Popular Radio preacher and the organiser
of the crowd pulling Destiny Encounter programme Pastor Peter Balogun
has treportedly pulled out of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.

According to reports, his first service
as the General Overseer and founder of his own ministry and church,
Citizenship Church recently took off at Jabi Abuja.

City People reports that Peter Balogun,  was the
pastor at the very popular Central Parish in Wuse 2 Abuja until
sometimes in 2014 when he was transferred in circumstances believed to
be controversial and many of the well to do members of the Parish did
not like the decision.

Even when he was moved to Jikwoyi , an
Abuja suburb, he continued with his popular programme, Destiny Encounter
and his continuation as well as the growth of the programme seems to
have irked many of the leaders of the church in Abuja who moved against
him and decided that proceeds from the programme should go into the
church account, a  decision he resisted.
The culmination of the stiff resistance
was his decision to part ways with the church by establishing his own
church the Citizenship Church.

He is married with four beautiful girls. He became a full time pastor while he was in Benin Edo State and
from there he was posted to Abuja and after serving in two different
parishes, was moved to the Central Parish as the Area Pastor. 

Central Parish is the richest of all the Northern parishes and one of
the richest in Nigeria. It has ministers, top government functionaries
as well as top people in the private sector as members. While there,
BALOGUN started his radio programme as well as the monthly Divine
Encounter programme which gave him a lot of followers hip especially
with youth and singles. His motivational abilities also stood him out,
so also his anointing in terms of prayers. 
By the time they forced him
out of the Central Parish after he had spent more than the mandatory 
three years, not a few people knew that it was only a matter of time
before he leaves the Redeemed Church and start his own ministry which he
eventually did a few days ago.
