Job Ayantola is the Founder and Chairman (President) of Deaf Christian Evangelistic Association, International.
Job grew up in a Muslim family in Nigeria, Africa. He accepted the Lord as his Savior in 1969 and came to the United States in 1976 for his education. He received a Master’s degree in counseling.
Job was the Deaf Pastor of Friendship Deaf Chapel in Litchfield, Connecticut for over 12 years. He was also the pastor of the Deaf Christian Chapel in Bridgeport and Hartford, Connecticut. In January of 2002, the Lord led Job to a new ministry of evangelistic work through the Christian Evangelistic Association (CEA), now known as Deaf Christian Evangelistic Association International, Inc. (DCEA) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and is administered by a Board of Directors.
This ministry has given Job the opportunity to travel proclaiming the Good News about our Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord has allowed him to preach in many states in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Dominican Republic, the continents of Africa, Australia and Ukraine.
A Deaf Marriage Conference/Retreat has also been added to this ministry. There has been a growing need for marriage enrichment for Deaf couples. The Lord has also allowed Job and his wife to start annual Eastern, Midwestern, Southwestern and Western Regional Deaf Marriage Conferences/Retreats as well as a national Deaf Marriage Conference/Retreat. The first annual East Regional Deaf Marriage Conference/Retreat started on April 2-3, 2009.
As you know, there are millions of people (Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, Deaf-Blind, and Hearing) without the Lord Jesus Christ. Now is the perfect time for us to proclaim the Good News everywhere (churches, crusades, conferences, retreats, Deaf events, etc.) and at all times. We need to reach the unchurched people for Jesus Christ!
Job is married to his lovely wife, Bukola and they are the proud parents of three grown sons. All three of them are married and Job and Bukola have five grandsons. To God be the glory!
