The pastors we sacked are unfruitful, blatant failures – Bishop Oyedepo



General Overseer of Living Faith Church International (Winners’ Chapel) has said the pastors recently sacked by the church were unfruitful.

Recall that one Pastor Peter Godwin had claimed that the church sacked over 40 pastors in Ekiti State for not generating the expected income from heir respective branches.

“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,” Godwin had said.

This sparked reactions from Nigerians on social media who questioned the system at Winners’ Chapel while others stated that the church was within its rights to sack the pastors.

Addressing the issue while speaking to his congregation, Oyedepo described the pastors as blatant failures and wondered why there was no buzz on social media when 7,000 people were employed by the church.

He 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”.

“We asked you to go because you are unfruitful. Unfruitful! Blatant failure. Doing what there? We have no patience with 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.”

In response to whether money was an issue to his church, Oyedepo said; “Money? Nonsense. We have never lacked it and yet we have never prayed for it.

“We are just simply obeying God and He is backing up what He is asking us to do. Awesome God.”
