Pastor Morris Okey Ikeotuonye is the Senior Pastor of Praise Chapel, a vibrant and cosmopolitan church in the heart of Rainham in Essex.
Pastor Morris gave his heart to Christ at an early age and started serving in the local church where he was quickly drawn to and developed a love for prayer and the Word of God. The opportunity to serve facilitated the growth of the intercessory grace and expository teaching ministry for which he would later become known. He holds a post graduate degree in Economics.
Pastor Morris has been in church leadership for over 20 years. He is well respected within Church circles as a man of integrity, prayer and the undiluted word of God – with particular emphasis on balance in all things and sound biblical doctrine.
Pastor Morris has a deep yearning for the total restoration of God’s people. He is also passionate about drawing out and developing the hidden talents and gifts in people and releasing them to shine as stars in the Lord’s vineyard.
He is married to Pastor ChiChi and is blessed with two beautiful girls, Zoe and Kaima.
Pastor Chichi Ikeotuonye is the co- Pastor of Praise Chapel Rainham.Pastor Chichi holds a masters degree in Hermeneutics, a degree in accounting and various post graduate degrees in management and education. She gave her life to Christ at the very early age of 12 and became a passionate leader of many School and University related Christian Events. This platform served as the springboard from which she would later minister at many University Campuses and cities across Nigeria as well as a pioneering Pastor of Oasis of Redemption International (Redemption club).
Pastor ChiChi is also the founder of Heart to Heart Ministries (a ministry which provides godly counsel, teaching and healing to singles and married alike) and is committed to education, reformation and the repositioning of the family as the corner stone of the nation, whilst also reaching outside the secure walls of the Church to ensure that the knowledge of Christ is brought into the Community through practical demonstrations of God’s love.
Pastor ChiChi is a sound teacher of the word, with a unique insight into the scriptures, but believes that her primary purpose is to support her husband and raise godly children.
