Is it only me or do you also notice that there comes about a new pastor or church in the neighborhood every new 3 months.

I have wondered why many industries aren't growing as expected but the churches are highly competitive in their industry popping up branches here and there.

Why has the tech, mining etc... industry in Nigeria not bloomed.

And to the pastors, it's strictly business....

What Pastor must eat, the members must provide

Do the church workers get paid cause I haven't seen any church delivering items to the needy or charity.

The church is adding value to lives. BTW, other industries too are growing but the growth is largely into the pockets of few. Dangote, BUA, Otedola, and co are cashing out irrespective of what you say.
