Jan 15, 2012 – Over 200 Pastors Resign From Bishop David Oyedepo’s Winners Chapel
Over 200 ministers of God, pastors have secretly resigned from Winners Chapel in December year 2011 after a disagreement they had with the General Overseer, Bishop Oyedepo, over the re-organization of the church.
After a general meeting in December, some pastors said they were no longer comfortable with some new rules he implemented.
Bishop Oyedepo was said to have told the pastors that anyone who wanted to leave the ministry was free to do so without any drama. A few weeks later, 200 pastors tendered their resignation letter.
Some pastors resigned to join other ministries, others to start their own churches.
Bishop Oyedepo was said to have given all of them a parting gift…from N2 million to N500, 000 each, depending on how long they had served in the church.
