Founder and Executive Director of the International Bible Prophecy Revival Ministry (IBPR)
“Reaching to Rescue and Teaching to Transform the lives of people we serve,” (Matt. 28:19-20). Missionary Michael Ladele is the Founder and Executive Director of the International Bible Prophecy Revival Ministry (IBPR), founded in 1994. He and his wife of forty-five years, Louvenia, serve in ministry together and have been blessed with six beautiful and uniquely gifted children, thirteen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Born in Zaria in the northern part of Nigeria in the mid-forties to proud parents Mark and Monica Ladele, he is the second oldest of eleven siblings – eight brothers and three sisters. After leaving his native country in 1972 for Philadelphia, PA, he pursued an education at Temple University, earned a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1977 and went on to earn a master’s degree in Business Administration from LaSalle University in 1986.
In 1987, Missionary Ladele met his mentors, the late Pastor Benjamin Smith at Deliverance Evangelistic Church and accepted Christ and was later baptized by Dr. Wesley Pinnock of True Light Fellowship Church.
It was through these encounters and under his mentors’ tutelage that he received his formal training and call to the ministry. God released him to embark upon his own ministry, IBPR, while he served under the leadership of his senior pastor Dr. Pinnock who supported the global mission’s ministry efforts in its conception and the 2008 construction building of True Light Christian Missionary Academy in Lagos, Nigeria.
The IBPR Ministry mission’s objective is “to fulfill the vision by bringing the love of God into the daily lives of those with whom we live.” Missionary Ladele is anointed and has the gift of speaking a few Nigerian languages which is an asset that allows him to minister to various groups in Nigeria.
In 2015, Missionary Ladele and Sister Louvenia joined Bethel Deliverance International Fellowship of Churches under the leadership of Bishop Eric Lambert Jr. God is trusting the Ladeles with the covenant task of leading souls for His Kingdom. They strive daily to ensure that “We are the church where the mission of Christ is meeting the needs of the people” and it is their desire to “Make the Kingdom Proud.”
