Bishop David Oyedepo, the General Overseer of Living Faith Church Worldwide, has admitted that he is the world’s richest pastor.
The clergyman declared that he was the richest pastor in the world, saying that he met all of the requirements for the title.
Oyedepo stated on Day 4 of the International Youth Alive Convention 2022 at Faith Tabernacle Canaanland under the theme “Destined for Dominion” that despite not receiving a paycheck since 1987, God is still supporting him.
Bishop David Oyedepo continued that he strongly agrees with the reports that he’s the richest pastor in the world, claiming that he has ticked all the requirements for being considered the richest general of God.
“December 1987 was the last time I earned my last pay in this ministry. Nobody heard it from my mouth until 1996 at a minister’s conference and the Church for the first time in 2007. I wasn’t an object of pity; I already had my financial system running without taking a penny from your Church money.
“We have our books now being published in different languages around the world at no charge to us and yet they send us royalties. Have I ever taken a dime from books in my life? Never! To be blessed is the purpose. And yet it sells in millions and multimillions every year.
“All these corner life is not the way to live. And yet they say the richest pastor in the world is this short man and they are not lying because somebody never borrowed, never begged, and never lacked. Then what does it mean to be rich? Never one-day announcement that gets people jittery? And always giving and giving? Then who is a wealthy man? You better wake up!
“My God, this love is not theoretical. I am still on the field: Jesus loves you. In the marketplace, Jesus loves you. Motor garage, Jesus loves you. Under the bridge, Jesus loves you, He sent me to you my friend. You better wake up!”
