After the demise of Jimmy Odukoya father, Taiwo Odukoya, he took over the mantle of authority as he became the Senior Pastor and General Overseer at his daddy’s Church, Fountain Of Life on Sunday, September 17, 2023.
Jimmy was honored by Pastor Rotimi Okpaise who announced him as the Chairperson of the board of trustees and the senior pastor of The Fountain Of Life Ministry at the Church headquarters in Ilupeju, Lagos.
He has taken up from where his father stopped as he continues to carry on his legacy. Since he emerged as the lead pastor, he has constantly made headlines due to his powerful sermons and show of humanity and love. The actor trended on Sunday, November 26, 2023, after raising funds for two members in the Church. The first member(a man) needed N140,000 for his tuition fee and the 2nd member(a female) needed over 7,000 canadian dollars for her tuition fee in Canada.
Jimmy inspires them to have faith in the Lord and called on Church members to assist in raising funds for them. To their greatest surprise, God led many to raise huge funds for them and they shed tears of joy.

His burial ceremony took place on September 9, 2023, at the Church’s headquarters in Ilupeju and his children, grandchildren and top dignitaries were present to bid farewell to him.
