Lazarus Muoka was born into a Catholic family in Mgbidi in Imo State.
Lazarus Muoka went on to finish his primary and secondary school education.
Lazarus Muoka moved into Lagos in 1975 and worked for some time under a company before starting up his own business which he did until he gave his life to Christ as a full Christian. He also began preaching as a pastor in church years after he gave his life to Christ.
Lazarus Muoka is the founder and General Overseer of The Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Movement.
He claimed to have had many dreams from God in 1994 prompting him to pull out from the church he was serving as a pastor and set up his own church. Shortly after pulling out, he set up The Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Movement with the aim of “preaching the word of God”. The church which started with a few pioneer members has gone on to become one of the most popular churches in Nigeria.
Lazarus Muoka has been criticized by the miracles he performed as “stage-managed” and “fake”.
A former member of his church claimed Lazarus shortchanged him of ₦317million after making an unwritten agreement with Lazarus to invest in the church. There were also many allegations leveled against him by a woman who went on to record and sell such allegations in C.D formats in major markets in Lagos and some parts of Nigeria.
The management of the church denied such allegations as “baseless” and “untrue”
Lazarus Muoka is not only a preacher but also an author and has written a few books.
