Emmanuel Mobiyina Oshoffa (full name Emmanuel Mobiyina Friday Adebowale Abiodun vihan Oshoffa, born 25 December 1948) is a pastor and spiritual leader of the Celestial Church of Christ (CCC). Many church members consider him the successor to pastor Philip Hunsu Ajose, who died in March 2001; however, a rival faction considers Paul Suru Maforikan to be leader of the church. Oshoffa was installed as head of the CCC in December 2002.
Oshoffa was born in 1948 at Kpave, French Dahomey (now Benin), but attended university in Paris, earning his bachelor's degree in animal biological science in 1976 and a master's degree from the University of Biological Science, Nancy, France in 1977. He was appointed head of the CCC Diocese of France in 1997.
