Bishop David Oyedepo, President and Founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, AKA Winners Chapel Worldwide has described it as ‘nonsense, allegation that he sacked some pastors for not generating enough income in their branches.
TOPCITYVIBE had reported that a Winners Pastor, identified as Peter Godwin, alleged that he and 40 other pastors were sacked for underperforming.
The video has generated reactions from Nigerians as some condemned Bishop David Oyedepo, while others said the action was in line with the gospel of Christ.
Reacting, on Wednesday, Oyedepo said the only criteria for their sack was how many souls had been won in the church.
Oyedepo maintained that the pastors were sacked because they were unfruitful.
When we employed 7000 pastors at once social media was dead. We have more employees than most states in Nigeria and we have owed them or taken bank overdrafts once.
”The pastors were asked to go because they were unfruitful. Many of the churches built can never pay for the church building in 30 years. We have no patience for failure here.
”We have built more than 1,000 Churches in rural areas where in the next 30 years, they can never generate such fund, with each costing more than 14 Million Naira. We are hunting after souls, not income.
”People are confused about our Ministry. I learnt some fellows said, “you know, they are not bringing income, that is why they asked them to go.”
”We asked you to go because you are unfruitful. Unfruitful! Blatant failure
