The Team

A little bit of History…

Hope and Bunmi Okhuoya are Pastors at Love Citadel Church.

They have been married for over 13 years and love God with all their heart. They are humble and approachable. They both believe in prayers, teach the word of God and the truth that Jesus is the only way to God and that he died for all.

The call of God to start Love Citadel came one cold Autumn night in Edinburgh Scotland in 2014 while Hope was in a hotel attending a work training. After pondering over the vision for 2 years, they finally decided to take the step of faith and start Love Citadel Ministries in 2016.

God led them to Cove Community in Aberdeen Scotland where the Altens community Centre was available for use on a Sunday morning. The church started at humble beginnings of just 2 adults and 3 children.

Since then, God has used the ministry to affect many lives and families within the community across all generations – from the young to the elderly.

Hope Okhuoya

My name is Hope Okhuoya and I am the Pastor at Love Citadel Church. I am an Engineer and happily married with three kids. I am passionate about the Kingdom of God and love helping people. I also believe the Church should be a place where love is experienced, and needs are met. Jesus said in John 8:12 “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life

I believe Love Citadel Church is a place that gives everyone the opportunity to experience this light that leads to life whilst bringing hope and love to a hurting and needy world.

I love meeting with people and I love music. I especially love watching animations and cartoons! Why Cartoons you would say?…. Well, because in a cartoons or animations:

  • there’s a lot of fun,
  • No one really dies, and best of all,
  • All things are possible!

….and that’s how the Christian life really should be!

Bunmi Okhuoya

My name is Bunmi Okhuoya and I am the Sunday School teacher at Love Citadel Church. I am passionate about God and love helping people to know God. I am a registered nurse with the desire to reach out and help people in the community.

I got to know the Lord deeper as a teenager and since then my passion has been growing.

I can boldly say that I have experienced God’s love and faithfulness in every area of my life.

Getting to know the Lord from a tender age has made a world of difference in my life and this is my testimony and I love to share this with People.

Seeing kids enjoy Bible stories and having great fun whilst doing this brings me great joy and fulfillment.

I so much look forward to welcoming families within and out with the community to Love Citadel Church.
