About Rhema Chapel

Rhema Chapel, a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), is a dynamic church where praise is enthusiastic, prayer is steadfast, and the preaching is impactful.

The first fellowship of Rhema Chapel was held at Brother Jimi Odeleye’s residence at 607 Beck Close SW, Off Ellerslie Road, Edmonton in February 2004 and the inaugural service at 8816 – 51 Avenue, Edmonton in June, 2004, with Ayo Adejumobi as the Pastor. In 2007, the church moved to her previous downtown Edmonton location at 10665 – 98 Street, known as Chinatown, a thriving community rich in racial diversity.

In October 2015, Rhema Chapel moved to her current new worship place. Here, the Lord is increasing us above and beyond all our expectations as we grow in leaps and bounds. As a ministry, we believe in growth and fruit bearing and to this date, to the glory of God, Rhema Chapel, being a Zonal Headquarter of RCCG in Edmonton and Fort McMurray areas has given birth to several other churches.

Rhema Chapel is a love-filled environment, a place where people can come in and feel welcomed, loved and respected. A center of transformation where people are equipped to live abundantly in Christ and pleasing to God, Rhema Chapel is a miracle ground where the Lord meets the needs of His people.
