Many who believe that the General Overseer of the Living Faith Church; Bishop David Oyedepo, is more of winning souls rather than mundane things has been left in shock after Oyedepo reportedly sack 40 pastors for “generating” low income from their branches.
One of the sacked pastors at Winners Chapel made this shocking revelation as he cried out online.
The pastor who is identified as Peter Godwin, in a trending video seen by SaharaReporters said he was employed on the 28th of August, 2020.
Godwin said he was invited by the state pastor and getting there he met other pastors about 40 and they were all sacked over low income in their branches.
He said, “Actually, by the special grace of God, our father in this great assembly, Living Faith Church received a mandate from the Lord to plant 10,000 churches in Nigeria and by the special grace of God, I was privileged to be one of the pastors that were employed on the 28th of August, 2020, that was last year.
“So after that, I started working, engaging myself in the work of the Lord. I tried my possible best to make sure I win souls for Christ but unfortunately, on the 1st of July, I received a call that the state pastor wants to see me, so I thought I was the only one. I was surprised, so I went to his office.
“When I got there, I saw other pastors too, over 40 of them, so I joined them. A few minutes later, we were issued a letter. I opened the content of the letter to see what was there and I saw that it was a sack letter.

“The content of the letter says ‘Consequent upon the recent performance review which revealed that your church growth index falls below expectation. Please be informed that your service as the pastor in charge is no longer required in this commission with immediate effect. You are to vacate your official accommodation and hand over all properties including the official ID card to the area pastor before departure.
“So I called the management the next day to know what happened since I wasn’t involved in any dubious activity or evil act. I was told by the management was that the church doesn’t operate at a loss, they also told me the total income that is being generated from my station should be able to cater for my welfare and accommodation, so as a result of low income, I’m hereby dismissed.”
Hhmmm..this is a sad but true reality of what the church has turned into these days. We await Bishop Oyedepo’s response to this.
