1. Bishop David Oyedepo is the richest pastor in Nigeria with his Networth of $150m ~ ₦54b

David Oyedepo was born in Otta, Ogun State, Nigeria on September 27, 1954. He is a Nigerian pastor, author, business mogul, architect, and founder of the megachurch Faith Tabernacle, or Winners of Chapel.

2. Pastor Chris Oyakhilome (Networth: $50m ~ ₦18b)

On December 7, 1963, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome was born. He founded Love World Incorporated, also known as Christ Embassy, which has grown to over 40,000 members on five continents.

As a university student, he founded Love World. The central aspect of Oyakhilome’s praying style is that each of his disciples should contribute a portion of their earnings to the church, a practice he refers to as “sowing the seed.” If individuals lack sufficient funds, they are encouraged to donate their valuable possessions, such as jewelry, watches, mobile phones, and vehicles. To increase the number of “seeds,” the church approached hundreds of young businesses and invited them to become adherents. Pastor Oyakhilome receives millions of naira per month from “seed sowing.”

Additionally, he is renowned for his ability to heal a variety of diseases and illnesses. A South African member publicly accused Oyakhilome of hiring him to pose as disabled and be healed by the preacher on his television show.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is the owner of a private jet, extensive real estate throughout Nigeria, and approximately 30 SUVs, including a powerful Range Rover.

The church now has branches in 192 countries, including over 14,000 in Nigeria. Pastor Enoch Adeboye once took the world by storm with his declaration that he would build a church within a five-minute drive of every home on the planet!

Pastor Enoch is blamed for failed prophecies despite the success of his network of churches. He also sparked outrage when he advised his adepts against marrying women who were not members of the church and were unable to cook!

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Nigeria’s third wealthiest pastor, is the proud owner of a $65 million Gulfstream G550 luxury jet. He is chauffeured around in a bulletproof Rolls-Royce Phantom ($400,000), Land Rover Discovery ($80,000), and Mercedes-Benz Gelandewagen ($100,000).

T.B.Joshua’s YouTube channel, and T.B.Joshua’s Facebook page.
