NEWS: Winner Chapel Denies Oyedepo’s Retirement

The Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners Chapel, on
Friday, denied rumours that the founder of the church, Bishop David
Oyedepo, was set to retire from active service.
In a text message sent to our correspondent late on Friday, the
Church’s Mandate Secretary, Pastor Yemi Nathaniel, said any such reports
were not true.
He said, “Every apostolic ministry like ours is a priestly commission
and because priesthood is for a lifetime, his (Oyedepo) presidency and
priesthood is for a lifetime.
“Moses, Joshua, Aaron ministered and his son also did; Elijah, Elisha
and Paul, among others. Therefore any online publication purporting his
retirement is false.
“For those interested, the Red Book, The Mandate, explains our
succession plan. The good news of generational success as promised by
God for the righteous must be causing pains for the ignorant, the
envious and the wicked.
 Refuse to be a part of propagating evil.”
Reports on Friday had claimed that Oyedepo’s eldest son, David Jnr, who
presides over the branch of the church in London, United Kingdom, was to
be named the resident pastor of Canaanland, the church’s headquarters
in Ota, Ogun State on January 10.
According to reports, while operating as the resident pastor of the Faith Tabernacle in Ota, David Jnr will be saddled with the responsibility of overseeing the activities of the church worldwide.
