Pastor Tola Oduntola, one of the prominent pastors of RCCG in the US, who is currently the senior pastor of Jesus House Baltimore, has resigned from the church after 30 years of service ‘for not being rewarded’ despite efforts put into the service.
The RCCG Pastor, Tola Oduntola said that though he is going to be greatly criticized for his decision online, he would not respond to them.
The pastor, said despite his decades of service, he was never for once rewarded.
In a trending video online by Nation Scoop, the pastor did not go into details surrounding the resignation but he said that he is very sure that God is a rewarder.
Let them condemn me, it’s okay He said that though he apologised for many who may have been disappointed by his decision, he is not going back on it. A collage of the pastor and the overseer of RCCG, Pastor E A Adeboye
Pastor Tola said it is expected that he would be demonised on social media for his decision, adding it is ‘okay’.
The cleric also said he “would not throw stones”, adding that he helped built his former church. Pastor Tola said this is the last time he would be talking about his resignation as he wants to move on.
Meanwhile,one Pastor Gideon Bakare, an assistant pastor in RCCG in Akure, Ondo state capital, was recently sacked over attempted adultery. Olaitan Olubiyi, the church’s spokesperson, said Bakare was caught in a viral video with a married woman in her matrimonial home. Olubiyi pointed out that the pastor was seen in a very compromising position with the said woman, and as such, he has been excommunicated from the church.
The spokesman made it clear that the RCCG has dissociated itself with Bakare’s act which is contrary to the church’s core values. “The Redeemed Christian Church of God has excommunicated Mr Gideon Bakare and relieved him of all ministerial duties in the Mission. “Bakare, who was an Assistant Pastor in the Church was recently accused of an attempted act of adultery with a woman in her matrimonial home in Akure, Ondo state,” the statement read.
