Peyi has served in Christian ministry for over three decades, and she also works to support and empower victims and survivors of trauma and abuse, and to actively serve in God's will in struggles against injustice and oppression. She is on the Children's welfare Board of the Stephens Children's Home, an orphanage for children whose parents were killed by Boko Haram terrorists.
Peyi is an ordained independent minister and together with her husband Aloja, and other believers, she serves in leadership at Cornerstone ministries, with a commitment to outreach and to supporting and equipping all believers to use their spiritual gifts and to be effective in the ministry to which they have been called. She delights in the teaching of sound doctrine, discipleship, and the indescribable power of prayer and praise drawn from the worldwide multicultural family of God.
Peyi and Aloja have been married since 1990 and are blessed with a joyfully noisy and argumentative family clan that includes: their three children (daughter, Olutale, son, Oseoba, and "baby" daughter, Yolore); their nephew Adeoto; and other relatives and friends who are a foretaste of the precious bonds and dramas that come with belonging to the family of God. Peyi is also a Professor of Politics at Ithaca College and serves on the Tompkins County Human Rights Commission.
