Winners Chapel Reveals On Why 40 Pastors Were Sacked




Following the termination of the appointment of over 40 pastors of Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners Chapel in Ekiti State, a senior pastor close to the helm of affairs in the church has broken silence on why the church make the decision at this crucial time.

The senior pastor who pleaded anonymity because he has not been authorised to speak said that the story in circulation about the churches not making sufficient income was patently false and misleading.

It could be recalled that on Sunday, July 18, Bishop Oyedepo, Founder/General Overseer of Winners Chapel sacked an estimated 40 pastors of the church for not meeting up with the targeted money they were supposed to rake in into the purse of the church.

This, however, trailed different comments and reactions from social media users, while some advised the aggrieved pastors to approach the Labour Courts, others said they should take their case to God for adjudication.

Reacting to the social media outrage on Monday, the source said, “The Living Faith Church had the vision in the year 2019 to open 10,000 rural churches nationwide.

“By the close of the year 2020, over 80 per cent of these cottage churches had been built following a prototype designed and constructed by the church professionals. Then came the human factor.

“Ordinarily, pastoring in Winners Chapel had followed a pattern of training and discipleship since its foundation 40 years ago. However, in view of the massive recruitment to take charge of the new 10,000 churches, many who were neither spiritually nor morally prepared found their way into positions of authority as Pastors-in-charge.”

The source added that with good foresight, the church headquarters appointed seasoned pastors as Mission Inspectors to regularly visit, ministers and monitor these rural churches.
