Most RCCG Regional Pastors Are Yorubas. In Christendom Is This Right? by josephni12: 2:30pm On Jul 14, 2016
I've personally noticed something peculiar to the Redeemed Christian church of God which I am not comfortable with. The Bible warns that we should not give chance for people to question our faith our unity in the body of Christ. In other churches, like deeper life, chosen, mountain on fire etc state and regional pastorship have always been of people of different tribes as the case may be,

But it's not so with in Redeemed Christian Church of God were MOST (not ALL about (86%)). of their regional / state pastors are most Yoruba's in almost every state in nigeria. Is it that the people mostly trusted to be Good pastors to handle that PARTICULAR POSITION are from one particular tribe? This is what is happening currently in our Government. Please, constructive criticism no tribalism.

Maybe a higher percentage of the high ranking members of the Church are Yoruba's who were loyal and fundamental to the growth of the ministry right from the early days. in a case like this, they will be more liable to become zonal Pastors when a new branch of the Church springs up.

Denominational Christianity is a curse. That's all I can tell you. Charlatans abound everywhere making merchandise of the gospel and trafficking in the souls of men. God willing , revival will come and destroy this accursed "city of man"

Oga you are wrong. It is the same in MFM. Sometime ago, I was in church MFM regional headquarters in PH, we connected to the telecast and G.O (D.R Olukoya) was introducing all the heads of the various departments in the church. Believe me, all the names I heard that day were Yoruba. I started asking myself, is everyone in Lagos Yoruba? Why should "only" Yoruba's be given group heads in the church?

Also, I noticed that all the people that have ever been regional overseers in PH regional HQ are Yorubas. This isn't right.

I like Prophet TB Joshua for this reason. He isn't a tribalist. He had 5 wise men and only 2 were Nigerians. Most of his evangelists are foreigners. He gives everyone equal opportunity irrespective of their tribe and race.

The Rccg does not ordain based on your tribe. The qualification is become a member of the church, go for new believer's class and baptismal class, get baptized, do your school of disciples training/school of missions/bible school. Stay for at least 5 years. Above all, you must be Holy Ghost baptized. Well you must have been filled with the holy ghost before water baptism unless you don't know what you are doing. With this u are qualified.
The job of a pastor is not easy. Some people reject it when call upon. It takes Abundant grace

From the general look of Christianity in Nigeria you can testify that the Yorubas are making the largest contribution than any other tribe. I think that's the reason why. This is not tribalism but an observation.

Haba, u have already introduced tribalism. Must u people fight and argue over everything, must everything comes from ur tribe. For instance, go to zenith and diamond banks that belong to igbo, most of their managers are igbo. Have u ever seen anyone complaining. This is too bad my friend. This kind of nature will never lead us anywhere as a country.

This level of tribalism in the church that has attain a new dimension and alarming state is not peculiar to RCCG, as a matter of fact, most of the churches in Nigeria can be said to be tribalistic in their dealings. I can still remember vividly how the leadership tussle in Anglican Church, Benin Dioses almost torn the church apart when some people of Benin ethnic extraction opposed the view of bringing a non Benin man to head the church after the death of the former bishop. What about the "Benin Leauge" that sued the Catholic church and also drag them before the Benin mornach that the Benin must produce the next Catholic Archbishop. The question now is, where is the leaning of the Holy Spirit in all these?
As a member of RCCG since 2002, I have had cause to discuss this issue with like minds, and the aftermath has always been shocking..
I was told how the bigwigs in a London "headquarters" of the church threatened to leave the church when a non-Yoruba was posted there to head the church. The debate became tense, and in other to pacify those that wanted the pastor to leave, the Nigerian headquarters eventually bowed to pressure and remove the non-Yoruba pastor and sunsequently replaced him before peace could prevail...
Sometimes I just feel the church is losing it. We are now in an era where first son/daughter inherit the church/ministry.
Jesus Christ had cousin among his disciples, but did not hand over to any of them, rather Apostle Peter was chosen...




May God help his church...

The biggest pastors in Nigeria are all Yoruba too. Kumuyi, Adeboye, Oyedepo, Abiara, Ashimolowo, Olukoya, T. B. Joshua, all Yoruba men. Yoruba are a deeply spiritual people, Yoruba is Judah, Judah has accommodated so many people to himself, Judah is wise, Judah obeyed the commandment to 'go into the world and multiply' and 'make disciples of all men'.

Judah=lineage+grafted.

When I thought the media attack against the body of Christ is abating, I saw this again! Devil and his agents are too small to stop the Gospel.

If you allow this satanic seed by the OP to germinate in your heart then, you have yourself to blame.

God will remain God.

You are not doing God any favour by serving him rather, you are doing yourself a favour by serving him

O.P you funny oh! you dey find federal character for church? anyway I doubt if RCCG churches are that much in the east. They're everywhere here in lagos and S/w, and these parishes are units under provinces. do the maths..the leaders are likely to be positioned according to God's wishes. If human sentiment occurs, then the south westerners in the church easily outnumber people of other zones.
