What’s Your Experience Working In A Company Owned By A Pastor? by Nobody: 5:04pm On May 24, 2021
It’s very unfortunate that most Nigerian pastors that has companies are running their companies like gods. 3 out of 5 pastors don’t usually treat their workers well.

A friend who works in a telecom servicing company owned by a G.O of a church in Lagos has had his life stagnated because the pastor has refused to pay them going to 4months now. The worst part is that he doesn’t deem it fit to explain to them why he can’t pay.
Can you believe that a man with 3 kids would trek kilometers to work and can’t even feed his children while the GM & MD (Both of them are pastors o!) keeps buying expensive cars and building his gigantic church?

He just recently laid the foundation for his school meanwhile he owes his workers salaries going to 4months by the end of may.

So, what’s your experience? Is it good or bad?

Your friend is working for the Lord

He is sowing seed into God`s kingdom, and will reap later.

Like you said, the pastor is investing in the church, which is God`s house.

He will reap the gains one day.

I once worked for one back in 2019. Both the woman and the man were pastors. The pay was was very low and sometimes it will be half of your total salary.

One thing I noticed was that whenever they want to introduce a bad policy, they start with biblical verses and then give a flimsy reason for the decision. You cant fight it because what can you do when your coworkers has been brainwashed grin

Well when I look back now I understand why they couldn't pay or slashed salaries. The school was being constructed with different loans. They had to pay back so there is no way they won't cheat the workers if at all they intend to meet up with the loan requirements

A pastor is a human first , bad behaviors transcends the position a man/woman takes ... I Don't like it when we associate crime or bad behaviors to positions or ethnic groups or gender .. there are also good pastors around too , yours might just be an outlier . I still don't support what the CEO/MD did to you .

"Pastor" is the biggest scam title ever!

I will tell us why...

Many years ago during my NYSC, I was unfortunate to be posted to work with an NGO run by a "Pastor"..As at the time of my posting, he was expecting independent and international bodies to come for their annual Audit. This purely has to do with how he spent all the funds he received for one humanitarian project or the other. grin grin

....To make this story short, this man had no supporting documents for virtually all the transactions he did with the funds. He only had different empty receipt booklets with him which he printed to perfect his fraudulent deals...My posting brought smiles to his face as he believed I had the training to perfect records from school. angry Damn! I saw things!!!

I pissfulprotester said to myself as the going got tougher. I won't start this profession with fraud..Mba! I won't...Had to look for a way to reach my LGI..told him everything to make him see why I must leave that place. Within a week or so, I was posted out of that hell of a place.

..Don't know how I forgot to mention that the man's office was situated in the same building where he had his church...If God no gentle, aswearugad, that man would have been consumed by mother earth long ago

Before being a Pope, Bishop, Pastor or whatever title they were first humans, if they don't work on their character flaws it will show no matter the so called 'anointing'. By the way if they're going against the word of God by withholding unjustly the wages to those in their employment best believe heaven is very far from them.

Pastors are humans too. Only few of them do treat their workers right. Anyway, I'm interested in doing Bolt/uber business. Anyone with car to lease or give out as installment? I reside in Lagos

Working for a pastor is the best thing than can Happen to anyone, even if they don't pay you, God will remember your labour and sacrifice to his servant and still bless you. But if you complain or bad mouth him, then your life will be miserable. This I have seen.

Even tho........i'm never in support of the strike out.........
Pastor or not..........a business owner deserves to do whatever he likes with his money......

Stop the envy/jealousy!!!!

If the pastor likes let him buy jet for himself..........isnt that a reward of his sweet??

Well..........this ain't happening to no friend but you........if u ain't comfortable enough working in the coy then leave..........or u can as well resign and start organisation

This is a senseless post. Why single out Pastors? Pastors are humans just like you and me.
