The Total Income Of The Church Was Less Than My Salary- Pastor Adeboye
The RCCG public speaker and preacher, while ministering during a 40-day praying and fasting period, said when he took over the church after the death of it’s founder, Ps Josiah Akindayomi, the church’s total income then was about half his salary as a university lecturer.
“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.” he said at the at the Redemption Camp, Kilometre 46, Lagos Ibadan Expressway,
