Bukola is our Outreach Team Lead! She is a first generation Nigerian-American who was born and raised in Philly. She grew up attending youth group and Pioneer girls in Baptist and nondenominational churches. As a young adult, she was also a member at Pentecostal and Presbyterian churches. Denomination was never a focus for her. Just Jesus.
Bukola wears many hats as a patent attorney, a non-profit director and an ordained deacon. She is excited to help launch Resurrection City DC, which presents a unique opportunity to be justice-minded and innovative around church.
Bukola can often be found playing tackle football, skiing, mentoring high-school students, bringing people together, eating skittles, hosting weary travelers and planning her next getaway. She lives in Washington, D.C. with her wife, Tonetta, and their rambunctious toddler, Temitayo.
