One of the most prominent pastors of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, in the USA, Pastor Tola Odutola, has announced his resignation from the Church.
Pastor Odutola, who is the senior Pastor of Jesus House Baltimore, cited lack of care from the church in his 30 years of service.
Pastor Enoch Adeboye is the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
In a viral video, Pastor Odutola refused to disclose direct details of his reason for his decision, but revealed he had served RCCG for 30 years without receiving anything in return.
Odutola announced on Sunday his church would run independently, attracting applause from the congregation, before adding he was prepared to face backlash on social media for his decision.
The pastor said, it is also okay if members want to counter such a report online, saying that he would not do so but rather focus on the job at hand that God has given to him.
I will not throw stones. And this is the last time I would talk about my resignation.
