The General Overseer of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo faces criticism for appointing his second son, Isaac, as the National Youth Pastor.
This controversy arose after the youth division of the church, Youth Alive Fellowship (YAF) made an announcement on its official Facebook page, revealing the new youth pastor.
However, this announcement didn’t sit well with some Nigerians, who expressed their discontent in the comments section.
Many questioned why bishop Oyedepo appointed his son for this role while terming the move as ‘turning church to family business.’
“On the behalf of the Youths of Living Faith Church Worldwide, we say a big welcome to our National Youth Pastor, Pastor Isaac Oyedepo as he takes the Youth Alive Fellowship to the next levels of glory,” YAF posted.
