Pastor Michael I.Otano’s Concise Bio
Michael I. Otano was born in a home that reflected a father that was a no-nonsense entrepreneur and a mother who was impassioned for God and the truth of His word. It is with this unique admirable convergence that makes up the idiosyncrasies of Pastor Otano. From a young age he was driven with the spirit of devotion and determination to win in life. Having had the privilege of being raised in home that was God centered, it is of no surprise that the call of God into the ministry started when he was 13 years old. By the time he was 19 years old, after settling his focus for God, the call of God began to prompt him for preparation for a life of ministry. Leaving behind a formidable body building career and reaching incrementally towards destiny he engaged the construction/real estate field, where shortly thereafter he established a reputable construction company. He has built a life with best friend and wife since 1993 Rosie who is also the mother of their four beautiful children.
Progressing into the ministry Pastor Otano developed a veracious appetite for unlocking the deep revelations of God’s word. It is because of this discipline that he became a licensed minister in 1996 and was ordained in 2001 and went on with his education to pursue his Bachelor’s in Theology and is ambitious for a Masters and has expectation for a Doctorate degree. In 1998 he founded Christian Revival Center where he is senior Pastor. His ministry is focused on building stable families and strong apostolic believers with the vast principles of the word of God. He is recognized by his people as a visionary leader that inspires many to believe in God’s faithfulness and that all the promises of God are ascertainable in the life of the believer. Invariably appreciated for being insightful in his sermons and spear heading his subject, his preaching has drawn a crowd that has a settled love for God’s word. In 2001 he founded Otano Ministries which serves as the agent for a plethora of preaching and teaching series on CDs and DVD’s that continue to develop and sustain spiritual maturity in the lives of many believers. In 2012 Otano Ministries expanded with a new platform to reach the world with the gospel, the Reviving Your World broadcast, which will serve as a perpetual source of spiritual enrichment.
