Gone are the days where the Men Of God were asked to live in the temple and feed on the tithes and offerings, they were not even ranked among the wealthiest in their locality.
Now, Pastors and Reverend fathers are also counted among the rich in this world today as many of them work as entrepreneurs and businessmen.
Forbes has released its official list of the top richest pastors in the world and it is very surprising as an African pastor was ranked first among his compatriots in other parts of the world.
The list mentioned Nigerian popular man of God, Bishop David Oyedepo as the richest pastor ahead of other pastors in Europe and other continents.
As one of the main founders of the Nigerian Christian Charismatic movement, he also runs many churches in 45 African nations, as well as several in Dubai, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Other African Pastors in the list include Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of the Believers’ Love World; T.B Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations; and Pastor E.A Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG.
