Nigerian Man Goes On Dragons Den, Wants Money To Start A Church. by Nobody: 10:35pm On Dec 21, 2013
ome people think the Dragons really made their money by appearing on the show


London - A Nigerian entrepreneur has appeared on Dragon's Den, a reality television programme in which budding entrepreneurs get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multi-millionaires willing to invest their own cash.

The eloquent young man who introduced himself as Pastor Jonah, wanted two hundred and fifty thousand pounds to start a new Pentecostal church, and promised returns of 500% within the first three years.

Producers of the series described the recently filmed episode as featuring the most incredible idea ever brought to the show.
They said of the Nigerian entrepreneur, “He was very confident and very smartly dressed in an Armani suit. He was charismatic and extremely knowledgeable of the Bible, and he appeared to have really done his research.”

His opening line was, "Brothers and sister, the Lord has brought me here today to tell you that there is no business like church business."

In the episode which will air next season, the entrepreneur defends his business case by presenting data gathered from churches in Nigeria where he plans to setup his own church.
In a tense moment when he is being grilled by[b] Theo Paphitis, he asks the Dragons a rhetorical question, “How many of you own private jets?”

"You don't want to miss this one,"[/b] a member of the production crew told us. She however declined to comment on the outcome of the pitch, saying instead, "Let's just say, the Dragons know a good investment when they see one.”

As valid as the fellow's observations are, it is sad. It is sad that many churches are essentially businesses, not in the sense of requiring dedication or seriousness but as a commercial venture. Akin to the sole proprietorship models. The names God & Jesus are used as subconscious validators to lure the ignorant and foolhardy.

So all he is interested in is the tithes and offerings? Let these churches learn a clue from the likes of Apostle Chibuzor Nwankwo of Omega Power Ministry (OPM) worldwide,lots of charity work and donations to the poor. That is what churches are meant to be doing. Later now people like this one will stand up tomorrow and start throwing stones and passing judgement at other people (fellow christians like the catholic church) and also amassing a lot of wealth for themselves from their congregation, instead of focusing their attention on winning souls for God. Anyway i don't blame him, afterall so many Nigerians are vulnerable because they like deluding themselves.

Yes it is church money and i like what he is using it for, he is using it for the right purpose (not misplacing priorities). Do you have a problem with him using church money for charity??
