Adeboye – ‘I was richer than RCCG as a lecturer’

E A Adeboye speaks on arabic studies

During the three days special program to end the Redeemed Christian Church of God’s 40-day prayer and fasting program,The General Overseer (worldwide) Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye said that he was richer than the ministry as a lecturer in the university back then.

Adeboye, who presides over a global church with members in about 198 nations of the world, at the weekend, described his early years as the General Overseer of the mission as turbulent, saying the church’s total income then was about half of his salary as university lecturer.

The soft-spoken cleric, who took over the ministry, following the demise of its founder, Pa Josiah Akindayomi, left the congregation in astonishment when he declared that the church’s total income when he took over its leadership was less than his pay.

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.”
