David Ibiyeomie became born again in 1995. After he gave his life to Christ, he discovered his divine calling, and by the reason of that, he is a Pastor and teacher of the Gospel.

His decision was influenced through divine guidance to be trained under a great servant of God, Bishop David Oyedepo.  He attended full time Bible School in the Word of Faith Bible Institute, an arm of David Oyedepo’s Ministries in 1995. In the course of his training, he was greatly influenced by Bishop Oyedepo’s Ministry standards and impact.

While in the Bible School, the vision to establish and run Church based ministry became very clear to him. Therefore, on Sunday April 13th 1997, with 34 persons in attendance, and a mandate TO ESTABLISH THE KINGDOM OF GOD HERE ON EARTH through infallible proofs, David Ibiyeomie started Salvation Ministries, the Home of Success.

Barely 21years in ministry, he has become a phenomenon to the world.  On the 13th of February 2011, the church started 14 satellite churches in one day, with all running five services each; a new record in the history of church growth.
