2022 Richest Pastors in Nigeria: (Oyedepo, Pastor Chris, Adeboye)


Richest Pastors in Nigeria – The word “Pastor” is derived from Latin and can be translated as a shepherd. The biblical understanding of the word pastor can be translated as the minister. In today’s world, pastors are middlemen between God and men.

Have you ever thought that pastors are one of the richest in the country? Yes, it is so. Just like so many celebrities and the richest footballers, there are pastors that are living the good life, using modern technologies like luxurious cars and private jets to help in the course of disseminating and meeting up with their various engagements. While some will want to judge and say whether it’s right or wrong, the good thing is these technologies are used for the purposes they were created for.

God indeed is a rich God, and this is seen in the life of these ministers, from the cars they use, private jets and lifestyle. Even though we take no pleasure in rating Pastors, we believe our readers need to have the knowledge of some of the rich men of God in Nigeria.
