Keeping Unprofitable Servants Makes You A Poor Manager – David Oyedepo On Sacked Pastors


Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church Worldwide aka Winners Chapel on Sunday spoke again on the recent sacking of pastors who did not meet the church’s growth index.

Speaking at a service at the Faith Tabernacle in Ota, Ogun State, Oyedepo said he has the right to sack pastors who are “sick and unproductive.”

He was quoted as saying

“Rural church is going on. All the offerings from rural churches for the next 40 years cannot build what they are building for them because I learnt some fellows were saying that, ‘It is because they don’t have offering that is why they said they should go.’

“It is because you are sick, you are unproductive, you will be plucked out. We sent you to go to the villages to reach out to minimum of 12 souls in a week and ensure that minimum 6 of them come to church. Then six months, you don’t have 10. You are unprofitable, you shouldn’t survive.

“Sound management brought us here, sir. Keeping unprofitable servants makes you a poor manager. Businessmen hear me now: keeping unprofitable servants makes you a poor manager. You have a right to resign, we have the right to sack you. It is a system, it works like that everywhere.”

Oyedepo said his critics like hearing from him and he likes responding. He also spoke on the church’s ongoing building of a 100,000 capacity auditorium, warning critics to steer clear as the church was not using their money to build the edifice.David Oyedepo
