San Antonio & Dallas in Texas, United State of America, and yet developing bigger collaboration with other anointed men of God in Ireland, UK, Africa, and other parts of Europe and America.
His passion for community service has never abated even here in Ireland , he has initiated so many community based programs such as the annual Galway re-enactment of the Passion of Christ, through the church and support of his other pastor pioneered the Galway for Christ, free computer/internet services as well as the Voluntary Crèche project. The Jesus Love Club is the newly established project and its gaining recognition in the community.
In spite of his personal and deep knowledge study of the Bible that applied himself to, he is currently studying for his for Bachelor in Theology from the Bible College in Dublin , to further develop himself in the service of our Lord Jesus.
Aside from been a pastor, he is also an astute businessman, Contractor and a BISSC certified and Qualified Cleaning Operative- Ireland . He is a passionate and tender husband, a loving father and a leader.
Our outstanding Pastor is blessed with 2 wonderful children: Ella Ovie and Larry Ovie Jr.
