The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye said that against all normal protocols, Pa Akindayomi, the founder of the church made him the General Overseer of RCCG.
Adeboye,who gave the affirmation in his message titled ‘Let there be light’at the June 2020 Holy Ghost night also revealed how, Pa Akindayomi, was a destiny helper whom God used in bringing him to destiny.
He said, he spent only two years in the Church when he was ordained a full pastor against the norms of church protocols.
He however refuted the claims of some who were of the opinion that becoming a pastor in the RCCG is easy.
He cited the example of a man who he met in the church and had spent almost 15 years in the church before he was ordained a pastor.
Adeboye said. “People say it is easy to be a pastor in RCCG, that after about six months that one could be ordained. Let them come and see how easy it is to be ordained a pastor. They think it is easy.”
Pa Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi, you may recall was the founder and first General Overseer, of the Redeemed Christian Church of God
He was born in 1909. In 1947, he founded the church which is widely acclaimed as the fastest growing Pentecostal church in the world, as an independent prayer fellowship, the Glory of God Fellowship.
Much of the church growth however has occurred since current pastor, Enoch Adeboye, was appointed General Overseer in 1980.
