Temidayo Akinsanya, Pastoral Intern
Temi was born and bred in Lagos, Nigeria for the first 11 years of his life until he migrated to the United States in 2003. He was blessed to grow up in an environment where the Christian religion was present and in his college years was moved by the Holy Spirit to consider the importance and necessity of complete devotion to the Lord Jesus. With a desire to preach from an early age, after graduation from Morgan State University with an engineering degree he enrolled in Reformed Theological Seminary for theological training. Although he currently works full time for IBM as a Technical Consultant, Temi’s dream job is to Pastor God’s people. He has been gratefully married to his missing rib Modesta since 2016.
