Aisha Oyarekhua

Aisha Oyarekhua is the Compassion and Justice Coordinator at the Valley Vineyard Church in Reseda, California. She serves as Compassion and Justice Specialist with Vineyard USA Missions, and is also a practicing attorney in California specializing in civil litigation. She is passionate about seeing people understand the heart of the Gospel and experience lasting spiritual growth. Aisha’s life can be summed up in one sentence–she loves God, she loves people, and she loves justice. Her fascination with the notion of justice and fairness began at a very young age and led her to become an attorney. She is passionate about access to justice for the less privileged.

Aisha has a heart for the incarcerated and does a lot of juvenile justice work with incarcerated youth; mentoring and supporting them to transition out of a life of crime to become law-abiding citizens living a life of purpose. She is a Justice Ambassador for Prison Fellowship International and a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate for children in foster care. 

Aisha lives her life by Proverbs 29:7 and spends a lot of time volunteering to protect the rights of the poor by providing free legal services to the poor. She believes that providing access to basic legal services to the less privileged is an essential aspect of loving her neighbor. Aisha is the Vice President of Christian Legal Society in Los Angeles and was recently awarded the Volunteer Attorney of the Year by Christian Legal Aid of Los Angeles.

Aisha earned her LL. B (J.D equivalent) from the University of Benin, Nigeria, in 2003 and was called to the Nigerian bar in 2005. She was admitted to the State Bar of California in 2014. She is a certified Anger Management Coach and enjoys helping people work on having a better handle on their emotions because she believes that good emotional and relational health should naturally flow out of good spiritual health. 

Aisha is a Spiritual Director in training and is a part of Derek Morphew’s Kingdom Theology Mentorship Program. She loves hiking and visiting the National Parks.

Speakers, hosts, and storytellers include a variety of Vineyard leaders and friends of the Vineyard.
