Temitope (Teh-ME-toh-PEH) is a worship artist who writes music empowering the Church to love beyond comfort. If you ask him about the genre of his music, he’ll refer to it as “horizontal worship” because it mobilizes the Church, the family of God, to share His love, which is freely given, with others, particularly those who are different from ourselves. In doing so, the Church becomes an active agent of reconciliation in the world. Temitope has carefully curated a distinct sound to spread and reflect this message.
The name, “Temitope,” originates from the Yorùbá tribe in Nigeria and means “mine is praise.” He was raised in a multicultural home by his Nigerian and British immigrant parents in San Diego, CA. Through various experiences with family and friends, God began revealing to Temitope the importance of reconciliation in displaying His multicultural heart. Temitope believes that God has created each person to reflect His heart in a way that only they can. By standing together with our differences, instead of standing against each other because of our differences, we experience more of Him. This truth has greatly influenced Temitope’s marriage, family, social circles and ministry for the better. He is learning to appreciate how God has uniquely shaped himself and others around him through the power of the Gospel. The love of God breaks the lines of color, culture and creed, and reveals an invitation for every person to find their purpose in His greater story.
When he’s not sharing his ministry on the road, Temitope, his wife, Jordan, and their kids enjoy life together in Boise, ID, where they build relationships with those around them through their church, and interactions with the broader community. They are a family filled with purpose, and believe that God will continue using them to help others experience His transforming love.
ABOUT THE LUMPY COUCH
Temitope created The Lumpy Couch to provide tools for the Church to use in implementing the work of reconciliation through the power of God.
Generally speaking, Temitope sees himself more as of an “equipper” than an “artist.” He sees his music as tool for the Church to use, however it is not the only one. By pairing music with resources, such as visual experiences and books, Temitope and his team extend opportunities for the Church to exercise the language and practices of reconciliation embedded in his music. Many of these opportunities are further enhanced through partnering with accomplished professionals and organizations actively advancing the work of reconciliation in their own right.
