Founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners Chapel Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, has justified the recent sacking of some Pastors of the Ministry.
According to the popular clergyman, the Pastors that were fired were unfruitful and blatant failures who couldn’t progress in their various branches.
The reaction from Pastor Oyedepo was on the heels of a viral video, where one Pastor of the Church, Peter Godwin said he was among those that were sacked.
According to him, the Church fired him because his branch wasn’t generating enough money.
In the video, the Pastor said, “I was told by the management that the Church doesn’t operate at a loss.”
“They also told me that 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.”
The video which has been seen by many Nigerians caused a lot of uproar with many challenging the way the Church is being run.
Reacting to the uproar caused by the sack in one of his services, David Oyedepo said, “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”.
“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.”
“When we employed 7,000 people at a time, social media was dead.”
“We have more employees in this organisation than most of the States. No one is owed a dime salary and we don’t borrow, we don’t beg. Ask our bank whether we take overdraft.”
“We are covenant bound, working in the light of God’s word, enjoying an open Heaven.”
