“I confirmed Papa’s prophecy that I used to be very rich until I met that pastor who milked me dry,” Umani said, adding that it was then the Apostle invited him to the church headquarters in Auchi, Edo State, and blessed him with the car and the cash after confirming the truth about his confession.
“Pastors should have investments. Apart from ministering, pastors should emulate Paul the Apostle, Acts 18; 1-3. Pastors should have other things doing in order to avoid the shame of milking their church members. That’s why I’m into a lot of investments. I was called to minister and to deliver.
But I added investments so I can help my church members and I won’t need to look to them for survival.
All the cars I give, I buy from my pocket. The money I give is my personal money from my various businesses.
My church has more than 500 choristers, I pay the school fees of more than a quarter of them.
Many of the congregation I pay their rents. What I spend on my members in a week doubles what the ministry realizes in a month, and the tithe I pay to the church every Sunday is equal to the tithe the church members pay in two Sundays. This is just to tell pastors to strive to help their members not milking them.”
