Meet Toyin

Toyin JohnToyin John brings a lot of spirit-filled energy, authenticity, passion and relatability on stage. Due to her own personal journey, she is able to connect with her audience in a way that, allows them to relate to her messages.

She was led by God to birth the Giant Within Ministries, an international Christian ministry that is dedicated to preaching Christ and transforming lives.

She is an ordained and anointed Minister of the Gospel, who passionately shares the truth of God's word in churches and Christian based events and conferences. Apart from speaking, she holds training workshops in churches, to equip the Saints to have a stronger walk with God, do the work of ministry with purpose, and serve effectively in their local churches.

 In January 2011, as led by God,  Toyin John birthed the PUSH Prayer Movement, a Prayer Ministry that consists of  groups of dedicated Prayer Warriors in different nations. They meet weekly on several telephone conference calls, according to their regions. The aim of this Prayer Ministry is to awaken the Believers to new levels of authority in Christ, to enlarge their spiritual capacity in order for them to fulfill God's purpose for their lives. Prayer Warriors come together  in prayer, seeking to see the will of God prevail in people's lives, nations and situations. This Movement is now active in ten countries and counting.

She holds POWER UP! events in various cities across America and internationally. At these events, her aim is to awaken the attendees to discover, activate and walk in the God-given power within them. This, she believes, enables them to fulfill the God-ordained purpose for their lives. People walk away from these events truly powered up to the next level of their destiny in God.

She birthed the PURPOSE ACTIVATION 2 REALIZATION training workshops, that aim at equipping the participants at different levels of their journey in life, to soar to new heights in their quest to fulfill their purpose. At these workshops, participants leave, filled with hope, clarity, sense of direction and audacious faith to move on the next level. They are able to spring into actions that bring actual results.
