RCCG’s total income was less than my salary – Adeboye

by Dolapo Adelana

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has said that on assumption of office as the head of the ministry his salary as a lecturer was more than that of the entire church.

According to The Vanguard, Adeboye said this while ministering during a three-day special programme to end the church’s 40-day fasting and prayer period at the Redemption Camp, Kilometre 46, Lagos Ibadan Expressway.

His words, “When God called me into full time ministry, I must tell you the truth, I was afraid because things were rough. I knew poverty when I was young but I became a university teacher with the belief that my days of poverty were gone.

“When God asked me to leave my job to become a full-time pastor, the total income of the church was less than my salary and we were to share it among some 39 people.

‘’I was really afraid but God gave me one promise. He said do not worry my son, I will be with you. If you are wondering why my case is different, it is because God told me that He will be with me and He has been faithful to His promise.”

  1. Daddy Adebayo, i am grateful for the experience you are sharing with us at this time, it encouraging me personally. It is my Ernest prayer that your remaining days here on earth will bring a total charge to the church of God and to Nigeria at large. Daddy please do not forget to pray for we youth at this time. For men of pulpit are gradually going, but as He promised that the gate of hell will not prevail against the church, so shall it be. Peace.
