Pastor ‘Tunde Bakare was born to a Muslim mother and a Muslim father, whom he did not grow up to know. His mother, Madam Abigail Eebudola Bakare raised him along with other siblings. Married to Mrs. Olayide Bakare in 1984, Pastor Bakare’s marriage has played a pivotal role in his life, career and ministry. "Mrs. B", as she is affectionately called by her husband, has been involved in ministry work all her adult life. First a co-pastor of The Latter Rain Assembly and presently a member of the board of trustees of the Church, Mrs Bakare has been instrumental to the growth and development of her husband’s ministry. Pastor and Mrs. Bakare have raised two girls and three boys in their twenty six years of marriage.
