Early life and education
Michael Abayomi Bamioye was born on 13th of April, 1960. He was born in Ilesha, ogun state,
Nigeria. Avayomi lost his mother when he was only four years old. His mother left him into the care of
his sister now Pastor Mrs Felicia Adepeju Adesiyan who took care of him.. Abayomi grew up without
the care of a mother and at a young age he involved himself in bad acts like stealing. He would go into
the house of people in the community to steal and he was pretty known for that.
He started primary school; at the age of seven at a primary school in Ilesha where he did primary
one and two. He went on to read his primary three at Ile Ife after that he moved to Oyo state where he
read his primary four and five and he later completed his primary education at Agege.
He went back to Mushin where he read his form one and two, later he proceeded to complete his
secondary education at Ile ife.
He studied at college of education ilesha, Osun state. He went to divisional teachers training college,
Ipetumodu, Osun state where he began his career.
He went to college of education to obtain his NCE from 1980 to 1983 after which he did his NYSC
from 1984 to 1985.
Of course, the part of his reconciliation with God cannot be forgotten. Abayomi has always involved
himself in different bad acts until a day when he was told the great suffering that sinners will experience
and was assured about the blessings and eternal life that await those who accept Jesus as their personal
lord and saviour.
He gave his life to Christ when he was fifteen years old and he also joined the school fellowship as one
of their members to worship with them and also to spread the gospel.
After graduating from secondary school, Mike Bamiloye did not stop proclaiming Jesus. When he got
to college, he started writing scripts, making short playlets and dramas in college. This continued as
he extended his drama to other colleges. That was how God was using him to bless the people in the

Career and ministry
He was a teacher working in a secondary school. But while he continued to do this work, he
noticed that he was not on the right lane and he was not fulfilling God's plan for his life.
So he thought about it and decided to resign from the job dispute having not seen another place to work
or another reliable source of income.
The inspiration to become a drama minister started from college when a prayer was led in one of their
rehearsals and they all prayed for him that God will bless his ministry and take him to a greater place.
Since then he has been moving with the vision and knew that it was genuinely God’s plan for his life
and he was going to follow it.
During those times, the dramas that were popular were all sorts of occult films that promoted all
forms of witchcraft and wizardry and all they pointed to was the need to fra those that had evil powers.
None of those films and movies demonstrated the power of God. So all the films were mostly those
films and no one bothered to take it upon themselves and create films demonstrating the power of God .
So Mike Bamiloye saw his vision out of all this and knew that this is what God wants him to do.

MIKE BAMILOYE WIFE
Mike Bamiloye was growing and it was time for him to know the woman that God had chosen for
his life. This was not an easy thing for him to do.
All the sisters he approached were all refusing his proposals. It got to a point that he was tired of this
and it has even become a thing of shame for him.
He continued praying and a day came when he met Miss Olushola Obembe, who joined their
fellowship and was also part of the drama group he was directing.
The two of them met and after praying the both of them knew that they are destined by God to be
together.. He proposed to her and she finally accepted his proposal.The both of them prayed and they
declared that day the official establishment of Mount zion ministries.
Mount zion ministry was established on the 4th of August, 1985.
After the proposal was accepted, he gathered members and they prayed together for the newly
The two of them told their parents about the wedding and they all assembled to gather for a
meeting. The marriage was rejected when the family heard that Mike doesn't have a job because at that
time he had left his teaching job to pursue the plan of God for his life.
Both families disagree on the wedding leaving Mike Bamiloye and his soon to be wedded wife in a
confusion. Because the.y all believed that if at all you want to work for God, Drama is not what you can
call a ministry.
And no one wanted to believe that frama was a ministry at that time.
This is amusing that a girl can actually agree to marry a man when she knows too well in herself that he
does not have a job.
. Surprisingly the two of them insisted that they are going to marry each other. When both families saw
that the two of them were determined, they finally agreed.
The marriage was held on the 8th of October, 1988. Most of the things that were used for the marriage
were sponsored by the two families as Mike Bamiloye did not have any money.

Discouragement from people:

not believe in these so-called dramas. Even his own church elders and pastor called him into a meeting t
o know the plan for this ministry because it was strange to them as there was nothing like gospel drama
ministry at that time,
So they all assumed that drama is not a ministry and it is not something that he can go into.
But despite all this, he stood his ground and did not allow anyone to change his decision.
This is a big lesson to learn in life - to be strong in heart always.
As their journey in life proceeded, they experienced rough and tough times.
At that time, their ministries had gone from church to church, community to community, state to state a
