President and Founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has owned up to sacking 40 pastors of the church, saying they were unfaithful and not fruitful.

The bishop said this while reacting to the troll on the media regarding the church sacking over 40 pastors because they were not meeting expectations.

Recall that some pastors of the church were sacked for allegedly not generating enough income for the church.

In two different videos which went viral on social media, two of the sacked pastors, Peter Godwin and InChristed Michael who claimed they were among the sacked pastors were seen lamenting the situation.

The cleric while speaking to a congregation said;” 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 N14 million. 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. 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.

”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.

”Now the next set is about to be flagged off, just certifying the landed property issues, nothing else. We have no lack of anything. The world is confused. Walking in the light of God’s Word. Please, obey God to the full and watch out for His manifestations in your life.

”Well, you don’t need so much mathematics to know a thousand buildings; that is not N1,000 each, that is not N10 million each, that is not 12 Million (naira) each, that is not 14 million (naira) each. Some are 35 million (naira). At a go!

”We have never seen it ourselves. We just watch God doing it. The only criteria: How many souls have they gotten there? Then, build for them. How many souls? Not once: how much money do they have?

”You want to see what we see, go and do what we do. But if you are not saved, there is nothing you do that matters.”
