The words in this book come from a man who is a living testimony.
If you want transformation and not just information, then you need
to read words from someone who has been transformed. Pastor
Sundays revolutionary message is well described in these pages. This
book provides Gods model for transformation and the mind-set of
a Christ-centered revolution all from an incredible man who has led
and experienced them both.

I know of no minister around the world that is more unique and
influential than Bishop Sunday Adelaja. I count him as a wonderful
friend in the kingdom and pray Gods divine protection and direction
over his dynamic ministry. The supernatural principles of this
book are radical, controversial, and life changing. They will make
ministers of the gospel reconsider their place and calling in ministry.
Our minds will be stretched and our concepts will be challenged, as
they should be, for more effective twenty-first-century ministry and
preparation for the coming of the Lord.
Dr. Wendell Smith,
The City Church,
Sunday Adelaja is one of those new breed of men who is influencing
a nation and modeling a new style of missions. While there are some
men who see success in another church or nation and follow their
example, Pastor Sunday is that example that men from around the
world hear about and follow. He is a cross-cultural missionary who
has made a new mold of what missions can do to touch a nation.
I consider Pastor Sunday a modern-day hero of the faith.
Pastor Robert Barriger,
Camino De Vida,
Pastor Sunday Adelaja is a true man of God called to preach the

be: strong, powerful, and full of life. If you want to have an impact
in your life, read this book, take to heart the message, and go fulfill
the Great Commission.

Sunday Adelaja brings to you one of the greatest Christian hero stories
of the modern world. Reading these pages, you will be inspired to
live a greater life than you have ever dreamed possible. Your fear will
be turned into faith, your burdens into blessings, and your impossibilities
into possibilities in Christ. Think of Pastor Sunday in terms
of: These that have turned the world upside down are come hither
also (Acts 17:6).
James O. Davis,
Billion Soul Initiative
Sunday Adelajas ministry inspires people all over the world. For
those who live where Christians are persecuted, we are encouraged to
see God quickly bring a nation from religious repression to freedom
of religion and democracy. We are inspired to see God use a pastor
to bring national transformation. Thank you, Sunday, for providing
hope and for setting such a bold example.
Pastor, Abbalove Ministries,
Pastor Sunday Adelaja has been mightily used by the Lord to transform
his society for Christ. In his book, ChurchShift, he teaches how
one can learn how to take full responsibility and begin to climb the
ladder of true greatness in life. If you desire to live at the highest
possible leadership level, then this book is a must for you.
Pastor Stan Toler,
Trinity Church of the Nazarene
ChurchShift is a study on the contemporary application of the relevant
kingdom principles taught by Jesus Christ and gives evidence that the
real mission, purpose, and mandate of the church is not to abandon the
earth but to affect and infect it with the culture and nature of heaven. I
recommend this book to all and believe it will become a classic.
Dr. Myles E. Munroe,
Founder/President, BFM International
International Third World Leaders Association
The Great Commission includes saving souls and planting churches,
but it is much more than just that. Gods mandate to us is nothing
less than taking dominion of His entire creation here on Earth. No
one has put this mandate into practice more wisely and effectively
than my good friend, Sunday Adelaja. Of all the excellent new books
on aggressively advancing the kingdom of God, this one stands out
as being the most practical.
C. Peter Wagner,
International Coalition of Apostles
If there is one book that can change your life, youre holding it in

revolutionary. I encourage every minister to study this book. It is
truly cutting edge present truth and revelation from the heart and
mind of God. It will challenge you and make you take a step beyond
just living a normal life and start living for a bigger dream. Are you
ready to begin the greatest journey of your life? Now, let the journey
begin because youre life is about to change!

life, church, city, nation, and the world in every sphere of life, and it
is bringing transformation. The only hope of seeing transformation

Pastor, Northwood Church,
Author, Transformation and Glocalization
Pastor Sunday is a man of faith, a man of vision, a man of integrity,
a man of passiona man of God! That he went ahead to start a
church in Ukraine against all odds, and that his church has become
Europes largest Evangelical church, is no surprise at all. It is simply
a demonstration of what God can do when an individual gives
himself/herself wholly to God and the principles of His kingdom.
These principles are outlined in this book very simply and clearly.
They can change your world as they did Sunday Adelajas worldif
you choose to give yourself wholly to them.
Bishop Francis Wale Oke,
The Sword of the Spirit International,
Each paragraph in this book blows your mind away and sets you
on a journey, a path, a new world of achieving the impossible and
thinking the incredible, making your previous dreams and visions
an ant. This book is a letter from God.
Pastor Lawrence Agbata,
Grace Network Ministries,
The interesting thing about this book is that it doesnt only communicate
vision, but it also communicates the passion to fulfill vision.
Church of God Lission,
Pastor Sunday is a young old man: young because of his age of less
than forty years old, and old because at such a young age he has
known what old men like me know and has been able to accomplish
what many old men like me have not been able to accomplish.
T. L. Osborn,
Sunday Adelaja and I share a heroDr. D. James Kennedy. Through
Dr. Kennedys passion for both the evangelism mandate and the
cultural mandate, Pastor Sunday was inspired to equip his congregation
to impact public life. What a mark Pastor Sunday has made on
Ukraine, Europe, and the world! I applaud his vision for ministry.

Several years ago I was discarding items from an overgrown stack
of mail. One brochure caught my eye. As I read, I was gripped by
Sunday Adelajas brilliant grasp of the interrelationship between
biblical truths and public policy. Instead of trashing it, I showed the
article to others. If one brochure is that enlightening, think what an
entire book might be.
Dr. Jim Garlow,
Senior Pastor, Skyline Wesleyan Church,
San Diego, CA
This book will be a catalyst in leading a strategic church in todays
world. When you read about the awesome experiences of Pastor
Sunday, it will inspire you to believe God for greater things. I cannot
wait to see this book published and read by thousands of pastors and
church leaders like me who are hungry for a powerful and extraordinary
move of God to impact our cities and nations.

Favor may open doors, but influence changes nations. Sunday Adelaja
is a man of great influence for the cause of Christ. His anointing
services in Kiev in a massive sports stadium are so dynamic, diverse,
and exciting that when they end after five hours, no one wants to
leave! Simply spectacular! That is the man Sunday Adelajasimple
truth, spectacular faith, massive results. Catch the largeness of his

Just as Moses was a meek leader who impacted change in a nation
by the power of God, so has Sunday Adelaja. In a meek yet bold
way, Pastor Sunday shows the world how to make the gospel socially

In todays fatherless world, where men abdicate their roles and shun
responsibility, God must raise up fathers who will accept responsibility
for families, communities, and nations. Sunday Adelaja,
a fatherless child, has become a father to a nation. This book reveals
the Fathers heart and inspires us to act on what is right.
