Youth Minister, Bible Church of Reconciliation
Product Manager, PEAK6 Investments
The life of Oluseun Kayode Arowolaju is one dedicated to the scripture written in 1 Timothy 6:12, which calls us to, “Fight the good fight of the faith.”
Born in 1993 into a family of teachers and entrepreneurs in Akure, Ondo State located in the South-western part of Nigeria, Oluseun and his family have found new and humble beginnings in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Oluseun is proud of his family’s humble beginning. Moving to America with just $100 and a suitcase began the story he proudly shares to continuously inspire others to have faith, embrace risk and think critically.
As a youth, Oluseun discovered a passion for sports and technology after being introduced to football by his best friend, and a computer by his father. Using his imagination, he would put pillows in shoulders to simulate football shoulder pads and stack boxes on one another in building a “robot”. By the time he was able to pursue sports and technology more practically, he obtained a Bachelors (B.S.) degree in Sports Management from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2016 where he also played college football. He later pursued a Masters (M.S.) degree in Technology Management from the same university where he left to start a technology company Mesh++ in 2017. In the summer of 2018, he taught himself to code and landed a job at PEAK6 Investments, where he’s currently a Data Product Manager.
One of the motivations for his academic, athletic and professional achievements was Oluseun Arowolaju’s desire to break the stereotypes that people used to box him in and out. By thinking outside of the box, he proved one can find success in multiple domains, especially in technology. This ultimately led to the beginning of his ministry after being baptized in the Jordan River, on November 10, 2019, at the Yardenit Baptism Site in Israel.
At the intersection between faith and fortune, Oluseun Arowolaju has received, through various spiritual and financial ventures, great respect from followers of Christ and operators of businesses. He sees the church as a community to bring to fruition of God’s Perfect Will in our lives and plans on leveraging his gift of speaking, technology and team building to plant this seed in the lives of 1,000,000 people.
With such a big goal, his plans on scaling including using software to do the work of The Most High. This website is the first instance of this larger vision. For now, Oluseun is focused on executing the roles granted to him at Bible Church of Reconciliation as well as PEAK6 Investments.
Oluseun is the Founder of a media company formerly known as KiD Media, where he worked with a variety of people from pastors, to professional athletes and politicians. Using his gift of collaboration, he has plans of converting it to a ministry in which he leverages media to achieve the Perfect Will of God.
Oluseun has written over 100 articles read by thousands of people and continues to communicate via many different forms as a medium to deliver his message to those willing to hear and see.
Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
– Matthew 13:13
He is a self-proclaimed polymath who leverages what he has learned from multiple disciplines to bring a unique perspective to solving specific problems.
His goal is to assist people in tapping into their hidden potential, by leveraging their strengths to conquer their weaknesses. These days he is currently sharpening my skills in Biblical history and philosophy, product management and programming. In his journey of polymathy, he has decided to go DEEP into sales engineering, social engineering and software engineering.
